Born in sunny South Africa and raised in London, Dr Michelle Storfer (MBBS, BSc) qualified as a medical doctor from University College London and also completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Nutrition at King’s College London.
The mounting clinical evidence on the effect of nutrition on health convinced Michelle to combine her medical knowledge and passion for nutrition and establish The Food Effect, a comprehensive nutritional advice practice based in London.
In this episode of the Food For Fitness podcast, Michelle chats about her experience in the medical field, why good nutrition is so crucial yet often undervalued in the community and why she made the shift from doctor to nutritionist.
She explains some of the strangest things she’s heard patients do to lose weight, the health risks of many popular FAD diets, why juicing could be destroying your progress, her favourite strategies for woman who want to lose weight, how to re-steer clients who get off track, her top strategies for long term success, her favourite healthy meals and why she hates bananas.
