"Bringing Health To Life" is my mission. My journalistic grounding helps me sift through the wealth of (often contradictory) nutritional information, to form an overall view. My aim is to help spread the word and share the learnings for the greater good.
I stay away from the ideological turf wars that doggedly turn up whenever diets are discussed, what’s right for one person is not necessarily right for another. Besides, if I ever feel myself being swayed, I hear the echoes of my Highland grandmother and the voice of my mother who’d quickly put “such nonsense” in its place as they scamper up Scottish hills and eat their porridge.
It’s why I called my weight loss programme Honest. It’s a commitment to, and my respect for, the subject I am passionate about. Good nutrition transforms lives. The plagues of our society that will kill most of us before our time are the non-communicable diseases. Obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are wholly preventable and almost always reversible if caught in time, and, in the Covid era, reducing those risk factors matter even more. We should set raise our expectations - why not seek to feel - and look - like the best version of yourself?
I’m no longer coy about my mission. It’s too important and time feels ever more finite. You can read more about my approach here. Paying it forward is vital too. This year I’ve launched my educational programmes and from them we will make donations to rebuild classrooms devastated by earthquakes using bricks made from plastic taken from the polluted ocean in Indonesia.
When I work with people we focus on four core themes:
- Find the most effective way for your body to lose fat and keep in shape long term. It is not about chasing a number on the scale, skinny-fat is just as risky.
- Build the best diet and lifestyle plan to prevent disease, get healthy and get your mojo back.
- Create a stress buffer, and experience mindfulness as a daily reality.
- Align with the body’s rhythms to slow ageing and beat the biological clock.
Movement is also medicine. Being in nature soothes my soul, and staying active is a daily need. My background in international level sports has evolved into training in Pilates and Barre, classes are included in all retreats and online programmes.
Last but never least, I am a mother of two great kids. Like so many others I care deeply about the worrying trends that the next generation, and our planet, are inheriting, understanding all the while that keeping nutrition and lifestyle advice real and realistic is vital for success - and sanity.
