Fresh Start is a 3-week kickstart programme that you can do online from the comfort of your own home.

 If you’re feeling stuck in a rut with your diet, or if you’re finding it hard to make healthy choices, your cravings are out of control, or if you suspect certain foods may be a problem for you, then this plan can help.

 It is fully supported by me, and my colleague, Amanda Ryder, a fellow BANT Registered Nutritional Therapist. Two guides for the price of one!

 We completed our initial Nutritional Therapy training together some moons ago at the Institute For Optimum Nutrition in London. A few years, and a few hundred clients later, we realised one very important thing. The majority of our clients who have needed to make long term change to their eating habits, have found some kind of kick-start plan the key to getting them on track, and to making long term sustainable changes.


 The Fresh Start  Programme was born!  A wonderfully simple plan that anyone, regardless of culinary ability, and available time, can follow.

This is a simple, flexible, yet structured plan to help you make lasting changes to make improvements to your health and energy, reach your goal weight, and gain more self-control over your food choices. 

 This is not a diet. Diets DO NOT work, but changing your diet does. How many of us have done a restricted diet, only to revert back to our old-eating habits and then re-gain the weight we lost, plus more, over time?

So What Is The Plan About?

There are 2 weeks of simple recipes and a meal plan. There is also a set of simple rules to help you get the most out of the programme. In week 3, we start to reintroduce foods we have avoided, in a controlled way, to gain insight into whether we have underlying sensitivities.

There is a also a comprehensive food list in case you can’t follow the plan 100% and need to go off-piste, for example, when on holiday or eating out.

You will be invited to a private Facebook group where you will have support from us during the plan to help answer any questions, give advice and tips on how to make the changes, and how to keep on going. This is one of the most popular elements of the programme. Our participants also benefit from the support of other participants, as everyone does the plan together from start to finish.

The plan will help you identify any hidden food sensitivities that could be making you feel below par.

The plan excludes some of the most common allergenic foods. However it is still nutritionally balanced. By removing common allergenic foods for a short trial period, and then re-introducing them in a controlled one-by-one basis, this can help identify food sensitivities.

It will help you identify any old eating patterns that don’t serve you any longer and give you simple go-to recipes that you can use and re-use.

What Is It Not About?

  • It’s not about counting calories
  • It’s not a crash diet
  • It’s not complicated – These are recipes and meals we use every day. We’re busy, we want to be healthy, and these are our tried and tested meals. They are totally delicious and nutritious!
  • It’s not restricted – There’s a long list of health-giving foods that are included
  • It’s not boring

What Will You Get Out Of The Plan?

  • Participants report improved energy
  • Weight loss (if you need to lose weight)
  • Feel more in control of your food cravings
  • Identify any food sensitivities that could be making you feel below par
  • A host of healthy go-to recipes that you can make part of your every day routine
  • A fresh start to a future of improved health

Here's What Previous Participants Have Said...


This healthy plan was really easy follow. The support by the facilitators, both with the information and friendly personal contact, was exemplary! Highly recommended.


The Fresh Start plan is a brilliantly simple way to create some healthy eating habits and to kick unhealthy ones. I lost 5lbs on the plan and feel equipped by it to carry on and lose those final 10lbs that have been hanging around for years. The recipes are simple to make and delicious and the online support is invaluable.


I have really enjoyed following the Fresh Start diet. It has helped in terms of weight loss (5lb in 2 weeks) and 2 inches off my waist size. More importantly, it has energised me, before I was getting so tired in the afternoon. I am now feeling stronger, clearer, and more healthy generally. The programme has given me massive insight into the amount of unnecessary snacking I was doing and I also feel so much better now after eliminating sugar and alcohol. I fully intend to make this a new way of living and eating in the future. Thank you Amanda and Alexis, your online support was greatly appreciated too


Getting through the first week with the 5 hour gaps was a challenge, but with the support of Amanda, Alexis and others, I did it and over time it got much easier. I lost 6 lbs over the two weeks – which was just great - and discovered a number of tasty and easy recipes, which are my go to recipes now.


Having never followed a diet plan before, I was a bit unsure about sticking to one - especially one which eliminates so many foods.  I needn’t have worried, the recipes and daily meal plans were all very easy to follow and the food was delicious! The only thing I had a problem eliminating completely was alcohol, although I managed it for two whole weeks I missed it.  I have maintained gluten and dairy free since the fresh start plan as I didn’t really miss these and thought I’d get to really see if they contribute to an ongoing skin sensitivity problem. It’s been very useful to learn so much about how the body processes certain foods - I’ve found the whole experience quite enlightening and am definitely eating more healthily.  Thanks very much 🙂
