About

Welcome! My name is Wendy Shillam. I’m a registered nutritionist. My mission is to help people to learn about nutrition, so that they may tread more lightly on the planet. By this I mean lose weight, reduce unsustainable eating and spare our carbon consumption.

If you’ve tried other diets in the past and they haven’t worked, then this clinic is for you.   I work from my home in Great Titchfield Street, a trusted place where women in particular can receive the very best advice throughout their weight loss journey.

I mainly work with peri- and postmenopausal women who need to lose weight or who would like to improve their diets.  I can also help if you are suffering from digestion issues, fatigue or low mood – all of which can have a nutritional cause. Go to the menu to find more detailed information about different types of consultation.  Whatever your problem, I’m happy to talk it through with you, before booking a consultation.

FAQ

Why bother at my age?

If you are over fifty and think that you’re over the hill, think again! The latest evidence shows that we can improve our body composition, even into our 90s.

Healthy diets are expensive?

I believe in using wholesome ingredients, no packets, no supplements, no factory produced products. I’m willing to bet that your weekly food bill will plummet, not rocket. And by eating fresh, local, simple foods you’ll be treading lightly on the planet, reducing your carbon footprint as well as the weight of your feet upon the scales.

HOW MUCH ARE CONSULTATIONS?

One-to-one consultations range from a check-up at £55, to an hour long consultation at £95.  If you wish to enter the fast weight loss programme you will need to attend a full half-day dietetic assessment which costs a one-off £485.  I charge an extra £100 to see people in their homes.  The initial pre-assessment (by telephone) is free.

Any diet will work?

As we age our dietary requirements change. So a diet that worked for you in your 30s or 40s stops working when you hit your 50s. As we age we tend to lose muscle mass and gain fat. That’s not healthy. I use non-invasive dual bioelectrical impedance monitoring to compute your body composition to ensure that you are losing fat, not muscle fibre.

Are fast diets safe?

The diet I use is a balanced low calorie diet, similar to diets that are recommended to reverse diabetes type 2 or lose weight prior to abdominal surgery, but it doesn’t require you to purchase packaged products. This is fast, but safe, as long as it is time-limited and well supervised. Alongside weekly face-to face monitoring, I insist on blood tests and heart rates to ensure that you remain healthy

I'm worried about yo-yoing?

Some nutritionists lose interest once you reach your goal weight. But 80% of people who successfully lose weight put it all back on. I help you follow your maintenance through the danger period that might endure for months, even a few years, post diet. If you can leap that final hurdle the evidence shows that you will have changed your body composition for life.  I’m so confident of your success that consultations during the maintenance stage are half-price, subject to your joining the maintenance club.

CAN'T I DO THIS ALONE?

it is easier to lose weight when you have support.  Getting support from a professional nutritionist, who is independent and unfettered by commercial programmes is a very good option. The maintenance club SAY TOMATO! brings us together for non-fattening and fun events.

SAY TOMATO!

SAY TOMATO! is a social enterprise founded by Wendy Shillam.  We run workshops, walks, talks and events. All clients are automatically enrolled in Say Tomato! and encouraged to remain in touch when they have reached the end of a course of treatment.  You can book individual events at a modest fee, or become a member to take advantage of the long-term support that is essential for weight loss maintenance.

Online payments for consultations with Wendy are managed through the Say Tomato! ecommerce website, which is registered as a secure website. But your personal information is kept offline and not shared with any other organisation.
