Lydia Leighton is a qualified, registered Dietitian with over 15 years experience.  She currently lives and works in the Bristol area.  Lydia has had a varied career working within the NHS, in hospitals and in the local community, working alongside GPs and other health professionals to support adults and children both as individuals and in groups.  She specialises in using behavioural change approaches to support people to manage their weight by guiding them to make the right dietary choices, correctly tailored to their individual lifestyle, nutrition and wellbeing.  Some of the other areas she has practiced are nutritional deficiencies, pregnancy nutrition, malnutrition, impaired glucose tolerance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cholesterol lowering and heart health, and some gut disorders.

As a mum with two young children, Lydia uses her knowledge in day-to-day life to balance her family’s needs to promote a healthy lifestyle that encourages a sensible, healthy relationship with food for them to enjoy.   She is passionate about helping people to understand how the food they eat affects health and wellbeing.  Put simply, she helps you to understand how your body responds to the food you eat by making nutritional science easy to understand.

Lydia enjoys delivering presentations and workshops on a range of healthy eating and lifestyle topics to suit the requirements of a particular group or business.  In essence Lydia works creatively to provide practical advice for real people to enjoy everyday life.
