Joe Alvarez BSc
I am a Nutritionist and Trainee Dietitian who mainly works with those looking to improve their gastrointestinal health as well as those who wish to lose weight. Sessions are conducted on Skype or over the phone in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you.
I will send you a questionnaire prior to our session to gain a greater understanding about you and your lifestyle. In addition, I will ask you to complete a food diary which will help me to assess your overall diet and I will then be able to come up with a personalised diet plan that will work best for you.
I can help you develop a personalised diet plan that will ensure you are still getting all the nutrients that are needed for you to be healthy, whilst supporting any concerns you may have. From personal experience I understand my clients needs and I know how to provide the most effective results. Please see below for contract and sessions details.
I tend not to focus on calorie counting as I don't think this is efficient. My main goal when working with those who are looking to lose weight is to improve the diet generally by decreasing fat and sugar intake and increasing fruit and vegetable intake, and this is the main focus of the sessions. I also discuss general lifestyle factors including physical activity. My sessions are personalised to you and I can fit around your plans. There doesn't have to be a specific time limit for when sessions are completed if this doesn't suit you. For a description of sessions please see the list below.
I also work with people who feel they need to consume a healthier diet for example increasing fruit and vegetable intake, but don't know how to do this. I can work with you to develop personalised techniques around your lifestyle that will work for you and your family. Please see the price list below for more information on sessions or do not hesitate to contact me.
