Regina Barker, BHSc, Adv.Dip Nutritional Medicine
I am passionate about health & nutrition and believe that every bit of food we eat influences how we look, feel and think. I love making healthy living accessible and simple, and believe that healthy eating should be a lifestyle. My approach to nutrition is pretty simple, and focuses on an abundance of high quality natural, primarily plant based, whole foods. These foods contain a great balance of nutrients and antioxidants, and function as true nourishment for our bodies, leaving us feeling and looking our best.
My vision for Nyoutritious is to help inspire people to approach healthy as a lifestyle that focuses on nutritious whole foods – not restrictive calorie counting. To see people find freedom in their relationship with food and make better choices out of appreciation for how our diets impact our overall health and wellbeing – and how it can be delicious, simple and fun.
I believe this will lead to sustainable changes that will not only benefit, but completely revolutionise, our health and wellbeing as well as our environment.
I am originally from Denmark, but moved to Australia in 2006 where I began pursuing my passion for health & nutrition. I met my husband, and after studying Nutritional Medicine in Sydney, Australia, I went on to complete a University degree in Health Science (complementary medicine) in New York City. After completing my degree, I started working as a nutrition specialist for one of the world’s leading health & weight loss companies in NYC, and during this time I also started up a nutrition project in a non-profit organisation that sought to teach young children about the importance of healthy eating. We now live in London, UK with our three children, and, aside from raising our family, I work as a freelance nutrition consultant for corporate organisations from all over the world, as well as with private clients.
