No more ridiculous diets
You've done the extreme, all-or-nothing approaches and know they don't work, let us show you a sustainable way to achieve the health and fitness transformation you've always dreamed of.
I was over consuming and by achieving the habits set I managed to change my body for the better within 8 weeks. I now have so much more knowledge and am confident I can lose more weight.
The help and knowledge about nutrition planning and life really helped. I certainly learned a lot of new knowledge about calorie intake and protein requirements
Went from puffy to buffy, so pleased with the progress on my body comp, my overall strength and performance gains. It's the first time I’ve not had a body comp hang up for as long as I can remember
The Facts Don't Lie, Lockdown 3.0 took it's toll...
The last 12 months have felt like Groundhog Day for most.
With boredom/stress eating at an all-time high. No gyms or offices to get to. It's been easy to put our health and fitness last.
As a result, our physical AND mental health has suffered.
It's time to put you first and take control.

We Know How You Feel Because We've Been There Too...
FOUNDER / HEAD COACH
I've been where you are now. I used to vary between 'eating clean' and being miserable to eating everything in sight and still being miserable. I had no balance with my food, no energy, and a terrible relationship with eating.
When I was 16, I lost my dad to heart disease. This was because he was overweight, over-stressed, had a terrible relationship with food and didn't understand how to spin all of life's plates. From that point, I dedicated my life to help make sure this doesn't happen to others.
I'm not about chicken and rice, endless Tupperware boxes and meal-prepping your entire week. I love beer, cheesecake, bbq food and believe your best life is achieved when you know how to enjoy all of these and still look good naked.
As a Certified Nutritionist and Founder of Next Step Nutrition, I have helped many people just like you improve their relationship with food, look good naked, and keep these results for life.
I've also presented at businesses like BBC Leeds, pWc, Barclays, Org3D and West Yorkshire Police.
You can have the best of both worlds, you just need to understand how.
I’ve struggled on and off with my weight for most of my life. Since the age of 13 I’ve been aware of my size. I’m 34, now… That’s over 20 years of struggling.
I used to LOVE WWE (WWF at the time) and would spend my Friday nights watching Walker Texas Ranger and Raw. Do you know what else I’d do whilst watching TV? Snack. Crisps, chocolates, biscuits. My snacking habit started then. I remember coming home from school and hiding chocolate bars in my underwear drawer.
Thus began the secret eating and my ‘bad’ relationship with food. I realised 5 or 6 years ago that food became my crutch as a young boy. When I was bullied at school I would turn to food as comfort. That trend continued for years and still rears its ugly head now and again. Habits like the ones above are hard to break. Any bad habit is hard to break.
Luckily, I fell in love with exercise in my early 20’s and that love forced me to eat better. At least I thought it was better. At 26/27 I was in the best shape I’d ever been in up to that point. I'd been coaching for a couple of years and opened my own gym. I was mainly eating low carb, high fat and plenty of protein. But I was moody and restricting any foods I considered ‘bad’. I would rely on cheat days to have the foods I wanted to eat. The yo-yo cycle continued for the next 5 years.
Then – in 2017, I reached out to Jonny Landels and Next Step Nutrition.
He coached me using a flexible dieting protocol. I could pretty much eat what I wanted and still lose weight, perform and train well, and not feel like I was restricting myself or leaning on food as a crutch. My major problems come from disordered eating and sleeping. As a gigging musician and gym owner, late nights would often run into early mornings. Lack of routine and poor sleeping habits lead to poor choices, but I’m much better at managing it all now.
My breakthrough led me to sign up to the same nutrition certification as Jonny. I learned so much about evidence-based nutrition and coaching. I qualified as a certified nutritionist in 2018 through MacNutritionUni. I’d recommend that course to anybody. Since then I’ve coached clients using different methods (suited to the individual) such as calorie-counting, portion control, habit and behaviour coaching, and weekly check-ins. I’ve witnessed frustration, crying with clients on the phone, massive breakthroughs, and realizations that are powerful enough to help people make lasting changes.
You see, it’s not enough to teach someone how to lose weight. The person we're helping has to have a big enough reason that they make lasting changes through deep exploration of their struggles. Once we know what drives them to make changes, we don’t dwell on it and keep revisiting it. We formulate a strategy, put a system or systems in place, and then we execute.
The most important element of any plan is coaching. It’s being there for your client to help, to hold them accountable, to listen, empathise, and meet them where they are, week to week. I’m lucky to have that kind of relationship with my coach.
Maybe you're like me?
You want to eat well, but when you’re stressed and tired, you end up eating ALLLL the calories to relieve some of that stress. You reach for high-reward foods and end up overeating. The next thing you know, it’s 1 am and you need to be up at 6. And the cycle continues. Sound familiar?

These Men Tried Other Products, Programs And Potions That Didn't Work, Then They Came To Us
We know that more than ever there are coaches, products, diets, pills and more that promise the world. Hear from a selection of our clients about why they chose Next Step Nutrition for their Health & Fitness Transformation
Brad Bennett - Lost Over 20kgs
Before working with Next Step Nutrition, I was desperate to find consistency and balance with knowledge regarding my food and exercise.
In the time working with them I've achieved 20kgs of weight loss and a shift of focus to more performance and task orientated goals which I’m really enjoying. Including upcoming running events.
My self-confidence has massively improved and many things that I didn’t think I used to be able to I now do. I have so little less excuses.
They have worked with me to give me the confidence, knowledge and facts about nutrition and helped me get on the path to where I want to be. Without them, I’d still be stuck in the crazy cycle I was.
Laban Cook - Lost 20kgs & Counting
Before working with Next Step Nutrition, I struggled maintaining any weight loss.
It was embarrassing being overweight. It was also embarrassing to lose weight multiple times only to gain it back in six months or a year.
While working with NSN, I improved my relationship with food and was able to build many small habits that help me enjoy food while maintaining a calorie deficit over time.
I have lost over 40 pounds over twelve months while still enjoying a whole variety of foods. I have built habits that include exercising 4 days per week and focusing on workout enjoyment, increased protein intake, drinking more water, increasing my average daily step count from 8,500 last year to 11,500 this year.
If you're like me and have spent years overweight or unable to maintain weight loss, focusing on what the scales say won't help you or make you feel any better. Jumping onto quick fix fads or 8 week extreme diets will not address the underlying issues.
Instead, work with NSN to develop a healthy mindset, identify and address the psychological barriers that sabotage you, and build many small healthy habits that accumulate over time to lose weight and keep it off. I will finish this year as a thin, vibrant, healthy person for the first time in over twenty years.
Ben Landels - Lost Over 8kgs
I'm an avid socialite with a busy job who always has to burn the candle at both ends. I love food, drink (the alcoholic kind) and going out with friends too much. My approach to managing a very average diet has always been to try and 'out-exercise' it. I failed at this.
I wanted to lose weight and tone up whilst improving strength and fitness in the gym. To do this without having to sacrificing the social lifestyle.
My brother runs NSN and I'd always had bits and pieces of advice but felt it was time to get some real accountability and go all in. I knew going with Jonny was a no brainer because I see first hand how much he loves his craft and dedicates time, effort and money to continue developing his knowledge and expertise! In addition to being a great personable guy who appreciates the need for a "flexible dieting" approach to match your individual lifestyle choices.
Friends would always would ask me- "how the hell have you managed to lose weight whilst still going out all the time eating and drinking!?" And that's the biggest single learning for me. And I managed to lose c.20 pounds over a 6 month period along the way.
I learnt about the importance of calories, weighing and measuring portion sizes (you'll be surprised/heartbroken!), macronutrient priorities (I wasn't eating enough protein!) and the fact that most people do not understand what or how much they are eating. I learnt a number of techniques that allowed me to "balance" my diet around key social and work events that work for my busy lifestyle.
I also have a perennial sweet tooth (i.e. "fat b*stard") so learning tricks of the trade to fulfil that craving without blowing cals was awesome ;-) Along with some other good dietary and recipe ideas.
I feel great about moving forwards. Through NSN and Jonny I have been equipped with a wealth of knowledge about food and different techniques & levers that allow me to manage a busy lifestyle, whilst still doing (and eating/drinking!) all the things I want.
Will you give me a meal plan?
No, we don't believe in meal plans because you want to eat the food you want, not what we think you should. You'll get recipes, example meal plans and help sheets to guide your choices.
Do I need a gym membership?
Nope! If you can't reach the gym or don't want to go to one, you don't have to.
We'll show you how to drop fat and keep it off doing what you enjoy!
How does it work again?
We work with you 1-1 to give you bespoke nutrition advice, strategies, cue cards and more so you can drop fat, tone up and reach your goals without giving up your favourite foods.
We'll also help you develop the mindset, the behaviours, and habits so you can stay that way, for good.
Will I get workouts?
If you want them, yes! We can offer a bespoke training program alongside on our £67/week model
Is there direct contact?
Yep! Through the app you can message your coach any questions and they will reply in less than one working day (usually an hour or less unless it's the weekend!)
Do I have to track calories?
We will find what works best for you. That may be tracking, it may not be. We can work either way and we're not coaches who will just tell you calories to track and then leave you alone!
