Do You Feel Judged When You Eat?

Nobody-can-make-you-feel-inferior-without-your-consent 7 Health

Before setting up as a nutritionist I had a regular job. I worked for local government, as a housing benefits officer. I would make decisions on how much the unemployed or low-income earners would be paid to help with their rent. It was something I fell into when I first moved from Sydney to London but I ended up doing it for 7 years. Despite definitely not being ‘my calling’, it was really flexible and allowed me to study nutrition and subsequently set up my own company. I remember when I worked in the job just how much I used to eat. Every day I would be taking in mountains of food and … [Read more...]

Getting A Bikini Body

Semi-Exclusive... Rachel & Hayden Enjoying A Day On The Beach In Barbados

While I don’t want to jinx anything, London has been having a pretty amazing summer. It started early and just keeps on going. This is the second summer in a row of smashing weather and it just makes such a difference. Long live the warm weather (hopefully not to the detriment to the planet). It’s the kind of temperature that normally leads to more skin being on show. The bikini body is something most women aspire to but it’s years like this that really give you a chance to show it off (or alternatively spend more time trying to hide it). Aesthetics can often be the driver for what … [Read more...]

Last week I hosted my webinar on Why Your Attempt To Eat Healthy Is Actually Creating Poor Health. I was really happy with how it went and the feedback has been amazing.

Free Webinar 7 Health

TO REGISTER CLICK HERE. At the beginning of the year I did 73 free one-off consults with people. Each of these consults were about an hour long, so this amounted to a lot of time speaking to people one on one about their diet and the symptoms they were dealing with. From working with clients over the last 5 years I have a pretty solid understanding of things. But this process really cemented a number of ideas I have had for a long time, confirming it in black and white terms. The first thing it showed was that the majority of people are suffering with the same common issues. There were … [Read more...]

The Truth About Beauty Interview

Nutrition 7 Health

I recently did an interview with the The Truth About Beauty blog which you can see here. Below is a copy of the interview.  Today I want to share an interview I did with nutritionist Chris Sandel. I met Chris a couple of years ago through mutual friends and was very interested to find out more about his company 7 Health (http://www.seven-health.com/). What I find refreshing about Chris is his take on nutrition differs so much to what you read in the mainstream media. Chris is going to start contributing articles to The Truth About Beauty and hopefully this interview gives you a bit of an … [Read more...]

Inequality, Health And The 80/20 Principle

80-20 Rule 7 Health

There is a concept known as 80/20 Principle or Pareto's Principle that looks at the inequality that naturally occurs in nature, society and many other areas of life. This idea was really hammered home while reading a book called 80/20 Sales and Marketing by Perry Marshall. Yes it is a business book but it lead to an ah-ha moment that can easily be applied to health, making large improvements with less effort. The principle states that in many situations 80% of the results come from 20% of the cause. While the ratios aren’t always 80/20, and could be 95/5 or 70/30, the idea is that there is … [Read more...]

Digestion and Energy

Tired and Low Energy

I recently did a survey with my mailing list asking people what they want me to write about. While there were lots of topics people were interested in, there were some issues that kept coming up again and again. Low energy and poor digestion were two such issues that many people seem to be suffering with. So in today’s blog I want to give you some tips for how to improve both these areas through diet and lifestyle changes. The first suggestion is to focus on easy to digest food. I see countless clients who suffer with IBS and digestive issues and when I go through their food diary I am … [Read more...]
