About me

I am an online-based, qualified nutritional therapist specialising in weight loss and blood sugar management.

What I learned over the years is that weight has little to do with the number of calories we ingest and more to do with the hormonal impact that food has on our body.

A calorie is simply a unit of energy (more specifically, the energy required to raise the temperature of 1g of water by 1-degree Celsius) but it does not instruct your body as to what to do with it.

This is what hormones are for.

Hormones are messenger chemicals that control and coordinate activities throughout your body.

Different foods trigger different hormones, which affect how the body reacts to the food and whether it will burn it as fuel or store it as fat.

For instance, 500 calories of broccoli is not the same as 500 calories of fudge.

One will be more likely to cause weight gain and it would be very difficult to get fat from just eating broccoli.

But how can this be when "a calorie is just a calorie" and "calories in calories out", etc.?

Because knowing how different foods affect the body is more effective in controlling weight than simply counting every calorie without any regard as to what the source of the calorie is and how this impacts the body hormonally.

I take an individualistic approach, based on the latest scientific research in my methods to try to determine the best strategy for the best outcome for you, taking into account lifestyle, routines and food preferences to help you to reach your aims.

In order to achieve this, I will take a thorough case history which typically takes  90 - 120 minutes and will involve going through all of your medical history (past and present), lifestyle, obstacles which may be preventing you from reaching your aims and finding the best way to circumvent these.
