As a qualified medical doctor, journalist and nutritional geneticist who’s obsessed with stripping back the BS that the diet industry thrives on, I’m a firm advocate of health solutions that actually work.

I graduated from University College London Medical School in London, UK, after which I worked as a junior doctor in gastroenterology at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Hospital in London, before taking time out to explore other career interests (I’m also a qualified journalist who’s worked for the BBC and CNN to name a few).

My first degree was a BSc in Human Genetics, which involved extensive research into the field of nutritional genomics (the study of how a person’s genes affects the way he or she responds to different dietary nutrients). My time spent researching this lesser-known area of nutrition revealed the most effective way of keeping weight off and helped me finally end my own decade-long struggle with yo-yo dieting and weight gain.

My passion now lies in showing women how easy it is to take control of their bodies and diets by eating for their unique body physiology.

I work one-to-one with women who are struggling with diet-related health complaints, weight gain and poor dietary habits  – helping them take total control of their diets and create their healthiest bodies ever. Learn more here…. or email me directly at to discuss how we can work together.

I can also be found using science to call BS on all those health products and diets that claim they’ll ‘transform your life’. So if you’re feeling confused by the amount of conflicting health advice in the public domain and don’t know what works, head over to my blog. There’s no hype, no BS, just facts.

Take a look at this article on how food labels trick you into thinking you’re eating healthily when you’re actually eating junk to get you started on your health journey.
