Hello, I’m Dr Stephanie Fade lover of food, science and health and founder of Eating Mindset. I have a degree (BSc) in Nutrition with First Class Honours and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics from Kings College, London University. As a Dietitian my work is regulated under UK law by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC.) To stay registered with the HCPC I have to demonstrate that I continue to meet the high standards they set throughout my career.
I use the title Dr because I have a PhD. This means that I have demonstrated expertise in assessing the quality and value of other people’s research and in designing, conducting and presenting my own research. I use these skills to make sense of the science behind the nutrition headlines and bust myths about diet and health. This is crucial in a popular field like nutrition where sensational claims are made almost every week.
I have learnt a vast amount from over 20 years’ experience in my profession and from parenting 2 children with additional needs that make it hard for them to eat healthily. It’s a pleasure to support other parents in their labour of love to help their children achieve a healthy diet.
All this means that you can be assured that I maintain expertise about how our bodies and minds work in relation to the food and drink we consume and that I can apply this knowledge to the practical challenges you face.
I offer a totally individualised service. Before seeing clients I like to fully assess their current food and drink intake, their current understanding of diet and health and their lifestyle and dietary challenges. I do this using food diaries and simple questionnaires. By the time we meet face to face we can focus on your goals and discuss tailored strategies to tackle your specific issues. I help individuals and their families eat more healthily, lose weight and manage any diet related medical conditions they might have. I see clients at various locations around Watford and London. After your initial consultation you will receive a detailed, personalised report including links to recipes and practical resources to help you on your journey to better health. Follow up consultations can be offered via Skype/e-mail for your convenience.
