New Start is Beginning
Dietetics is defined as “the branch of knowledge concerned with the diet and its effects on health, especially with the practical application of a scientific understanding of nutrition.” At MEALpyramid, our philosophy lies heavily in the simplicity and practicality of incorporating healthy eating habits that are based on whole, real foods into someone’s existing lifestyle. We strongly believe that our clients eat and train rather than diet and exercise. To eat is a necessity, however to eat intelligently is a science.

My nutrition beliefs revolve around the thought that food and eating should be an enjoyable experience, not something to be feared. The goal is to shed light on the many myths and lies that are continuously circulating around nutrition and to help my clients sift through the nonsense and start eating to support REAL health for life. My focus is the restoration of excellent metabolic function by helping you break free from restrictive diets, achieve balanced hormonal health, vibrant energy, and natural weight management, achieving a life of health without the stress, worry and guilt of what to eat. It’s time to start honouring your body. Trust yourself, trust the process and believe that you can succeed. Stop believing the lies and start respecting what your body has and can do for you.
