After qualifying as a doctor in London and flirting with a career in surgery, I discovered my true calling was in nutrition and wellness. For more than 20 years my clinical practice has been geared to finding the true underlying causes of illness and symptoms, and giving individuals the tools they need to take control on their own health.
I have a particular interest in weight loss, and don't believe that success here is all about 'eating less and exercising more'. Actually, as I explain in Escape the Diet Trap, taking conventional approaches to weight loss doom most of us to failure.
When I'm writing or lecturing, I always strive to take an evidence-based approach, and refer liberally to published research. I like to bring in my clinical experience too (the approaches that work in the real world with real people). I do like to drop in some common sense for good measure too!
