About Marta’s Personalised Nutrition Programme
There are four key pillars in our approach to wellbeing: sleep, hydration, nutrition and exercise. We can talk to you about what a nutritional programme could look like, if you feel this is the right step for you. Our packages concentrate on individual requirements and incremental changes that can be easily incorporated into your diet and daily routines.
We live the life we promote and offer ideas that we have tested ourselves. What we offer isn’t an unreachable idea of perfection. We know how busy life can be, so we offer a flexible approach that meets your needs and fits in with your schedule. All consultations are booked separately from the stays at our retreat.
Marta as a Nutrition Specialist
In my late twenties, I had a severe accident, which took me out of action for three months. That incident gave me some precious time to establish what is important. It helped me re-evaluate my situation, find a balance between my work and personal life, and choose a new direction. I changed careers, moved out of a big city and started living a healthier slower life. I focused on the nutrition aspects of cooking as a hobby and continued with my physical exercise.
By now, I have completed a master’s in Sports and Exercise Nutrition to solidify my knowledge and I run my own business providing nutrition and healthy living advice.
I will support you in your search for a balanced diet specific to your body’s needs, a lifestyle that will help you feel better about yourself and have more energy to face the world. It will be up to you to make the changes, but I will provide you with science-based guidance, support and encouragement to make the changes sustainable and long-lasting.
Healthy Living Programme
The healthy living programme is the application of nutrition science in promoting health, performance, well-being and individual care. It covers four areas: sleep, hydration, nutrition and physical activity. As a rule of thumb, I recommend you plan on at least 3 months of engagement.
The first step is for me to listen, take time and create the space to help you recognise what your body needs so that you can decide on goals you would like to achieve. My packages concentrate on individual requirements and incremental changes incorporated through monthly consultations and weekly feedback sessions.
The operating model of the healthy living programme
My programme’s operating model is based on the Model and Process for Nutrition and Dietetic Practice. This realistic approach resonates with me as I have years of experience in project and programme management. The iterative nature of implementing change and improvements, Plan → Do → Check → Act, can be traced back to the XVII century science; therefore, it perfectly combines science with the application of continuous improvement.
Six simple steps that I follow start with initial consultation, where through a food diary, questionnaire and conversations, I will capture factors covering the ABCD (Anthropometry, Biochemistry, Clinical, Dietary, Environmental, Functional). I will then analyse your inputs to create a PASS (Problem, Aetiology, Signs and Symptoms) and formulate a nutrition diagnosis.
Your Healthy Living Goals
The initial consultation will enable me to work with you on a nutrition outcome and SMART goals spread across the duration of the programme. Throughout the implementation, I will maintain regular communications, support you with learning materials such as leaflets, videos, websites and books, establish your drivers for behavioural change and encourage you to keep up the work to achieve your goals. I will monitor your progress and review any feedback so that appropriate adjustments can be made.
Tailored Content of The Healthy Living Programme
The programme can also be tailored to cover subjects that are of particular interest to you. The sessions can focus on anything from meal planning to sports nutrition. We can look at what a balanced diet means to you and how it can be impacted by your particular health conditions and circumstances. We could analyse your own habits, explore food sources and benefits of local or seasonal produce, and understand food labels. I can also work with you on performance nutrition, illness prevention and individualised training diet for endurance, weight or team sports.
At the end of the programme, we will reflect on the journey, capture your success and any future ‘better-ifs’. I will provide you with a final assessment and stay in touch, should you need further support.
The Programme Delivery Mode
Consultations can be delivered virtually via Microsoft Teams (or other platforms) or face-to-face. Each long session can last from 60 to 90 min depending on your need and the subject covered. A series of shorter weekly 10-15 minute touch points will be put in place over the course of the contract to allow time for feedback and adjustments to recommendations.

We’re a retreat with a difference. There are no jam-packed schedules here. Instead, we focus on what makes us all feel good: food, nature and rest.
As all our bodies are unique, so are the nutritional requirements we each need, which is why we will work with you to create a lifestyle and habits that support you in your life.
As the saying goes, we are what we eat, which is one of the reasons we are so passionate about inspiring and supporting businesses that work with us to help their people join us in eating in a way that supports their goals, needs and lifestyle.
