Welcome to Nutrition in Mind

Together we will change your mind, so you eat yourself fitter.

My name is Angelika and I help those who have been struggling with getting to their healthy weight for a long time and tried everything; Weight Watchers, Atkins, Cabbage soup diet, etc, those are the people I like to help the most as I specialise in a weight loss management. I have a masters in nutrition and I am a qualified NLP coach, as well as being a fully registered BANT Nutritional Therapist and CNHC accredited member.

Medical research has established that the majority of the health issues will get significantly better or even disappear if a person loses even 5% of their body weight (for 13 stone person 5% loss is around ~9 pounds!). However, research from Johns Hopkins University and other similarly conducted studies have found that the average adult gains 1 to 2 pounds per year from their thirties onwards. This on average equates to a stone gain in fat per decade. We can change this.

My goal is to empower and motivate clients to make intelligent food choices that become a natural habit of life. This is delivered through personalised, sustainable and flexible dietary support, lifestyle changes, empowering coaching, cooking sessions (where required), supplement recommendations and functional testing where appropriate.

Weight loss management

Weight loss is a simple equation:

Calories in (food and drink) vs. calories out (every day activity)! The problem is, due to our modern lifestyle, people often eat more than they need to and exercise less!  But just because some others do this, this is no excuse for you.

I do not believe in diets per se, however some people need to cut their food intake initially for a certain period of time, in order to lose significant amount of weight. Hence different methods of food reduction (diet) can be offered depending on individual personal needs:

  • ‘The 5:2 fasting Diet’
  • ‘8 Hour Diet’
  • ‘Alternate Fasting’  (4:3 days)
  • ‘1500 Calorie’ Diet
  • ‘ Lemon Detox Program’ –  3 or 7 days

How nutritional therapy can help?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Nutrition practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Digestion

I have training on Digestive issues IBS in particular and also conducted extensive research on this topic and consider myself experienced in the field. I have attended many conferences on digestion as well as CPD events. Member of The IBS Network Charity. I use Lorisian Food Intolerance testing with great success in the practice.

Cardiovascular health

I work with lot of people with Metabolic Syndrome (pre-diabetic state), to help them with weight control, cholesterol and glucose levels. I recommend general exercise routine since any form of physical activity (even simple walk around local park) can significantly improve health through a period of time. The appropriate supplement suggestions are made if required.

Fertility

From personal experience and successful struggle with fertility issues in the past, I have conducted comprehensive research via self-directed learning and consider myself to be an expert on this subject. Other therapies, such as; acupuncture, homeopathy, reflexology, are appropriate when dealing with infertility and referrals are often suggested. In many cases, losing excess body weight seems to be an important factor when fertility is concern.

Sports nutrition

I work predominantly with clients who are distance runners, for example; triathlon, iron man or marathon runners, since I have considerable expertise in the subject by running London Marathon’s in the past myself. I give general dietary and supplement advice (where appropriate) and exercise regimen suggestions.
