Leading our new enhanced service is nutritionist Caroline Masters, who tells us a bit about herself and her nutrition philosophy in her own words…..
Introducing Caroline, our nutritionist.
When I left AIB Bank, Mullingar in 2012; I commenced training immediately to become a Nutritional Therapist studying anatomy, physiology and pathology. Following success in achieving my Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, this was quickly followed by a further qualification in sports nutrition. I always had a huge interest in this subject and I am passionate to share how simple changes to daily diet and exercise can have such a major impact on well-being, weight management and energy levels across a wide spectrum of people, irrespective of their situation.
Starting with a clinic in my home town of Ballymahon in January 2015, I launched my own nutrition programme specialising in weight loss and in easing a range of conditions through helping clients make better food choices and identifying food intolerances. From the outset, clients benefit from my detailed Personal Initial Consultation and those that progressed through my 6 week programme have had great success. Continued monitoring has ensured that the positive changes have become embedded…..with the good habits now being “the routine”.
If I can do it – so can you!
In January 2014, even though I thought I was ‘healthy’, I realised through putting into practice my learning, I could be doing a lot better!! I changed my diet, addressing those bad habits I had acquired over the years and with healthier food choices and increased regular exercise I lost weight steadily each week totalling 35lb in 20 weeks. I felt so much better and can honestly say I was never hungry.
A good routine is key to success along with being organised and keeping food choices simple. As I have lost weight myself and because I had such a ‘sweet tooth’, I can relate to my clients struggles to break bad habits and make changes to their daily routine, that stick. It is small sustainable changes that will make the long term difference and consistency is key.
What is different about Whelehans newly expanded Nutrition Clinic?
There are many weight loss clubs around these days, however these are mostly group centred and not tailored to individual needs. The clinic at Whelehans is a private space where we will meet weekly, one to one to discuss your individual needs and make a plan for a healthier you. You will be educated, motivated and monitored. It is a friendly, affordable, flexible service suitable for men, women and children.
