Below are a selection of testimonials from my clients:
“I was happy with the health advice that Kate provided me with. I have acted on it and benefited from it. Furthermore I would recommend her as she is very knowledgeable and helpful.”
“Kate was really helpful in helping me combat my fatigue, she provided me with a diet and supplement plan that was very in-depth but also easy to follow. Since doing the plan with Kate I have had a lot more energy to do the things I love. Kate was very knowledgeable and provided me with lots of helpful information. I’m very glad that I went to see Kate and I recommend her highly.”
“I feel amazing since following the plan. I have more energy and was able to do the gardening. My stomach has improved. Thank you for all that you are doing it is really working.”
“I come back to you because you are very knowledgeable. You are kind and I can tell you want to help me. Thank you for your time and seeing me at short notice. I will give your phone number out to my friends.”
“Although I haven’t been with Kate for very long, my association with her has been nothing but positive as my main problem has been with weight and also, due to being just into my 70s I have gained some really bad habits with regard to the type of food I was eating.
In my first week I lost 6 lbs. and this is only due to Kate’s knowledge and encouragement. She has suggested that I email her every week with weight results and I know that this will keep me on the straight and narrow. Kate has also sent me various tools to help me in my quest to improve my diet and for this I am really grateful to her. I would add here that I have found Kate extremely approachable and helpful; I know that I can contact her at any time and that she will be coming back to me with any advice that I may need at the time.
With regards to cost, what price do you put on health? There are probably more expensive methods out there but to be honest, the cost encourages you to make it work. But there again, cost is a relative thing and what one person might consider expensive, someone else may not. However if you are determined to make it work then in this respect you are receiving value for money and will have no regrets at all.
With regards to her knowledge, she has helped me to readjust my thinking about food. I don’t really know how this has happened so quickly but it is a great feeling and this has helped so much with my self confidence. I think the results so far speak for themselves.
Kate has achieved the best and most positive attitude in my mind which has been sadly lacking for the past 20 years. Long may it continue.”
“Thank you for all the useful information you have shared with me. I feel more confident and a lot better since I started following the weight loss meal plan. I lost over 1 stone in the first month. My asthma has gone and I’m able to walk without getting out of breath. I no longer need to use my inhalers everyday. My joint pain has improved as I have lost weight. With the meal plans to follow, I feel that I can continue on this healthy diet in the long-term.”
“Kate is lovely and very knowledgeable lady and friendly in everything she says and has given me so much advice on nutrition, supplements, and what to eat, protein, etc so very helpful and nothing is ever too much and I have learnt a lot and I am still learning now. She points me in the right direction. Very friendly and open lady.”
“I suffered from a “rumbling stomach” during the night and this would disturb my sleeping pattern. Kate O’Riordan talked to me about the good and bad bacteria which we all have in our digestive systems. She recommended I took Acidophilus as I had more bad bacteria than good. Since taking the tablets the problems I was suffering with have subsided and this was only after three days and I have now been on them for three weeks. I am sleeping more or less through the night now.”
“Since I started with Kate a month ago, I’ve lost 1 stone. The dinner salad recipes from the meal plan are quick and tasty. I never thought I would crave an omelette! My headaches are not as often. I’ve only had two this week and I was having them everyday. I’ve been able to reduce my migraine medication. I have better energy and I’m not having to sleep so much. Overall I’m feeling better in the day.”
“I followed the plan and my heartburn has gone! I don’t feel sick all the time. Also I’m more regular. I’m sleeping better and I feel less stressed. Thank you for your help.
“I felt apprehensive about whether it would work, but it did! I’m glad I came to see Kate. I feel energised. Over the last month I’ve lost nearly a stone. The water retention in my legs has gone down and I’m able to walk up the stairs one by one. I now have the energy to exercise and I’m going out more.”
Update 6 months later: “I’m still following your info just to let you know, I have lost just over 3 stone, it’s taken a while, I’m walking approx 8000+ steps a day playing walking netball every 2 weeks, and feeling very well, thanks for your start.”
“After coming to see Kate, my energy has improved and so has my brain fog. My sinuses have been good for a while now. I no longer feel like I’m coming down with colds. Also I feel more full after eating. I’m feeling better on the whole. Thanks for all your help.”
“It was great coming to see Kate and having someone to talk to who knows about Candida. After a month following her plan, I feel much better and not as foggy. My memory is coming back. My dandruff has cleared up and I have less hair loss. On top of that I’ve lost nearly a stone in weight. Thank you so much!”
“Within 2 days of changing my diet, my stomach discomfort and constipation disappeared. It’s fantastic! Thank you for telling me about my food intolerance, I never thought it could cause so many problems. My sleep is better and my energy is good. I’ve stopped getting headaches on waking in the morning. Thank you for your help.”
“After a month of following the plan I have lost 3kg and 1inch around my waist. Although the weight is going down slowly, it has stayed off! I am feeling really energetic and positive. My fatigue is better. Also my constant cough has gone as my immunity has improved. My headaches are gone after one month and I no longer need my ibruprofen or paracetamol. Also the dry, peeling skin on my feet has gone away. The supplement I took one week before the start of periods really seemed to help as I did not bleed overly this time. I don’t feel bloated and my loose stools are better. My joint pains are better and I’ve been sleeping more.”
“I have been delighted with your help and suggestions. I am more organised with my eating time. Also I feel a lot more confident with cooking as I now know what to cook, and I don’t feel deprived. I have no bloating and in general have more energy. My headaches are gone and my skin is better. Speaking personally for my requirements, I consider having the help of a nutritionist working with me, as part of a team, essential for my wellbeing and future health requirements. Provided I continue to follow your advice, as often and as much as possible, it is another step towards staying healthy and keeping me strong. Understanding a little more about my nutritional requirements helps me to feel a little empowered and helps me feel I am able to take a little more control of my situation.”
“I came to see Kate as I needed to know what is the right thing to do with diet for my chronic thrush and constipation, and for her support.
After the first 2 weeks my stomach ache had gone and I had no bloating. After a month I have improved digestion and my constipation has gone from 10 (with 10 being the worst) to 2-3. My thrush is a lot better and my sore mouth is better. I feel more awake, more alert and more alive! I am no longer fuzzy headed and my memory has improved. I’ve lost 3lbs and my clothes don’t feel so tight, I can even get back in to the monsoon skirt that I’ve kept for 8 years! For the last 2 weeks I’ve slept better, had no headaches and don’t feel so tired. Thank you for all your advice and help, it’s made a real difference to me.”
“I came to Kate to beat chronic fatigue and work out the reason for my troubles. Now 1-2x mornings a week I’m not as tired. Things are coming in the right direction. I’m feeling brighter in myself. I have a little bit more energy. I’ve been able to do more. I’ve gone from doing a 7 minute walk everyday to being able to walk for 15 minutes plus do a 10 minute workout everyday. A lot of my digestive symptoms have cleared up. I now have no bloating and no gas. My constipation is easing slightly. Also my hayfever has cleared up. Thank you for your help.”
“After 3 weeks on the programme I have got some relief from my brain fog and concentration levels. I am also getting bursts of energy which is a good sign. After 6 weeks I’m gradually noticing more energy back in small bursts. I’ve been able to do the gardening, go on longer walks and have a faster recovery time. My neck is loosening up, my skin is slightly better over time and sleep’s pretty good. I have been really enjoying working together and find the programme interesting and helpful, and positive that by the end I will hopefully have a huge improvement and on the road to a full recovery.”
I’ve lost 10.5lbs since starting with you and the gym. I’m having more energy. I’ve had less bad bouts (of diarrhoea) and they are quick one offs. I can now go out without having to worry about rushing to the toilet and sitting there for half an hour. I stopped taking the omeprazole a week ago and I haven’t had acid reflux. My husband said it’s been worth it and that I look better. It’s been really beneficial working with you. Thanks for all your help.
“After 6 weeks things are starting to stabilise. My constipation is improving without a doubt. It’s easy to go. I haven’t had movicol for 5 weeks. I’m happy where I am, to where I was. I’ve achieved 90% of what I wanted. I’m pleased with the improvement.”
“My energy level has gone from 1/10 to 7/10 in 4 months. I feel much better. I can think about running again. Also I joined a netball team and I’m going on walks. I’m feeling more positive. It’s made me realise what I can do and what I can control. I feel in a really good place at the moment. I’ve got all the things I need. I consciously made changes and I’m feeling better. It made such a big difference. Thank you, I appreciate it.”
‘I have suffered from extreme bloating and dietary issues caused by a medical condition for several years. After consulting with Kate, following her advice and easy to follow diet plan, I have seen a remarkable improvement in my symptoms. I cannot thank Kate enough for all her help, advice and support and would highly recommend her.’
“The pain in my hip and back has receded. I’m getting a better night’s sleep and feel happier. It has lifted my spirits. The pain in my ankle and my shoulder pain has gone. I’m not so hungry. I haven’t had sugar cravings and I’m not comfort eating. I’ve lost some weight. Also I feel quite energised and vibrant. I used to dread going to bed, but I look forward to going to sleep now. I’m more optimistic and I feel I can go to the gym, as well as going swimming and cycling. I’ve got the tools I need. I’m in a different place now to when I started. Thank you so much.”
“After 4 weeks of following the plan, I’m feeling more energetic and bouncing back quicker after feeling tired. I’ve been doing more and have been back co-ordinating a project making 90 quilts for a charity. My brain fog is dissappearing. I did a bit of gardening, digging up weeds and planting seeds. I haven’t gardened for a year. When I was ill with long covid I was doing 1000-2000 steps per day, now I’m doing 10,000 steps per day, sometimes 12,000 steps. I reorganised the kitchen and have been decluttering the house, as I had the capacity to do it in my head. I have more energy, more motivation and more clarity of mind. Sleep has been better in general. Also I’ve lost 2kg in weight. I’m not craving sugar so much.
After 8 weeks, I have more energy to garden and have been removing weeds from the paths. I’m not having to stop when I feel tired. I sit down, rest and then feel better. People I know are saying I look better. They said I used to look grey. I realised just how ill I was before. I now am able to start crafting again including quilting now that I have a much clearer head. I feel more like my old self again. I feel fantastic and more alive. It’s working, so thank you very much.”
“When I first had the initial conversation with Kate about my health concerns, I felt that I had too many things I wanted to tackle at the same time, and I was worried that I would have too many things to implement in one go. But Kate did an amazing job of helping me focus on one thing at a time. I found Kate’s programme very easy to follow and was able to implement some very important things like drinking more water and finding ways to keep increasing my water intake.
I especially liked the way she would not only give you some ideas of how to increase vitamins through your daily diet, she would also add some very easy recipes to make at home which was also something I was very happy with as I am a mother with a busy life. As a family we have all benefitted from this programme, as I have started now swapping some unhealthy snacks for the children and cooking more meals during the week. I am also definitely feeling more alert, and have not got any slumps or dizziness during the day due to my improved diet. I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone looking either to lose weight or be healthier as she is very patient and a very good listener who will go the extra mile to make sure you are able to slowly improve your diet and lifestyle.”
