NUVI was founded by two medical doctors who are passionate about empowering and supporting people who are facing challenges with stubborn weight, obesity or lifestyle-related conditions such as prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
The founders are husband and wife team Dr Amanda and Dr Paul who bring their expertise to the programme as Medical Doctors with a specialist interest in Lifestyle Medicine.
They come equipped with the knowledge and real-world clinical and coaching experience from both the UK and New Zealand to really empower people to lose weight and also reverse prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
The name NUVI represents what we do with a dual meaning: firstly, it means ‘new beginnings’ and secondly it combines the words nutrition and vitality as this is what we help people navigate.
Dr Amanda & Dr Paul also bring their knowledge and first-hand experience of reversing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes through lifestyle from their time working in the UK and New Zealand.
At NUVI, we understand why weight challenges, obesity, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are difficult to manage by yourself. We are here to help you quickly and more easily cut through the overwhelming, confusing and often conflicting information to get faster and more sustainable health benefits with our professional and trusted programme. Making long-term lifestyle changes isn’t always as easy as it sounds, which is why our 12-week online Impact Programme breaks each step of the process down into a much simpler approach. This helps you put into action healthier habits that will improve your health more easily. Our programme provides you with help and support from expert medical and nutritional professionals to help you take charge of your health to live happier and with more energy.

Members Community Support System
Community is a form of medicine, and we know first-hand that great things happen more easily, and for longer, together.
Husband and wife team Dr Paul Baker and Dr Amanda Porch have been focussing on lifestyle as a form of medicine for a number of years now. Their passion for treating these conditions more naturally and holistically was further fuelled during their time living and working as Medical Doctors in New Zealand.
Dr Paul and Dr Amanda realised and appreciate that the greatest overall health and life benefits come from a lifestyle-based approach to reversing and preventing conditions where possible, rather than covering over the cracks as they appear or overtreating with pills, injections or surgery.
Taking their experience from New Zealand, together they founded NUVI on their return back to the UK in 2019 to help those affected by weight gain, obesity, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes get access to high quality and effective lifestyle support.
