About me

I'm Abi - a BANT registered Nutritional Therapist - specialising in Sport and Performance Nutrition, Female Hormones & Weight Management.

I'm passionate about supporting people to transform their diet and to learn how to use foods to transform their daily life, whether that is balancing your energy to support your weight loss (or weight gain!!), identifying how to fuel your training - whether you're training for an endurance event or you just enjoy running/cycling/iron man/ strength training or eating and training for your menstrual cycle and to support your hormonal balance.

My personal story.
In my early 20s I lost 25kg through clearing up my diet and a growing love of running, a love that found me with a 2017 London Marathon place. Training was halted by an extreme lack of energy and a consequential 3 months in bed and a slowly diagnosed iron deficiency and resultant fatigue.

In a supermarket one night I picked up a cold pressed green juice and on drinking it felt invincible with the most energy I'd had in weeks. I was amazed that a food fix could work when at this stage modern medicine had not.

I have since been able to run 2 marathons, a handful of half's and maintain a regular training plan and have maintained my weight loss for over 10 years.
