A nutritionist is a health professional who specialises in food and nutrient intake, behaviour change and the treatment of specific diseases and conditions. Nutritionists are university trained and accredited, and their services are covered by Medicare, private health insurance, DVA and NDIS rebates. They provide expert advice on eating and lifestyle habits that are healthy and suited to the client’s body, lifestyle, needs and goals. Unlike a personal trainer, a nutritionist does not offer overnight weight loss and instead focuses on the formation of long term habits that can be sustained over time.
As a nutritionist, Diane has a passion for helping her clients reach their health and fitness goals through food. She is experienced in managing medical conditions including diabetes, hypertension, gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, Coeliac disease, food intolerances and disordered eating. Her clinical experience includes individual and group dietary therapy, education, and resource development.
She is also an Accredited Practising Dietitian, and Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician (CEDC). Emma recognises that a positive relationship with food is essential to overall wellness, and she works closely with her clients to build intuitive eating skills that are sustainable over the long term. Emma is available for virtual/telehealth consultations throughout Australia.
Emily’s approach is a holistic one, assessing and discussing all aspects of the client’s diet and lifestyle. This may include reviewing any medical concerns, training history and current training program, stress levels, sleep patterns, energy levels, hydration and nutritional deficiencies. She will then use this information to create a tailored nutrition plan. This may include personalised meal planning, creating flexible dietary goals, nutrition education or prescribing an elimination diet such as FODMAPs.
The first appointment with a Nutritionist Melbourne will involve a discussion of the client’s diet and lifestyle, with emphasis placed on understanding the client’s hunger awareness, eating behaviours and any eating disorders. A personalised meal plan and any required supplements will be outlined at this stage. Follow up appointments will focus on monitoring progress and addressing any difficulties or questions that the client may have.
