My professional experience:
I have been a registered dietitian and nutritionist for over 25 years, initially in acute hospital settings, but for the last 15 years with more focus on eating disorders and disordered eating. I also work as a sports dietitian with dancers and dance students. My dietetic practice has over the years covered a vast range of conditions and diets and has also included a period of research work into vegetarians and bone density.
My personal statement:
For dietetic advice for medical conditions my aim is to make the required diet as compatible as possible with an individual’s lifestyle. For sufferers of eating disorders and disordered eating I establish what the current food and fluid intake is and then advise gradual change to reach a meal plan that allows optimisation of physical health.
