Welcome to Adept Nutrition Care. My name is Louise and I am a Brisbane, Queensland-based Dietitian Nutritionist, Accredited Nutritionist and Weight Management Coach, working in Private Practice and across various Brisbane Hospitals and Health Services.

I listen and I care. Let’s work together to establish healthy eating habits that meet your health goals, budget, lifestyle and personal preferences.

SPECIALISING IN ONLINE NUTRITION APPOINTMENTS FOR BUSY PEOPLE

Dietitians are tertiary qualified in food, nutrition and dietetics. Qualified dietitians have undertaken a 4 year course of study that has included supervised and assessed professional practice in public health nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. Dietitians are also qualified to work in a private clinical practice, hospitals and the medical nutrition industry. They provide expert nutrition advice for people of all ages and prescribe dietary treatments for many conditions such as diabetes, food allergies, cancers, gastro-intestinal diseases, and overweight and obesity.

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition & Dietetics)(Hons) obtained from the Queensland University of Technology, as well as Certification in Medical Nutrition Therapy for Bariatric Surgery. I am accredited with the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) and vice-convenor of the DAA Bariatric Surgery Interest Group. I am also an Associate Member of the Australian and New Zealand Metabolic and Obesity Surgery Society (ANZMOSS) and Diabetes Queensland.

Why choose an Accredited Practising Dietitian? 

Bariatric (weight loss) surgery can give you a new lease on life but it can also be a very confusing time if you don’t know where to go for the proper support. It is not uncommon to have information overload. That is where I can help.

Bariatric Surgery Before & After

Before Surgery
  • Are you considering surgery and need to know how to best prepare?
  • Do you need some help planning your post-surgical food and drinks?
  • Are you still looking for a Surgeon?
After Surgery
  • Have you had surgery and simply want to check that you are eating right?
  • Have you had surgery and simply want to check that you are eating right?
  • Are you bored with food? Are you craving certain foods?
  • Or are you not seeing the weight loss that you were expecting and are looking for some advice to shift that plateau?
Planning on having a baby?
  • Are you planning to have a baby and want to know what your nutrition needs will be?
  • Are you nervous to gain weight during pregnancy?
You are not alone!

So, why is an expert Bariatric Dietitian an essential part of your team?

We are trained to understand the specific needs of a patient before and after surgery including how to obtain nutrients essential for good health.

We guide you through the before and after surgery dietary phases. We are aware of the nutritional implications of bariatric surgeries include the ability or inability to sufficient fuel your body with the necessary nutrients to achieve your health and weight management goals, the speed of which you can eat, the types of food you can eat, food behaviours, and liquid vs. solid meals.

We provide recommendations for food choices, portion sizes and eating behaviours, ensuring you maintain a nutritious diet specific for your choice of surgery.

We assist patients in developing practical meal ideas, menu planning and shopping, and quick and easy food preparation methods to help make their diets more interesting, enjoyable, and importantly, nutritious.

We help you to realise your weight management goals and provide techniques to help prevent weight regain. See my Services page for more detail.

I am passionate about supporting people (who have taken this big step), to achieve their goals and be as healthy as possible for the rest of their lives.

I always tailor consults to YOUR individual needs, ensuring each of my clients walk away with specialised information relating directly to their circumstances.

I consider everything from medical and nutritional needs, eating habits, food preferences, as well as your social and work life before we formulate a plan that will see you get the most out of your weight management surgery.

Knowing that some people have difficulty accessing support due to location, time or cost I offer a telehealth (phone or video) service Australia-wide.

To support you on this journey I offer a special all-inclusive Bariatric Package for clients undergoing surgery. Contact me today to ask about these packages or individual services.
