Profile for Laura Clark, BDA Registered Dietitian

Do you feel overwhelmed with information, but lacking in clarity as to what is right for you and your body? My ethos is to be realistic and down to earth and cut through the confusion so you gain insight, with advice that’s tailored to your day to day life. No gimmicks, no fad diets, just an holistic approach, grounded in science, to empower you. How does that sound?

I have nearly 20 years of experience as a registered dietitian, in the NHS, healthcare services abroad, and in the commercial sector which have given me the opportunity to work with thousands of individuals, allowing a unique depth of understanding into the challenges many people face when exploring changes to their diet and lifestyle.

My post-graduate training in many aspects, including Behaviour Change Therapy and Intuitive Eating, facilitate us to consider all that influences your food choices, to enable you to develop a much happier, healthier relationship with food.

Free discovery calls are available to book. I typically see women with PCOS, chronic dieting syndrome, the menopause, gut health issues, sports nutrition or those wishing to explore the nutritional needs of their family. 

I am passionate about cutting through the often confusing arena of nutrition, and frequently contribute to main stream press and media. I have appeared on the BBC and ITV a number of times and many radio stations.

I also deliver workplace health and well-being seminars and also support brands with PR campaigns and their nutrition content/ messaging.

Lots more information on my website so please take or look or drop me an email.

Is Noom really worth it? A dietitian’s perspective

14 January 2022

I became a #Noomer on the 28th December as I embarked on a 14 day free trial. I was intrigued; I had seen adverts everywhere with one clear message: Stop Dieting. Get Life-long results. It lures me in – ‘There’s a reason diets don’t work… find out how long it will take to reach your…

The idea that we can throw caution to the wind, indulge but also avoid Christmas weight gain, emerging into January polishing our halo’s is really appealing.

What determines body weight and weight loss (and is the NHS weight loss app the answer?)

23 September 2021

As we strive to determine where our body weight should sit, how we achieve and maintain weight loss and what control we ultimately have over that, let’s start by being clear about what we know. The role of genetics in weight Various studies have concluded that our weight is 70% determined by our genetics. And…

Are you a seasonal dieter and how to break free from the cycle?

25 August 2021

I always associate September with WHSmith’s and a new pencil case. I used to love these trips with my Mum. Now I secretly engineer a visit with my children to salivate over the stationery, which I absolutely need obviously. New beginnings and all the freshness they bring, feel great. Just like the ebb and flow…

Behind the scenes of ‘that Slimming World Feeling’

14 July 2021

Over my career I have seen countless women who have been back to Slimming World countless times. This is not a coincidence that it fails so many, and sadly yo-yoing in weight has been shown to put our health at risk, in itself so it is not ok that slimming clubs will welcome back repeated…

Of course, you can avoid the temptations. You just need more willpower! Setting your environment up to support healthy habits is one thing; helping your conscious brain make good decisions that facilitate health, I’m all for it. But there are a few key things that get missed off that story of willpower being the key…

How to create boundaries that enable you to truly nourish yourself

17 June 2021

I recently had a chat with Elsie Owen, the People Pleasing Therapist , about worth and our tendency to persist with people pleasing behaviour, which puts us at the bottom of the pile. How can we create boundaries that enable you to truly nourish yourself? I feel this is particularly relevant for the work I…

Should I do the keto diet?

26 May 2021

Firstly, shall we define what we mean by keto diet? Keto refers to the production of ketone bodies which are the by product of fat metabolism. This process is known as ketosis. To ensure fat is the preferred fuel source being burned, carb intakes have to stay very low – under 50g per day equating…

Understanding fuel needs for exercise

28 April 2021

Having a healthy, happy relationship with both exercise and food is the ideal. Unfortunately, diet culture teaches us to put them both in the same basket and ‘diet and exercise’ plans are everywhere. We may cut calories and up our exercise to force weight loss, but this can be counterproductive if we don’t understand what…

How do you know if you are addicted to food?

14 April 2021

It is common for many of the people I meet and work with to feel they are addicted to food. But how do you know if you addicted to food? And is this even accurate? Often this label we give ourselves is all tied up in a history of chronic dieting which has led to…

What exactly is Intermittent Fasting?

24 March 2021

Fasting is not a new concept and has been around for thousands of years but what exactly is Intermittent Fasting? Fasting involves alternating food absence with periods of normal food consumption.

It’s the world’s most popular stimulant and a friend to many of us but what’s the truth about caffeine and how it benefits us? Can you imagine mornings without it? How much caffeine should we have?

What you need to know about SALT

08 February 2021

Headlines about salt never seem as prevalent as those bashing either fat or sugar, and yet dietary wise, salt is the biggest threat to our health. If salt intake fell by a third, it would prevent 8000 premature deaths in the UK and could save the NHS over £500 million annually. What is it about…

What to take into consideration in February if you did Veganuary

02 February 2021

Veganuary recruited a record number of signups this year (around 500,000). It continues to trend but against popular belief, not all vegan diets are healthy. Let’s pull back that ‘health halo’ and have a poke around, with a particular focus on the vegan processed food market.  This product research and evidence has been compiled by…

Are assumptions holding you back?

21 October 2020

Do you live in assumption-ville? Last time I chatted about how the brain likes to automate things. Not because it likes to let us down, but because it has to automate stuff to allow our deliberate system to focus on what really matters that day. Can you imagine if we deliberated over what to have…

Making habits stick and why diets don’t help

09 October 2020

Our brain is the most metabolically active tissue in our body. To state the obvious, it’s quite clever but even the brain has limitations and short-cuts it puts in place to help us navigate information overload.

Getting on the Scales – Weighing up the Reasons

21 September 2020

The scales supposedly track our progress towards a goal or serve as a reminder to keep things in check. And now, with the development of wearable devices, we have countless ways in which we can track ourselves – 24 hours a day. On the surface, all this tracking is supposed to act as a motivator…

In the past, I’ve delivered weight management services which had weight loss at the heart.
