General Info

About me

I am a nutritionist because I am passionate about knowing how what we eat can determine our health, how these foods suffer reactions inside us, generating us enough energy to perform daily tasks, physical activity and sport. Any condition and achievement attained becomes unique and unrepeatable in each patient and to be part of it makes it really rewarding.
