Hala Barghout earned her B.Sc. in Nutrition and Dietetics from the American University of Beirut in 2005. She is a Dubai based registered clinical dietitian who has been educating people about health and nutrition for almost 9 years; working towards reaching them through health centers, beauty centers, corporations, and fitness centers. She has also given lectures to kids and teenagers at fitness centers and various private schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. In addition, she has also been on TV shows educating people through media and taking part in weight loss challenges.
She believes that by educating children about health and nutrition at an early age, we can help fight the obesity epidemic that is spreading all over the world, particularly in the Middle East.
Her training at a Governmental Hospital in Dubai after her graduation exposed her to many clinical nutritional cases. This made her truly understand the importance of food as medicine. She gained a lot of knowledge on weight problems and weight challenges, expanded her knowledge on sports nutrition, and improved her communication and listening skills.
Hala plans to continue to increase health awareness across the community and educate people on reading food labels and taking them on healthy grocery shopping tours.
