Are hormonal imbalances stopping you from being your best?

If you're in your mid-40s to mid-60s and want to take a natural approach to feeling good in your body again, I can help.

Is This You

Do any of these sound like you?

  • Brain fog?
  • Can’t think clearly?
  • Tired all the time?
  • Wind, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea or both?
  • Cravings you can’t get rid of?
  • Or gaining weight and you haven’t changed a thing?

Many women don’t feel right and go to see their doctor, only to be told, “There’s nothing wrong with you.”

Nutritional therapy can help. Let me show you how.

Targeting your nutrition and lifestyle with bespoke advice from a qualified professional, can help you feel good in your body again, without going hungry, feeling deprived, or counting calories.

I’m Veronica Lim, Founder of Behind The Food Nutrition. I’m one of the most highly qualified nutritional therapists in the UK and the very first UK functional medicine health coach, and I help women like you take back control of their health. My approach is evidence-based, simple, safe and realistic, and I address the root cause of your symptoms so you can reclaim the best version of yourself.

I know what it’s like to not feel your best because I’ve been there.No one really understands how you feel because you don’t look sick. But you know you’re not right. You keep it under wraps, especially at work, and hope that no one notices. But at home, it can be a different story.

“Will I ever, can I ever feel like myself again? How can I feel at home in my body?”

You Are Not Alone.

Hormonal or digestive health problems are keeping women like you from feeling and achieving their best.

Here at “Behind The Food Nutrition”, I take a whole woman approach to your health. Nutritional therapy is not just about eating the right foods; it’s also about what goes on “behind the food”. Using my 3S method, I look in-depth at your health history, hormones, lifestyle, mindset and environment. I also look at signs and symptoms that may seem unrelated, and together with functional lab testing, I join the dots and formulate a tailor-made diet, lifestyle and supplementation plan specifically for you and with you.

Let me be your guide, and we’ll get you feeling vibrant, strong and confident, and feeling good in your body again.

Private consultations are available either in person in Hartley Wintney (near Fleet) in Hampshire, or online via Skype or Zoom.

RooT Cause Approach

Functional Medicine Approach - Root Cause

In Functional or Lifestyle Medicine, we work on a personalised basis and we work “upstream.” This means that, instead of working on the symptoms, we look at the body as an integrated whole and as a system, to identify what may be contributing to the condition in the first place – the underlying root cause. It’s called “functional” because we look at what is not functioning optimally in your body and address that, and it’s called “lifestyle” because how you live your life from movement or exercise, to sleep, stress, mindset or community, all play a role in your physical health.


Happy women I've worked with

“It’s been pretty amazing”


I’ve lost a stone and I can see a difference in the size of my stomach, arms, face and more so in my legs. My skin is also clearer and less congested. I feel really good. In control of what I eat. Not binging on sweet snacks on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon or evenings, because I’m bored or think I’m feeling hungry.​I think the food we used to have was quite bland pre lock down. I’m a big foodie so do enjoy food. My whole eating process has changed. Just wanted to say a big thank you. It’s been pretty amazing.


“Go For It”


I have lost 11 lbs, and clothes feel loser, and flabby bits appear firmer! My eczema flare ups have significantly reduced. My energy levels have increased, and no more sofa snoozes.I had tried so many diets which along with exercise had worked in the past. Also lockdown has built up bad habits.If you've tried lots of different fad diets with less and less results what you learn with the Balance Reset Method will help you change what and how you eat and you see the results which feel more sustainable.Veronica is on hand to advise and motivate you to keep going, providing solutions to remove some of the parts of life that get in the way of keeping focussed.


“I have a lot more energy, and am feeling healthier and more alive than I have been in years”


I feel a lot more relaxed generally, and specifically around food: I know what to eat in order to truly nourish myself, I don’t go hungry and – most importantly – I have a lot more energy, and am feeling healthier and more alive than I have been in years. Even a holiday with my family of hungry boys didn’t dent the peace of mind I had.To my husband’s surprise and my own delight (because I always worry about this), I didn’t put on a single ounce in 2 weeks, despite doing little more than some very gentle exercise and a lot of relaxing! I am feeling more confident, my approach to work has changed for the better (and calmer), and I am committed to making time for myself, because I now know how much it benefits me as well as my whole family. It has been an absolutely amazing journey of transformation.


“My self esteem is improved and I’m walking my talk at work”


I was really surprised by what I learnt (I slightly thought I knew it all). Yes it took commitment but it didn’t take will power. When I started eating properly my food urges subsided and I found I was able to be much more balanced in my choices. I have lost 16lbs so far, I have ‘relapsed’ a couple of times, and been able to easily get back on track without the usual beating myself up and half a loaf of bread to go with it.My self esteem is improved and I’m walking my talk at work. The biggest change is I don’t wake up in the morning thinking ‘today I’ll be good, today I’ll make a start’ because I am already doing it and it is working.

“You have transformed my energy”


Working with you on my health last year was one of the top highlights of my year. You have transformed my energy and my life and you have set me up for a healthy and energetic next phase of my life – so a huge thank you!


“I have exceeded all expectations”


Couldn’t have done it without your help and encouragement. In spite of some blips and struggles initially, I have to admit that I have enjoyed taking care of what I was eating and totally see the benefits in that. The results of the reduction in my insulin dosage, my waistline and increased in energy levels are incredible. I cannot ignore the good it has done and have made an informed choice of continuing to the best of my ability. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for re-educating me and for giving me the opportunity to better my wellbeing.
