Sharmain’s career started within the NHS, where she gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience within clinical nutrition and the benefits of working within a multi disciplinary team to provide the best possible care for her patients. She broadened her expertise by combining her clinical practice within her a role as Lead Nutritionist at Bath Rugby Union and Nutritionist at Harlequins during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons, notably very successful seasons for the clubs.

What’s different about us?

We connect the dots between performance nutrition, clinical nutrition and general healthy eating. It’s rare to speak to a client who has just one issue or goal, for example an athlete might want to improve performance but requires advice regarding Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). An overweight client who has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes may want to lose weight as well as improve glycaemic control. With this specialist experience we can offer the ‘Complete Nutrition Package’, so that all issues are considered, and the advice given is suggested to work synergistically in achieving the desired goals.

Nutrition science is continually updated with new research often leaving us with more questions and making considerations about the nutrition guidelines we thought we once knew (thats science).  It’s important for us to stay up to date with this research so that we can provide you with the most accurate advice and practical application. Through attending conferences and meeting with other credible health and fitness professionals, The Diet Consultant is able to collaborate on projects and share learnings to support this.  We intend to share these interesting insights through guest blogs and interviews on our website.  So, if you want to stay up to date with these as they are added, you can sign up to receive our newsletter in the footer below.

Our Beliefs

We hear so much ‘nutrition confusion’ everyday…a plethora of conflicting messages about what to eat and what not to eat, literally consume us! We feel passionate about helping to set the record straight, to clean up the clutter and demystify the diet dilemmas.

We don’t believe in unnecessary food avoidance, dietary deprivation and any other fad that lead to a short-term outcome but in the the long-term an existence of yo-yo dieting and ‘Food Fear’! The Diet Consultant strives to be an accessible resource and service where you can find trusted, credible, tailored and approachable nutrition advice.

We promise that when working with us you will receive advice that is backed by the most up to date and credible scientific research, supported by previous clinical nutrition experience, that it is tailored to your likes, your dislikes and your lifestyle and that we are on hand to support you in making gains every step of the way.
