Nutrition is a huge passion of mine and has been a big part of my life ever since I started cooking for myself aged 16. Over the past 12 years it’s fair to say I have learned a lot !
After overcoming Anorexia Nervosa aged 17, my teens and early twenties were a battle of binge eating, yoyo dieting and terrible self-esteem. I felt fat, unhealthy and unhappy.
However , I decided I needed to figure out why I was doing the things I was doing, achieve a body I was happy with, and most importantly, be happy.
So I educated myself- graduating with a 2:1 degree in Biomedical Science BSc ( Hons) from the University of Leeds, my degree specialised in Medical Science ,Pharmacology, Neuroscience , Anatomy and Physiology , however my passion lay in Nutrition, and I took electives in pure nutrition wherever I could.
I also began to heal myself- with a lot of mindset work, CBT and counselling.It was at this stage I decided I wanted to help other people overcome the issues I had-I completed three nutrition courses, culminating in me undertaking and qualifying as a Body Type Nutrition Coach in September 2016, achieving a score of 97.8%. it was at this stage I quit my full time job as the Accounts Manager of a law firm in St Albans, to become a Nutritionist, coaching women in female fat loss- so that they can lose weight, that stays off- ditching the fad diets for good.
It is important to me and my clients that I tow the line between practical and research-based procedures. I find a middle ground where people are getting results in both health and performance, whilst maintaining a life balance. Rather than devising a dogmatic meal plan, I support and educate my clients on nutrition, so that they fully understand this arena. The fitness industry can naturally be hotbed for gimics and diet fads-It is very important for me to educate people away from these, we simply need to get the diet right without the need for supplements or crash dieting- this brings about the obvious health and performance benefits for my clients, but also saves them money in the long run!
I have also been through the journey and the practicalities of being a busy twenty-something trying to balance a healthy lifestyle and time constraints!
