Nutritics : quality nutrition analysis software, a freelance dietitians’ perspective

15 May 2019

Here’s a review the nutrition analysis software Nutritics, which is currently my most valuable tool in delivering a quality service to my clients.  My background is as an NHS dietitian where I worked in hospitals for over 10 years, but for the past 6 years I’ve been fully freelance.  I work in a few areas:…

Fuelling For Females

16 October 2018

Female athletes are special because we can process oxygen more quickly than males, which means we’re naturally more athletic. Yes men have more testosterone and so find it easier to build muscle, but our oestrogen and progesterone means we’re more suited to endurance exercise. Not only that but these female sex hormones if kept in…

10 top tips to reach your 10-A-Day

27 April 2017

I was pretty confident in my abilities to meet the 5-A-Day guidelines for fruit and vegetable intake. I would exceed this target and feel virtuous about my fantastic  7 or 8 rainbow portions of lovely fruits and veggies that I had eaten that day. I felt I’d pretty much optimised my fruit and veg intake….

Bloated stomach? a low FODMAP diet could be the answer…

14 July 2016

We’re well into Summer now and if like many men and women you regularly experience bloating, you will be having wardrobe dramas in addition to the miserable abdominal discomfort bloating brings. No matter if you are a size 16 or a size 8 a bloated belly is not compatible with bikinis or bodycon dresses. The…

10 Healthy Snacks to nourish your body & fill your belly!

09 June 2016

My name’s Helen and I’m a snackaholic! My clients often tell me it’s my advise on snacking that improves their energy levels, mood, and outlook on food in general. My ethos is to focus on nourishing your body, feel good about those in between snacks, and think of the extra nutrients you’re sneaking in between meal-times….

Vitamin Z – eat better, sleep better

15 April 2016

“You look tired, you should get more sleep”. Well thank you concerned friend/ family/ stranger at till in supermarket. I am well sold on the extensive health benefits of a good nights rest: improved mood, immunity, memory, longevity, reduced inflammation, reduced weight gain. However there are two main barriers: my children & my life. Sometimes…

Rest day nutrition – avocados, yoga & wine

11 February 2016

As with many athletes I like structure, and a clear set of rules to work to.  I believe in evidence-based rules. Carbs: 6-10g/kg body weight/day. Protein: 1.2-1.7 g/kg body weight/d. Fat: 20-30% total energy. Recovery: 1-1.5 g carbohydrate / kg body weight/30min. Hydration: 500ml/ 0.5kg body weight lost during exercise.  Eat 2 hours pre exercise….

Caffeine fuelled sport. Fancy a cuppa? Wake up and smell the coffee.

28 January 2016

A green light for the hot, smooth, dark, freshly roasted coffee you’ve been craving all morning? Fancy a cuppa? Go ahead, the nerd is sanctioning caffeine. During the month of January there’s a lot of nutrition noise around cutting foods out, making changes to your diet. Well how about just focussing on what you’re doing…

5 tips to Dodge a Hangover

21 December 2015

As I dusted the heels off last Friday for a rare night out on the town with some equally excited local ‘mum friends’ I felt smug in my hangover prevention preparations: I was well hydrated; I’d eaten a wholesome balanced dinner with the family before heading out; I snacked with my drinks when out; and the old…

Mindful eating – stop, think, relax, eat

09 December 2015

It’s a crazy busy time of year. Christmas shopping is in full swing and the social calendar is fully booked. There are now meagre seasonal pickings from the garden, and sub-zero temperatures mean a few kilos weight gain can be easily disguised under a stylish Winter knit. Discussing healthy fresh meal ideas is less of…

Top 5 Immune Boosting Diet Habits

08 November 2015

As a nutrition expert I feel pressure to look the picture of health at all times. Glossy hair, long nails, glowing skin and a skip in my step are all evidence of the nutritious healthy lifestyle I live. However sometimes the odds are stacked against me and over-training, stress, a change in seasons and lack…

Protein powders – are they safe? are they necessary?

13 October 2015

The biggest guys at the gym all take protein powder, celebrity athletes endorse it, and just look at the photos on the tubs, these powders get you ripped! Or do they? Are protein supplements just burning a hole in your wallet? Are they replacing fibre containing meals and leaving you constipated? Or worse still are…

Beef Jerky – are you man enough?

06 October 2015

A request for ‘man snacks’ came recently from one of the alpha males in my extended family. I  laughed initially at the thought of snacks being gender aligned, until I took myself and my husband as an example: Snacks for me: – Fresh fruit, dates, dried apricots, dark chocolate, home made oat cookies, bliss balls….

The French Paradox – a bikini body on cheese, fois gras & red wine

29 September 2015

I spent the weekend just gone slightly in awe of delicately framed French women savouring traditional rich French cuisine. The French Paradox that struck me here was not so much the lack of heart disease in a country consuming foods so loaded with saturated fats, but the lack of pot belly. How do these ladies…

Tone up with your 20 grams of recovery protein, and make it fishy!

21 September 2015

As a nerd I like to have a set of rules to work to. I like numbers, and I like it when they’re based on research. It also helps when that number answers a question I get asked a lot: how much protein should I eat? For ideal recovery post workout that’ll be 20 grams….

Must eat nuts and beans. The vegetarian athletes mantra.

09 September 2015

I’ve become a weekday quasi-vegetarian. It happened by accident really. My husband has been working away from home Monday to Friday and so I’ve been cooking what I crave and what the children like – which is mainly cheese, beans, fish and vegetables. Sometimes chicken – but since our move we no longer have a decent…
