I'm a nutrition enthusiast and I've done a lot of research over many years to find out what the best diet is for optimal health. Since it takes such a huge amount of effort to learn about this topic, I was wondering if there are people out there who are desperate to get advice on this kind of thing, including:

  • practical advice on what to eat
  • recipe links and nutrition information
  • current diet review

I don't have a specific qualification in nutrition - just a lot of fascination for the topic and a passion for solving complex problems. I can support the following:

  • weight loss
  • weight gain
  • supporting optimal fitness / getting more energy
  • preventing chronic illnesses

Since I'm not a medical professional, I would always advise anyone with pre-existing medical conditions to also work with their doctor if they're going to undertake any significant dietary changes. That said, the diet I favour has been shown to reverse chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (citations available if you're interested) - which can mean that medications need to be monitored by a doctor and reduced or stopped as you progress.

I view this more as a collaboration than a professional service. I would be particularly interested in working with people who are very overweight, because I'd like to learn more about those people's experiences and attempt a diet-focussed approach (as I can understand that being urged to 'exercise' when all your joints hurt and you have no energy is not exactly helpful).

This isn't a quick fix diet thing or a fad diet. People who want to do this would have to be ready to change their lives permanently - because that's the only way that the results will stick. I'm not out to make heaps of money (or any money) out of this, as diet systems like weight watchers are, so it's best for me (and you) if you don't need to come back! :)

Is anyone interested in this kind of service? Have you any ideas about how I could make it happen, if so? What would you need from this kind of support? Do you have any skills you can offer?

It seems like it would be great to have a network of people with different skills like cooking, fitness and nutrition to support people in changing their lifestyles for the better.

I'm thinking that this should be an online thing - because a lot of people are stuck at home and this could be the perfect time to re-evaluate health and life habits.

All thoughts welcome!
