“I met Jo around four years ago when my weight at that time had gone through the roof and when I reached 90 kgs, I was desperate and morbidly obese. I looked into different nutritionists, but Jo came across absolutely like the perfect guide. She wasn’t only a dietitian, she also taught me to eat meaningfully and to treat food as fuel and not as comfort only. In around a year, thankfully to her support, guidance, tips and amazing knowledge I dropped 25kg and from a size 18 I went down to a size 10.
I could never recommend enough her method and her as a person. Jo supported me in good and bad moments. It was a tough journey, I had many sets back and many times I slipped into bad habits again, but she has always been at the other end ready to make me think and analyse where the problem was and how we could, together, overcome it.”Daniela
“I was really pleased with the results of my diet, and Jo´s approach to nutrition was so accurate and easy to adapt to my lifestyle. She has been by far one of the best nutritionists I have met and I am so happy I had the chance to change my diet habits for the rest of my life.
I found Jo´s sessions very helpful, there was always something new to learn. I would suggest everyone interested in changing diet habits for life, to approach Jo and work together with her in achieving goals.”Thomas Fernandez
“At the point when I first went to see Jo I was pretty desperate. I’d been binging on huge amounts of chocolate, cake, biscuits… anything bad! And not eating much else. I was seriously low generally, I felt awful about the way I looked and I was also desperately hungry – starving myself to gain back the calories I’d consumed bingeing meant I was ravenous (not that I realised at the time) and would eventually give in and binge again. This is basically the vicious cycle I’ve been in for years with food: and getting bigger and bigger as a result. Jo was, and has been, extremely patient and kind. And she listened. She recognised the emotional side of my eating and has helped me to gradually change my relationship with food – but, while I’d known this already – I don’t think I’d ever realised how much was actually very practically resolved – by eating proper food regularly.
This hasn’t happened overnight – but we have found that every time I’ve started bingeing again I’ve needed to return to the completely obvious idea of this basic eating plan – 3 meals a day. Carbs, proteins and veg. Every time I have forgotten, Jo’s reminded me how to get back on track. It now seems so simple – but it’s taken a while to change my eating patterns as I’ve had to retrain myself after years of terrible eating habits that had gradually formed from following unsustainable diets. I’ve needed Jo’s input – and it’s been amazing how it now feels like I am eating the way I will always eat: as in it feels sustainable (not like when you are thinking ahead to the end of a diet and being able to eat normally again!!) and I’ve gradually lost around 3 stone doing it. I’ve got more to go. I do other things like exercise too. But because I eat normally and healthily now I have enough energy to exercise lots. I love eating now in a way I could never do before – I felt guilty whatever I ate – whereas now it seems normal to eat a full, proper meal and to have treats now and then and be able to control it. Still not completely there yet – but after years of trying and failing I feel really happy in myself and it’s a huge relief – in massive part thanks to Jo’s way of doing things.”Beth
“Before I met Jo, my eating habits were a result of information that I had cobbled together from lifestyle magazines, hearsay, and my own opinion: no wonder I was left with something that didn’t work and I wasn’t happy with. Following Jo’s plan was a revelation: I thought healthy eating had to be difficult and tortuous, but Jo showed me that keeping a varied, balanced, and healthy diet can be simple as well as enjoyable! The principles of the plan are clear and easy to put in practice, even at the busiest of times – I think that’s what makes this a life-long sustainable plan. Furthermore, there is scientific, medical evidence behind the plan, which I think matters when committing to it. Jo’s plan has transformed my relationship with food to a positive, healthy and happy one and I am sure it will do the same for others!”Paul Harvey
