Email * Age * Occupation * Height (cm) * What are your health and nutrition goals? *
Please be as descriptive as possible. For example, if you want to lose weight, please tell me how much you would like to lose and when you would like to lose it by. Don't worry if you don't know if it's realistic as this is something I can then advise you on. We can work together to make sure they are achievable.
Do you track your food or have you ever tracked your food? *
By tracking, I mean entering the food and drink you consume into an app like My Fitness Pal.
Are you interested in tracking your food? *
If you click yes, it doesn't mean you will have to track your food. It just means I will give you more information about this. If you are not interested in tracking every day, I won't bore you with all the details!
Would you be willing to keep a food diary for a week? *
There is no right or wrong answer here. Keeping a food diary is a great way to understand what you are eating, especially if you don't want to track everyday.
Have you followed a nutrition plan before? What methods have you previously tried? What methods sis you find successful? If you no longer do them, why did you stop? *
For example - I have tried Slimming World in the past. I lost 5kg but wasn't able to keep it off. I found the diet restrictive so I wasn't able to keep it up. Please also let me know what has worked well for you in the past.
What would you say are your nutritional weaknesses? *
Tick all that apply
Please describe what you think is a 'bad' day of eating... * What causes you to have a 'bad' day of eating? * How do you feel after a 'good' day of eating? * Please describe what you consider a 'good' day of eating * Do you have any allergies, intolerances or dietary requirements? *
For example, vegan, vegetarian, gluten intolerant, nut allergy etc
What does a typical breakfast for you look like? *
Please give as much information as possible. For example rather than saying eggs on toast, please say 2 eggs fried in oil, 2 pieces of brown toast with butter. Please also include drinks - coffee with milk/small glass of orange juice etc.
What does a typical lunch for you look like? *
Please give as much information as possible. For example rather than saying a ham sandwich and a packet of crisps, please say Tesco pre made ham sandwich and a packet of quavers. Please also include drinks.
What does a typical dinner for you look like? *
Please give as much information as possible. For example rather than saying a pizza, please say a Lidl Sourdough chargrilled vegetable pizza. Please include any drinks.
How much time do you typically have to prepare your dinner? *
For example - I cook for the family and usually have about an hour from getting home to getting it on the table.
Please tell me what you usually snack on and how much *
For example: I usually snack on some fruit like a banana mid morning and a chocolate bar mid afternoon
Please tell me about your hunger and energy levels throughout a typical day *
For example - I am usually hungry about 2 hours after breakfast. I have an energy slump around 3pm. I am usually starving by 5pm and need a snack at 8pm.
What do you usually cook with? What are your loves and can't live withouts when it comes to food? *
This can be sweet and/or savoury.
Do you currently drink alcohol? * How much water do you typically drink per day? * What barriers do you feel may potentially stop you from achieving your goals? *
For example - I have to cook for the family which includes 2 children. They don't always want the healthier option so this could affect my choices.
What are you expecting from me? * What are your current exercise levels? * I spend most of the day sitting (desk job) and I do not do at least 30 minutes per day of intentional exercise. Activities of daily living only, such as shopping, cleaning, watering plants, taking out the bins, walking the dog, mowing the lawn and gardening. No moderate or vigorous activities. I spend most of the day sitting (desk job) and I do light exercise that is equal to walking for 30 minutes 3 times a week. More intense exercise can be performed for less time to achieve the same goal. For example, 15-20 minutes of vigorous activity, such as aerobics, skiing or jogging on a daily basis would put you in this category. I spend a good part of the day on my feet (e.g. teacher, salesman) and I do light exercise that is equal to walking for 30 minutes 3 times a week. More intense exercise can be performed for less time to achieve the same goal. For example, 15-20 minutes of vigorous activity, such as aerobics, skiing or jogging on a daily basis would put you in this category. I spend a good part of the day doing some physical activity (e.g. postman) and I do moderate exercise that is equal to walking for 1 hour and 45 minutes. More intense exercise can be performed for less time. For example, jogging for 50 minutes per day. I spend most of the day doing heavy physical activity (e.g. labourer) and I do hard exercise/sport daily.
If you don't feel you fit into any of these, please pick the closest and give more details in the next question.
