“Personalised nutrition is all about the individual and I like to tailor lifestyle goals to the person I am helping. My ultimate goal is to help my clients feel better. That is the most rewarding aspect of my work.”
Pregnancy can be rewarding but is also sometimes stressful. It is an important time for a baby’s development, and Susan can help mums-to-be eat healthily, gain a healthy amount of weight and return to their pre-pregnancy weight after the baby is born. Nutrition is important to ensure babies’ nutrient requirements are met and that they can develop to their full potential.
Breastfeeding provides a healthy start for a baby and can also help new mums get back to their pre-pregnancy weight. Susan can help by recommending feeding routines, proper nutrition or supplemental feeding. Susan has helped many mums and toddlers with fussy eating, plant-based nutrition and intolerances.
Introducing new foods is an exciting time in a baby’s life, but it can also be a worrying time for some parents. Susan has experience working in children’s centres in London where she helped parents introduce different types of foods at the right time and dealt with fussy eaters. Developing a child’s food tastes under the age of five can help them enjoy a wide variety of foods throughout their life.
Going through the menopause does not have to be a challenging time for women. Nutrition advice can help with side-effects, maintain bone density, strengthen cardiovascular health, and prevent weight gain. Support during this time can help us to maintain health as we age and to be the best we can at any age.
Various gastro-intolerances and food intolerances can be diagnosed. Here are a few common conditions to be helped by NutritionU.
If you’re not sure whether or not you have intolerance to milk or gluten, Susan can help you identify the foods which are causing you discomfort and suggest alternatives to reduce your symptoms, while also ensuring your diet provides all the necessary nutrients. Tests can be ordered through the Functional Gut Clinic in London to be sent to you in the comfort of your own home.
Gut health has been linked to many unpleasant symptoms and now even obesity. There is no need to suffer alone, as you can get help to reduce bloating and improve your gut health. Susan can help you identify your food triggers and suggest alternatives which, together with a healthy diet and pro-biotics, can help you to remain symptom free.
Ulcerative Colitis can be improved with proper dietary management. If you need help with ideas for healthy nutrition or if you need help during flare-ups, Susan can provide professional advice.
Diet can be forgotten in the treatment of Crohn’s Disease, but this condition can be treated with diet as well as with medication/supplements.
Susan can also provide nutrition advice for conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, allergies, and skin conditions.
The main treatment for IBS is to make adjustments to your diet. Susan can help to identify the foods causing your discomfort so you can live a symptom-free life. She can support you with an elimination diet or a FODMAP diet, which has been shown to be highly effective in dealing with IBS.
If you’ve wondered why it is so tough to lose weight, and why you’re not seeing improved muscle tone even though you are working out, it could be what and when you are eating. And you are not alone. The report, Statistics on Obesity, Physical Activity and Diet, England (2020), found that most adults were overweight or obese. This figure stood at 67% for men and 60% for women – while 20% of Year 6 children were classed as obese. Research also shows that only 25% of us are eating the recommended 5-A-Day.
Plant-based nutrition has been shown to reduce cardiovascular risk, be higher in fibre and to contribute to a lower body weight. Susan has a Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University and experience of working as a Nutrition Consultant with the Vegetarian Society so she can use her expertise to help adapt your diet to become more plant-based, or to improve your vegetarian diet.
Many people now want to eliminate all animal products. Adopting a vegan diet can be a healthy option, as there are a wide variety of foods and vegan substitutes which provide the nutrients available in animal-based foods. Susan can help with recipe ideas, meal-planning, or supplements.
Athletics need proper nutrition to achieve their exercise goals. A plant-based diet can help to achieve this through healthy meal plans. Athletic nutritional requirements are higher for some nutrients, such as protein and iron. Susan can advise athletes how to meet these requirements while adopting a plant-based diet.
Ever wonder why you are feeling bloated after eating certain food? Well, there are now diagnostic tests available with NutritionU. Both are non-evasive tests completed in the comfort of your own home.
They are breath tests to determine if you have an intolerance to lactose or fructose, these are carbohydrates found in dairy and many fruits and veggies.
Take the guess work out of your health and stop the bloating sensation.
