Do the Stacking Plan with me

As seen on Psychologies Magazine’s Life Labs Channel.

The Stacking Plan is a healthy-eating plan I have devised in order to solve the problem that many people struggle to make a lot of changes to their diet all at once. They want to eat healthfully – but they can’t! Too often it involves too much willpower, as well as information overload.

With the Stacking Plan, you just add in one healthful-eating habit per week, ‘stacking’ them on top of each other until all ten habits are in place. As you do so, the habits become habitualised, you feel the benefits, and the less-good tendencies get marginalised without you having to think about them. There’s no giving up – just adding in and feeling the benefits. 

And if you do indulge in non-beneficial foods, it’s fine – nobody is judging. This is about empowering you to make the choices that work for you.

I have learned over the years that this is the best way to:

– empower you with the knowledge you need to be healthy without you feeling confused or overwhelmed

– make healthy eating sustainable, doable and habitualised

You can do the Stacking Plan with the book and/or the vlogs, and, if you wish, the Stacking Plan Worksheet. Or you can do it with a personal weekly 30-minute session from me – just get in touch via the form at the bottom of this page.

If you work with me, you may also fill in a detailed health questionnaire which will enable me to look thoroughly at your specific issues so that we can address those and monitor your progress. I will advise on supplements, functional foods, and possibly laboratory tests.

Whether you are Paleo, vegan, raw, have a complex relationship with food, or anything else, we will work with your individual needs, preferences, and symptoms. Doing the Plan is likely to take ten sessions but can take less or more depending on the pace which works best for you.

If you like, you can get started straight away using my Salnutrition YouTube channel – first off is EATING BREAKFAST, so if you already do that you have already started. You should find that eating the right breakfast makes a big difference to how you feel and will set you up very nicely to add in the rest of the habits. You can do that yourself with the book and vlogs, or I can guide you through it.



DOWNLOAD THE Stacking Plan Worksheet:  Please note this is to be used in conjunction with the book and/or vlogs as you will need the extra info; but you can start right away whilst you wait for your copy to arrive.



I am also thrilled to announce that the Stacking Plan is coming soon as an app on  MyNutriCounter, winners of the 2016 UK Blog Awards for Health and Social Care.

‘Your book hasn’t just given me a fish – it’s taught me HOW to fish.’ (Natasha)

‘There aren’t any other books which actually teach you how to eat.’ (Claudia)

I'm going to do Factors 7-10 together, since that's how they can be done in real life.
Factor 7: DIGEST YOUR FOOD. That means chew, and relax, whilst eating. Try to resist eating lumps of food whole, like a dog, or getting up from the table to load the dishwasher whilst your meal is still heading in a southward direction. People report losing pounds just by chewing.
Factor 8: INGEST GOOD BACTERIA. Your bacterial load weighs almost as much as a newborn baby - and this microbiome is integral to your health. Get good bacteria from fermented veg (eg kimchi - note that South Koreans are about to overtake the Japanese as the no. 1 most illness-free people on the planet), kefir, live yoghurt, and supplements; eat vegetables to keep them hanging around in your gut.
Factor 9 - DRINKS. Water, herb tea, green tea, and possibly small amounts of organic red wine are beneficial. Coffee is mixed. Sugary drinks and fruit juice raise blood sugar and triglycerides, amongst other things.
Factor 10 - EAT LESS JUNK. By this stage in the Stacking Plan, Stackers have got their junk food under control anyway :D
That's it! You now know the ten basics. For more detail, you can order the book from Amazon :)
