I'm Zoe Connor, a registered dietitian and nutrition consultant and expert in advising on all sorts of diet-related issues. On request, I also carry out project work, report writing, talks, talking topress, writing for magazines, websites and professional publications. I also sometimes do Skype, phone and email consultation for people who want my advice but can't get to my clinic - including people from as far away as Saudia Arabia, Australia and Brazil.

Conor devised a programme to rebuild me - not to what I was before, but better. Many distance swim coaches frown on gym work. But since training with Conor I have done nothing but get faster. Anexample of this is in the recent New Zealand 10km Open Water Swim Champs. I won - against a much younger field. I am not a surf swimmer but yet I still managed to pull away from the field within the first km in huge seas simply because of the strength I have gained in the gym.
I run my own business, Blackberry Nutrition Limited. As well as seeing private clients at my clinic, I also advise businesses on employee health and stress management, and am a popular lecturer onfood and health to a wide range of other audiences, including schools, local societies and specialist groups for particular health conditions. But I have not always worked in nutrition!
We provide simple, science-backed dietary advice that is individually tailored and fits into your everyday life. To be successful, healthy eating must be fun and easy to incorporate in your dailyroutine. So we won't lecture you about what you should eat or judge your lifestyle. Instead, our approach is to work with you to provide friendly, practical advice and inspiration to help you eat a tasty, nutritious and healthy diet.
Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been repeatedly shown to support all the systems of the body and nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion ofhealth and peak performance. In addressing nutritional imbalances the body is supported towards optimum health and vitality. I use a functional medicine approach where focus is on the whole person and rather than treating individual conditions and symptoms and root causes of disharmony are explored.
My interest in nutrition began a number of years ago when I had first hand experience of the effect that diet can have on health. Most people would agree that eating well is fundamental to health, yetit is a frustrating fact that diet is often the last avenue to be explored when searching for an answer to health problems.
