Today I’m joined by Talia Cecchele a registered dietitian and nutritionist currently working and living in the UK. Talia and I first met when we were both working at an inpatient eating disorder facility in Sydney and became fast friends as well as colleagues. As a dietitian specialising in eating disorders, I wanted to pick her brain on:
How gut health gets impacted by eating disorder behaviours
If eating disorders can create true food intolerances and/or IBS
What eating in recovery looks like
What foods and lifestyle habits promote good gut health
And how long/when it’s appropriate to transition to intuitive eating
Speaker Background – Talia Cecchele
Welcome Talia! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist living and working in London. I work as a specialist eating disorder dietitian on an inpatient unit and also privately in a London clinic providing individual consultations for a range of nutritional issues, for both adults and children. I don’t believe in restrictive or fad diets; instead I advocate for a positive relationship with food and to follow a diet that nourishes both the body and mind.
What’s your relationship with food, movement and your body like? Why did you choose to specialise in eating disorders as a dietitian?
I have a balanced approach and positive relationship with nutrition and exercise. I believe that all foods can be included in your diet and that movement should be enjoyable. I fell into the area of eating disorders when I started working as a paediatric dietitian in a Sydney Children’s Hospital and really enjoyed it. I felt that I could really make a difference to someone’s life and have continued working in the area for almost 4 years now.
What are you passionate about at work and in your own personal life?
I am passionate about helping people to improve their relationship with food, and learn how to nourish their body and mind with a balanced approach to diet and movement. I want to help as many people as I can which is why I started my social media accounts. In my personal life I practice what I preach and love cooking and eating out socially with friends. I also love travelling which is why I made the move to London.
What are your goals for 2019?
I’ve already ticked a few goals I had for 2019 already which included starting private practice, creating a monthly newsletter through my website and appearing on a podcast so thank you Sarah! My other goal is to host a nutrition workshop in London later this year. Basically I want to continue to grow my brand and help as many people as possible!
