Who we are

Hello, and thank you for visiting! This blog is run by Annabel Treshansky and its address is: http://www.geeksdiet.com. Please use the contact form to get in touch for any reason.


Everyone is different, and descriptions of personal experiences with a diet or fitness programme on this website are no guarantee of the success or failure of that same diet or fitness programme for anyone else.

As stated in my welcome page, I am not a dietitian, doctor or nutritionist, and I am not dispensing qualified medical advice.

Suggestions given on this website are intended purely for motivational and entertainment purposes, and should not be taken as a substitute for medical advice. Professional medical advice is recommended before beginning any kind of diet or exercise programme.  

Third Party Links and Advertising

This website may host advertising provided through third party advertisers, Amazon and Google, and links to third party websites.

Links to third party websites may be monetized, on a varying basis, by a third party service called Sovrn (formerly known as Viglink). More information about Sovrn can be found here: https://www.viglink.com/legal/consumer-disclosure/

The operators of this website can not be held responsible for the content of third party websites, third party advertising, or for any arrangements made between visitors to this website and linked websites or third party advertisers.

The appearance of an advert on this website does not imply an endorsement of the product or service advertised, unless that is specifically stated in the text of the blog post or page.  


What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

I do not collect personally identifiable information from my visitors, unless they choose to send it to me. All messages sent via the contact form are periodically deleted from the admin section of the website, and can also be deleted upon request.

As part of this website’s third party advertising programs, third parties may be placing and reading cookies on users’ browsers, or using web beacons to collect information, including your IP address, in the course of ads being served on the website, to personalise their advertising content and measure its effectiveness.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

Data sharing options in the Google Analytics account for this website are turned off.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

My Statcounter website statistics program does not store visitor statistics beyond the most recent 500 page loads, except as aggregated data.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
