Vegan diets, gut health, weight loss surgery and eating disorders

Kiah Paetz is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and is the owner and principal of Plant Nutrition and Wellness, a Brisbane-based private dietitian practice. 





As an expert in food and nutrition, Kiah translates evidenced-based scientific information into personalised, practical advice to help every client reach their goals in health and nutrition. She has a comprehensive understanding of the interplay between food, human biochemistry and  how this plays a pivotal role in health, wellbeing and the prevention of chronic disease.  


As a vegan, Kiah holds a strong passion for plant-based nutrition and its role in the prevention and management of chronic disease. Although she will never advocate for her client to go completely vegan (unless the client desires to) she strongly encourages everyone to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet for health, wellbeing, and the prevention of chronic disease. 


Kiah is passionate about working with patients overcome disordered eating and undergoing weight loss surgery, and currently works alongside a number of specialists in these areas. She also holds a strong interest in the dietary management of endometriosis, having been published in Endometriosis 101: For the significant other by Dr Graham Tronc in early 2020.
