Hi, I'm Lauren
A qualified nutritionist and mindset coach.
I’m on a mission to liberate women from the constraints of restrictive eating and yo-yo diets, so they’re free to enjoy food (and their life) again.
You’ve tried so hard to eat healthily. To manage your weight and wellness by carefully controlling your diet.
And yet here you are, feeling rubbish inside and out, trapped in a never ending cycle of planning, counting, weighing (yourself and the portions), beating yourself up every time you eat something delicious yet forbidden, promising yourself you’ll start over on Monday.
Can you remember a time when planning, obsessing and worrying about food didn’t dominate your day? Your mind? Your life?

3 Things I Need You To Know Right Now
Don’t just read them. Know them. Read them and let them settle in your mind, and you’ll have begun your new relationship with food.
1 - Your Self-Worth is not measured by a number.
The number on your scales, the number of calories you eat, the number of naughty foods you eat, your average daily number of fruit and veg, the number of glasses of water you consume…..no number reflects the immeasurable value of you as a person. Stop counting.
2 - Your Good Work Cannot Be Undone
You’re not a row of knitting. Your ‘good work’ cannot be undone. Biscuits. Wine. Chocolate. They do not undo the positive benefits of the delicious nutritious food you enjoyed up to that point. You never need to start over. You start from where you are right now. No deficit to make up. No food sins to atone for.
3 - There Are No Forbidden Foods
Deprivation leads to craving, which leads to bingeing, which leads to guilt and shame, which leads to impossible-to-keep promises of doing better next time, which leads to deprivation….. The first step to breaking the cycle is to accept that no food is forbidden, and it’s safe for you to listen to what your body wants.
