FOOD SENSITIVITIES AND IMBALANCES

Every body is different. Your body may like different foods than your friends and it also may not agree with others. Food sensitivities and nutritional imbalances cause inflammation, fatigue, and weight gain. Just to name a few symptoms! Filling your body with the right nutrients provides abundant energy and overall well being.

Mia was struggling with her body image throughout adolescence. Trying out different fad diet, yoyo dieting, fasting for days… she experienced them all, just like many people who struggles themselves with body image and weight. Her experience inspired her to study nutrition and finally become a dietitian. In her first two years of university, she lost more than 30 ibs and maintained it by applying what she learnt from school and incorporating the most recent research. By now, Mia has helped hundreds of people achieve their weight goals.

Having been working as a clinical dietitian in hospitals, outpatient units, rehabilitation hospitals, clinics and community care, she has extensive experience in weight management, chronic disease prevention and management, sport nutrition, gut health and etc. She is also working as a community dietary for pre and post natal nutrition program which run group nutrition workshops and individual nutrition consultations. She can help you with everything you need from pre-conception, pregnancy, post partum to infant nutrition.

She believes that if you cannot follow a diet plan for life, that’s not the right one for you! It’s all about lifestyle changes. We all are craving for delicious cookies, chocolates, fries, burgers, chips once a while. Nothing needs to be avoided completely, but it is all about having it in moderation and maintaining a positive lifestyle in general. Enjoying delicious foods and having healthy food choices are not contradictory at all!
