Ro Huntriss (Specialist Dietitian): BSc (Hons), PGDip, MSc, MClinRes, RD
"If you have nutrition or health goals, I can help you to achieve them. I have had incredible results with so many of my clients and I want to do the same for you. I have two master's degrees in related subjects and a wealth of experience working with a variety of patients, achieving their goals."
I'm a UK Registered Dietitian with a Bachelor's degree in Food Studies and Nutrition, a Master's degree in Advanced Nutrition and have a Master's degree in Clinical Research. Alongside my qualifications I also have over 6 years of NHS experience and have been running my freelance business for four years. I have the qualifications and the experience but also have the characteristics and skills needed to help you to achieve YOUR nutrition and health goals! My key areas of expertise are SUCCESSFUL weight management, gastro-intestinal disorders e.g. IBS, food intolerance, Ulcerative Colitis etc., diabetes, heart health and eating disorders. However I have considerable experience in a number of other areas which are listed on my profile.
My aim is to help YOU to achieve your individual and personal goals. I offer a variety of services which are listed below.
I offer home visits so will come to your place of residence or other agreed locations if preferable. The benefit of coming to your home is the fact that it allows me to understand your current environment and eating habits enabling me to inform an appropriate plan for you. Home visits allow for an in-depth assessment and understanding of your current situation and really get down to the finer details of things. You will receive the highest level of support from a home visit.
Dependent on your goals, the number of sessions you require may vary. For some conditions or enquiries, one session may suffice. My weight management patients generally benefit from blocks of sessions if they require continued support. Discounts are applied for block sessions.
Personalised Nutrition Plans
For those of you who are perhaps more time limited, along with colleagues, I specialise in creating Personalised Nutrition Plans for weight loss and a variety of clinical conditions. Phone consultations can be offered as a form of follow-up. I obtain information from you either on the phone or via an email questionnaire and your plan will be devised accordingly. The plan does not give a 7 day meal plan as standard but can be added if requested at an extra cost. The Personalised Nutrition Plan helps you to understand your condition, what you are doing currently in terms of dietary choices, and what you need to do to ensure short-term and long-term success to achieve your goals.
A new addition due to popular demand. I offer a 3 week meal plan which incorporates 7 different breakfasts, 7 different lunches, 7 different evening meals and 7-14 different snacks dependent on your food likes and dislikes. Your plan will be made in accordance with your current weight, your weight loss goal, your rate of weight loss and specific preferences. Diet plans do not include information about your condition or offer further advice beyond telling you what to eat, however, this tends to be a popular option so here it is!
For Weight Management, I can counsel:
- Very low calorie diets (800kcals/day)
- Low-carbohydrate diets
- Meal Replacement Plans
- Intermittent Fasting e.g. 5:2 Diet
- 500-1000kcal deficit
- Diet and Lifestyle goal setting
Examples of Clinical Nutrition Plan conditions:
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndome
- Heart Health
- Food Intolerance
- Ulcerative Colitis
- Coeliac Disease or Dermatitis Herpetiformis
- Please enquire for other clinical conditions
If you want reliable, personalised and professional nutritional support then please get in touch. I'm happy to answer any questions or queries so do get in touch either by phone or email.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in the NHS for several years gaining experience in many diverse clinical areas including gastroenterology, endocrinology, cardiology, surgery and ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat). I still work in the NHS as a Specialist Diabetes Dietitian alongside my freelance work.
A big passion of mine is weight management, helping people to reach their weight loss goals; I have helped clients to achieve some of the most fantastic results over the years. Similarly, helping patients control their IBS symptoms, helping people to achieve excellent diabetes control or coaching people to having a healthier heart is why I love my job and why I would never want to leave it.
I have a BSc (hons) in Food Studies and Nutrition from Leeds University, a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics from Leeds Metropolitan University resulting in becoming a Registered Dietitian. I have also completed a Masters in Advanced Nutrition.
I was recently awarded a scholarship from the National Institute of Health Research to learn about Clinical Research so have now completed my second Master's degree (Clinical Research) with the University of Manchester.
The reason why I became a Dietitian is so that I can help people to achieve their goals whilst knowing I have the knowledge and skills to be able to do so safely and effectively. If you feel I could help you reach your goals then get in touch TODAY!
