Have you ever wondered why some diets work amazingly well for others but do absolutely nothing for you? Practicing nutrition & holistic health coach, Megan Hallett, is here to explain why. Plus, she also talks about the book she just wrote with our very own Nicole Jardim!
Megan Hallett is a practicing nutrition and holistic health coach currently studying to be a nutritional therapist at London’s College of Naturalistic Medicine. She’s a huge wellness enthusiast, recipe developer, and voice behind the blog Plant-Based Londoner. Megan’s interest in hormone health came when she was diagnosed with PCOS as a teenager and was left frustrated to find doctors simply prescribed pills to mask the symptoms, rather than providing any information to enable her to tackle the root cause. Megan and Nicole also co-authored The Happy Balance: The Original Plant-Based Approach For Hormone Health, which will be released in May 2018.
