• What Does A Melbourne Sports Nutritionist Do?

    A sports nutritionist is a specialised field which involves an in-depth understanding of the human body and how foods affect our performance, particularly relating to sports and fitness. This kind of knowledge can completely change how athletes train, but everyone can benefit from a consultation with a nutritionist.

    What Does A Melbourne Sports Nutritionist Do?

    For many people across Melbourne, the cost of poor nutrition can take its toll. Many people are completely unaware of the effect that their food decisions have on their wellbeing, and how much proper diet could boost their energy and mood. Our fantastic nutritionist, Nina, has experience advising nutrition for fitness, but her skill sets broaden out to include many other aspects of health and wellbeing.

     

    Nutritionists are so valuable because they can treat a cause, rather than a symptom. For example, someone who struggles with fatigue could be prescribed various pills and potions to try to alleviate this; However, Nina’s approach is to focus in on any dietary causes that may be aggravating the person’s energy levels. This may be an intolerance or a deficiency, which can easily be addressed by finding the perfect addition of healthy foods to your existing diet.

    While you may think that a nutritionist’s first move is to cut out all your favourite foods and put you on a strict ‘diet’, this isn’t usually the case. Nutritionists understand that food is a choice and that humans tend to respond poorly when they feel as though they don’t have that choice, and it is very difficult to make a complete diet overhaul instantly. Instead, nutritionists like Nina discuss your lifestyle with you to find achievable alternatives that will fit your daily routines, and that won’t leave you hungry or dissatisfied.

     

    Our Kaya nutritionist specialises in gut health, food intolerances, hormonal irregularities, adrenal exhaustion, food-mood cycles, anxiety and depression, weight management headaches, insomnia, and stretch therapy.

    Do You Need To See A Nutritionist?

    Here are some of the symptoms which may alert you to imbalances in your nutrition that a nutritionist could help you with.

    • Your bowel movements are irregular
    • You struggle with weight management
    • You suffer heartburn or acid reflux
    • You’ve hit a speedbump, such as a lifestyle or physical change, and you feel as though your diet could need a tidy-up
    • Your mood and energy are difficult to manage or predict, and you feel as though your quality of life could be improved
