Where it all started?

My initial experience in wellness clinics was not pleasant. The weight-loss obsessed culture and calorie counting was too toxic. This, in addition to witnessing my clients, struggle, and feel depressed as they "failed" to achieve their targets; pushed me to quit my high paying job to start Notorious Nutritionist in 2017. I partnered with like-minded and ethical Doctors and gained experience in Medical Nutrition.

Why "Notorious Nutritionist"?

As a Dietician, I wanted to talk about food that heals and prescribe Food Plans that nourish my patients/ clients. This made me a bit of a maverick in a field where diets are all about eating less/ fasting/ removing a food group/ detoxes/ calorie counting. In addition, I personally enjoyed the alliteration, and thus,  Notorious Nutritionist came into existence.
