ABOUT

Looking for friendly, expert advice you can trust? You’ve come to the right place.

I’m Laura, a UK Registered Dietitian and health writer.

I’m fascinated by how food makes us feel, think and live, and I’m passionate about helping you understand the relationship between what goes on your plate and what happens in your body.

My journey into nutrition started more than 10 years ago, at undergraduate level. Since then I’ve completed three further degrees in nutrition, and I now specialise in weight loss, digestive health,  IBS and sports nutrition.

I’ve come to realise that it’s not just about what we eat, but why we eat – understanding how emotions, habits and lifestyles affect our eating habits is a big part of the puzzle. Having recently completed training in mindful eating, I’m convinved that tuning into our body’s regulatory signals (hunger and satiety) and finding what feels good is key in acheiving a happy healthy relationship with food.

I’ll admit that nutrition science isn’t easy to get your head around. One minute it’s five-a-day, then it’s ten. Some people say carbs are OK, others have a pretty convincing argument that a grain-free diet is best.

Confused?  I feel you! Every day we’re told something a bit different, but quite often it’s opinion rather than science. And sometimes we don’t have enough evidence to be sure. I hope to make things easier to understand by breaking down the science we do have, and helping you understand the links between what goes on your plate, and your health and wellbeing.

    Hi Laura,
    I have arthritis, both types oa and ra and was seeing my consultant yesterday, who injected my fingers for osto arthritis.
    She recommended taking turmeric in my food.
    Last night as i was reading a magazine, “simply you” i read about turmeric and your suggestion of “eating turmeric with oily fish to help absorption.”
    Can i ask how much turmeric would you add to a piece of fish?
    Is it an overwhelming type of spice?
    I am so glad to have come across your site and will now be looking at it thoroughly!!!
    Many thanks,

    Mary
