Our Dietitian will work with you to use food to improve your health, including medical conditions. 

This can include:

  • Using Best Practice Guidelines based on nutritional science and research to form recommendations, 
  • Finding practical ways to implement change that suits you, 
  • Helping to work around challenges that may arise in order to keep working towards your goals. 

You’re welcome to bring any of the following to discuss with our Dietitian:

  • A food diary (2 weekdays and 1 weekend is enough to record),
  • Food packaging or food products,
  • Vitamin packaging.

However if you don’t have these or forget to bring them, we can always do a general food history and can look up any products online. 

Definetly not! At Nourishing Nutrition Bendigo we encourage balanced eating, which includes continuing to enjoy discretionary foods, such as chocolate and wine, in moderation. This can make it easier to continue with dietary changes long-term – after all, if we’re to create new lifestyle habits, they may as well be enjoyable! The key is moderation.  

No, we understand different people are nourished with different diets, and therefore do not use a one-size-fits all approach. We work with you to ensure your personal diet is nutritionally adequate and suits you personally. 

We do however recommend people eat food from all five food groups described in the Australian Dietary Guidelines to prevent nutritional deficiencies. 

We will usually discuss:

  • Your nutrition goals (including GP referral reasons),
  • A general pattern of what you eat and when, 
  • Considerations such as access to food during work, time, affordability etc, 
  • What foods can help achieve your goals, 
  • Strategies of how to include these foods in your week.
There is no judgement within the sesions and your personal goals, circumstances and preferences are always honoured.

Recommendations vary based on each individual person. Generally we recommend at least two appointments – the first to create your personalised nutritional goals, and a second to review progress and work through any challenges that may have arisen. 

Personalised meal plans can be provided at an additional cost after discussing your personal preferences and nutritional goals in your initial appointment. 

Of course! Review appointments can be for 60 minutes if you wish.

There are many different health conditions that can be improved with food. We use Best Practice Guidelines to form recommendations to improve specific health conditions with food.
