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 DEXA body composition scan. This will give us an accurate baseline of your body composition and we will be able to use the information from the scan to calculate your resting metabolic rate. 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 transformation accelerator membership program. This is your information and education hub, full of additional videos and written resources which is part of the program to ensure you have instant access to everything you need to achieve your health and body composition goals.
For the 12 weeks duration of the program, you will have direct line, VIP access to the dietitian. Not sure how to manage an upcoming social situation.... contact the dietitian!.... Wanting to add in a new recipe to your plan but want to double check something first... contact the dietitian! Having this distilled wisdom at your instant disposal has proven to be an exceptionally valuable education and motivation tool for our clients and will drastically decrease your learning curve and improve outcomes.
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 it in its entirety. After all this will include a shopping guide, meal plan, 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 a review DEXA body composition scan somewhere between the 6 - 8 weeks. The exact time frame will vary case-to-case, so this will be discussed in detail directly with the dietitian. The review DEXA scan 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 a scheduled face-to-face nutrition review consultation which will occur soon after the second DEXA scan. Your nutrition plan will be adjusted at this time once we have collected all the assessment data and discussed with you the next phase of the plan.
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.
