Dr Michelle Braude qualified as a medical doctor (MBBS) from University College London, and has a BSc in Nutrition from King’s College, London who specialises in health and nutrition. After completed a year-long research project looking at nutritional intake and Crohn’s Disease and carried out an elective period in Gastroenterology at the Whittington Hospital London, she founded her own nutrition practice, The Food Effect. Here she combines her knowledge in the fields of medicine and nutrition to help people with their medical conditions including and diet.
“I would say my specialties are nutrition for optimal health and well-being; weight-loss; improving energy levels; dealing with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); fertility and pregnancy (as well as seeing clients with polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS) and for post-pregnancy weight-loss,” she says. She also deals with stress and tiredness, and improving these through diet and lifestyle changes.
Dr Braude designs nutrition plans that are enjoyable whilst aiding weight loss and enhancing health and well-being. The philosophy behind The Food Effect is that healthy eating is an essential and pleasurable way of life that can be achieved by everyone, and that weight loss should not come at the expense of overall health and optimal physical functioning.
“Many “diets”, nutrition plans, cleanses and “detoxes” will get you to lose weight, but leave you with dull, lifeless skin, lacking in energy, and often feeling hungry, tired, dizzy and even faint. Not only are such diets unadvisable from a health perspective, but they are unsustainable,” Dr Braude says.
It should, instead be a process of making enjoyable long-lasting changes that promote health, happiness & longevity. The Food Effect lifestyle recognises that weight loss is just one benefit of healthy eating. When properly planned to include all the key nutrients, what we eat will have a dramatic impact on how we look, feel and function – and that’s what makes it sustainable – once you look and feel better you’ll want to keep on eating that way.
The four pillars of her philosophy are that a successful healthy eating lifestyle should be individual, simple, pleasurable and sustainable.
