Well now you can inside my 4-month, comprehensive, sustainable, tried and tested doctor-led method.
Learn why slowly gaining weight doesn’t have to be a life sentence, and how to finally take control of your health .
Shakes & meal kits
Religiously weighing foods & reading labels
Intense workouts 5 days /week
Deprivation of favourite foods
Trying every fad diet out there!
I followed traditional weight loss advice (low fat, high wholegrain, calorie burning, calorie restriction) to the letter! It was what I was taught at Medical School in the half day nutrition training I got and again in my Nutrition Diploma.
I remember one of my lowest points as a die hard foodie was denying myself fabulous tapas in Barcelona because I had to have my health shake instead- brainwashed into thinking I could miraculously lose weight like this!
And I did lose weight for a bit, but slowly, for a multitude of reasons I didn’t compute back then, the weight started creeping back on. Without even realising, I found myself at my heaviest ever weight of 85 kilos (13 stones) this time balancing a demanding career as a full-time G.P. and newly single mother. I had also developed health niggles like acidity, plantar fasciitis, raised bad cholesterol, painful periods, acne and back pain by then too.
Not only that, as a deeply thinking and caring doc, I was frustrated with seeing more and more prescriptions being used to fix long-term chronic conditions like diabetes, obesity, polycystic ovaries, thyroid imbalance and exhaustion.
I wanted to go deeper for my patients and myself, beyond my medical school education and figure out the secret to lasting weight loss (without living off cauliflower crust pizza for the rest of my life) !
But more importantly I wanted better long-term health.
This programme is only for women (bless us!), but here is a success story from the other sex!

“Reversed my pre-diabetes & lowered my cholesterol”
When I met Dr Ash, she infected me with a zeal and enthusiasm to take back control of my personal health journey. I was fatigued all the time, unhappy with my body and presenting signs of pre-diabetes. Through her guidance, I embraced a revitalised approach to nutrition, sleep and exercise. My lifestyle changed and I lost around 18 kg healthily, cooked recipes using food I had never done before, reversed my pre-diabetes and lowered my cholesterol, became more mindful about what my body needs and most importantly improved my mental health. My children also benefited through better meals and a happier dad with loads more energy to.
I want you to know that it’s not your fault that calorie counting, killing yourself in the gym & depriving yourself of your favourite foods hasn’t worked for you.
I want you to stop feeling how I did for 20 years.
This outdated calories in calories out theory is literally designed to keep you thinking this way (AND keep you overweight, too). As a doctor, personal trainer and certified nutritionist, I know that the human body is so much more complex than a simple Energy Mismatch. As a mother & Masterchef I also know the true pleasure & nutrition food can give so depriving yourself of that is just silly.
As an ex-overweight woman that was big most of her life
I knew how people looked at me as
After working with me inside of my Bespoke Group Health Program you’ll be educated on;
What, how & when to eat as well as how to enjoy your favourite foods without sabotaging your long-term health
How it is not calories in, calories out that causes weight loss, moreso the relationship between insulin and other hormones, cortisol & your gut microbiome
How sometimes doing less but better exercise can speed up results
Why your environment, sleep & stress are just as important as what you eat when it comes to weight loss
What contributes to chronic illnesses & how you can stop them from developing 20 years down the line

“It wasn’t easy with twins but she got me hooked on fasting and working on my sleep “
I was Ash’s case study for her nutrition qualification in 2008. She had been taught that it was all about calories and she put me on a low fat low calorie diet. It worked and I went from a size 16 to a size 8 in 6 months and felt great. The weight crept back though and when I found myself big again after having twins I had a chat with Ash. She explained that what she had been taught back then was wrong and that there was so much more to health than calories. It wasn’t easy with twins but she got me hooked on fasting and working on my sleep and relaxation. The weight is now coming off slower but I feel better and happier and that as mum was the most important thing.
They’re wondering how much weight they can lose and how fast and boy do I remember the urgency of that feeling. Just the mere thought of Summer looming and swimsuit season used to give me palpitations!
But as they start my holistic weight loss programme, they quickly learn that it’s more about understanding their body and the factors that contribute to weight gain. They don’t mind that weight loss may take a touch longer knowing it will be permanent this time.
If you’ve made it this far, you already know how life-changing the right weight loss program could be for you. Like me you’ve tried them all and wondering why this one is different? Read on to get to the juicy bits!
Tracey Caiger 54 years, Health Care Assistant
Within a month my blood pressure started to drop andI lost 4 kilos.
I met Ashvy at work where she was the doc and I was the Health Care Assistant. One day I was moaning about being fat and tired. She pitched in with her beaming smile ‘babes, you know this isn’t your fault right? I used to be big too, and no one helped me… let me give you some pointers’. She pulled out a piece of paper and wrote down a few websites that discussed low carb and fasting. I didn’t think it could really be as simple as that, but it was. When I was a bit lost I texted Ashvy and she always had a solution up her sleeve. Within a month my blood pressure started to drop andI lost 4 kilos. This doctor is a miracle worker!

My programme is designed from a wealth of knowledge including a 20+ year medical career, thousands of hours spent exploring alternative medicine, training in nutrition and exercise plus my own experience of being stuck in an oppressive weight loss cycle of deprivation and recurring weight gain. It’ll be my mission to leave you newly educated, refreshed and fully capable of ignoring the B.S. (Bullsh*t)
These are just some of the unlikely things I discovered over 20 years that could be causing you to gain weight

Applying Functional Medicine to Clinical Practice (In English….. Read below)
Each person is a unique individual and so it would be wrong of me to promise everyone the same results. I learned that through Functional Medicine and it’s this amazing way of ‘doctoring’ that has helped me cure and heal so many. What I am sure of is that inside of this program you’ll start to see the weight come off and you’ll feel much better, too.
You will feel more empowered to make the correct choices not just with food but with all aspects of your current and future health. No more losing time, waiting for six months to a year for a routine N.H.S. check-up, let alone a fully customized weight loss and wellness plan.

After all, you’re a busy woman balancing a career, child rearing, elder care – all on top of trying to maintain your weight, have great energy all day and feel sexy, too.
But let me ask you, why does it have to be inevitable that you’ll gain weight and eventually become ill with a chronic disease or something worse, like cancer or heart disease?
Right now, you’re still dealing with guilt and shame. You’re more than ready for a change, but you want to work with someone experienced, credible and compassionate.
Right now you might be going through some of the following:
You feel like your health is getting away from you
You’re slowly gaining weight and accepting chronic disease as inevitable
You feel like you’re at the mercy of long waitlists without knowing how to manage your own health
You still haven’t realized that self-care needs to be your #1 priority.
you’ll learn how to truly become the master of your own health
(and lose weight too.)

The mental health of the programme is uniquely tailored towards long term weight loss and sustainable good health. I welcome a guest expert into the program to discuss managing stress, how it affects eating habits and I’ll also share my favourite affirmations and mantras to get through those more challenging moments on your journey.
If you’ve made it this far, you’re obviously really keen (yay!) and this must have been playing on your mind for a long time. I have a feeling you must have resonated with some of what I have said.
But I also get the hesitation; it’s a big investment in time, energy and money. It’s cool… I’ve still got you. I’m an empath at heart and really just wanna help, so book a call anyway and let me see if I can point you in the right direction.
If this isn’t the right time for you, I respect that, but please don’t just stay stuck… . Don’t give up on yourself, you deserve to feel and look great, you can absolutely do this. If you’re not ready to make the invesment of time, energy and money to work with me now; follow me on social media where i’ll give way as much as i can to stay a true medical friend and guide for you now and in the future.
