Q: What is your role as EFAA’s on-site nutritionist?
A: My role is to talk with participants and give them ideas on how to improve their health and wellbeing. The main rule is to meet participants where they are. First, discover and focus upon their main health concerns. Next, balance this with their current dietary and lifestyle patterns. Then, start by creating a couple of agreed upon goals that they can practice in their daily life.
Q: What are people most surprised to learn from you?
A: How profoundly nutrition can change the health dynamics of their body. Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your role? I enjoy helping people learn how to take charge of their health. I also find it fascinating to investigate the root causes leading to poor health. Everyone is so unique and so you really have to listen, ask the right questions, make the right inferences and decide how much they can handle at one time. The really awesome thing is that it’s almost never too late to give your body the tools it needs to heal itself!
