Will - Winner of "The Biggest Loser" 2011
Before meeting Laura, I was making bad choices with food. I was a serial dieter - and I was really bad at it. Laura really changed my outlook on every aspect of nutrition from portion sizes and eating regularly right the way through to eating the right foods to fuel my body without sacrificing taste and enjoyment.
Without Laura's unbelievable help and friendly approach, there's no way I'd have lost as much as I have. She has given me the tools and knowledge I need to maintain my weight loss and I can now look forward to a healthy, nutritious relationship with food for the rest of my life. I can never thank her enough!

I went to see Laura for a few sessions after struggling with my weight for years. I had previously lost a lot of weight with Weight Watchers and thought I knew all I needed to know about dieting.
Laura helped me to get over my negative feelings about food and my obsessive dieting which was just turning into a vicious cycle. I got a lot of good advice and practical tips for moving forward. Since seeing Laura I have lost 10kg but most importantly am happy and no longer constantly thinking and worrying about food.

During a wide ranging discussion about issues of weight control Laura put forward a simple eating plan based on proven scientific research that has completely revolutionised my life.
After years of unsuccessful crash dieting I have finally found a regime that really works and I am confident that with support from Laura I will achieve a significant weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

I was fortunate to find Laura. The first consultation was very inspiring as we spoke about the emotional part of my weight gain as well as the amount of the different food groups I should be eating to lose weight. It was not just another diet I would be trying; she helped me to come to terms with the fact that I wanted a lifestyle change.
Laura is a great support and just what I need to keep me on track. Before it was too easy to just over eat as I could bluff myself into believing it made no difference. Now I know I will be accountable when I have a weigh in. We all have our ups and downs during weight loss and when I slip a bit Laura is always able to motivate me into getting back on track. She has great tips and advice that help when I feel a bit stuck for ideas. The greatest realisation that Laura helped me to see was that I am not on a diet but am learning good eating habits. I still have a bit more to lose before I reach my goal but I am excited by this prospect and I look forward to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Laura. You did a great talk and we all learned a lot from it.

Thanks for all your help to prepare me for the triathlon. I beat my time from last year and the only thing I did different was sort my nutrition- thank god for those jam sandwiches!

I saw Laura after having struggled with my weight for a number of years and having sustained a knee injury and not being able to do significant amounts of exercise to reduce my weight.
I came away from the first session surprised (in a good way) as she didn't ban any foods or provide me with the "only allowed to eat" list. We also discussed my emotional attachment to food and how to avoid overeating when I'm stressed.
My attitude towards food has significantly changed, I'm able to make healthier food choices and my natural response to resort to food when I'm stressed is also more under control. I've lost 15 pounds so far and I'm on track to lose more!
