I am well placed to do so, having worked in the field since 1994, when I graduated as a nutritional therapist from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition. Since then I have accumulated a great deal of knowledge and experience, through my writing, consultations and work for eight years as a lecturer and tutor on the first BSc course in nutritional therapy in the UK, at the University of Westminster. Most of all, I have developed my research skills so that I am able to separate the wheat from the chaff, the silly from the science. My blogs, and my books, are strictly evidence-based, but written with the layperson in mind. Studying for an MSc brought home to me the need for robust, accurate information, so often missing from the advice dispensed by both the complementary and orthodox corners of nutrition education.
Everyone eats, and everyone has the right to know what it is they are eating, and what it can do for them, and to them. This is the information I present to you so that you can then make your choices.
