Welcome to the Laura Clark Nutrition blog

February 10th, 2017|

Welcome to the Laura Clark Nutrition blog – helping each and every one of you access nutrition sense and eat it real.

The nutrition and health world has exploded onto the internet – we are overwhelmed with facts, fads, false claims and frustration. Everyone – including those not even qualified - seems obsessed with labelling food but we don’t understand the labels that already exist.

Food is a basic human need and yet so many people struggle to get it right and our environment certainly isn’t helping us. The media loves to define things and make it black and white with what will kill you one day being the secret to a long life the next.

What I feel is missing is honest, practical, impartial advice that translates the science and facts into simple language that’s easy to understand and apply in everyday life situations.

The blog is based on the ‘eat it real’ concept – real life, evidence based, easy to understand nutrition information. My commitment to you is that I have no agenda and I’m not trying to sell you a product. I do practice evidence based nutrition and I know lots of clever research people! I will tell you it straight. I will help you understand what your body needs and how you can improve your relationship with food.

I will help you to #eatitreal.

What to take into consideration in February if you did Veganuary

February 2nd, 2021|

Veganuary recruited a record number of signups this year (around 500,000). It continues to trend but against popular belief, not all vegan diets are healthy. Let's pull back that 'health halo' and have a poke around, with a particular focus on the vegan processed [...]

Are assumptions holding you back?

October 21st, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

Do you live in assumption-ville? Last time I chatted about how the brain likes to automate things. Not because it likes to let us down, but because it has to automate stuff to allow our deliberate system to focus on what really matters that [...]
