At the beginning of January, I started working with a fabulous nutritionist called Lamorna. I signed up for her 12-week Nutrition for Life programme. I’m going to be 40 in September (I may have mentioned this a few times). And this year, I wanted to focus on becoming the healthiest version of myself that I can be. But I didn’t want to try a fad diet and I didn’t want to starve myself. Instead, I wanted to learn about how I could…
