Personal nutrition is easier than you think!

Susan is a Registered Dietitian/Nutrition Consultant and has the expertise to help you make sense of all the confusing nutritional information that’s available online. She tailors her advice to your needs and offers group or 1-2-1 sessions, cookery lessons, tips for food shopping and MOTs for your cupboards. Susan can meet you at your home or in clinic and can advise you how to fill your cupboards with healthy, nutritious foods. She can help with general nutrition, women’s health and clinical diseases.

“There is no one-size approach to eating healthily. 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.”

Susan can help with the following conditions:

Women's Health

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

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.

“Pregnancy is such a special time and it’s so important to get the right nutrition for baby and mum. I love to help mums-to-be give their little ones the best start in life.”

Weaning

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.

Menopause

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.

“I have met so many women who have struggled as they go through the menopause, but it doesn’t need to be like this. Lifestyle changes – like healthy eating, exercise and prioritising well-being - can empower women to feel at their best at any age. It’s wonderful to see that there is much more support for all of us at this stage in our lives.”

Clinical Conditions

Registered Dietitians are trained in many clinical area such as Vitamin  deficiencies, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. All of these can be helped with a healthier diet.

Gastro-intestinal disorders

Various gastro-intolerances and food intolerances can be diagnosed.  Here are a few common conditions to be helped by NutritionU.

Lactose and Gluten Intolerance

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.

Bloating

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.

“I see so many clients in discomfort in our modern world, and I find this so sad, because there’s no need to suffer in silence. In most cases, I can work with clients to find out what is causing the symptoms and to help them stop the cycle of stomach discomfort.” 

Ulcerative Colitis

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.

Crohn’s Disease

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.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

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.

Resources from here Kings College London will be provided to help you follow the FODMAP diet.

General Nutrition

Weight Loss Programmes

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.

We did not get to this point overnight, so we cannot make healthy changes and lose weight overnight. But there are small changes we can make to overcome these statistics.

If you reduce your alcohol intake by just one unit per day, you can lose a pound per month, which can add up to one stone in a year.
If you eat dinner from a small side plate instead of a dinner plate, you still empty your plate as your mum used to say, but you are eating less.

Add in a little physical activity, like taking the stairs instead of the lift, or walking to work instead of taking the bus, and this weight loss can double, getting you to your goal in half the time.

Susan has a Masters in Obesity and more than 20 years’ experience of helping people to lose weight, and importantly, to maintain their weight loss. She can design you a personalised programme, which could include a Personal Trainer, DNA diet testing, meal plans, specific diets and nutrition counselling. Counselling is bespoke and she designs your programme with you, to suit your personal needs and lifestyle and to help you reach your goals. All of this can be virtual or in person depending on your location.

Plant-based Nutrition

Vegetarian

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.

Vegan

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.

“I like incorporating plant-based foods into all my clients’ diets, even if only for one day a week. It’s great to work with clients who are passionate about adopting a plant-based diet and want to meet all their nutritional goals while also reducing our carbon footprint.”

Athletes

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.

“I have been fortunate enough to help clients run marathons, ultra-marathons, complete Ironman events, climb mountains and even motorcross treks. Surprisingly, they sometimes forget that nutrition can improve their endurance, help them exercise faster and prevent injuries so they can be the best they can be.”

Want to know what sport is best suited to your DNA? A test kit can determine this and can be used to reach your best athletic potential.
