Size Matters – The Sequel

This is the updated and fifth edition of Size Matters and will be re-released later in the year as the sequel. Although it contains much of the original material in relation to my own personal story, the programme has evolved over the last 20 years.

Although I studied nutritional therapy back in the mid-1990s, I have continued my studies and developed new programmes for healthy eating that are tailor made for the individual rather than a one size fits all. I still believe that the key elements of this basic weight loss programme I will share with you in this updated version works. Even when I work with clients who have arthritis or diabetes, I still approach their programmes from the three dimensions that I outline in this book. Our physical approach, our mental attitude and our emotions are all factors in how we overcome disease and obesity, and should all be addressed when looking for the right programme that will work for each individual.


At age 42 I weighed 330lbs or 150kilos and was told that I would be unlikely to make 45. It was a wake up call, but having dieted many times before, I knew that I had to do something very different. This is my story of how I lost 150lbs in 18 months.. and the programme that I went on to share with hundreds of clients as a nutritional therapist.

Life or Death

The impact on consistent change throughout childhood and the stress reaction.

The Physical causes that contribute to obesity, including Candida Albicans, overuse of antibiotics, hormonal imbalance and starvation dieting.

This week’s chapter looks at the impact of an overgrowth of Candida Albicans on our overall health. The symptoms number around 125, and I included some of the key signs that your gut may have been compromised.

It is important to nourish your body and boost your immune system while you decrease the overgrowth of Candida by starving it of its favourite food….sugar.

This week a look at how our childhood can influence both our willpower and how we regard the food that we eat. Understanding your relationship to food is important for health and also for weight loss.

The Project Plan..

How much do you weigh now? And how much should you weigh to be healthy?

With any project plan you need to have a start point and and end point…measurement is the key to identify progress and also to create significant events that warrant celebration.

This week I share the abundance of food that you can enjoy as you lose weight… starving the body is not an option, and cutting out food groups is counter productive.

You need to have a start point and a way to measure progress whilst maintaining your motivation.

Just how much is a portion? How about fats?
