Should you be pushing past imposter syndrome when you may actually be one?

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Sep 16, 12:01 PM in . No comments.

Last week, I noticed one of those free “challenges” pop up on my Facebook and decided to have a look and see if I could learn anything to help my visibility on social media. You know the type? Email challenges sent to you every week for a couple or weeks and an invitation to join a group with likeminded people all having a go at the challenge?

Avoid these “brain drainers” during exam time

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Mar 21, 11:55 AM in and . No comments.

Revision week can be a stressful time and it may be tempting, if you are this way inclined, to treat your teen to sugary snacks, rewards of takeaways and “at the desk” quick meals.

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 22, 10:23 AM in and . No comments.

Every now and then, I see some common themes coming from my clinics.

Be prepared - a few low FODMAP breakfasts

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 17, 07:57 AM in and . No comments.

In my clinics, I see a lot of people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Each person has a different treatment and needs a different dietary approach but many trial the low FODMAP diet, which is the second phase of the NICE guidelines recommendations for the management of IBS.
