I've been lucky enough to live and work in many countries and so have developed an understanding of how different people and different cultures cope with nutritional challenges. Diet is widely considered the single most important behavioural risk factor that, when improved, can enhance the health, wellbeing and longevity of individuals. 

Many of the western world's leading chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease,
Type II diabetes and elevated blood pressure amongst others, are due to poor lifestyle
behaviours and poor nutrition.  Excess intake of energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods
combined with decreasing physical activity have combined to see a rapid increase in overweight and obesity and leading chronic diseases.

Thankfully, a large body of evidence now shows that healthy eating patterns and
regular physical activity can help reduce the risk of chronic disease and help people
achieve and maintain good health.

With post graduate qualifications in nutrition and psychology my aim is to help you manage your own challenges with sound advice formed from the most recent nutrition research.  I'm dedicated to keeping my knowledge in the area of health through nutrition as up to date as possible so that you can continue with your own life pursuits fit and healthy for the long run.
