Francesca Straniero ANutr - Nutritionist
I’m an Italian Associate Registered Nutritionist (ANutr) within the Association for Nutrition, specialised in Sports Nutrition and I am working through the process to register as a sports nutritionist with the SENr.
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 aim is to help my clients to learn what healthy eating means for them, how to develop a flexible weekly meal plan and weekly shopping list for busy weeks.
If you are an athlete, we will work together to create a meal plan that fits perfectly into your training and competition schedule.
I provide nutritional consultations, both in English and Italian. I'm currently an associate nutritionist at the Health Nutritionist clinic.
I specialise in these core areas:
- Sports nutrition
- Dance nutrition
- Balance Eating
- Healthy Eating
- Mediterranean Diet
- Vegan and Vegetarian diet
- Weight loss
- Gut health
- Women health

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

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.
