See FAQs below for what you can expect out of your Dietetics consult.
What is a dietitian?
Dietitians are university trained nutrition experts who use evidence-based information to provide personalised advice.
What does a dietitian do?
Dietitians use their expertise in nutrition to promote and improve health and to assist in the prevention and treatment of diseases in individuals and communities.
What is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?
In Australia there is a distinction made between dietitians and other occupations in the nutrition and food science field, including that of nutritionist.
The key difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist is that, in addition to or as part of their qualification in human nutrition, a dietitian has undertaken a course of study that included substantial theory and supervised and assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.
Therefore, in Australia, all dietitians are considered to be nutritionists however, nutritionists without a dietetics qualification cannot take on the specialised role of a dietitian. - Dietitians Association of Australia
What to expect in your appointment
Your first session with a dietitian will last around one hour and will involve a lot of talking. The dietitian may or may not weigh you, depending on your own unique situation and goals.
It’s important to understand that a dietitian is there to help you, not to judge you or try to suck the joy out of your life by making you stick to a strict and punishing diet. We want you to be able to enjoy the food you love while still working towards your nutrition goals – this is our ultimate aim. For this reason, we base our recommendations on your own likes and dislikes, and your individual lifestyle so that we can be sure that our advice will work for you and can be maintained for life.
