Dietitian - Kristen Clarke

HPC Registered Dietitian / Programme Designer

BCaps, Human Nutrition (Distinction), PgDipDiet

Kristen Clarke

Kristen has been a registered dietitian in the field of weight management for over 9 years.  Her roles have been within the private and public sector with a combination of preventative and therapeutic dietary intervention working with individuals and at an acute and community level; and including those on all types of pharmacotherapy for obesity management and undergoing Bariatric surgery.

During this time Kristen has met hundreds of individuals who have been struggling with their weight year after year who have invested hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds and a lot of time and energy into weight management programmes that work for a while and until the weight returns when they resume a 'normal diet'. This has driven Kristen's passion for developing a cost effective weight management programme that is not another fad diet, but has been proved to be effective in reducing weight and keeping it off!  Piloting this programme in 2008-2011 within the diverse southwest london borough of Wandsworth is evidence of this success!
