Ashleigh thank you so much for putting together such an interesting and tasty meal plan for me...you really break the mould of boring diet food.

Why Visit A Dietitian?
A dietician is an expert nutritionist and health coach that can help with all of your nutrition needs. A dietitian is not just a weight management specialist but can assist with any health condition where nutrition plays a role. In fact, nutritional interventions are recognised as complementary therapies to almost every ailment or illness. Ashleigh Caradas is a Johannesburg dietitian with almost 15 years experience in private practice. Ashleigh does not believe in boring and unnecessarily restrictive diet regimes and focuses on nutritional nourishment and behaviour change to help you reach your goals. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to diets and eating plans. Ashleigh will help you clear up any misconceptions about popular diets and will explain how to make food and various diet regimes work to your advantage, using evidence-based practices and while still enjoying your food! Ashleigh takes your personal preferences and goals into account to help you find the ideal diet for your body type and dietary needs. Ashleigh has a keen interest in Integrative and Functional medicine, which takes the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle into account. She also uses cutting edge diagnostics for those who require a more in-debth look at their constitutions.
Ashleigh is centrally located in Parktown North, Johannesburg, close to both Rosebank and Sandton CBDs but consults nation wide via virtual platforms.
Ashleigh On Health
Health is not just about preventing disease and living a longer and more vital life. Health is one of the gateways to your personal freedom. Without optimum health, you cannot experience love, joy and prosperity to its fullest. Good health gives you that extra freedom and energy to embrace all that life has to offer. Wellness comprises physical, mental and emotional aspects of health and it is not about being the leanest, or fittest person on the block. It is more about being the best you that you can be, given your strengths and your limitations. Getting well requires adjusting your lifestyle, which requires commitment and change, which is why people often choose someone like a dietitian to support them on this often bumpy journey.
Ashleigh holds a bachelor’s degree in Science from the University of the Witwatersrand and a Medical honours degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Cape Town. She has been in private practice as a Nutritionist and Dietician since 2005.
Ashleigh is also a freelance health journalist and her articles have appeared in Longevity, Me!, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Shape and Essentials magazines. She wrote regular features and columns for Living and Loving Magazine and the Business Day Health News (a supplement to the Business Day Financial Mail) and contributes to various blogs.
