I would lose weight but always regain it—plus more.

I'd 'eat well' during the day but ate all the foods I wasn't allowed after dinner—often when no one was looking. Maybe you can relate.

The more I tried to 'be good' so I would weigh less, the harder it became. 

I was put on my first diet when I was 11 years old. 

I spent the next decade yo-yo dieting while becoming more obsessed with my weight.

So instead of listening to all the so-called wellness gurus with their detoxes, fads, and meal plans—which were really restrictive diets in disguise—I decided to try a different approach.

I stopped counting calories and obsessively weighing myself. I ate healthy foods that fueled my body and exercised for enjoyment. Slowly, my world began to change.

I realised I didn’t want to give up 95% of my life to weigh 5% less. 

My inevitable breaking point came in 2011 while trying on clothes in front of a changing room mirror. 

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.

And I want the same the same for you. There’s a much better alternative to dieting—no rules or restrictions required (thank goodness)!

Today, I’m a TV dietitian known as The Nude Nutritionist. Unlike traditional nutritionists, I won’t give you some silly one-size-fits-all meal plan.

I can’t offer you a quick fix, but I can offer evidence-based health strategies that actually work.

I finally felt normal around food and comfortable in my body. 

With the right approach, I improved my relationship with food and healed my binge eating habits by embracing intuitive eating.

As Seen On

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

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