What is Anushka working on?
Jessica is interested in developing, evaluating and improving dietetic strategies for the management of diabetes and will undertake her Research Doctorate (Ph.D) in this area starting July 2018 at the University of Sydney. Though diabetes management is one of her major areas of interest, Jessica is passionate about utilising the nutrition care process to investigate the role of diet in a wide range of health conditions and symptoms, including obesity, insulin resistance syndrome, hypertension, PCOS, dyslipidaemia, gastrointestinal issues and much more. She writes extensively on various nutrition-related topics and you can read some of her articles here.
Jessica is also a passionate speaker and presented a talk titled, ‘Evidence-Based Practice: Low-Carbohydrate Nutrition in the Literature’ at Low Carb Nutrition Perth in March 2018. In May 2018, she presented a second talk titled, ‘Low-Carbohydrate Diets for Type 1 Diabetes’ at Low Carb Sydney. These events are held regularly at various locations across Australia by Low Carb Down Under and Jessica will also present at Low Carb Thredbo 2018 and Low Carb Gold Coast 2018.
Why (and for who) does Anushka advocate a low carb approach?
As a nutritionist we look at disease management and prevention through a multidimensional lens. The quality of our food, nutrient adequacy, behaviours around food and lifestyle are all important factors in eating well and living a healthier life.
Through my own struggles with health and my own disordered relationship with food I learnt to eat in a way that fuels and nourishes my body so that I can live at my full potential. I now love including protein with every meal to support growth and repair, for neurotransmitter synthesis and happy hormones and for blood sugar balance.
