DIETITIAN | NUTRITIONIST
OUR DIETITIAN & NUTRITIONIST SERVICE
Our Dietitians at South Yarra Spine & Sports Medicine (SYSSM) are trained to help you separate fact from fiction and give you practical advice to achieve your optimal self. We are trained to give food and nutrition advice to help improve your general health, or tailor plans for specific sporting activities.
During your initial appointment, we will talk through your medical conditions (if appropriate), symptoms you would like to resolve, work/family/training commitments, body composition goals and health/nutrition goals. We will then go through your current eating patterns. Using this background information, we will provide strategies to help achieve your goals and a meal plan to get you started.
This will be followed up with a review consultation, when we will discuss what strategies worked and which need refining. We may need to tweak your meal plan or you may choose to work on other aspects of your diet altogether.
