The science of nutrition is working out how to optimise the way our bodies work through healthy attitudes and approaches to food, what we eat and working out exactly what we as individuals need to be healthy. Nutritionists will assess, monitor and modify the current diet of an individual to tailor and adapt their eating habits and patterns to better suit their personal requirements.
Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and gastrointestinal disease can be addressed with dietary correction .
Sporting performance can also be maximised through tailor made diet plans and carefully controlled tapering and carb loading.
As a qualified nutritionist I recognise that every person is unique and therefore has an individual set of dietary requirements. It is my job to establish whether or not an individual’s diet is right for their current state of health. I can then formulate a personalised programme to ensure that the diet addresses any nutritional deficiencies and contains all of the essential components.
