Dr. Ruxandra Plesea
Doctor Ruxandra Plesea is passionate about nutrition since high school and says she sees her profession as a “holy duty” to help people reach their full potential through nutrition. Food is not just energy, it’s also emotional intake, because it “can push you into the abyss or it can help you fly.” This change is possible if we climb this mountain step by step, and the role of the nutrition consultant is to help people find the right paths for adapting to a proper lifestyle when it comes to their nutritional behavior.
At first people are reluctant to changing their nutrition style, but once they change their lifestyle they are no longer willing to return to their old habbits. An important source is time. To adopt another style of eating, we must prioritize this and transform it into routine. From her experience as a doctor, it is a process that lasts for around 6 months. She finds it fascinating how people’s lives change when they change their way of eating.
