Françoise Detanger, your nutritionist
"My integrative approach to nutrition is centred on the pleasure of eating well"
Francoise’s nutrition approach is based on understanding what you eat, associating physical, emotional dimensions and living conditions in order to rebalance your eating habits, but not limiting them, as the pleasure of eating well and remaining kind to yourself are keys to acquire a healthy lifestyle that best matches your requirements.
Discussing food balance with concrete facts to apply in your daily life, improving the content of your plate, highlighting the central role of pleasure around the act of eating well, learning to deal with professional/personal pressures, optimizing the notion of variety are part of your nutrition program and meals plan tailor-made by Francoise following a full assessment and close following-up.
Francoise loves to cook. She believes that taste should not be sacrificed for health which is why she loves sharing her healthy, nutrient-dense meals and dishes with friends and family.
My goal is simple and driven by my passion for nutrition: to create a bespoke program based on your health, activity level, food sensitivities, your mindset about food and your body, stress levels, diet history, and metabolic type.
We work together, in complete confidentiality, discussing food balance with concrete facts, implementing a full assessment and close following-up in order to define your goals and implement them.
I inspire my clients to become better versions of themselves by teaching them to become the expert on their own body.
I help clients to regain and maintain an ideal weight stopping doing the yo-yo,
to regulate transient digestive disorders (bloating, gastric reflux, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, food intolerance/ allergies) or digestive pathologies (Inflammatory Bowel Disease IBD, Crohn's disease),
to control weight at menopause,
to regain a good vitality in case of fatigue, burnout,
to accompany pathologies such as diabetes, thyroid diseases, chronic cardiovascular diseases, cancers, articular pathologies, renal failure, osteoporosis

From a first professional life to a vocational retraining:
Originally from a family where the pleasure of eating and eating well is an “art de vivre”, my story has contributed to my vision of nutrition. Living, working and educating three children for the past 20 years in Asia Pacific, I have embraced the mix of cultures, mix of cooking styles & products, facing the challenge of how to best feed my family with a busy life, like many parents.
With a scientific framework, I have always been interested in chemistry, biochemistry, enzymology, and physiology, so I took the opportunity of living in Sydney to go back to my first love: Sciences, to study Nutrition during 2 years at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies, part of Torrens University Australia.
Now in Hong Kong, after working in a variety of industries, in this difficult context of pandemic, I’ve made the choice of giving back to society, which I’ve started by volunteering at The Feeding Hong Kong Foodbank providing food to those in urgent needs in Hong Kong.
Caring and competency being part of my moto, I’ve also committed myself to a double certification in Nutrition Science, graduating at Stanford University- Centre for Health Education, California USA and at the European
Academy of Nutrition, Bruxelles earlier this year.
Being trained with three different visions, Australian, American, French, in both English and French, it has been a great opportunity for me to both develop scientific skills and confront different international opinions, a key point as nutrition is a science constantly evolving.
Thanks to Stanford University, I have permanent access to international clinical studies databases such as National Library of Medicine, The National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S, as it’s crucial for me to continuously update and deepen my knowledge.
