Keeping your diet in check with a Dietitian and getting tailored exercise guidance from a Personal Trainer is the best thing you can do to look after yourself and feel great!
However, nothing worthwhile is ever easy. Working with a Dietitian or Personal Trainer is not just a once-off visit. It involves investing time and energy outside the appointments and commitment to review appointments for reassessment, education, motivation and support over months to possibly years to see results you desire. Nutrition consults usually get more spaced out over time, initially 2 weekly, then monthly, 2-3 monthly, then 6 monthly.
Most people we see think they know what they need to do but actually putting it into practise is where they need help which is exactly what we are here for. So if you feel you need help with changing your eating habits, that is the perfect time to ask for it.
We also understand addressing your eating habits can be an emotional journey, so please remember we are here to support you, not judge you, and we are here for you as much or as little as you need.
As a preventative health care measure keeping your diet in check and keeping your body moving is much easier, more enjoyable, rewarding, life-enhancing, as well as more time and cost-effective in the long term than managing chronic diseases such as heart disease or diabetes, which involve attending specialist appointments (endocrinologists, cardiologists etc. as well as a dietitian and exercise specialist) and taking medications. Furthermore, early dietary and exercise management will greatly minimise disease progression and the need for more medications if already diagnosed.
Consultation topics addressed will vary on your needs but most often include:
healthy eating, foods and nutrients to meet your body’s nutrition requirements
learning how food affects your health condition and what is best to eat
portion sizes and portion control
label reading of food products
hunger and satiety management
tackling emotional or comfort eating and sugar cravings
successful goal setting and action planning
Whether it is beating your personal best in your sport, running after your grandchildren or managing your health conditions. You can make it happen with the right support. If you want that commitment to achieve the results you desire, please consider our nutrition consult and training packages.
An initial nutrition consult involves a nutrition assessment, receiving evidence-based nutrition advice and goal setting to help you put dietary changes into practice.
Review consults will assess the progress you have made, give you further support, motivation and education about how to make changes to your diet to help you reach your health and lifestyle goals. Phone and video consults are also available.
