A thorough assessment in your your first appointment is essential. This includes:

  • Assess your nutrition needs based on your medical history,  lifestyle and training schedule
  • Review your normal eating patterns, dietary intake and symptoms
  • Agree realistic goals that will contribute to your performance and body composition needs. 
  • Assess your current motivation and barriers to change
  • Understand your food preferences to help us tailor our advise
  • Review your weight and dieting history

Your initial appointment is 45-60 mins long. After the assessment, we will create personalised eating strategies and meal plans targeted towards your performance and body composition goals. This plan will be discussed with you in a brief face to face appointment or via telehealth to ensure it is a great fit for you. 

To help ensure this is as thorough assessment as possible please download and complete our diet and Symptom Assessment form using the button below. You can download to your computer and fill in electronically or print it out and fill it in.

Review appointments

The review appointments usually cover 1 or 2 topics or dietary changes. These may include:

  • An explanation of why the changes will help
  • Lists of the best foods to choose
  • Eating plans to help you put the advice into action.

As you progress we review what went well and the areas you found challenging. Then we work with you to find further strategies to try. 

A word about change. If changing your habits were easy, then you wouldn’t be here (reading this). Change is hard for most human beings. Especially change that may take some patience before you start to see results. We know from evidence and experience that small consistent changes which you build upon over time are the ones that are most likely to ‘stick’.  If the change you are planning is too big or unrealistic for you right now, then you may well be setting yourself up to fail (which can leave you feeling a little unmotivated – we have all been there!). 

At My Nutrition Clinic we will set you up with a plan and keep adjusting it as you progress.  This ensures you develop the the lifelong behaviours and habits that will see you reach your goals… and stay there!!
