A consummate healthy foodie, Judy Davie founded The Food Coach, a personal-training service in healthy eating, in 2001.
Judy Davie recognised that, despite the literature available on nutrition, people were increasingly confused about what they should eat, and they lacked valuable cooking skills. A self-trained cook, Judy has drawn on the skills of others to provide her comprehensive website on food and nutrition.
She is passionate about inspiring people to improve their eating habits and learn that healthy food does taste great and can be fun!
Author and co-author of four books: The Food Coach, Read the Label, Star Foods and The Greengrocer’s Diet, Judy has also written for popular magazines including Woman’s Day, Body + Soul, and Prevention. She has contributed regularly on radio and TV and is an enthusiastic and engaging presenter to corporate and community groups.
In 2015 after the release of her latest book The Greengrocer’s Diet, she developed and launched a community weight loss program in Wagga Wagga called 'Lighten Up Wagga' and plans to develop the model to other communities on a larger scale.
The Food Coach website hosts a collaboration of articles written by health professional across Australia, and also contains weight management assessment tools, over 1200 healthy recipes, 100 + healthy cooking videos, and information of over 600 popular – and less well known - ingredients which we use today.
