She is the Daily Mail’s ‘go to’ diet expert, has an in-depth knowledge of all diet plans – good and bad as well spent 30 years writing for a wide variety of major national magazines on a wealth of popular subjects.
Louise worked with model, Marie Helvin on the writing of her book about detox, ‘BodyPure’ (pub by Hodder Headline in 1995), then worked closely with top nutritional therapist Dr Marilyn Glenville on the writing of three books, ‘Osteoporosis: the silent epidemic’ (pub by Kyle Cathie in 2005), ‘Natural solutions to PCOS’ (pub by MacMillan 2012) and ‘Fat around the middle – how to lose that bulge for good’ (pub by Kyle Cathie in 2006).
