Gerlia Venter received her Bachelor of Dietetics degree from the University of Pretoria in 2015. She is registered as a dietitian with the Health Professional Council (HPCSA) as well as the Association of Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA). She also completed the CDE-OPTIFAST Training Programme, DNAlysis DNA Course and 3-Day (24 Hour) Breastfeeding Training Course for Health Care Providers in 2017. She has grown up in a family that loves, enjoys and celebrates food, but she is also concerned about health issues and following a healthy lifestyle. What inspired her to become a dietitian is that dietetics is based on science that requires the artful skill of successful implementation as well as the interaction with people. People don’t eat nutrients, they eat food and she wants to help interpret ever-evolving nutrition research into real food that people can eat and enjoy.
