I've been there, I know what it's like and how hard it is to quit sugar. 7+ years ago if you put chocolate in front of me I would have demolished the whole thing in one sitting. And if someone offered me a slice of cake and told me to stop at one slice I would look at them and think they are crazy. Quitting sugar is a real problem, and something I help clients with on a weekly basis in clinic.Read More

Lost Your ‘GetUpandGo?’
Most people have experienced low energy or fatigue at some point in their lives. After juggling home, work and family life, it’s no wonder there is little energy left for yourself! Anyone can feel tired at the end of the day, but ongoing fatigue can sneak up on you and become your ‘new normal’ – even though it’s not normal to be tired all the time. Persistent fatigue can often be misunderstood, as diagnostic procedures (such as blood tests) may not show any imbalance within your body. If you have persistent fatigue, don’t accept this as normal.Read More

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
