Description

I have been a dietitian for over 25 years and during my practice, I have provided nutritional counselling for various medical conditions in a hospital setting and in private practice. I strongly feel that weight management is an important health issue as it can prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. It is never too late to change your food habits. Fad diets may help you lose weight initially but they are not sustainable longterm. I will guide you to follow easy and practical meal plans to achieve a healthy weight without 'chronic dieting'.
