reach your goals.
Every time you open the internet or turn on the TV, you learn about a nutrition topic or a specific
food. Nutritionist, dietitians and other non-food experts are almost everywhere around you!
Many times the information is conflicting and you end up more confused than informed.
However, the truth is simple and obvious; I learned it from college, of course, during my journey
of learning, but also from my personal life experiences, while raising up my two beautiful
children (who are grownups by now) my travels and my encounters with so many inspiring
I want to share with you my philosophy in life, summarized in three simple rules:
We are born with different shapes and sizes and we have to love ourselves no matter what. Do not be deceived with model images in magazines and on social media that are often retouched to appear perfect. Take care of yourself by eating well and exercising regularly.
Find ways that work for you, what makes you feel well and happy. There are no magic potions, just listen to what your body needs and provide it.
When you set unrealistic goals or make complicated plans this is surely a recipe for failure. Start slowly, make simple steps to change your habits and be patient.
Why Dr. Carla’s way is so special?
I rely on solid scientific resources when preparing my media topics,lectures and during consultations with patients. Consultations with patients. Speaking of private consultations, I only believe in the personalized approach. To me, individuals differ a lot in their nutritional needs and food preferences. According to me, those are the criteria for a SOUND diet plan if you need to lose, gain weight or have any health problem:
That is Dr. Carla’s way
