Jacquie Lavin

Not surprisingly, as a nutritionist I like good food, good wine, good friends, good weather, a bit of running and happy days!

Head of Nutrition and Research at Slimming World since 1998. I lead a team that provides nutrition advice to keep Slimming World at the forefront of weight management, developing partnerships with the public health sector and co-ordinating internal and external weight management research.

As well as providing an internal resource to Slimming World in the areas of nutrition, health and physical activity, I contribute to the media commenting on nutrition and weight loss.

I'm a member of the Association for the Study of Obesity, the Nutrition Society, the British Feeding and Drinking Group and the Nutritionists in Industry Group.
