If there’s one thing my clients want information on during the summer it’s weight loss. I hear questions about green tea extract, green papaya and all manner of other products available in high street health food shops.

In truth blood balancing is the most effective approach to losing weight, as is addressing adrenal fatigue. You can find out more about adrenal fatigue on my website.

How do you achieve blood balancing? The good news is, I’ve teamed up with Nutri to create a 30-day weight loss plan that helps you attain exactly that. It describes foods to eat, foods to avoid, diet plans, recipes, supplements and even shopping lists. You will also receive a work book in which to record data pre-diet and on days ten, 20 and 30. This allows us to measure exactly where you are losing those inches.

The plan was originally designed by nutritional professionals with over 300 practitioners having undergone the weight loss challenge. The results speak for themselves

  • 100% of participants lost weight
  • The average weight loss was half a stone
  • The highest weight lost was one stone and two pounds
  • 95% of participants recorded a reduction in their medical symptoms questionnaire score, the average drop being 24 points

The Nutri Weight Loss Pack costs £250 and includes all the supplements, support material and consultation you need to see results fast.

Have a look at the recipes below to get an idea for the kind of food you can expect to enjoy on the programme.
