Eat For Life 6 Month Nutrition Course 2019 – Totnes Group

Early Bird price of £222 available until March 21st when the price returns to £250. There are just 5 places on this course.

Eating healthily, or the broader science of nutrition, have become an over-complicated, faddy, and for some, confusing part of everyday life that should, in essence, be easy. Food is the foundation of our physical and mental health, energy, mood and daily function, so what could (and should) be simpler than nourishing ourselves properly every day?

In truth, it IS simple, particularly when you understand some key jigsaw pieces of information about the body and brain, and how the jigsaw should be put together.

In this course, I take you through a foundational understanding of food, nutrition, health and daily diet for you or your whole family over six months, combining monthly meetings with monthly modules building a manual of information and video, and membership of a closed group for students.

Ask questions in the group between our meetings where we’ll go into the content in depth (for intricate in between queries, I’ll answer with FB lives or recorded videos), and meet me and your fellow students in there as often as you like.

So, what are the foundations of nutrition knowledge for every day living and eating? This is what you will learn:

  • The Basics
  • Ideal Diet and Myth Busting
  • A Week’s Eating, Store Cupboards, Organisation and Prep for Busy People
  • Nutrient Lists and Recipe Development
  • Servings and Portions, Meal Combining and Family Feeding
  • Shopping, Storing, Nutrient Depletion and Nutrient Status
  • Blood Sugar, Energy, and Adrenals
  • Hormones and How to Balance Them
  • The Good Gut Guide
  • Happy Weight and Fat Burning
  • Mood, Food and Keeping Your Brain Balanced


  • membership of the Functional Foodie recipe and resource hub for a year
  • a 25% discount on a 1-2-1 assessment

Optional Extra Classes for local students – practical cookery afternoons for up to 10 students in a teaching kitchen: £40 for one class, or £70 for two.

  • Simple Suppers cookery class
  • Clean Cakes cookery class

All students finishing the course will receive a certificate of achievement.

Dates listed here are for Totnes monthly meetings – these are flexible around the group as it is assembled to ensure no one misses out due to previous commitments.

Treat yourself and your loved ones to the best of health every day. It’s easier than you think! Eat better, feel better, do more….
