THE EXPERTISE OF A DIETITIAN
Dietitians have trained at university in food and nutrition science for at least 4 years. Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) is the national credential recognized by the Dietitians Association of Australia and are the only nutritional professional regulated under Medicare. APD's must undergo annual training and learning to keep their credential. There is a lot of misinformation and confusion out there (especially on the internet) when it comes to nutrition. Dietitians act like interpreters to translate the latest research, combine it with what we already know, your goals and circumstances and provide up-to-date advice. While food trends and advice on what’s healthy will always change, dietitians listen to the research rather than trends.

Crash Diets Don’t work
We do not offer diet plans here. Most diets out there are known as ‘crash diets’. You get given a set meal plan to follow for a certain period of time, and yes during that time you will lose weight because most diets often starve your body of nutrients due to the reduced meal quantity in nature. But what happens when you stop this diet? Correct, you relapse, adding back on all that weight you just lost.
Here at Kinetic we go one step further and educate you on what you should be doing. Education is the best form of nutrition anybody could ask for. We teach you about portion control, types of foods to avoid and other little tips along the way so you understand exactly what you are putting in your mouth.
ENERGY GROWTH REPAIR STRENGTH PREVENTION
A well-balanced diet doesn’t just provide you with energy to keep active throughout the day but provides you with nutrients you need for growth, repair and helping you stay strong and healthy.
Along with keeping active, a health balanced diet helps you maintain a healthy weight and prevent diet related illnesses.
Deficiencies in some key nutrients such as vitamin (A, B, C & E), zinc, iron and selenium can weaken parts of your immune system.
The first step
An initial conversation
Not sure about how dietetics can help you? Book a 5 minute telephone consultation with our dietician to see how you can change your life.
An Initial Consultation
If you haven’t seen a dietitian before then don’t worry it’s really easy and non-intimidating. We’ve seen and heard it all before. Our goal is to help you reach yours as quickly and sustain-ably as possible.
In the initial consultations we get to know lots about you including your medical history, shopping and cooking styles and work/lifestyle habits and how these can modified to meet your goal.
We also take measurements so we can track your progress and if something isn’t working, we can adjust things so you don’t become stuck in a ‘plateau’ of non-change.
You’ll walk away from the initial consult feeling confident and motivated and provided around 3 personalised eating and lifestyle changes to make before the next review appointment.
