About me

I am a Registered Nutritionist with extensive experience in weight loss and clinical nutrition.I run two very successful clinics one in Edinburgh and one in Italy.

During my career as nutritionist and academic I became particularly interested on how good nutrition during early years can affect health and behaviour in both childhood and adulthood and how optimal nutrition can help disease recovery and improve health and wellbeing.

My experience in clinical nutrition research and my years of private practice in Italy and in Edinburgh have given me a deep understanding and knowledge on how optimal nutrition is affected during serious health conditions and how a personalised nutritional plan should be designed to speed up recovery and to improve the health status.

I have also extensive experience on Weight Loss Managment; I have helped many clients who never managed to lose weight with any diet, to achieve their weight goal and to keep it off. Before I give any dietary plan I assess the nutritional status, metabolism, fat mass, fat free mass and cellular integrity with the help of the most advance technology in the nutrition field (Bioelectrical Impedance RJL Analyser http://www.rjlsystems.com/ ). These measures give me the opportunity to understand where the excess weight is coming from (excess water , fat, low metabolism) allowing me to design a successful personalised weight loss plan. That is the key to my weight loss programme success!

I have also extensive experience in Sport Nutrition and I am the official nutritionist of my hometown agonistic swimming club. I have helped many athletes to optimise their performance, recovery, and speed and muscle strength.

I offer I wide range of services for all ages and situations. I follow a science based approach to create a tailored eating and life style plan.
