I WROTE THIS FOR YOU...

What you need to know right now about your health, losing weight, hormones + fertility

They've been lying to you

diet weight loss Feb 11, 2020

One of the hardest things you’ll have to come to terms with when you want to lose weight is that all those things you have been led to believe over the years are wrong. And, although it’s not your fault, you’ve likely been going about weight loss the wrong way.

I’m sorry to have to be the one to break it to you but the weight loss industry is based on bullsh1t science. Literally, they just made it up somewhere down the line (scandalous, I know, but I’ll show you just how ridiculous it all is in a moment).

As you read this pondering, ‘why would they do that?’ keep in mind that this diet business was worth $212.1 billion globally in 2018 alone and is expected to rise to a staggering $348.1billion by 2025. Vested interests anyone? That’s not based on people eating real food, but on buying slimming products and attending diet clubs and the like. There are so many companies literally plotting against you on this because it’s simply...

Introducing the Protefine Diet

diet protefine weight loss Mar 09, 2019

I’m delighted to announce the introduction to my practice of the Protefine Diet, which is proving hugely successful in clinic. The clients who tend to do best on a plan like this are those people who feel they need a really simple protocol to follow because they are short on time and have struggled before to fit healthy eating into their busy lives. It’s just one of the options I offer clients who come to work with me on a weight loss coaching programme, and I am one of only a very few nutrition practitioners across the country who are able to offer this product. Here are a few commonly asked questions about the diet.

What is the Proteifine Diet?

The Proteifine Diet has been in the UK since 2010 and is hugely popular in Europe and South America, and I have been trialling it with clients recently with fantastic results. I can confidently say that I have never come across a more effective approach to weight loss. 

The Proteifine Diet is a protein-based, low...

Is festive FOMO sabotaging your diet?

diet mindset weight loss Dec 13, 2018

Hey, would you like to come to this place, spend the evening at that place, have a mince pie, sausage roll, egg nog, mulled wine, taste my world-beating Christmas cake…?

And you’ll go because you can’t resist. You’ll feast like you’ll never see another meal, and you’ll consume frightening amounts of festive tipples because otherwise you’ll be missing out on all the fun, right?

FOMO – shorthand for ‘fear of missing out’ –is the acute and often unjustified belief that everyone is having way more fun than you. And it reaches its annual high any day now.

Small wonder. Apparently, the British cram 44% more social occasions into December than any other month.

But FOMO really is not your friend this month (or indeed any month) – especially if you want to maintain your weight over the holidays.

Let’s take a look at how that festive FOMO usually pans out…

The secret sauce of weight loss

diet mindset weight loss Nov 15, 2018

I wonder how long you have spent over the course of your life searching for the magic pill when it comes to weight loss? And how much money you have spent on miracle products that promised to make the weight drop off overnight – or at least not make the business of losing weight seem so tricky?  

First things first, if you are someone who has spent a significant amount of times in slimming clubs, what you should know is that almost certainly you have been taught to eat the wrong things. And the community mindset seems to be about finding ways to cheat the diet. It’s no wonder people lose weight and put it straight back on again. Of course, actually eating the right things will help you lose the weight naturally, without calorie counting. And eating the way I show my clients has them naturally wanting to eat the foods that will love their body rather than deciding to seek solace in a bag of Haribos.

What the slimming clubs miss is the vital mindset element of losing...

How to disappear bad food habits

cravings diet Oct 18, 2018

If you're struggling with your weight, I'm betting that you have got some bad food habits going on. It's not just the knowledge of WHAT to eat. Knowledge – surprisingly – isn't what makes the biggest difference when you're trying to lose weight (and this is why everyone who wants to lose weight really needs a coach!).

How to get rid of those bad habits

You might not like this, but that’s the way it goes with tough love. Getting rid of bad habits is ONLY about  taking responsibility. You see, it’s all very easy filing all of this under ‘well, it’s my habits’… And then leaving it where it is. "I would change, but it’s a habit” (and similar). It is astonishingly easy in life to make excuses like this to less ourselves off the hook. Isn’t it? What are the examples in your life where you do that?

Another thing to just try on while we are at it is that in life generally, our generation (compared to that of our...

Is coconut oil unhealthy (and other things you need to know about fat)

diet what to eat Sep 20, 2018

Should you or shouldn't you eat fat? There are so many mixed and confusing messages in the media, perpetuated sometimes by people who should know better (or worse still, others with dubious motives), I don't blame you for not having the faintest idea whether it's still OK to eat full fat or whether you should be heading back to the 0% again...  

Just in case you don't read all the way through, DON'T go back to 0% fat. It's a trick. Bad for your health in general and worse for your waistline. 

And what about coconut oil? Suddenly it's the Darth Vader of fat?  Got that covered, too. 

Ready to get this sorted for once and for all? It's a bit War + Peace in terms of length, but there's a lot to say!

OK, so park that notion that fat is bad. It is not. In fact, most of us aren’t eating enough of it. Fat can help you lose weight, protect against heart disease, absorb vitamins and boost your immune system. Do you know which fats to eat and which to avoid?

Should I try the keto diet?

Ketogenic (‘keto’) diets are back in fashion.

You’ve probably read the headlines and wondered whether you should take the plunge if the results are really that dramatic and that easy. But are they, though?

Ever found yourself asking this:

How can I burn fat faster than ever?

How can I make my fat disappear?

 Then you’ll want to read on…

This newsletter will give you the inside line on what the diet involves, whether it’s healthy and even sustainable for ‘normal’ people. Here goes …

The keto diet is the ultimate low carb diet. It’s also moderate in terms of protein and very high in fat.

Is the 'keto' diet like the Atkins diet?, you say.

Well, yes. In essence, it’s pretty much like the Atkins diet, but its fans like to describe it as a more modern version of it, now with a solid scientific basis. Recent research over the last decade or so has provided evidence of the therapeutic potential of ketogenic diets in...

Sugar lips, fat hips

diet weight loss Jun 08, 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a stone for the last few years, you can’t have failed to notice that sugar is really bad for you. Seriously. Step-away-from-the-cupcakes-or-risk-your-life-kind of dangerous. Well, almost. It’s certainly been conclusively proven to be the single thing that’s going to make you fat. Not fat, as we’d always been told. Sugar. Eat too much sugar and you will get fat. Simple.

There's more bad news... 

HERE’S HOW THAT SUGAR THING WORKS

It’s all to do with blood sugar balance. Keep your blood sugar stable and your weight stays stable. Blood sugar that see-saws because you’re eating too much sugar leads to weight gain. 


In a nutshell, many foods (like potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, snacks, cakes and biscuits, fruit and vegetables, etc.) are broken down into sugars so that the body can use them as fuel. Refined carbs (like sugary foods and snacks) and starchy veg and other carbs (like potatoes, white rice,...
