Carla Bredin - Wild Healthy Nutrition

Carla Bredin, MSc, MA, BA, DipNT, ANutr


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. My research focuses on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). 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.



I have a strong interest in nutritional medicine and lifestyle medicine – combining facets of medicine, nutrition, psychology and exercise physiology in the pursuit of optimum health for you. My approach is evidence-based and has been informed by nutritional science. Blended through that approach is Intuitive Eating, a non-diet framework for re-learning hunger and satiety cues and unlearning restrictive and punitive food rules. Wild Healthy Nutrition is a weight-inclusive practice and your health is the priority; at any size.



I’m originally from Donegal, and that’s where the name comes from. Up there, we use Wild [pronounced Wile] to mean Very. My hope is that someday, an aul’ Donegal woman will walk up to you and exclaim “Jeez, aren’t you wild healthy these days, hi!”.

What is Nutritional Medicine?

Nutritional Medicine is an evidence-based approach to managing chronic lifestyle-related diseases through diet and lifestyle modulation. Its approach acknowledges the significant role dietary factors play in the development of certain diseases, while also following the best-practice for managing or reversing the disease once it has been established.
