Hi I'm Lisa, The Nutritional Realist.

While working on a professional equestrian event and teaching yard I noticed how much science, care & time went into preparing the horse's meals while we just grabbed anything hot and quick! It ignited a burning interest in my own fitness and health I moved to London and trained at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION). During this time I also qualified as a NLP practitioner.
Then in 2007 I experienced an unknown illness which left me fighting for my life in hospital. To this day I firmly believe that without my nutrition knowledge I would not have survived.
I graduated ION in 2010 with the Patrick Holford award for success in the face of adversity and a strong personal and professional understanding of illness. I was also labelled with CFS (chronic Fatigue syndrome) but continued to work for UrBod honing my therapist skills and gaining fantastic experience; for me there's nothing better than seeing my clients' symptoms reduce and their lives improve.
After a move back north (home) I formed my company The Nutritional Realist. My belief is that nutrition should be easy, it should work with and for you. Food is your fuel to be enjoyed with your life.
