In a society increasingly preoccupied with food, dieting, weight and physical appearance, it can be difficult to stay true to one’s sense of wellbeing and self-worth, find the motivation and the means to focus on a healthy and agreeable lifestyle. Difficulties in managing the weight can have deep-rooted origins often linked to psychological and social experiences and expressed in one’s relationship with food.

Gilda is commited to guiding and supporting clients who have concerns about their eating behaviour, weight and body image.

One of the greatest rewards in her work is to see them commit to positive change with self-confidence and embrace healthier, happier choices in their lives. Developing a healthy relationship with the body and addressing weight-related concerns may require professional guidance and support.

It may be a good time to consult when...

  • Your weight is on a roller coaster ride you wish to end
  • You tried “everything” in a desire to lose weight
  • You feel you have little or no control over your eating
  • Your mood and emotions affect how and what you eat
  • You have feelings of guilt about your diet and your weight
  • Looking at yourself in the mirror is hard to do
  • Gaining weight is necessary to improve your health


  • Emotional, compulsive eating

Healthy Lifestyle
and Wellness

Physical wellness rests on a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating well, being physically active, managing stress, not smoking, and sleeping well. Wellness is an ongoing process that requires constant change, growth, self-awareness and emotional involvement, in order to reach one’s full potential for a healthy life.

Gilda strongly believes in prevention, and healthy eating plays an essential role in preventing health problems. She also believes it is never too late to make positive changes and improve health outcomes.

Her nutritional approach includes guidance for improving one’s relationship with food, preserving or rediscovering the pleasure of eating, and learning to make sense of the latest dietary trends. Clarity and confidence can go a long way on the path toward healthy eating and a healthy life.

“Life is a combination of magic and pasta.” - Federico Fellini


The human body is strong and resilient, even when health problems occur. While aging and heredity are not within our control, we do have the power to improve the outcome of living with a health risk or a disease by changing positively the way we take care of our bodies and ultimately the way we live. While the body’s ailments may not all be solved solely with proper nutrition, Gilda is convinced that healthy eating is indispensable to solving the equation responsible for good health and balance in life.

Eating is a daily act, a pleasure, and sometimes a challenge and a source of anxiety. Nutritional therapy plays an integral role in the process of healing and improving quality of life for people suffering from health problems, especially chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and gastrointestinal problems.

Gilda provides scientifically-sound nutritional advice along with the guidance and support clients need to integrate dietary changes required by their medical condition, while preserving the pleasure to eat, at home as well as in social settings.
