I’m passionate about food and health.


Have you eaten badly and suffered?  I spent about 10 years overweight, hungry all the time, tired all the time, miserable and moody with bad skin and a weak immune system.  Then I learned to eat well and now I feel 19 (even though I’m over 50)!I know what it’s like to be without my health and it’s hell.  Not being able to do all the things I wanted to do was so frustrating.  In the end I got ill – for a year and a half!  I’m never going back there!

You have your own story and face your own challenges.  You deserve to have great health and happiness too – so that you can do all the things you enjoy.  Let me help you learn to eat well. Contact me.

What’s Nutrition Coaching all about then?  When you have a consultation or come on a course, you’ll gain confidence to make good food choices.  You’ll give your body what it needs for healthy weight loss and to feel great.  It’s all about real food that you can buy yourself; I have no pills or potions to sell you.  You set your targets and I promise never to weigh you.

Top Six Eat Well Blog Posts

For some insights to eating well, here are some of my very best blog posts for you starting with why I’m slim.  Part of the secret is not to go on a diet.  Here’s why.  Another is to eat real, fresh food which is what The Mediterranean Diet is really all about in spite of how various organisations have manipulated and misrepresented it recently.  To see how people do eat in Italy, check out what I say about Food on TV and catch up with Inspector Montalbano.

If you’re worried that cooking is difficult or takes too long, read this piece inspired by a friend who told me “Cooking is common sense and the application of heat.”  Don’t use vegetable oil for cooking though; take a peek at Omega 6, The Devil’s Fat.

Eating when you travel can be as easy as eating at home

– with a little foresight.





So pause to consider the massive impact on your life from what you eat.  If you want to feel great, a few well-chosen, simple changes can make a world of difference.  Britain is a nation in crisis and I can’t turn the tide; but I can help you if you’ve decided you want better for yourself:

a better body – better health – more energy – freedom from diets

– a life doing the things you want

My clients love one-to-one Nutrition Coaching and my Eat for a Better Life group programme.  Here are just a few comments:

It’s life changing / such freedom around food / I can dance all night / I don’t diet anymore / My trousers are too big / I feel more alert, purposeful, enthusiastic, calm at work

Here’s my full story:

Following official advice while an international sports woman, I ate a diet considered very healthy; low in fat with lots of fruit and veg.

Did I feel great?  NO.  I was overweight, perpetually hungry, always tired (I mean all the time), often felt dizzy and suffered from bad skin, depression and mood swings. Many of you will know how frustrating it is to try to eat well, thinking you’re doing the right thing but not getting the result you hoped for. My 30s were a decade of misery.

Searching from relief from an 18 month illness, I took a metabolic type test. I was amazed to discover that my ‘healthy’ eating style was far from good for me. It turns out that we’re all different and need to eat differently, “one man’s meat really is another man’s poison.”  In 2004 I radically changed my eating style, my excess weight melted away, my energy came back, my mood stabilized and I’ve felt great ever since.  I’m over 50 now and I feel 19.

If you’ve known the misery of being without your health or being overweight or worn out, if you’ve had enough and want more, you too can enjoy the benefits of eating well.


Wishing you well

  1. Thank you for the talk you did at Harwell today Jackie. It was most informative and interesting. I’m inspired to try a more healthy diet to see if it help with my anxiety disorder as well as general well being. How great it would be not to feel bloated, lacking in energy and to be able to think clearly¬
