Maria Cross is a diet and nutrition writer who started out as a nutrition consultant in 1994.
For seventeen years Maria saw clients with all manner of symptoms that they had learned to live with, despite the drugs, tests and specialists. The results she saw in those clients who made changes to their diets were staggering, and the thrill of hearing of health transformations never diminished.
In 2003 Maria gained an MSc in Public Health Food and Nutrition and was a lecturer and tutor at the University of Westminster for six years. However her favourite way of communicating the need for good nutrition is through writing, and she published her first, co-authored book, Nutrition in Institutions, in 2009. Since then she has gone on to publish I Wish I Hadn't Eaten That, based on her experiences as a nutrition consultant and now Food, and How to Make a Healthy Meal of it, a celebration of real food and how it can help keep you disease-free.
In 2006 Maria had the good fortune to wed a man who is an exceptionally good cook and bon vivant, thus guaranteeing the perfect marriage of good food and good health.
She is currently working on her next book, which is about how to achieve permanent, effortless weight loss.
