Pooja is passionate about improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities. Her mission is to empower and motivate her clients to achieve their health goals. She believes, when it comes to nutrition, there is no one-size-fits-all! She works with each client to develop individualised and realistic nutrition strategies as per their individual requirements, preferences, lifestyle and budget.
Her food philosophy is: Rather focusing on subtracting, think about what foods you can add to your diet to achieve the healthy balance! She has a special interest in plant-based nutrition, weight management, pre-during and post pregnancy nutrition, chronic disease management, malnutrition, gut health and bariatric surgery support.
In Australia, Dietitian is a protected title, governed by the regulating body Dietitians Australia. Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university-qualified nutrition professionals, who provide a range of evidence-based nutrition services, dietary counseling, medical nutrition therapy and much more. APDs also undertake ongoing training and education programs each year, to ensure they provide the most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information.
In a world full of nutrition misinformation, false promises and quick-fixes … trust and APD to provide evidence-based Medical Nutrition Therapy.
