About me

Hi,

I’m Francesca.

I’m an Italian Registered Associate Nutritionist within the AfN and an ex semi-professional dancer and I specialize in Sports Nutrition and Healthy Eating. As a Nutritionist, I believe that one size does not fit all when it comes to nutrition advice.

My mission is to guide, support and provide you with the right tools to achieve optimal nutrition and long-term health, all through a science-based approach. I am a strong believer that nutrition should be about nourishing your body and soul with delicious food that makes you feel the best version of yourself.

As a professional ballet dancer, training every day, I had to learn how to fuel my body to perform better and to monitor my nutritional intakes for over 18 years. I use this unique insight to provide my clients with practical, insightful and lifestyle-driven nutritional advice.

I believe in a scientific and personalised approach to nutrition to help my clients achieve their goals through sustainable changes and achieve a healthy relationship with food, with no restrictions.

My mission is to give you the tools to nourish and fuel your body without restriction or food rules, in a way that makes you reach your goals and feel the best.

If you are an athlete, we will work together to create a meal guidance that fits perfectly into your training and competition schedule.

I provide nutritional consultations, both in English and Italian.

I specialise in these core areas:

  • Sports nutrition
  • Dance nutrition
  • Balance Eating
  • Balanced Diet
  • Healthy Eating
  • Mediterranean Diet
  • Vegan and Vegetarian diet

Further information

Online consultations:

Our initial online consultation last for 60 minutes. During the consultations we will review your food diary, evaluating what can be adjusted and modified. I will ask you questions to better understand your individual needs and being able to help you.

We then work with you to refine a treatment programme based on setting mutual goals. Goal setting is a fundamental process in making each session tangible and outcome-focused. Each goal is designed to be time-specific, manageable and focused.

Once we have outlined the treatment programme, I will give you practical, personalised advice to take away. This will be individual to you and will be based on how these changes can fit around you and your lifestyle, I don’t expect you to completely change your taste preferences or your social lifestyle but I give you expert ways to bring in real sustained behavioural change that lasts.

In clinic consultation:

Our initial consultations last for 60 minutes. In the few minutes prior to your arrival the nutritionist will be preparing the space for your assessment and setting up your client profile on our secure nutrition systems to allow for any session notes which may need to be captured. During the initial consultation our nutritionist will introduce the session agenda, run through the client assessment form and conduct a full medical and dietary review, addressing all health symptoms, health concerns and a full understanding into your lifestyle and health goals.

Next, we will conduct advanced body assessments, measuring your height, weight, BMI. We then work with you to refine a treatment programme based on setting mutual goals. Goal setting is a fundamental process in making each session tangible and outcome-focused. Each goal is designed to be time-specific, manageable and focused.

Once we have outlined the treatment programme, our nutritionists will give you practical, personalised advice to take away. This will be individual to you and will be based on how these changes can fit around you and your lifestyle, we don’t expect you to completely change your taste preferences or your social lifestyle but we give you expert ways to bring in real sustained behavioural change that lasts.
