About Zoe Fisher


Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is about a personalised eating and lifestyle plan to help you manage your health and feel better. It’s part of your self-help plan so you can take control of your health and wellbeing.

Nutritional Therapy may be able to help with:

  • Digestive Problems

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Low Mood

  • Low Energy

  • Menstrual Problems

  • Weight Loss

  • Weight Loss Maintenance 

Your Appointment

Before the consultation I will ask you to complete a health and nutrition questionnaire which includes a food diary so I can prepare for our appointment. During the first consultation we will work together to create a personalised program and actions.

Further appointments are then based on individual need. It can be really useful for those with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) trialling a low FODMAP diet to have 1-2 follow up consultations as re-introduction of FODMAP foods is an important part of the process. Low FODMAP is not a diet for life but a dietary intervention. Lots of really healthy foods can be reduced temporarily and it’s important to review. Also there are many factors involved in IBS and although getting an eating plan is a key part it is not the only change that could improve your symptoms.   

For weight loss and maintenance follow-up and accountability is key and after an initial consultation to provide a personalised assessment and plan I offer a package of consultations.  But you may also use outside resources or groups and check-in less often.

If I recommend supplements it is important to review these and your symptoms usually after 3 months (with a brief email follow-up after 1 month).  I don’t believe anyone should stay on supplements on-going without review. Your symptoms, medication and health priorities may change and it could save you money.

I can help you take control and feel better!

I have a particular interest in digestive symptoms and irritable bowel syndrome (and I help a lot of people with the low FODMAP diet) and weight loss and maintenance.

 

Working Together

This is no 'one-size fits all' approach. Your ideal health plan is personal. It depends upon your eating habits & preferences, lifestyle and your health priority. We'll discuss it and perhaps try some different approaches, make tweaks and come up with a way of eating and living for life.

Before the consultation I will ask you to complete a health and nutrition questionnaire which includes a food diary so I can prepare for our appointment. During the first consultation we will work together to create a personalised program and actions.

My clients say I'm non-judgemental, that I don't tell them what to do, and making small changes wasn't as hard as they expected. They wish they'd done it earlier.

Digestive Health and IBS

I help a lot of people with IBS to feel better and take back control of their symptoms. Finding out and managing food triggers are an important part of a self-help plan for IBS. It’s about focusing on what you can eat and how to change your food preparation, cooking and shopping habits. I can help with food ideas, cook books and on-line resources to help you. I can also recommend useful natural supplements that may help with your symptoms, or advise you about any you are currently taking. If you think you have IBS it is important you get a diagnosis from a doctor so you can rule out other conditions.

I recommend a low fermentable sugars plan (or low FODMAP diet for IBS which helps reduce symptoms in 3 out of 4 people). This is a scientifically proven nutritional intervention for IBS. The term ‘fermentable carbohydrate’ often explains why many people point the finger at wheat and milk products as both are fermentable carbohydrates that we tend to eat daily in significant quantities. If you are just using the internet to understand the low FODMAP diet it can be confusing and appear restrictive. However with a personalised approach you should start to see an improvement within a couple of weeks if foods are affecting your symptoms.

Weight Loss and Maintenance

Did you know losing a bit of weight makes a difference to your health and weight regain is not inevitable. Losing (and keeping off) 5% of bodyweight (so say half a stone if you weigh 11 stone) can improve the fats and sugars in your blood, as well blood pressure and reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

Many different diets work for weight loss but we find the way of eating that suits you and your body. We work to set the right goal in weight but also in measurements as where you carry your weight matters to health. Tummy fat is dangerous fat that raises the risk of disease. I work as your accountability buddy in the way that suits you, through regular meetings, emails or even a photo food diary, to keep you on track. I don’t provide meal plans as I have found people rarely follow them but I do provide meal & product ideas, recipes, and book suggestions where it helps you.
