Massimiliano Scalzo, Nutritionist ,I have an immense passion for nutrition. I studied Food Science and Human Nutrition and helping others discover their ideal diet based on scientific evidence, clinical experience, and the belief that no diet should ever make you unhappy.
Having worked in healthcare since 2008’s, I worked within conventional medical clinics developing and delivering lifestyle programmes to people attending health assessments.
