Can I share my story with you?

Maybe you can relate…

I was first sent to a nutritionist when I was 11 years old. I was given a meal plan (aka a diet) to follow. I was weighed to check my progress.

I spent the next decade going from dietitian to nutritionist - becoming more obsessed with my weight.

The more I tried to 'be good' so I would weigh less, the harder it became. I would lose weight but always regain it - plus more.

I'd 'eat well' during the day but end up eating all the foods I wasn't allowed after dinner - often when no one was looking.

It felt like every Monday I was starting again from scratch.

"I tried every diet, plan and program out there. They never worked".

Instead of helping, dieting made me feel crazy around food! I even started binge eating, which made me feel like a failure.

The (inevitable) breaking point came for me in 2011, standing in front of a change room mirror while trying on clothes.

I realised. . I didn't want to spend the rest of my life obsessed with trying to weigh less and hating my body. I wanted food to become just food again not something that was 'good' or 'bad.

So instead of listening to all the so-called wellness gurus with their detoxes, activated bits-and-bobs and 'healthy lifestyle plans' (that were really just restrictive diets in disguise', I decided to try an easy, gentler and ultimately - much better - approach.

I stopped counting points, calories. and weighing myself. For the first time in my life, I only did exercise for enjoyment- not as punishment for eating. And my world started to change.

I didn't change dramatically overnight. The changes were gradual - but long lasting. With the right approach, I ended up completely changing my relationship with food. I learned how to stop binge eating and learned to listen to my body instead of diet noise.

"I finally felt normal around food. And comfortable in my body.”

I ended up losing 20kg but this turned out to be just an added bonus. Now I have so much more head space to think of things other than food.

There is a much better alternative to dieting - no rules or expensive superfoods needed (thank goodness)!

I'm a dietitian and a nutritionist. And because of my personal experience, I won't give you some silly one-size-fits-all meal plan.

I don't want you to struggle with food - or sacrifice 95% of your life to weight 5% less. I want to help you feel good in your body.

I can't offer you a quick fix. Those don't work. But what I do is based on evidence and it works. So let me - how can I help you?

While I don't see clients one-on-one, I do have my brilliant Back to Basics App as well as Keep It Real Program, if you want help to stop binge eating. Or read my book The Nude Nutritionist!

I'm also a Media Nutritionist + Dietitian

The best way to drown out nutrition nonsense is to be louder, right?

I love being a media nutritionist and dietitian because it means I get to reach way more people than just my mum.

I'm pretty darn lucky to be a regular nutritionist on Channel 9's TODAY show and I also provide comment for Australia's biggest publications like news.com.au, body+soul, The Daily Telegraph etc.

Let's be honest. There's a lot of misinformation out there.

As an Australian TV dietitian and media nutritionist, I get to help drown out the wellness wankery with common sense and scientific data.
