Expert. Professional. Practical.
nutrilosophia.com project began in 2011 as a reaction to the rising number of nutritional misinformation in the media. Through articles, free dietary assessment, individualized programs, lectures and workshops, we aim to demistify diet, simplify dietary advice and put focus on actually important factors of a diet.
We do not promote any specific dietary approach. We use our scientific experience for critical interpretation of the literature. Because of that, we give unbiased advice in the best interest of our readers and clients.
Diet is more than just a number on the scale, even more than just the nutrients that make it. We emphasize the psychological component of healthy eating and a healthy approach to food. Our goal is not to plan a perfect diet, rather an optimal one.
Our clients include numerous local and international top athletes, among other Olympic, European and World champions in different sports, as well as national champions and record holders. We offer nutrition students opportunities for professional development and collaborate with a number of fitness centers, coaches, psychologists, as well as institutions and organizations such as Cochrane Croatia, together promoting a healthier lifestyle and scientific approach to nutrition.
