In light of graduating as a qualified nutritionist next year, I would like to offer you my work as a point of interest. All well-received and relevant projects will be made available in PDF form for those who wish to read any research I have made.

Disclosure: I am a student and remain unqualified to offer any advice. All the work made available to read has been well-received by the university however any health issues or concerns must be taken up with your GP or health professional.
