Nutritional Advice Centred Around You

Are you struggling with your weight, anxiety, poor sleep, mood swings, digestive issues, low mood, lack of motivation and just not feeling yourself?

Then you have come to the right place.  The years leading up to the menopause and beyond can be a challenging time for a lot of women.  Diet and lifestyle can have a significant impact before, during and after menopause, therefore it is my aim is to help you understand your hormones, give guidance on how to bring balance and vitality back into your life.

I don’t advocate restrictive or fad diets or believe that any one diet suits all, instead I prefer to work with you as an individual, identify an underlying issues that may be exacerbating your symptoms and guide you towards adding foods and healthy habits that are nourishing and supportive. Therefore, if you’d like to get on top of your health, feel more positive, energised and in control, then do get in touch.

Most women need a few appointments to help support the changes that I recommended, therefore I offer a 3 appointment package as well as individual consultations. Click here if you’d like to discuss the best option for you.

Health in the Workplace

Educating people at work to eat well and adopt healthly habits is something I’ve been doing for some years.  It’s so enjoyable to help people unravel the confusing advice out there and give them the tools that can make a real difference to how they feel on a daily basis; getting to know a workforce and creating a safe place for them to ask questions and address their health concerns.

My most popular presentations include: Menopause – How to Survive & Thrive | Eating for Energy and Resilience | Winter Wellness – A Resilient Immunity | Stress – How to Keep it At Bay | Sleep – Why It’s So Important and How to Achieve It | Eat Well, Live Better – How to Get On Top of Cravings and Have Control Over What You Eat

Metabolic Balance – 3 Month Weight Loss Programme

Metabolic Balance was the dietary programme coached by Amelia Freer that helped Sam Smith and Boy George get back into shape, this raised its profile significantly.  It’s been around since 2009 and I have been successfully coaching individuals since 2013.  I have found it to be a very effective and a healthy approach to weight loss.  I recommend it to anyone who is willing to change their diet and commit to a 3 month programme.

It’s a four phase programme, based on your individual requirements and a comprehensive blood test. Find out more here.

Amanda Ryder BSc

Nutritionist and Specialist advice for Menopause
Metabolic Balance Coach - Cambridge

Amanda is a registered Nutritional Therapist and qualified from The Institute of Optimum Nutrition, London, a world leader in the field of Nutritional Therapy. Amanda has also completed a BSc in Nutritional Therapy with the University of West London.

After over a decade spent living in the Mediterranean and observing the joy, appreciation and good health food brings to all age groups, Amanda decided to study for a formal qualification in nutrition in 2008.  Being a real foodie who enjoys her food and wine, she has been able to use her knowledge of nutrition in order to guide others to change their dietary habits and lifestyle, without compromising on delicious foods.

I inherited an interest in nutrition and health from my Grandad who was ahead of his time and loved advising me on the nutrient content of my beans on toast!  However growing up in the 80s, it was all about low fat, low calories foods, which we now know has no scientific basis and resulted in everyone consuming a lot more sugar!

After spending 11 years living in Barcelona, learning to cook real food and experiencing the improved health and well being that follows a Mediterranean diet, I decided to pursue more formal education.

I graduated in 2012 and since then I’ve been working with individuals and groups with a whole host of health conditions, helping them to improve or alleviate symptoms and always focusing on the underlying imbalance using The Functional Medicine approach.  More recently my specialist interest has grown in the area of perimenopause and menopause.  Helping women understand their bodies and advising them on the best options for them and how to stay healthy for the durations.

I’ve had plenty of problems and struggles myself – being a nutritionist doesn’t make you immune to stress or health issues that affect us all at some point in our lives.  However, using diet and lifestyle factors I’ve always been able to overcome them.  Having said that I don’t advocate an alternative approach to health and feel that nutritional therapy is more efficacious alongside good medical advice.

Therefore it’s my aim to help educate individuals so that they too can overcome difficulties and health issues and help them to achieve the healthiest version of themselves.
