About Me

My photo
Technically speaking, I'm a dietitian, but I see myself as a listener, a motivator, coach and teacher of nutrition. I prefer to end a busy day with a glass of red wine while chopping vegetables. Lover of almost anything pickled and fresh baked scones just not at the same time. I'm happiest when I'm cooking for people I love. Why am I so into food? Because I KNOW how much eating well can change your life. What you eat every day is going to impact your body and your mind. It's a confusing world out there - full of diet and food advice that always leaves you feeling like it's that one next diet that's going to be the weight loss answer. Stop waiting for that magic diet, and begin to take one step at a time in the right direction. I'm here to help you on your life-long journey, there's no better time to start!

Belly Bulge - slim it down to reduce risk of serious complications.

Your health is not just based on a number on the scale - in fact, I always encourage my clients to look at all the indicators of their progress - fitness level, waist circumference, body composition (% body fat and lean mass), how they FEEL, quality of sleep, blood cholesterol and triglycerides, blood pressure, medication levels (can you reduce or eliminate one or more meds that are nutrition-related?).....

Here is a summary of expert opinion on what we are starting to learn about abdominal fat and it's effect on morbidity and mortality. My Dad sent me this....and now I'd like to share it with you.
