Emily the Nutrition Coach

Nutrition & health coach

As a nutrition & health coach I am uniquely qualified to support you through both the physical and psychological aspects of eating and eating behaviour. Often it is the small changes to your food intake and lifestyle that can have the biggest impact for health improvement. I can help you identify these changes, and support you to make them sustainable.

About me

Dr. Emily Wilkinson PhD, MMedSci, BSc.

Nutrition & Health Coach

Hi, I’m Emily and I am a Nutrition & Health Coach based in Bollington, near Macclesfield. I have an accredited Master’s in Human Nutrition and a PhD in Appetite Psychology.

I am uniquely qualified to work with clients using a behaviour-based approach to health improvement & nutrition, with a key focus on food and body relationships.

Who do I work with?

My clients range from those aiming to lose a few pounds, to those who want to focus their food intake to support sport performance. I work with numerous clients who have more specific food or body issues including those who suffer with medical conditions such as IBS or IBD, those with specific food allergies or intolerances, and those suffering with eating disorders or have disordered eating practices. I also help vegans and vegetarians find a balance with their intake to ensure they are getting all the vitamins & minerals they need, and women at peri-menopausal age through to post-menopause, who are experiencing changes in appetite and body shape.

The health halo.

All food contains calories regardless of how “healthy” they are.

You can (and probably should) still eat these foods, but just be aware of portion sizes *if you are actively trying to lose weight* Enjoy them. 

YOU NEED CALORIES BECAUSE THEY GIVE YOU ENERGY. AND YOU NEED FOOD BECAUSE IT COMES WITH BENEFICIAL NUTRIENT SO YOU CAN SURVIVE & THRIVE.

Was this helpful??

Ps. Eat your veg.

Stress free fat loss.

It can be done.

Think *sustainability* 

Don’t go too low too quick, you’ll just feel too hungry.

Choose satiating foods with plenty of variety. Health matters.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. You control what you eat, the food doesn’t control you. You can make things work regardless of the situation. 

Ok… that’s multiple reasons.

And if you need help, give me a shout.

Seen as it’s almost the weekend….

Let’s talk all or nothing.

Or, all or something?!

Stop striving for perfection. Just a conscious action, a choice to engage in a health behaviour is enough.

Sorry this is a lot longer than normal but heres a bit of chocolate/sugar reduction education.

Why we can’t “just take the sugar out” of our favourite foods.

The real question is “do we even need to”?

Foods are meant to be enjoyed. Foods like chocolate are meant to be enjoyed in moderation.

The problem is never the food itself. Chocolate is delicious, as it should be.

Ps. Chocolate labelled as sugar reduced tastes like 💩 It’s not chocolate. 

Need help? DM me.

PLEASSSSEEEE stop believing everything you read!

If we keep listening to the next new big thing in dieting, we’re going to run out of things to eat. 

We didn’t get it right with grapefruits.

We didn’t get it right with cabbage soup.

Gluten free faded out. 

If we believe everything we read now, we would currently be dying from…

Carbs 🥖
Meat 🥩
Carbs 🥔
Vegetables 🥦
Processed foods 🍪
Anything cooked 🍝
Carbs 🍐
Solid foods 🍣
Anything Tim Spectre doesn’t like 🧁
Carbs 🥪
Your own gut microbiome because you ate a carb 🦠 

Instead, let’s focus on the tired & tested.

Want to lose weight? Calorie deficit. In whatever way is most sustainable for you.

Eat your fruits & vegetables (please carnivores).

Eat fibre (also, please carnivores).

Eat less saturated fat 🥓 & more polyunsaturated fats 🥑

Eat lean sources of protein 🐓 

❌DELETE anyone with extreme views that preach the removal of entire food groups.

… anyone that works in absolutes “it WILL ruin your health”

… anyone who doesn’t understand inflammation. 

Thanks.

Let’s talk about chocolate…

For anyone who didn’t know, I used to work in the food industry for product research in confectionery so I know a lot about chocolate.

Hit me with any questions!

Give me strength ☕️ 

The theory is that coffee [caffeine] has been “proven” (it hasn’t) to “encourage fat storage around the mid-section” through the stimulation of adrenaline, in turn stimulating cortisol (stress hormone) release. 

In the body, every action has MULTIPLE reactions. It is the NET of these reactions that matter, i.e., do the positives outweigh the negatives or vice versa?

So yes, caffeine intake does stimulate a small increase in cortisol, but…

Caffeine intake actually promotes weight loss (or at least reduces weight gain) because it ALSO increases metabolic rate, fat oxidation, & energy expenditure, & reduces appetite. 

In addition, moderate caffeine consumption is generally associated with some health benefits e.g., reduced risk of certain diseases, improved physical & cognitive performance.

One for the ladies. Just a few practical nutrition tips to help with appetite when going into peri- & menopause. 

Easier said than done so please reach out if you need additional support.

And please be aware that nutrition can be supportive when trying to reduce symptoms, but nutrition is not medicine. It can not be used as a replacement for HRT.

frequently asked questions

What is a nutrition and health coaching?

It is a supported intervention to help you improve your nutrition and health sustainably, focussing on your goals, lifestyle & health behaviours. 

What is a food plan?

A guide to support your food choices by helping you to understand food groups, nutrients & appropriate portion sizes.

Do I need to be local to use your services?

No, I work with most of my clients over video call. If you are local, you can also enjoy AW Muscle and Fitness, Personal Training & MyPrepPal food service, which can all be integrated into your health plan.

What are your qualifications?

I have an accredited Masters in Human Nutrition, and PhD in Biopsychology with a specific focus on appetite.

What is the difference between the 6-week programme & monthly coaching?

The 6-week programme is more in-depth than monthly coaching. If you have any food/body relationship issues, or specific medical diagnoses, I would advise starting with the 6-week programme as we have more time to work through the root causes and challenges that may be affecting your ability to achieve your goals.

How do I book in for a free call and/or consultation?

Please click on the link in the ‘who do I work with’ section on my website & complete the enquiry form.

Do I have to have a check-in every week?

Whilst I would advise weekly check-ins at least in the first instance, I do also offer fortnightly check-ins. The cost is the same, but spread over a longer time period.

What happens if I miss a check-in?

If you cannot make a check-in, please let me know as soon as possible, ideally with 24 hours notice. In most cases, check-ins can be rearranged. If you miss a check-in without notification, you will not be able to redeem this check-in and no refunds will be given.

How do you take payment for your services?

For the 6-week programme & first month of monthly coaching, payment can be made via BACS. Following this, payments are made via standing order, which you may cancel at anytime with notification to emily@awmuscleandfitness.com.

If I cancel my standing order half way through a month, do I get a refund?

No, you are welcome to use the remainder of your check-ins, but no refund will be given if you choose not to attend your final check-ins.
