  • Should people living with arthritis go gluten-free or avoid night-shade vegetables?

Speakers


Lalitha TaylorLalitha Taylor is a University of Alberta alumna and an award-winning dietitian. Based in Edmonton, Lalitha has been practicing as a dietitian for 16 years. She has a diverse dietetic background with dynamic communications skills which has allowed her to engage in various media outlets including her former role as a National Spokesperson for Dietitians of Canada. She is currently the nutrition columnist for CBC Radio Edmonton.

Lalitha has strayed from how she practiced in her early dietetic career, when she focused on weight loss and diets, and has moved towards a different health narrative. She's learned that positive behaviour change happens when the focus moves away from weight and more towards other factors of health and well-being. She embraces getting curious and reflective with her clients about their self-care, thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This health approach has also been beneficial to Lalitha, who has been living with rheumatoid arthritis for over 20 years.
