Hi. I’m Carla, Registered Associate Nutritionist and Director of Wild Healthy Nutrition. I help people sort through the information they’ve been told about their health and their bodies. That information may have come from something as legitimate as a diagnosis from a health professional or from something as non-sensical and toxic as diet culture.
I have an MSc in Nutritional Medicine from the University of Surrey and am a Registered Associate Nutritionist with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). My masters research focused on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). I conducted the first cross-sectional study of dietary patterns in an Irish NAFLD population and our team created a tool for quickly assessing dietary patterns at intake in tertiary care. Our first publication can be read here, in the European Journal of Nutrition.
My approach to nutrition is evidence-based and person-centred. It is informed by nutritional science and is blended with the Health at Every Size approach. I am a certified Intuitive Eating counsellor and use a non-diet framework for helping my clients repair their relationship with food, re-learn hunger and satiety cues and unlearn restrictive and punitive food rules. Wild Healthy Nutrition is a weight-inclusive practice and your health is the priority; at any size.
