He originally trained as a Chef before studying to become a Dietitian. He now combines these skills to provide clients with very tasty menu options when tailoring their personal meal plan.
Prior to moving to Darwin, Richard worked in two of Australia’s leading health retreats, sharing his insights and concepts that some described as ‘life changing’.

When it comes to preventing or managing obesity we now know it’s not always as simple as ‘energy in, energy out’, there is a need to understand the functional role food has on the body as well as the potential damaging effects
