Prior to coming along to your initial consultation we will send you a food diary and pre-consultation questionnaire to complete.
You will return this to us before the appointment preferably at least 24 hours before. This gives us time to do a lot of the assessment component before your appointment. There will be additional information we need to discuss with you at the initial consultation but this saves time so we can start developing your dietary plan and healthy eating recommendations almost straight away.
During the initial consultation we collect some additional important information, discuss our assessment, your goals and then get on to developing a plan that will work for YOU (and your family)
To develop a valuable, personalised plan and recommendations that can be incorporated in to your lifestyle and family needs, we need around 48 hours after the initial consultation to develop it in its entirety. After all this will include a meal plan, recipes etc so a fair bit of work needs to be done.
Once we have sent you the plan we encourage you to have a thorough read, contact us if there is anything that you would like clarification on, and then get shopping (and eating)!
At your review consultation (approx. 6 weeks), we assess progress, make any necessary adjustments and provide some structured education on important areas of healthy eating. Frequency and number of reviews varies depending on your individual needs. This is best discussed directly with the dietitian.
