Learn about evidenced based nutrition from an Exeter based nutritionist and dietitian. Improve your health and wellbeing and manage your health complaints
   
Hi, I'm Ruth, a Registered Dietitian specialising in IBS and Sport's Nutrition. With over 10 years experience working with clients within the NHS and overseas, I have developed expertise in the dietary management of a wide variety of diseases and health concerns, so whatever service you require I will take your overall health and wellbeing into concern.

I have always been passionate about food and love to cook tasty nutritious meals for my family and friends. Food is certainly fuel, but it should be a pleasure too and often our lifestyles mean that many people find cooking and eating a chore.  If you have IBS or are training for a sports event, or even just trying to improve your fitness eating well and getting results is something that needs to be tailored to your individual symptoms and activity.  That's where I can help.  

  • IBS suffers: reduce symptoms, identify your triggers and increase the variety in your diet.

  • Athletes and exercise enthusiasts: learn to fuel right for your training regimen, so that you are always optimising your training.  Increase lean mass and meet weight targets.  Learn how to carb load correctly.  Stay hydrated and know how and when to increase protein.

HOW DOES A DIETITIAN COMPARE TO A NUTRITIONIST?​

Short answer: a dietitian is a highly qualified nutritionist!
 


Dietitians are the only nutritional professional registered with the HCPC (like your GP is!).  This means we are regulated, have to prove continued professional development and meet strict codes of conduct.

Dietitians attend university to gain a degree specifically in the field of nutrition and dietetics. Our training involves understanding human physiology and biochemistry and an education in diseases and the medical treatment of these. We are the only nutritional professional trained to treat clients in a medical setting.

I will discuss your concerns with you and ask detailed information regarding your medical history, medications, lifestyle, mental health and current diet so that I can make recommendations specifically suited to your needs and food preferences.  
​​
There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to what we eat and therefore a dietitian can help you explore your needs and focus on a long-term nutrition solution.
