Individual Food Advice

My work with individuals

Why come and see me?

I often find that the people that come to see me for food advice are a little stuck! They have been eating in a certain way for years and wish to change.

They are either not happy with how they are eating at the moment or they have been to their GP who has told them there is an area of their health that needs improving.

Through the one on one sessions, I can find out how food can help to alleviate these symptoms or improve a condition. Nutrition advice can help with a range of different health conditions but I tend to specialise in the following:

  • Cardio-vascular disease, high cholesterol/blood fats, Blood Pressure Irregularities

I run a 6 week cholesterol reduction programme that helps you reduce your cholesterol naturally through the foods your eat. People often get their cholesterol tested either after 6 weeks or 3 months and are amazed with the results.

  • Blood sugar disturbances and weight disturbances

  • Low energy and sugar cravings

Most people I see have difficulty regulating their blood sugar levels and feel tired all the time or are constantly craving sweet things. I work to decrease craving and fatigue with the added benefit of loosing weight.

  • Indigestion and Digestive and bowel disorders especially IBS

I generally see people who are experiencing some level of digestive complaints, whether it be acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea or bloating.

” I drastically reduced the amount of antacids I take, as a result of following healthier options in my diet, as recommended by Lucy.” Eddie, Cork

  • Inflammatory disorders such as arthritis and osteoporosis, asthma, eczema, dermatitis

I introduce people to an anti-inflammatory diet, high in whole grains, fibre rich food and naturally anti-inflammatory ingredients helping them to alleviate symptoms of inflammation within the body.

  • Meal and menu design

I often find that people are simply looking for a meal plan to suit their individual health needs. Many clients have recently been diagnosed with coeliacs disease, or have found out they are intolerant to wheat, dairy or sugar and are struggling to eat and balanced healthy diet. I can design a range of recipes and meal to suit every health need.

My food and health expert sessions can teach you how to take the control of your eating habits and educates you about how nutrition, food and health are intertwined.
