Everyone needs good nutrition for a healthy and enjoyable life. What each of us eats during the day has immediate as well as long term effects on our mind and body. Eating well can help to make you look and feel great.
Dietitians are university-qualified experts in nutrition and dietetics. They have the skills and training to provide food and nutrition advice to meet individual health and lifestyle needs.
Anyone can have a one-on-one session with a dietitian. At a session you can expect the dietitian to assess your healthy body weight and your diet by conducting a diet history (a record of what you usually eat). After making this assessment the dietitian will give you personalised advice for optimising your diet according to your needs.
A dietitian can provide personalised advice on many issues, including general healthy eating; healthy eating for children, adolescents, adults and elderly; weight loss; weight gain, high cholesterol / hyperlipidaemia; cardiovascular disease; diabetes (type 1, type 2, gestational); intestinal disorders (IBS, Crohns, Coeliac); food intolerance; renal disease and liver disease.
