Dr Leila Dehghan is a doctor turned plant-based nutritionist and personal trainer. She received her medical degree from the University of Vienna and worked as a doctor in the UK before quitting because of her severe migraines. Her personal experience overcoming health challenges through diet shifted her professional interests to focusing on the power of nutrition. After earning eCornell’s Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate and transitioning to a whole food plant-based diet herself, she pursued a Master’s degree in Clinical and Public Health Nutrition from the University College of London. As a Registered Associate Nutritionist with a deep understanding of the relationship between diet and health, Dr. Dehghan helps others optimise their well-being, manage their weight, and prevent or recover from lifestyle diseases.
