About Jackie Lynch
I first discovered the power of nutrition about 17 years ago when I was working long hours in a senior corporate role. Within 7 days of following personalised nutrition advice I felt like a new woman! The dramatic changes in my energy, well-being and performance inspired me to give up my successful career and embark on a 4-year journey to study nutrition at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition.
In 2010 I set up my WellWellWell nutrition clinic to provide expert nutritional advice in a friendly and accessible way. My mission is to provide practical solutions planned specifically around you, to help you achieve your health goal without putting more pressure on your already-busy schedule.
I have a special interest in female health and my award-winning Menopause Nutrition Clinic supports busy women who want personalised nutritional advice with regular support and a flexible approach – some have chronic health conditions and others are keen to take a preventative approach to their healthcare or simply improve general well-being in midlife and beyond. My great passion is to make sure you retain the joy of eating delicious food at the same time as making smart choices for optimum health and well-being.
Keen to break the taboo around discussing the menopause, I launched The Happy Menopause diet and lifestyle podcast for women in midlife in 2019 and I’m proud to say that it’s now had over 100,000 downloads. Each monthly show introduces an expert guest and we discuss a specific theme from dealing with anxiety, low mood or loss of confidence to managing hot flushes, weight gain or insomnia.
My latest book The Happy Menopause: Smart Nutrition to Help You Flourish is out now and packed with symptom-by-symptom advice on how to manage your menopause with diet and lifestyle. It was Highly Commended in the category of Wellbeing Book of the Year in the 2021 Health & Wellbeing Awards. My clinical work has also inspired me to publish: Va Va Voom: The 10-Day Energy Diet and The Right Bite: Smart Food Choices For Eating On the Go. I’m a regular contributor of nutrition features for a range of print and online media and I’ve featured as a guest expert on TV and radio programmes, including Channel 4’s Superfoods.
I run regular nutrition workshops on a range of themes to support well-being in the workplace and I’m a Guardian Masterclass tutor.
As a Registered Nutritional Therapist, I’m accredited by the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), a government-sponsored registration body which has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I’m also a BANT-Registered Nutritionist® approved by the British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine. This means that my WellWellWell clinics and nutrition consultancy work meet the demanding standards of clinical excellence and professionalism required by these bodies. I keep abreast of the latest clinical and research developments by following a regular programme of Continuing Professional Development.
I’m proud to be a Fellow of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, the renowned training body for nutritional therapists in the UK, where I was Chair of Trustees for 11 years. In 2021, I was admitted as a Fellow Member of the British Association of Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) for services to nutritional therapy.
