Initial Consultation (60 minutes)
Review Consultation (30 minutes)
Making changes to the way you eat can seem overwhelming. Review sessions with a dietitian will provide you with the ongoing support, monitoring and accountability to help you progress toward your goals. Research shows that regular sessions with a qualified dietitian/nutritionist yield far superior results, compared with trying to do it alone.
Ongoing monitoring + support
We will monitor your progress towards your goals using a variety of different measures and provide ongoing support and accountability to help you to progress toward your goals
Tailoring of Dietary Plan
We will discuss the current plan, identify any barriers towards change, develop solutions and make modifications. Then we will set short-term goals to focus on until your next review
Education + Practical Advice
Most review sessions include some structured education on topics relevant to your individual needs so that you can ultimately be an expert in your own health
The aim of the initial consultations is to conduct a thorough nutrition assessment of you as an individual so that all advice and action plans can be personalised to your unique needs.
We will undertake a review your medical history, biochemistry and medications or supplements. We will discuss your goals and if relevant, we will also take some baseline anthropometric measures
Diet & Lifestyle Assessment
We will assess your current dietary intake, eating habits, food intolerances and/or preferences. We will also discuss your lifestyle including exercise and sleep habits
Personalised Dietary Plan
Based on our assessment we will work with you to develop a personalised dietary plan. We will include this in a take home pack complete with a food diary and any other relevant resources.
