Looking around over the winter months, we’ve noticed many people who, at the end of the summer were pleasingly plump, have trimmed down considerably. In some cases the change seems miraculous.

The force behind these changes is Olga Maridaki, the young woman whose photo is above. A dietician by training, Olga has set up a consulting clinic here in Skopelos (near the elementary school playground – on the corner opposite the Triandafylos bakery).

Olga consults on diet and lifestyle, and suggests individual strategies to help people achieve their goal.
