A healthier choice mantra...
Thank you so much Bella. 7lbs lighter and clothes I had put away now fitting me again. Planning to keep going with the ‘make a healthier choice’ mantra and not throw all the good habits away if a less healthy choice pops in now and then.
Busting some “best diet” myths
When you think about your diet and your attitude to healthy eating, does it feel like you’re doing a slightly crazy version of the Hokey Cokey? You’re in, then out, back in, then out again and before you know it, you’re shaking it all about in a wobbly, tired, ‘JUSTGIVEMETHECHOCOLATE’ or ‘PASSMETHEWINE’ slump?
You want to eat better food, feel more energetic and less bloated but for *some* reason you’re struggling to do it. Ironically, you don’t have the time, energy, motivation or willpower to make it happen. Or maybe you’re not sure how, because we get blasted from all angles with a million different theories about the foods that are going to make us thin, fat, dead, demi-gods or rich* (*erm, some of those might be exaggerations).
How, for the love of muffins, are we supposed to know what’s best for us?
It doesn’t have to be rocket science,
don’t have to
do it alone. ..
Get all the tools, support and advice that you need to say NO to the yo-yo from only £45

Giving me the boost to get healthy
Thanks Bella! Really enjoyed learning from you and giving me a boost to get healthy. I’ve lost nearly 12 pounds and couple of inches from the waist… but most important of all; I’ve got into the bridesmaid dress I need to wear in a week and a half!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO’S BEHIND THIS GORGEOUS PROGRAMME?
Well, that’ll be me!
I’m Bella – you can read all about me here.
I initially launched this 4 week programme in March 2015, but it was something that I’d been working on and testing out on myself waaaaay before that. I was working in London in my corporate role, spending 3 hours commuting each day. I was stress-rich and time-poor, as so many of us are. I wanted to lose a bit of weight, but I was more focused on feeling more like ‘me’ again. I was feeling sluggish and grey from the inside out, tired and IBS-ridden and exhausted and moody as hell. The ‘me’ that I remember was always a lot brighter, a lot bouncier and a heap more balanced, but she seemed pretty much lost. I’ve always been a bit of a stubborn cow though – and I refused to let that Bouncy Bella disappear for good. So, using my nutritional ninja skills that I’d been studying for, I pulled together this plan. And, by gosh, by jove and by all of them beauties – it worked a treat.
So then I tested it out on a few friends. And it worked for them too. And the results weren’t just about weight loss. Yes, inches were being lost and smaller-sized wardrobes were out in full force… But people were feeding back joyful accounts of sleeping better than they had in years, of feeling more energetic and full of life, of having glowing skin and ridding themselves of bloat that they had thought was here to stay.
WHEN DOES THE PROGRAMME START?
The Winter programme starts on Monday 9 January 2017 – you’ll get your meal plan and shopping lists the week before. And if you’ve signed up for the exercise package, you’ll be sent the videos in advance too, so you can ask questions and hit the ground running! (So to speak!)
Of course, if that start date doesn’t work for you, you’re welcome to follow the meal plan in your own time.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I’VE PAID MY MONEY?
Once you’ve paid by credit/debit card, you’ll get an email with some details about what to expect in the run up to the start of the programme.
Before the programme starts I’ll ask you to fill in a questionnaire to tell me a bit more about what you’re hoping to get out of the programme and some other pre-programme ‘homework’ (it’s very friendly and easy homework, I promise!) that will help you in the long term. You’ll also be given access to the Facebook group.
On the Friday before the start of the programme, I’ll share with you the meal plan, with the recipes and their ingredients (shopping lists laid out for each of the recipes) so that you can plan your week and get your shopping done. If you’ve signed up for the exercise package, you’ll get the relevant details of that at the same time. I also give you some hints and tips about how you can best prepare for the week ahead – so literally, I’m taking the guess work out of everything.
HOW DO I GET ACCESS TO THE FACEBOOK GROUP?
Once you’ve signed up, I’ll send you a link to the Facebook group where you can request to join in the fun! I will get a notification through to say you’re knocking on the door, and I’ll let you in with a swooping bow and a gracious tip of my hat. If that doesn’t work, you’ll get an invitation or email asking you to join. And if that doesn’t work, then we’ll sit on Mark Zuckerburg’s front lawn threatening to get all inappropriate if he doesn’t let you in. It will happen. Fret not.
DO I GET ALL 4 WEEKS’ WORTH OF MEAL PLANS AT ONCE?
No – I send out each week’s recipes and meal plans the Friday before the start of the new week.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW THE MEAL PLANS TO THE LETTER?
Oh God no. The meal plans are suggestions, and an indicator of what you *could* potentially do throughout the 4 weeks. The meal planning masterclass will help make sure that you’re tweaking things in a way that suits your life.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE EXERCISE PACKAGE
If you sign up to the ‘Nourish and move’ package, you’ll be in the capable hands of Jade and Jonny from Target Human Performance. They have created a progressive 4 week exercise programme, with modifications (so it will suit beginners, intermediates and more advanced exercisers!), designed to compliment the meal plan programme. So you get a good balance of movement and grub!
The exercise programme is delivered via online videos – you’ll get 3 of them a week for you to complete. Jade and Jonny will be in the Facebook group daily to answer any questions you might have about technique, or to provide substitute exercises if you have any injuries etc. If you want to know more about how to work exercise into your daily routine – they’re the people to ask!
I’m really excited to be able to offer this perfect blend of nourishment and movement to the Kickstart programme. It’s gonna be a fan-flipping-butt-kicking-tastic way to make sure that you’re kickstarting healthy habits!
DO I HAVE TO DO EXERCISE?
Obviously you will know that regular movement and getting your heart rate up is good for you. You will feel a whole heap better for it.
Having said that, I’ve had people come through the programme who haven’t been able to exercise due to injury, and have still had great results. So if you’re injured, or if you can’t face ‘formal’ exercise and your preferred method of exercise is a kitchen disco to Justin Bieber then that’s super cool with me (well, sort of… I can’t say I’m a Belieber…)
Ultimately, the most important thing about exercise/movement is that you do it and that you enjoy doing it so that you’ll want to keep doing it! You get me? I’d far rather you MOVED throughout the day in small ways than sat on yer bum and then went crazy for half an hour.
DO I HAVE TO BE A CHEF TO COOK THESE MEALS?
Definitely not. I’ve had people who’ve never done more than order in or boil some pasta before – and they’ve walked out the door after the 4 weeks with new found cooking adventures tucked under their belts. Seriously, I am not a chef. I’m someone who enjoys eating food that works well for my body. And to do that, I had to learn to make that food. My recipes are easy and quick (with one or two exceptions that might take a bit longer at the weekend). I’m all in favour of shortcuts and easy wins. And I am always happy to give you an honest review of a shop-bought easy option if you want it.
DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP MY VICES OF COFFEE, CHOCOLATE AND WINE?
Well, that’s up to you. You’ll see the best results if you’re cutting stuff like that out. But I certainly don’t dictate that it has to happen. I have the childish rebel in me who will likely drink a gallon of wine if I’m told I can’t have any. If I choose not to have any because it’s my own decision… well, that’s a different story. So, the choice is yours.
I share some tactics and strategies to help you deal with cravings and having food/drink out of habit (not out of genuine enjoyment or hunger)… it’s important to think about why you want your vice.
I’M VEGETARIAN / VEGAN, CAN I DO THE PLAN?
Abso-freaking-lutely – it’ll be a doddle for vegetarians as I provide veggie alternatives to all recipes. For vegans, we can work together to make sure that you’re substituting things like eggs or cheese for easy alternatives. Just let me know when you join the Facebook group and we can make sure that you’re adapting the plan to suit you.
I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY OR INTOLERANCE - WILL I BE ABLE TO DO THE PROGRAMME?
In the main, yes – most of the recipes are gluten free anyway and most supermarkets offer dairy-free alternatives that can be used. For peanut and other allergies, it may be slightly trickier, but that’s not to say it’s not possible. If you’d like to talk about it – please book in for a call and we can make sure that it works for you.
CAN I CANCEL ONCE I’VE PAID?
Hopefully you won’t want to – you do get a fair amount of the information up front in an electronic format, which means that you can’t return the goods you’ve bought. So the short answer is no. But if you’ve got a problem with the service you’ve had from me, then please do get in touch so that we can talk about it and make a plan.
I think I’ve covered a lot there – but if you still have a few questions that you’d like me to answer, get in touch!
LOVE for the programme:
“I loved the recipes and trying things I don’t usually like – to find that I DO like them! I love the support that we get from you. You make it so that I’m not afraid to ask questions”
“I really enjoyed doing the 4 week plan, it’s been amazing and will definitely join up to another one. The recipes are amazing, I feel so much more confident cooking now and know more about healthy foods so I make better choices . Bella is amazingly supportive and I would recommend this
“Thank you so much Bella – you’ve honestly changed my life! I really enjoyed the four week programme – not only was the food delicious – I’ve been introduced to foods I didn’t know a) existed or b) that they were yummy – but the support from both you and the FB group was invaluable! I’ve also lost 3.5 inches, feel so much better and you’ve helped me to start listening to what my body needs, actually think about what I’m putting in it and stop eating stuff just because it’s there. I would recommend anyone to try this – it is all in the preparation, but after that it’s a doddle “
“Thanks again Bella you and your programme have provided everything I wanted and I didn’t think it was possible to feel really full on lovely healthy tasty food. It’s definitely a way of life now.”
“I have always been on a diet and always been starving which meant ultimately I ended up failing, stuffing my face with rubbish and then feeling sluggish. I was interested in Nutribelle because I wondered if there was a better way to lose weight by feeling full and eating healthily. I signed up for the Nutribelle four week course and it has been everything I wanted and needed. Bella sends you an email setting out the weekly recipes, how to prep so you’re not constantly in the kitchen as well as great advice in her unique hilarious way. The recipes are gorgeous and I am never hungry. Bella also suggests sweet and savoury snacks which are good for you and killed my sweet tooth cravings! Bella supports you as much as you need her too and without being patronising. She has a great sense of humour, is encouraging but is also realistic. She doesn’t expect you to live like a nun but helps you by suggesting ways round social occasions and how to combat the bad with the good. In four weeks I have lost weight so easily even having had a busy sociable month. My clothes feel looser and I just feel better in myself. I will definitely be continuing to use her recipes and healthy living suggestions as its now become a way of life. Thank you Bella I’ll look forward to the next course! X”
“This has been wonderful and the results are way beyond expectations! Armed with the knowledge from from this program there are no excuses going forward. No more feeling bloated. Energy levels much higher. Happy that my portion sizes have shrunk. As I said at the start, my goal was to learn the healthy habits. I feel I have really improved in this. Big bonus is the belly is shrinking. Thank you so much.”
