How it works


How would you like to receive nutritional advice: in person or online?
Choose where: if you prefer a meeting directly to your home thanks to the service online  alternatively in person you can choose my studio di Novara or Arona 

Which type of visit is right for you?
After looking at my services, check out my tariffs. Decide which plan best suits your needs, single session with or without a nutritional plan, follow-up visit. If there is a pathology, visits have a different cost.

Make an appointment
Conveniently from my website you can book a free 15 minute consultation where I take the time to talk to my potential patients before starting to work with them. I listen to your story, your goals to make sure that my programs are perfect for you and aimed at making you achieve the results you want. At your disposal a free 15-minute call where I can let you know how I can help you. Once you've chosen the type of visit or package that's right for you, you can get in touch with me via e-mail or by telephone and I'll let you know what time slots are available for appointments. Don't forget to specify whether you want a face-to-face or online consultation. Online counseling benefits  a €20 discount!

First date
For the first visit it is necessary to bring the most recent blood tests performed, in case of diagnosed pathologies, the doctor's diagnosis and the list of drugs taken. 
List of recommended blood tests: 
Complete blood count, blood sugar, creatinine, AST, ALT, GGT, HDL and LDL, cholesterol, triglycerides, CRP, ESR, TSH, FT3, FT4, homocysteine, vitamin B9, vitamin B12, Ca, Na, K, serum iron and urine tests.

Food diary
Blood tests are used to evaluate the general state of health of the patient. However, this is not enough to create a personalized meal plan, as each individual has different dietary needs and habits.
That's why I ask my patients to fill a detailed food diary for three days, in which they write down everything they eat and drink. This detailed log allows me to understand the patient's eating habits and to identify any nutritional errors or imbalances. Plus, it helps me create a personalized meal plan that aligns with their tastes, habits, and health goals.
The food diary is an important source of information during nutritional consultations, but it is also a tool patients can use to monitor their progress and achieve their long-term goals. Together, we will work to create a balanced and sustainable food plan that respects individual needs and preferences.

No bioimpedancemetry
Many nutritionists use bioelectrical impedance assessment (BIA) to determine a patient's body composition, which includes body fat percentage, muscle mass, and other parameters. However, I have decided not to use this tool in my practice. The main reason I don't do the BIA is that I don't find it necessary for most of my patients. This evaluation can be useful for individuals who already have a good understanding of nutrition and exercise, and who want to achieve very specific body composition goals, such as bodybuilders or elite athletes. However, for most people, the focus should be on achieving a balanced and sustainable lifestyle, rather than on the search for a "perfect" body.

No Measurements
I have decided not to use these tools in my practice, including the scale, and I rely on the collaboration of my patients to gather information on their weight and their eating habits. Measurement of weight and other anthropometric measures I do not consider necessary for most of my patients. My philosophy is based on promoting an healthy and balanced lifestyle , rather than on achieving very specific body composition goals. Also, I noticed that weight measurement can be stressful for some patients and can lead to disordered eating behaviors. I prefer to encourage my patients to keep a detailed food diary, as highlighted above, and to monitor their progress through other health indicators, such as energy, sleep quality, digestion and bowel regularity. Using the scale at home helps reduce stress and promote a more positive, wellness-focused approach to managing your weight and eating habits.

Meal plan delivery 
Within a week of the first appointment you will receive your personalized meal plan. The meal plan will be designed to help you prepare each meal so you can begin to reach your goal. You will also receive helpful hints and guidelines for difficult situations. You will also receive recipes.
Control visits
If you like it or if you need constant support, we can schedule meetings in person or online to help you achieve your goals, monitor your progress, answer all your questions. 

Appointment cancellation
If for any problem you are unable to come to the appointment, I kindly ask you to notify me with at least 24h notice. That said, the more notice you can give me the better I'll be at serving my patients - including you.

Payment must be made at the end of the first visit if done in person orin advance if done online. 
I accept the following: credit cards, debit cards or cash.
