Aisling Daly – Blood Pressure and Cholesterol
This week on the podcast I had a conversation with Aisling Daly. It was so interesting and I think you’re going to find it super informative too.
We talked about blood pressure and cholesterol among other things, looking at whether being in a bigger body affects these parts of our health. We also talked about how we can make small changes to our diet that will help to support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Changes can be made without focussing on weight loss.
Aisling is a Registered Nutritionist with the AfN, specialising in Public Health Nutrition. She has a BSc in Human Nutrition and an MSc in Nutrition for Global Health, and is currently completing her PhD focussing on adolescent nutrition and eating behaviours. She also lectures in nutrition and works one to one with clients. This breadth of experience gives her a wide understanding of the importance of nutrition for health along with the challenges individuals face in understanding and applying public health guidance to their own individual situation.
She has recently expanded her knowledge in the anti-diet approach, is HAES-aligned and applies intuitive eating into her practice, helping people improve their relationship with food and their body.
Here’s the episode for you to listen to. Settle in and enjoy!
