I don’t often talk about my skin conditions, but eczema is a common condition which I help many clients with in clinic, so, I thought I’d share with you my experience on how I healed my eczema naturally. When I was a child until my early 20’s I used to suffer with eczema. It would often be itchy and painful and would come and go all the time in the creases of my arms, legs, random spots on my stomach, hands, arms and sometimes around my eyes. I could never really put it down to anything specific except for having “sensitive skin”. Before studying nutrition and learning how the body worked I thought eczema was something I had to live with forever. Boy was I wrong!Read More

If you want to lose weight, what would your answer be if I asked you “why do you struggle to lose weight”? Answers I commonly get to this questions in clinic is to do with emotional eating, eating out of boredom, portion control, struggling to say no to “office treats”, feeling too restricted or losing motivation. This doesn’t come to surprise me, a lot of people I see in clinic often have tried dieting, restricting foods, followed a new food trend (paleo, low carb, fasting) or followed what worked for their friend or family member, which is a problem. One size does not fit all. Typical methods of losing weight are often too restrictive, lack flexibility and this doesn’t often fit into your schedule and everyday life.Read More

Recently I’ve seen an increase in vegetarian and vegan clients. Many of which have only become vegetarian or vegan from watching documentaries such as Cowspiracy or What The Health. My opinion on those documentaries can be saved for another day, but, if you are considering giving up meat and becoming a vegetarian there are a few things you need to consider.Read More
Almost every weeknight for the past couple of years I've made this overnight oat recipe for my hubby in the evenings so he can grab it and go in the morning, or, if he doesn't start super early he heats it on the stove to make a warm porridge. Every now and then I make it for myself as well. It's a staple recipe we've both loved for years. This recipe is loaded with healthy fats, protein and complex carbs making it a nutrient rich breakfast which keeps both of us satisfied until lunch time. You can even make it in large batches ahead of time (for 4-5 days) and portion it out in the morning.Read More
When wanting to lose weight the common theme I see in clinic is people ramping up their exercise routine and eating less. In theory it makes sense – burn more calories than you eat, and the kilos will come off. But, the truth is which study after study has shown that, in the long run dieting is rarely effective. Eating a low calorie diet for a long period of time does not improve your health and can do more harm than good.Read More
