Nutrition for Weight Loss
With my combined expertise as a nutritionist and personal trainer, I’ve helped hundreds of clients reach their weight and shape goals over the years. Every client needs something different based on their situation and needs, and I work intuitively with you to devise a clear, easy-to-follow plan that fits into your lifestyle.
Your plan will combine nutrition and exercise to help improve your body composition, create a healthy relationship with food, and help you to make lifelong changes, breaking the cycle of yoyo dieting for good.
I delve deep to find the cause that may be contributing to your weight issues, such as hormonal imbalances and elevated stress levels. I can also look at the exciting and rapidly growing world of genetics to see what diet and exercise would best suit YOUR body.
Effective Functional Testing for Weight Loss
Sometimes you just need that little bit more and that’s where my bespoke range of tests can help. I have many tests that we can run but here are some of the more popular ones.
Personalised DNA Test
Ever wondered why you just look at a cake and gain weight, yet your friend can eat three and not gain a pound? The answer may well lie in your genes! Here at Lucy Childerley Clinic I offer state of the art DNA testing to check your individual genetic markers that may make you more susceptible to gaining weight.
This exciting form of testing is the future of medicine. Being able to prescribe a lifestyle, diet, exercise and supplement protocol based on genetic facts, rather than the one-size-fits-all approach.
Adrenal Stress Test
Cortisol hormone is vital to life but when it is raised too high for too long, it can cause weight gain, especially around your middle. The adrenal stress test is a simple saliva test taken 4 times a day which measures your cortisol and DHEA. DHEA has an anti-weight effect by decreasing fat tissue, excess insulin and food intake. It also boosts energy!
Food Intolerances Test
Another way to increase stress (and cortisol) is by eating a food your body is intolerant to. This is why so many people see a dramatic loss of weight when they eliminate the offending foods!
