Prior to coming along to your 1st appointment 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 you come to the initial consultation. There will still be additional information we will need to discuss with you, but this way we do not waste valuable time collecting information that you can easily send to us before hand.
You will have a comprehensive body composition assessment using validated anthrometric techniques by a highly skilled anthropometrist. This will give us an accurate baseline of your body composition and we will be able to use the information to calculate your energy and macronutrient requirements. This information plays an important role in developing your nutrition plan and accurately tracking your changes over time.
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).
After your initial consultation, you will be sent your login details to join the online resource hub. This is your information and education hub, full of additional resources to ensure you have instant access to everything you need to achieve your health and body composition goals.
To develop a valuable, personalised plan that can be incorporated in to your lifestyle and family needs, we need around 48 hours after the initial consultation to develop the initial nutrition phase. After all this will include a meal plan and recipes etc so a lot 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)!
You will have review body composition assessments at week 4 and week 8. The review body composition assessment allows us to accurately track how your body composition is progressing. This information will then help to inform how your nutrition plan should be adjusted to ensure you maximise your results.
During the intensive transformation program you will have scheduled face-to-face nutrition review consultations at week 4 and week 8. The next phases of your nutrition plan will be developed following each of these appointments once we have collected all the assessment data and discussed with strategy with you.
Upon completion of the Nutrition Melbourne Intensive Transformation Program many clients choose to continue having regular ongoing review consultations with the dietitian. We offer discounted maintenance programs for clients who have completed the initial phase of the Transformation Program. If you would like ongoing support and accountability the frequency of reviews is entirely up to you. This is best discussed directly with the dietitian.
