BSc Human Nutrition & Dietetics, Sports Nutrition

"I was 20kg's overweight and decided to change my diet and lifestyle. I didn't think it would change much by having professional advice, because I tried all the diets for so many years that would give me momentary results. Besides being an excellent professional, Erika is a great partner in this long term journey which is food reeducation. To have someone that encourages you in a fun way by not cutting out everything that you love eating, but adapting them to your daily life was really essential." Mariana
"As a doctor I have a very busy life, often I would have to work day and night shifts that affected my eating habits. I know that good eating habits are the base line for a healthy life. With Erika's food and health monitoring I achieved my goals in a very healthy way and nowadays I use all this learning to help my patients." Dr Caio Uemura
"Erika was very diligent, persistent, encouraging, and knowledgeable. She was very kind but also stern and assertive when I needed her to be. She helped me become better with my eating habits and ultimately lose weight. I would recommend Erika to anybody looking for a Dietitian/Nutritionist, and especially to those, like me who tried everything and who have been up and down with their weight their whole life." Jeremy
