The Story Behind Understanding Living
Understanding Living is an online nutrition clinic owned by Scarlet Gilbart, a Registered Associate Nutritionist and a freelance nutrition writer and content creator. Understanding living was first created on Instagram as a way of documenting Scarlet's journey into health. Through her time at university, she realised how complex being healthy really is and made it her mission to help debunk the fake news and make nutrition more accessible. Scarlet has a BSc in Psychology and MSc in Clinical Nutrition which have provided her valuable skills in research and understanding the link between nutrition and mental health. She has completed training in Intuitive Eating through the London Center of Intuitive Eating forming the main basis of how Scarlet runs her clinic. Intuitive Eating looks at having food freedom and becoming more confident in yourself and your food choices without the thoughts and pressure of diet culture and weight loss. Scarlet is also able to offer support to those who may want general advice on nutrition without talking about weight loss.
