Looking to improve your health? Eat for health with science backed nutrition and the healthy eating doctor.
The old adage ‘we are what we eat’ has never been more important. With a wealth of contradictory information published about the latest ‘superfoods’, or what not to eat, how do you navigate a path to find what is best for you? Do you feel overwhelmed by contradictory and conflicting information? Unsure who to trust? Would love to eat for your health but don’t know where to start?
There are healthy choices that you could be making now which mean a rich array of tasty nutritious food, that may improve the quality of your life and reduce your future risk of disease. For more information look at my health page, where you will find articles on the the science of nutrition and wellness.
My aim is to show you which nutrition headlines have some good quality scientific evidence behind them and help you identify the ‘fact’ from the ‘fiction’. I chose the name of my business ‘Healthy Eating doctor’ to convey that I’m a doctor, who integrates nutrition, health and scientific evidence, to help you eat for health.
Based on questions from clients, I’ve designed Free Resources designed to give you a general frame work for your nutritional needs. I know how difficult it can be to eat healthily, and also find credible dietary information at different stages of your life. There are guides for fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, polycystic ovary syndrome and menopause.
Sign up for more fact not fiction information via my eat for health newsletter, with links to my latest health articles, podcasts, courses and more. I’ve authored two books ‘Eating During Pregnancy‘ and ‘Postpartum Nutrition: An Expert’s Guide to Eating After a Baby and Beyond‘.
I studied medicine at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge and University College London and was a paediatric doctor for over a decade. I have completed a PhD in cancer genetics from UCL and hold a postgraduate Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
I am a Registered Nutritionist, specialising in Nutrition Science, with the Association for Nutrition, and have an accreditation for Applied Human Nutrition from The University of Cambridge. I no longer practice as a doctor, but instead provide nutritional consultancy, and lecture on culinary science and nutrition.
