Laura Thomas is a Nutritionist and Wellness advocate based in London. She helps people figure out their issues with food, sort through confusing diet advice and help people get their shit together around food.
Laura grew up in Scotland and went to the University of Aberdeen, where she studied Health Sciences, with a focus on Health and Nutrition. Laura got really interested in gut health and did some research on healthy gut bacteria (known to adults as the microbiome) for her honours project. This took her to the USA to continue her research and get a PhD in Nutritional Sciences at Texas A&M University, working with some of the best researchers out there. Then she packed up her stuff and headed on out to Washington, D.C. where she did a Nutrition Policy internship at the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
After that, it was up to New York where she was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Cornell University. After two winter’s worth of frostbite warnings and traipsing through snow up to her knees, she decided it was time to come home. Now a recovering academic, she gets her kicks from calling BS on the latest diet trends, (and helping people make meaningful changes to their diet and lifestyle.)
