The struggle is real...

you're starting to notice changes to your body...

that stubborn weight, slumps of energy, feeling bloated more often, and a good nights sleep seems impossible.

Everything you try seems to either not work, or is such an effort.

It's sucking the joy out of life.

I know you’re confused, you feel like you’ve never had a problem until now, and you’re not sure what else to do.

You may feel that you’ve lost your way.

You’ve tried many things…fasting, changing up the macros, exercise... but it just makes you feel more frustrated and exhausted, as the results just aren’t coming through.

There also might be those achy joints, getting hotter, brain fog (where did I put the keys?), and the list seems to go on.

How bloody frustrating!!

The amount of messages out there these days just creates more confusion of what you should be doing.

You don't have time to try and work it out, and the stuff you've tried doesn't work anyway.

You want a solution that is clear, gets results, and is realistic to achieve…not restrictive and alienates you from everyone else.

I mean, we all love some carbs and a glass of wine right?  

Hi! I'm Mel

...and I am in perimenopause.

Saying that sounds like some kind of confessional, or some kind of club...that isn't particularly cool (in fact, it's often

I am determined to make this stage of life one to remember...for good reasons, not overshadowed by those annoying symptoms.

As a nutritionist, I feel priviledged to have helped hundreds of women who are also at this stage of life to navigate what that means and how to feel better so they can start living a fuller life.

I can tell is possible to feel great again.

There's no time for feeling frumpy...there's still way too much fun stuff to do!

So lets get to it :)

The Perimenopause Plate program


Is tailored to addressing the changes required at this stage of life to get results.

Given that most dietary advice out there has either been researched in men, or is aimed at the general population, no wonder it doesn't work.

We need something specific.

The program includes info on habit change science, since this is required for lasting success alongside the right information.

It also includes accountability - these are the gems that make us show up and take action.

Ever felt like "I know what I need to do but I just don't do it"? This program will give you tools so  you can do it and continue to do it!

Through working with over one hundred in women in perimenopause, I had to find a more efficient way to help more women feel fantastic, and give them the support they need...this is why Fabulous Forties was born.

Live weekly lessons in my Zoom room

I will be here for you live each week. That way you can clarify things as we go, and I can add in the extra bits of info you need from me.

And don't worry if you can't watch in real-time, the sessions will be recorded for you to view in your own time (and you have a lifetime access!).

Weekly Q & A sessions (live)

When you've tried implementing the information but it's still not working for you...ask away and I can help troubleshoot for you.

I will be here for you each week to answer any questions, and if you can't attend live, you can pre-submit your questions and the answer will be recorded for you.

A virtual goodie bag  (includes perimenopause recipes, a shopping list my recommended products)

This makes meal planning and shopping a breeze.

No more need to read those labels and second guess which thing to choose - just go for the ones I've done the hard work and analysed for you.

Perimenopause supplements guide


The right vitamins & minerals can be a game changer for many. It's great to start with food, but adding the right supplement can uplevel the results you receive. 

This guide will help you determine which ones are for you.

Perhaps you're thinking

I don’t have time

Each week you will learn something so you can start feeling better…if you don’t have time to attend live, it will be recorded for you to watch in your own time.

I tried everything...this will be no different

There are specific strategies that have to be followed at this age to get results. The same old, cookie cutter, latest internet crazes won’t work as they are aimed at the general public. I have taken the research specific to perimenopausal women to draw out what gets results at this age.

I don’t have the money…

What could you do if you had more energy, had a clear plan of action to follow and reduced symptoms so they weren’t such a bother?

It’s all about priorities…think about how important your health is and maybe you can sacrifice spending on other less important things for this month.

The symptoms will go away soon anyway...

Sorry, but I have news for you...symptoms can last from perimenopause and continue once you have reached menopause. 

It is important to take action now for not only your own health, but also your sanity.

So are you ready to stop feeling average & start feeling fabulous?
