About

Hello, I am Alex and I am a Registered Associate Nutritionist with the Association for Nutrition (AFN). I am from Brazil but have lived most of my life now in the UK. I have also lived in Germany for 5 years. I love meeting people , being sociable and sharing my love of Nutrition Science.

My Story:

My journey to becoming a nutritionist started in my mid-forties. Before this, I was not prioritising my health in the same way as other aspects of my life. A full-time job, working abroad, having to learn a new language and way of life, compounded with my husband working away for most of the week, meant that I was left juggling time and young children. I was over worked, sleep deprived and eating emotionally. Unfortunately, at that time I didn't see it like that until a health scare swiped me off my feet. I was scared and did not know where to start.

After almost five years in Germany, my family and I decided to return to the UK.  I knew I needed time to reflect on my life and where it was taking me.  After a year off I decided that being healthy was my top priority, so I enrolled  to study Human Nutrition at Oxford Brookes University as an Associate Student.  I then undertook a Masters in Nutrition and Food Sciences at the University of Reading, achieving a pass with distinction. I have not looked back since.

Now I am feeling healthier than I have ever felt. After my own struggles to eat healthily and understand how nutrition was affecting my body, mood and other aspects of my  life, such as movement, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery and compassion for the first time in my life. I learned that when we look after our health and our wellbeing everything else begins to fall into place.

 

Today I can say with my whole heart that this journey has been amazing and it has given me a much stronger purpose: to work with people in similar situations and to let them know that a change is possible, regardless of their starting point. I really want my story to help people to know that you can take charge of your health and wellbeing and that it is never too late to make a change.

 

I am here to support you all the way in your health and wellbeing  journey. Not only has my life has been transformed but also the lives of my husband and children.

 

I would like to leave you with this quote and if this resonates with you please do get in touch, I would love to help you in your journey too.
