A little information about my Nutritional Qualifications
Lorraine started her journey into Nutrition soon after the birth of her daughter. Having always carried too much weight and faced with a prospect of living in the states for three years, she became nervous about gaining even more weight. Totally confused by Nutrition, she believed only calories counted in losing weight and maintaining a healthy diet. It was then she decided to embarked on self education to ensure she didn’t become another yet another unhealthy, overweight statistic a result of the modern western diet.
In 2009 Lorraine took a couple of courses that introduced her to the concept of food and it’s relationship to health. On deciding that she was just scraping the surface of this vast subject, she embarked on a four year journey with the Institute of Optimum Nutrition to become a nutritional Therapist. A diploma from ION is a well recognised qualification in the field of Nutrition.
