Nutritionist

A Nutritionist is an expert in food and nutrition, and their role is to help you achieve optimal health and wellbeing through dietary and lifestyle changes.

Our Nutritionist takes a holistic approach, which means factors in addition to diet, such as sleep, stress, physical activity are taken into consideration to provide you with an individualised plan, tailored just for you.

There is so much information available about what to eat, how to eat it and numerous diets to follow but the best way you can support your body is to find out what works for you. We are all different and the needs of our bodies change during our lifespan. A Nutritionist will take a complete medical history and spend time with you to understand how your body systems work.

In an initial consultation, you can expect a detailed discussion about you and your health journey, to fully encompass your health picture. Dietary changes are considered to be first-line in dietary management, but sometimes supplements can be indicated.

Our Nutritionists key areas of nutrition assistance are listed below:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Weight Management
  • Stress & Anxiety Management
  • Pre-conception, Pregnancy, and Lactation
  • Sports Nutrition (including Marathon & Triathlon Training)

However, our Nutritionist can also assist with general concerns, such as:

  • General Wellbeing
  • Low Energy Levels
  • Digestive Issues
  • Dietary Assessment

The journey to optimal health is not always easy, as you have to change habits, make different food choices, and even change your lifestyle. Our Nutritionist will support you to implement these changes so you can lay down the foundations to a healthier, happier life.

Our Nutritionist is a member of ANTA (16869).

Bronte Beck (Nutritionist)

Bronte is a fantastic addition to the Team at Body of Life as our new Nutritionist.  She loves seeing the positive impacts her clients can experience from implementing just a few dietary and lifestyle changes into their lives and her mission is really to teach people that healthy eating doesn’t have to be difficult!

Her favourite way to exercise has always been walking, especially when it’s with her two adorable pups! She also enjoys running, reformer Pilates, and yoga too.

Her favourite way to relax she loves cooking of course! Even before she began studying Nutrition, Bronte has always loved to cook and read recipe books, and still enjoys it!

When it comes to TV and music it’s a tough one – she can’t pick favourites as she enjoys a lot of different genres of both TV and music and her favourite quote “You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
