Broadcasting and books

A background in words

Amanda's career in communications started as the guest editor of one of Scotland's broadsheet supplements during her university years. Journalism soon led to a career in TV and radio broadcasting that has remained central ever since.

After going back to university to study nutrition, her focus shifted away from news reporting to all matters health. Over the fifteen years that have followed, highlights included publishing four health-related books, including Eat, Fast, Slim a top 10 Amazon best-seller, and the G Plan Diet, that's been translated into multiple languages.

Amanda continues to writes columns for several health titles and newspaper features in addition to regular blogging.


In the UK Amanda is best known as the long-standing co-presenter of BBC's Something for the Weekend, a live Sunday morning show, and a range of health programmes including Spa of Embarrassing Illnesses, Landward, How to Live Longer and Should I worry About...? with Top Gear's Richard Hammond.

Her combined experience in live broadcasting and nutrition means she remains in high demand as a guest expert and commentator for programmes such as Sky News, BBC Radio's Steve Wright show and many morning magazine programmes. She acted as the guinea pig presenter in a documentary for ITV's Tonight programme called Food Facts and Fiction, the Great British Diet.

The crossover from presenter to co-producer was a natural step, culminating on the sale of a health format she developed to a US network in 2014.
