It has become quite common to hear people talk about how tired they are all the time, or despite religiously following a good diet and exercising regularly they cannot seem to lose weight, or they are not quite sure what exactly the right diet is or what foods are actually healthy. Unfortunately, many of us can relate to this.
There is so much information available on nutrition and what the ‘best’ diet is, but it can be very confusing and in some cases even contradict itself.
The truth is nutrition is very individual, which means everybody is different and what works for you may not necessarily work for someone else. Our food fuels our body so it is in our best interest to put in the foods our body needs. The trick is to find out what foods work for your body so you have abundant energy, are at your ideal weight and feel great after every meal.
A nutritionist takes the hard work out of figuring out what foods you should be eating. They work with you to design a plan that works with your situation, your tastes and your body. Most importantly, a nutritionist has specialised training so they can tailor your diet plan to accommodate any conditions you may have in order to get your body working at its best.
A nutrition assessment can:
- Fine tune your meal plans so they are giving your body the best energy it needs
- Help heal conditions and diseases through food, supplements and awareness
- Take the guess work out of what you should and should not be eating
- Uncover any food allergies or sensitivities
- Provide you with variety and healthy options for your food plan
- Help you understand food labels

Follow up consults are typically every 2-4 weeks, depending on each individual client and where we are at in your journey. These sessions are about addressing your challenges, celebrating your success and ensuring accountability. We will review your eating habits and work together to address challenges.
We feel very strongly about working together rather than telling you what to do. We become your partner in your journey and your ally. This is the most effective way to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes and building lifelong positive habits.
