Ridgeway Nutrition provides diet and nutrition advice in the West Berkshire area and is run by local mum Flick Lucas. Flick told us a bit more about herself, her business and how she can help you.

“I used to work in London in Banking but after the birth of my two children, I decided not to return to the demanding job as I would never see my children. I have always been passionate about food, cooking and nutrition so I retrained as a Diet and Nutrition Advisor. I completed my diplomas at the end of 2017 and in January 2018 I set up by myself.

I know all too well about being too busy to find the time to cook, let alone to prepare healthy meals. Early commutes to London, returning late at night, I realised that my health was suffering. It can be hard to know where to start and which nutrition plan is best for you. I am West Ilsley-based and have set up a new, specialist nutrition consultancy called Ridgeway Nutrition for anyone wanting to get help and guidance on being healthier.

You may be forgiven for thinking, ‘why should I listen to you?’ I can just Google the information. The Roman philosopher Lucretius said in 50 BC “One man’s food is another man’s poison.” There is no denying that there is an abundance of information on nutrition and healthy eating on the internet, along with various diets that people claim to work. They may work, but will the effects last? Is that diet right for you based on what you want to achieve, your current state of health, your starting point (current weight, age) etc? Everyone is different and nutrition is deeply personal. I can help guide and advise you through that maze, cutting the wheat from the chaff and showing you how to do it and how easy it can be based on your personal requirements.

As a Diet and Nutrition Adviser, I take into account the unique dietary needs of everyone, help identify any deficiencies, improve health symptoms and optimise your own health. I can provide a range of services for anyone wanting to overhaul their eating habits, healthy eating doesn’t have to mean denying yourself and I can show you how to reach your goals in a balanced, healthy way. Whether this is losing weight, adjusting to a new diet due to medical reasons or allergies, wanting help with baby weaning or family meals or just being more mindful about the food you eat. Eating healthily doesn’t mean your food has to be bland!

My specialist plans include a nutrition ‘reboot’ programme, dietary guidance for toddlers and young children, three-month weight management programmes and nutrition tune-up packages and cookery classes. I can help new mothers and mothers-to-be who can be ‘bombarded’ with conflicting information about what to eat.

My cookery classes are for up to 6 people at a time. The group can be made up of friends or be a group of strangers. I can either come to you and conduct the classes in your own home (think of it as a dinner party with a twist!) or you can come to my home where I conduct the classes. For other sessions I am based at Total Health West Berkshire where I conduct clinics. Again, I can also come to you if you prefer.
