Meaningful weight loss that reduces excess fat which stays off in the long term is not easy. It requires commitment & persistence.
For those who struggle with low body weight, gaining weight is just as difficult. An initial consultation with a several follow-up appointments is recommended.
Breast Cancer Nutrition
Nutrition is compromised by the presence of cancer and also its treatment. Side effects of treatment may include altered appetite, reduced food intake, taste changes, nausea & vomiting and more.
A consultation would include recommendations to manage symptoms & side effects, and would aim to reduce the impact of illness and treatment on nutritional status.
Eating well to fuel your body for exercise & fitness regimes is fraught with myth & misinformation. It is extremely difficult for the consumer to know what information is anecdotal and what is science; what food & products are appropriate to eat & which may in fact reduce performance.
Find the solutions for your goals with a nutrition consultation.
