THE STORY ABOUT TABITHA HUME
I am Tabitha Hume, a fully qualified and Registered Clinical Dietician, with over 20 years’ experience in the private sector of dietetics practice.
I have devoted my life and passion to teaching people how to eat, in order to manage and cure their physical problems.
I do this for people of all ages, genders, sizes and cultures, who are
- physically sick,
- constantly tired,
- in pain,
- frightened and confused about nutrition
- and who are desperate to find a sensible lifestyle solution, that they find easy to fit into their unique lives.
I help people to feel healthier, calmer and free of pain or disease. I show people HOW to feel energised, empowered, and enthusiastic about eating well.
I will show you how a healthy and slimming lifestyle approach can become really easy and exciting.
Before long, you will abandon reliance on willpower for your success, and finally give yourself ‘permission’ to feel rewarded by delicious meals.
Revel in your appetite and celebrate food again!

Does she really have a problem with food?
As a parent, the fear of your teen developing an eating disorder is both real, and warranted, in the modern world.
I’ve included here some clear and simple points to look out for in your child/teen/pre-adult, that may just help open a dialogue and catch a developing problem early.
Do we REALLY need to Detox?
The main aim of a ‘Detox diet’ is to try to boost the body’s natural functions, to accelerate the elimination of all by-products or poisons that have accumulated in the body.
In the old days, it used to be fashionable to reduce …

In praise of the Apple
Is the phrase, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” just hogwash?
Mmmmm not really…
You see, apples are rather an amazing fruit.
Research shows a massive reduction in risk for lifestyle diseases the more we increase fruits and vegetables. So, this is an obvious one. So, physicians, step back!
The lowdown on sweetener
A little bit of sugar on various things in the diet is not only acceptable, it makes food taste lovely.
And it’s not bad for you. If it stays at a little bit.
The problems start when we overdo it. To give you an example of this excess would be that many people in the world wake to tea with 4 tsp sugar, whilst eating 2 pink sticky buns…
No Such thing as “Superfoods”
When I was little, I remember being given a little red, shiny tablet every morning after breakfast. “To make you strong and energetic” was the reason for the ritualistic dispensing of the iron supplement.
I still remember the complete delight as I felt the strength and energy welling up inside me as

Will power and blood sugar level

Exercise in Winter by Andries Lodder
The benefits of exercise go without saying, increased fitness, stamina and weight loss, but the advantages of frequent exercise go much deeper, especially during these winter months.Let’s be honest, leaving the house in winter is difficult, let alone exercising, its cold and dull and everything you do during these months just seems like an effort, exercise might just be the “get up and go” medicine everyone’s been looking for.
Getting Cold? Eat more carbs
We all have different metabolic rates, but have you noticed how some people seem to remain warmer, whilst others are perpetually cold?
The answer could lie in many problems, such as thyroid problems, ageing, hormones and medications. However, one of the quickest ways to warm up is to eat more carbohydrates!
Why do you comfort eat?
The hunger urge is extremely powerful. If we deny ourselves the satisfaction of the need for food, this need becomes an addiction.
We all have a fair perception about drug addiction. It is an insatiable need for a substance that produces powerfully pleasurable effects, so powerful that when the effect wears off, the user must have another fix.
WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING
"Tabatha help me loose 30Kg's and gave me the necessary nutritional insight that allows me to loose weight when I feel I need to. I live a busy and hectic schedule and I can go months not eating correctly but when I need to get back on track I apply Tabitha's diet and within months I am back on track. I originally weighed 123Kg and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I heard Tabitha on the radio talking to John Robbie and I said I have to try this. Needless to say, from the minute I walked in her practice my life changed forever. Tabitha empowered me to be aware of what when and how I should eat. Within 5 months I had lost 20Kg and had never felt better in my life. My next checkup 6 with my GP 6 months after visiting Tabitha my mmol /L had dropped from 19 to below 8 two hours after eating. The diet cured me and to this day I still test my blood sugars. If I find myself off track I get back to the diet and within a couple of months I back on track. Thank you Tabitha!! Just, thank you."
