My name is Adrian Huma, I am 44, and I am a certified nutritionist. I have a strong background in mathematics and economics which eventually led me to a career in financial industry. Being more and more convinced on the importance of people wellbeing for the sustainable future of our world, since several years I am building constantly an education on nutrition and wellbeing, and I am more than happy to share it with everyone interested.Read more
Around 5 years ago I started a self-learning process which, doubled by intuition, helped me to lose more than 10 kilograms, from 88 to 76, in almost one year, I never went over this figure again. In fact after starting endurance sports I began to lose even more weight which made me to take the nutrition and wellbeing study path in order to understand how nutrition works and how to put back in the right way some of the kilos I have lost (no joke here, if losing weight can be a challenge, adding back kilos when you exercise could give you even a bigger head ache).
From a not very active lifestyle (8 hours on the chair at office and then some cozy “on the couch” tv sessions at home) I started to swim, run and cycle and eventually participate in amateur triathlon competitions and running races, succeeding in completing 4 semi-marathons in one year time and then swimming 3 km in one session in the open sea or completing a marathon.
I started to read and educate more and more on wellbeing aspects, mostly in nutrition, exercising, resting and stress management. And also to share what I have learned with the people around, which encouraged me to develop this further. Now, while many aspects of wellbeing are generally considered as approachable, when it comes to nutrition sessions, I have noticed that people associate this rather with complicated formulas and challenging diets which can keep you disconnected with the society or your circles of friends.
Good news is that it can be done also in a friendly manner, sustainable along the years to come, and integrating it in your lifestyle. To make a parallel with the mathematics, before solving complex equations you will need first to assimilate some basic algorithms. Those will help you understand the basic mechanics of eating, which will offer you the opportunity to achieve a visible progress with your wellbeing, in a decent time frame and easy to maintain going forward.
Why Eating Adviser?
A friendly, customized adviser on eating habits, combining both nutritional advice and an integrative, well-being approach. Eating is important, we are only partially what (and how) we eat, nonetheless it should be enjoyable and not create the stress in our life.
I sincerely believe that the key to building successfully a healthy nutrition habit is to fully onboard the person which is seeking this, by making small but firm gains, by helping to understand why she/he wants this and why will benefit from it, thus creating an enjoyable journey. Only once the foundation is solid then we can bring also the heavy artillery of formulas and nutrients cracking ( if it will be needed eventually, for those wanting to go the extra mile 😊 )
Eating healthy is easy in the end, the start might be difficult, but it pays well enough quite soon if you do it in a right but simple way.
For ages many people have considered eating as a necessary act, rather related to survival than to self-improvement.
While nowadays for most of us (unfortunately not for all, yet) eating for survival is not an actual concern anymore, how and what we eat are still not seen as a foundation for a better life, our nutrition habits being driven rather by our busy agendas, by our perceived pleasure senses and/or by what commercials are bombarding us with every day.
Now, more as before, we have tremendous amount of information on what and how to eat and armies of specialists in nutrition, dieticians and doctors, and despite that diabetes climbed in top 10 death causing worldwide disease with the highest growth rate year on year. Apparently disfunctions in how we eat (and drink), how we exercise and how we control stress, are now the main causes of getting ill worldwide.
So I started to ask myself why despite so many information at our hand nowadays people are risking their health by eating in a wrong way. I believed one reasonable explanation is that they do not know about this information. But then how comes that half a century ago people had better nutrition despite less information on how to eat? Perhaps is a mix, between not being aware of this information and the quality of the food and beverages on the market. While researches and achievements on food quality improved consistently in the last years there was indeed in parallel also a tremendous boost of low-quality food on the market. Still, the lack of awareness reason is debatable, with so many commercials and specialists on wellbeing and nutrition nowadays.
And then I realized that maybe the way of passing through the information might not be very efficient, and this is sustained by the very high rate of people which are dropping their nutrition specialist after several months (over 50%). Most of the advices received are either to complex to understand (terminology, formulas), either require a very strict discipline to implement it, or are contradictory to our living style and social habits. And many might share another characteristic: do not consider each person’s own individuality and the history behind the malnutrition.
