I chose the profession of nutritionist because nutrition undoubtedly plays an important role in everyone's life. I believe that a healthy and balanced diet is the key to success in a full and energetic life.
The advice of a nutritionist is very useful not only for overweight people, chronic diseases or eating disorders, but also for healthy people who want to eat healthy and organize their menu. I believe that products should not be considered 'good' or 'bad'. Any food can be included in the menu, but it is important to understand how often and in what quantities.
I would like the society to have a correct idea of the profession of a nutritionist. A nutritionist is not a person who forbids eating or makes strict and distressing diets. A nutritionist is a professional who will help each patient to improve their menu and promote the idea that a healthy diet is not a specific diet, but a lifestyle.
As a nutritionist, I will be happy to help patients improve their health, as well as understand how it is easiest to follow the basic principles of a balanced diet on a daily basis. I promise that it is possible to eat inexpensively, healthy and very tasty!
