Silvia Fonda comes from a background where love of cooking and good food has been an integral part of her upbringing. After spending over twenty years working in the finance sector and as a career advisor, she decided to formalise her knowledge of nutrition by adding a more scientific approach. This led her to achieving her BSc in Nutritional Therapy at the University of Westminster. Following her degree, she has attended several courses to ensure that her knowledge of nutrition is up to date and closely follows new scientific research involving nutrition and health. She has also completed training as a metabolic balance® coach and in personalised sports nutrition.
She is fully insured and is a member of The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT: www.bant.org.uk), as well as being member of the International Society of Sport Nutrition (ISSN). Silvia is also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC: www.cnhc.org.uk), the only register for Nutritional Therapy recognised by the Department of Health. Furthermore she is on the ICO register and complies with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Silvia’s nutritional approach is all about designing a personalised programme which takes you from your present situation to where you want to be. This is done by educating you at every step by explaining how your current diet and lifestyle may be contributing to your health concerns.
Silvia has also a keen interest on sport nutrition and has recently designed sport nutrition packages aimed to both recreational athletes and professional sports people. The aim of sport nutrition is to assist individuals to optimise performance as well as support recovery from training and injury.
Silvia is fluent in Italian and happy to conduct consultations in Italian.

I am passionate about nutrition and how small but consistent changes in the diet and lifestyle can have a beneficial effect to so many health complaints. This is why I don't believe in strict diets, but rather aim to provide you with strategies for life which will not leave you starving.
This is what one of my client had to say: "I have always tried to eat healthy, but I felt I needed some professional advice to help me maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Each consultation with Silvia Fonda (Nutri Active) was relaxed but well structured. Silvia is clearly a professional in her field. By the end of my programme I had the information and tools needed to pursue a life of health and vitality". R.L. - Tooting, London
I am also interested in women's health and provide general advice regarding healthy eating.
Silvia also offers corporate packages which include themed workshops on topics such as stress at work and personal health assessments for employees at a reduced corporate rate. Please contact me to discuss your company's requirements.
