Nutritionist

I'm Angelique, a nutritionist based in London. My mission is to help you live a healthier life, filled with energy and free from painful symptoms. I use scientific research to give you the tools to improve your overall wellbeing, using nothing but nutrition, lifestyle changes, and supplementation. My nutrition journey started in my early twenties when I began suffering from eating disorders. I was anorexic, then bulimic, and then extremely overweight. I developed autoimmune hypothyroidism; was diagnosed with PCOS, and had many food intolerances. I have had 2 miscarriages and I am no stranger to hormonal havoc. Looking back, I'm glad I went through it all. My health issues are the reason I got my nutrition qualification and why I can relate to the people I work with. I love what I do. This is why I want to share my journey with you and I hope you share yours with me :-)

Nutritionist vs Dietitian vs Nutritional Therapist

I get asked this all the time. Here's my take on it. A nutritionist is anybody who claims to be an expert in the field of nutrition. This is a broad description because some nutritionists have not studied, meaning they are not appropriately qualified and do not belong to a governing body. When taking advice from a nutritionist always check they have studied, are registered and belong to a governing body.

A dietitian is somebody who has a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. Dietitians generally work with the NHS, although some will work directly with the public. I am not a dietitian.

A nutritional therapist is somebody who is appropriately qualified and has a recognised qualification in Nutritional Therapy. Nutritional therapists usually work in private practice offering bespoke health plans, using nutrition and lifestyle interventions to help support the body towards maintaining health. I am a qualified and registered nutritional therapist. I also refer to myself as a nutritionist because many people are not aware of what a nutritional therapist is. When taking advice from a nutritional therapist always check they have appropriately qualified, are registered and belong to a regulated governing body as it is not a protected title. As a nutritional therapist, in my clinic I specialise in weight management, hormonal health, stress and digestion.

BANT, my governing body has more to say about nutrition titles.

Nutritionist Approved Recipes

At the heart of every healthy lifestyle is a nutritious diet packed with wholesome super foods which satisfy the tastebuds. Most of my recipes are healthy alternatives to classic dishes like cauliflower pizza, while the rest are made up of breakfasts, desserts and smoothies. I am constantly experimenting with ingredients such as gluten free pasta, sugar free chocolate, dairy free milk and gluten free bread. I get all my ingredients from my health shop.
