What you can expect from your 1 on 1 nutrition consult
The consults costs AU$75. Upon booking you will receive an online form to complete requesting information about your diet and health concerns via email. Please attach any blood tests or medical history that may be relevant. You will also receive a three day food journal template that will need to be completed and assessed prior to the appointment. All appointments are 45 minutes on zoom and include a follow up guide summarising the main points from our consult. You will also receive 2 week follow up email or call. Appointments discuss dietary changes, previous blood tests/labs and potential supplementation requirements.
After years of struggling with my own hormonal problems, food anxiety, food aversions, poor appetite and a history of extreme fussy eating, I understand how difficult dietary changes can be to make. My approach is slow and gentle, offering guidance and evidence based information for dietary and nutrition choices that help to support the unique physiology of the female body.
My training is in nutrition science and reproductive endocrinology. As I am not a nutritionist or dietician, I do not offer any strict food plans or regimes to follow. Slow and gentle changes are the most suitable for supporting female metabolism and physiology and are most likely to result in long-term sustainable change. My approach is to empower you with the knowledge you need to make the food choices that are right for you, while gently supporting you along the way. I was unable to fully learn to enjoy, be satisfied and receive health from my food without healing my own relationship with food first. My approach is mindful of your own relationship with food and takes into account the unique challenges you may be facing when approaching food.
Although I am predominantly plant-based you do not need to be plant-based to work with me, nor will I expect you to become plant-based. You can however expect me to recommend different plant-foods that may be useful in assisting the gut microbiome and hormone balance on the whole. Due to my own health struggles, I am unable to take any conventional supplementation. For this reason, I strongly believe in a food first approach. In the situations where supplementation is required I have found whole-food based products made of different food powders that in my opinion are safer and superior to conventional supplements. If needed I can recommend these supplements when appropriate.
I hope that the hundreds of recipes in my blog, Instagram and book can also be a source of inspiration to you in our consults.
