What to expect
During your initial assessment your dietitian will go through all relevant information such as your medical & social history, medication and supplement regime, your current lifestyle, weight history, any gut or digestion issues you may struggle with, and of course you’re eating habits & dietary preferences. You may like to use a food diary to record a few days of your usual eating and drinking habits for convenience. Please bring along any additional doctor reports or blood tests you think may be necessary.

- Evidenced based and up-to date nutrition advice

- A plan to assist with achieving your goal
