'As an experienced, radical dietitian, I choose change. I work to change shame and oppression. I recognise these as two root causes of eating distress, poor health and inequalities. I work with individuals struggling with eating issues so they can feel more relaxed around food, more at peace in their bodies and more at home with their own and others’ innate dignity.

Changing shame and oppression also requires we change how we think and speak everyday, everywhere, including health care.

I give myself the best chance of achieving this, and I give you the best of what I know, and am, when I do dietetics differently: welcome then, to The Naked Dietitian.

Mainstream public health messages aren’t helping to build a fairer, healthier, society. Instead, we are constantly bombarded with messages that link our moral value to the foods we consume or to our weight. These messages misrepresent the relative roles of lifestyle and disadvantage in determining health outcomes, and move us away from compassionate, body-aware living and towards judgmental, mechanical thinking. At a personal level the body becomes a battleground. At a social level, we oppress and marginalise.

I want something very different to this. I want to go out into the world as part of peace convoy, challenging the deep roots of violence, advancing justice and promoting wellbeing.

I am committed to speaking out. I believe we need dissenting perspectives, communicated in humanising and meaningful ways, if we are to build a fairer world. I am passionate about sharing what I have learnt around eating, respect, pleasure, poetry, health, healing, ideology and social justice because this knowledge gave me back my body and transformed my life.'
