Jo Travers BSc RD (The London Nutritionist)
Jo Travers, The London Nutritionist and author of The Low-Fad Diet, is a state Registered Dietitian with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Human Nutrition & Dietetics. She has been in private practice for five years, and in her media role has consulted for the BBC; Channel 4; and comments regularly in print and on radio (more often than not as the voice of reason when the latest outlandish food story hits the news).
Please see her media page and YouTube channel for a selection of videos and articles. She writes for Vitality and Travelling Peach.
She is also a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association.
Sessions are usually 50 minutes depending on your personal therapy needs.
Together we will look at your current diet and lifestyle along with your goals and come up with a plan to help you get where you want to be. Prior to our first meeting, I may ask you to keep a diet and activity diary to help establish your current situation. Afterwards I will email you a summary of the session along with any supporting information we discuss.
You can have as many or as few sessions as you feel you need. I would usually see most clients three or more times but some I see just once and others I have been providing support to for over a year, so it's entirely up to you.
I offer support via email between appointments.
I offer a professional, confidential, evidenced-based service that provides individual advice to meet your personal situation and requirements, whether that is weight management; pre-conception, pregnancy and infant nutrition; childhood nutrition including fussy eating, overweight & behavioural problems; a specific diet plan to manage a medical condition such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and its associated stress; low energy; or sports nutrition for optimum performance.
The science of nutrition looks at the provision of necessary nutrients to the body to support life, health and growth. Many common health problems can be prevented, managed and improved with a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, eating and our relationships with food are individual, emotive and often far from scientific, therefore an approach tailored to each client achieves better results more quickly.

The Low-Fad Diet is for people who want to lose weight and be healthy but don’t have the time or inclination to follow a complex weight loss diet dictated by a guru, but instead want a few basic guidelines to help them make better choices.
Although this book is a kind of diet book, it isn’t solely to help people to lose weight. This book is for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of basic nutrition for everyday life. There will always be more you can learn about food and nutrition, but this book provides an overview of the most relevant bits for most people.
