Julianne Taylor, Registered Nutritionist (NZNS) and NZ Registered General & Obstetric Nurse (non-practicing),
Julianne experienced first-hand the difference diet makes; she experimented with the popular Zone diet in the 90’s, and within days experienced increased energy, improved mental focus, and excellent appetite control leading to weight loss without hunger. Further experiments led to trying the paleo diet in 2009, which eliminated auto-immune joint inflammation and menstrual issues.
As a result she changed careers, from a designer to a nutritionist, and went back to University to study nutrition at Massey. In 2015 Julianne completed a post graduate diploma in nutrition science.
Julianne has been researching the connection between diet and health since 1997, and applying what she has learned to her clients with great success. She has a special interest in how diet controls appetite regulation via control of ‘hunger’ hormones. Using these diet principals she has helped hundreds of people lose weight without hunger.
The effect of diet in reducing auto-immune disease is also a topic close to her heart, and in her post graduate work she researched diet studies and Rheumatoid arthritis, and interviewed 10 people who had successfully used a paleo diet to reduce symptoms or go into remission. Julianne is an AIP certified coach. Julianne is currently doing her PhD research on the effect of the auto-immune protocol (AIP) diet on rheumatoid arthritis
