Lucy has worked on multiple gastroenterology related research projects and co-developed national guidelines (NICE) for the dietary treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.

From theory to practise ...

Millie Hancock (aka @slimmingmillie) has a truly inspirational story.  

In her own words: "At 19 years of age, I weighed a tremendous 304lbs. I spent, what should have been, the best years of my life overweight, knowing I needed to change – and trying to – but failing.

Every single Monday I’d start a new ‘diet’ and every single Tuesday I’d have given up. This carried on for a good few years (in which the weight piled on)… Until I learnt it was all about a change in lifestyle, rather than the fad diets I was restarting each week. I learnt that I could lose weight, whilst eating all the foods I loved (in a lighter, more nutritious way)… Including chocolate!

One year on from this realisation, I’m 126lbs down, gone from a dress size 22 to a size 12 and a thousand times happier and healthier than I once was… All because I achieved that “balance” that I’d always heard about, a balance that allows one to eat all the cravings, whilst still feeling good on the inside and out."

Lorna Blount is a world-renowned journalist with more than a decade of experience in some of the world's most influential media organisations across the globe.

Previously at Sky News, she currently works at BBC World News in London as a multi platform producer and journalist. Passionate about health and fitness, she covers latest social media trends and developments in the industry.

zero waste

Come and listen to two legendary restauranteurs speak to Hannah MacInnes pioneering a new approach to "Zero Waste".

Douglas McMaster's award winning Brighton restaurant, Silo, was the first entirely "eco-eatery" this country saw.   Along with Tom Hunt's Poco, Silo was conscious of our ingredients and environment long before others had given it a thought.

Milling their own flour, brewing their own alcohol, serving everything in and on recycled jars and plates and receiving all their deliveries in re-usable containers are just a few of their innovative ways they're cooking awesome food achieving zero waste.

In their own words, "SILO WAS CONCEIVED FROM A DESIRE TO INNOVATE THE FOOD INDUSTRY WHILST DEMONSTRATING RESPECT: RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, RESPECT FOR THE WAY OUR FOOD IS GENERATED AND RESPECT FOR THE NOURISHMENT GIVEN TO OUR BODIES."

Justin Horne founded Tiny Leaf last year - London's first organic, vegetarian & zero waste restaurant. Their menu takes root in organic surplus food stock, generously supplied by local food suppliers and supermarkets, farms, distributors, plant breeders and retailers.  Their mission is simple and impressive: to make delicious dinners out of unwanted food.  Justin's story and ethos is fascinating, inspiring and will hopefully make you think twice when ditching your dinner.
