Your plant-based path to rude health

A registered London-based nutritional therapist (Accredited by DipCNM, mBANT, mCNHC, The Royal Society of Medicine) and nutritionist. I help vegans and those seeking a plant-based diet thrive through the power of personalised nutrition.

In my capacity as a plant-based / vegan nutritionist and nutritional therapist, I perceive the human body as a holistic entity, recognising the intricate interconnections between all its systems. My primary objective is to restore harmony by implementing dietary adjustments, providing essential nutrients, and offering lifestyle recommendations. I am dedicated to uncovering the underlying triggers of my patients’ health issues and assisting them in conquering these challenges.

Being of Italian origin, my profound passion for food drives my approach. Instead of restricting foods, I emphasize the incorporation of delectable and nourishing options into your diet. With personalized nutritional guidance, I aim to empower you to flourish and rekindle your love for food once more.

Without a doubt, a life-changing experience. I have been working with Lucia since February 2022 as I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2. 5 months later, I have reverted the Diabetes, and have been able to regulate my glucose levels without insulin or any other medication.Lucia has a wealth of knowledge on how to best tackle a nutritional plan, that works in your favour, and is easy to transition into. Her knowledge of the science behind it helps to understand better step by step on why some foods work in certain way, and how it all works holistically.I fully recommend Lucia's Food Power Nutrition to help you find a healthier life.


Lucia helped me to manage my diabetes by teaching me about different foods that will help me manage glucose levels, but also by finding tasty recipes and foods i would never have known without using Lucia's service. She was easy to talk to, friendly and always took in to consideration my needs and has helped me with my confidence going forward. Would highly recommend contacting Lucia for nutrition advice and plans. Thank you ! :)


I came to Lucia because I suffer with eczema and I wanted to understand how food could help me manage my skin condition. From the start she was very helpful and extremely attentive to my needs, and drafted a programme that would work with my habits and taste. I really appreciated how supportive she was in following my journey, it showed she genuinely cares for her patients wellbeing and is passionate about making a positive difference in their life.


Lucia was a quintessential part of my journey throughout my second pregnancy. Having suffered with gestational diabetes during my first pregnancy it was my primary goal to avoid this happening again. Lucia went into real depth listening to mine and my family’s health history, analysing my diet and gave me an easy to follow nutritional and supplement plan. I was so incredibly happy that my Glucose Tolerance Test came back negative and I could continue with a healthy pregnancy. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Gestational Diabetes

I had been suffering with histamine intolerance for 2 years after taking antibiotics. I cut out so many foods, that, at one point I was only eating boiled chicken, carrots, green beans and rice; I spent so much money on different supplements and still I was not getting better.I was so desperate, I was not getting any help from the NHS.This left me so frustrated and depressed and I was now accepting that, I would never get better and would live on antihistamines for the rest of my life. I began to look for a certified nutritional therapist and I am so glad Lucia got in touch with me. I no longer take antihistamines. Her diet plan, and supplement recommendation has helped me and now, I have been able to reintroduce some healthy foods back into my diet. Lucia, has been very supportive throughout and would check on me to see how I was doing, which shows how much she genuinely cares about her patients.I can never thank her enough; I am no longer afraid to eat. I highly recommend her.

Histamine Intolerance

I was looking for a certified nutritional therapist in London and got in touch with Lucia a few months after giving birth. I was breastfeeding my baby, experiencing hormonal unbalances and my thyroid levels were all over the place. Lucia helped me to get through that amazing but challenging time with an easy-to-follow food plan that allowed me to feel energized and healthy. It was simple but extremely effective and realistic for me as a first time mom! She gave me so many alternatives and suggestions! Also…I got back my body!!! I strongly recommend Lucia: she is very professional, knowledgeable, supportive and extremely friendly at the same time!

Hormonal Imbalance

Lucia inspired confidence in me from the moment I met her on zoom. She asked very thorough questions and is an excellent listener. I found her knowledgeable, empathic and she understood the challenges of making lots of making lots of changes at once so encouraged me to set realistic goals. Lucia recommended a particular supplement along with dietary changes which have really worked to improve the joint issue I was experiencing. I like her philosophy and is such a pleasure to connect with her; I highly recommend her!


Lucia is a friendly nutritionist who is considerate of your personal dietary preferences. Working with her is really easy. The advice is clear. Lucia provides you with all the options you need to start including recipes and where to buy all the products. Since adding supplements after the appointment, I feel more energetic and have better understanding of what I need for better nutrition


NO MORE SYMPTOMS! Nutritional Therapist Lucia Stansbie has been friendly, helpful, encouraging and reliable - but, more than that, her in-depth knowledge of nutrition has also helped me to shed symptoms I had been struggling with for years, and this has proved sustainable too. Not only do I now feel very well and energetic in myself, but Lucia also provides prompt and concise answers to any questions sent to her in between sessions, which has kept me right on track. To my great relief, food has remained the adventure I have enjoyed all my life since this therapist's advice has generally been about adding new items and fine tuning the diet - which also makes it easier to leave the odd thing out where necessary. Thank you, you have made a real difference!


I cannot express enough gratitude for the incredible support and guidance I have received from Lucia in managing my PCOS through nutritional therapy. From the very first consultation, it was clear that Lucia is not only knowledgeable but also deeply passionate about helping individuals like me achieve optimal health through a personalized and holistic approach.


Lucia took the time to thoroughly understand my unique health challenges, lifestyle, and dietary habits. The personalized nutrition plan provided was not just a set of generic guidelines but a tailored roadmap that made sense for me. The emphasis on whole foods, balanced nutrition, and specific supplements was not only effective but also sustainable in the long run.


I am thrilled to share that, thanks to Lucia's expertise, I have seen significant improvements in managing my PCOS symptoms. From hormonal balance to increased energy levels, the positive impact on my overall well-being has been truly transformative. But perhaps the most remarkable change has been the restoration of my sense of happiness and confidence.


I am thrilled to report that, thanks to Lucia's guidance, I have experienced significant improvements in managing my SIBO and IBS symptoms. From reduced bloating to improved digestion, the positive impact on my gut health has been truly remarkable. Beyond the physical improvements, the newfound sense of well-being and comfort is a testament to the effectiveness of Lucia's approach.

Gut Health

Living with the challenges of SIBO and IBS had become a daily struggle, impacting not only my digestive system but also affecting my overall quality of life. Lucia demonstrated a deep understanding of these complex issues right from the beginning, and her holistic approach to nutrition and wellness stood out as a beacon of hope.

Gut Health

I wholeheartedly recommend Lucia to anyone seeking personalized and compassionate support in balancing gut health with a vegan diet. Her expertise, tailored approach, and unwavering encouragement make her an invaluable ally on the path to digestive wellness. Thank you, Lucia, for empowering me to not only prioritize my gut health but also celebrate the joys of a vegan lifestyle.

It's understandable to have questions when considering any type of holistic therapy. Below are some of the key questions I get asked about nutritional therapy and my clinic.

What’s the difference between nutritional therapist, nutrition coach and nutritionist?

In the ever-evolving landscape of health and wellness, the importance of seeking legit professional guidance for optimal nutrition cannot be overstated. Registered Nutritional Therapists play a pivotal role in promoting well-being by providing personalized and evidence-based nutritional advice. I wanted to explore the significance of consulting a Registered Nutritional Therapist, shedding light on their qualifications (a degree) and the importance of being registered with professional bodies like BANT (British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).

What is the difference between Nutritional Therapists, Nutrition Coaches and Nutritionists?

  1. Nutritional Therapists:
    • Focus: Holistic, addressing underlying health issues.
    • Qualifications: Hold a degree in nutritional therapy or a related field.
    • Registration: Registered with professional bodies like BANT and CNHC.
    • Approach: Personalized, evidence-based recommendations.
    • Scope: Work one to one with individuals dealing with specific health concerns.
  2. Nutrition Coaches:
    • Focus: Goal-oriented, often centered on fitness and weight management.
    • Qualifications: Vary; it is not a regulated profession and only some may have certifications in coaching or attended courses in
    • Registration: Not typically required, but some may hold certifications from coaching organizations.
    • Approach: Goal-focused, motivational, and lifestyle-oriented.
    • Scope: Assist clients in achieving specific health and fitness goals.
  3. Nutritionists:
    • Focus: General nutrition advice, public health, and community settings.
    • Qualifications: Hold a degree in nutrition or a related field.
    • Registration: Registered with professional bodies such as the AfN, but not always required.
    • Approach: Broad nutrition education and advice, which is not personalised to a 1:1 approach.
    • Scope: Work in diverse settings such as public health, research, or education.

In the pursuit of optimal health and receiving personalised and tailored 1:1 advice, consulting a Registered Nutritional Therapist stands out as a wise choice. Their holistic approach, personalised guidance, and commitment to professional standards set them apart. Ensuring that a nutritional therapist is registered with BANT and CNHC adds an extra layer of assurance, highlighting their dedication to excellence, knowledge and high standard of practice.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine. It is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or ‘consult’ a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals. Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

What is mBANT?

BANT (British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) is a professional organisation for Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and Registered Dietitians which are trained and qualified in clinical practice to meet national standards and work in a one-to-one setting.

BANT practitioner members are required to be registered either with Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) or be statutorily regulated. CNHC holds a register accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA), an independent body accountable to the UK Parliament. BANT members are also required to meet Continuing Professional Development (CPD) standards.

Being a BANT member highlights the high standard of my training and work practice, reassuring clients of the quality of the consultations and plans I provide at Food Power Nutrition.

How long would it take to see results?

Nutritional Therapy aims to create long lasting change. Those changes will be gradual but definitive, differently from allopathic medicine that aims to suppress symptoms for immediate relief. As each person is unique, also the speed on which results will be obtained is different and this is also impacted by how closely the suggested nutritional and supplemental plan is followed.

What should I expect to achieve after our appointments?

Food Power Nutrition plan are highly personalised, created around around your needs and your goal in order to obtain the best results possible. Saying that it is important to note that results vary from person to person as we are all unique and our body responds differently. Expectations and goals will be discussed during our discovery call.

What shall I do if I have questions in between my two appointments?

Please contact me at my email or via Practice Better chat service for support – I am always happy to help.

What is the cancellation policy?

Understanding we all lead busy lives, I can reschedule or cancel appointments without any charge if communicated with more than 48 hours notice. Appointments cancelled or rescheduled within 48 hours of the consultation time will be charged at 50%. Appointments cancelled or reschedule within 24 hours of your appointment time will be charged at 100%. A delay of more than 15 minutes for your consultation will lead to the appointment being cancelled and charged at 100%.

Does Food Power Nutrition operates only online?

Food Power provides online consultations via a dedicated platform. Online consultations will be held via telehealth/zoom and can be easily accessed via the client’s “Practice Better” portal. In person consultations will be held on Thursday evenings at Elpis Therapy Rooms, 14 Hanover Square, Mayfair, London W1S 1HN
