Non-Diet Nutrition | Melbourne | Geelong

At Balance and Bite, our Dietitians draw on years of experience creating tailored plans to help you achieve sustainable results. We listen to your challenges and work together to develop realistic goals focusing on changing ingrained lifestyle habits to improve your health and your life.

What is a non-diet dietitian?

We are weight and food neutral. We come from a place of inclusiveness, helping people of all shapes and sizes find health and wellness with an emphasis on behaviours rather than weight. 

Our goal is to empower clients to trust their bodies to make the best decisions for their own health.

When to consider the non-diet approach?

  • If you’ve been “yo-yo” dieting for several years with little to no success.
  • If you’re constantly thinking about what you should eat rather than what you want to eat.
  • If you feel like you’re already eating healthy however still worry about what your body looks like
  • If you feel like you’ve tried everything to fix your eating habits and body. 

Hi, I’m Erin, 

Accredited Practising Dietitian with curious mistrust for the “wellness industry”. Over the past 8 years working as a Dietitian, I’ve worked with hundreds of people to improve their health. From babies with cow’s milk allergies to cancer patients and, of course, people wanting to lose weight. That’s where this journey started. Fed up with Doctors getting anger over me not weighing patients and the disheartened faces on patients faces when they had not reached that ‘target weight’ despite a dramatic improvement in health behaviours. I now work with women in particular who have struggled for years with body image, fat stigma and a disordered pattern of eating. 

 

How I can help you

Every woman I see has the answers within them. My role is to empower, educate and facilitate the journey to find them find these answers. It all starts with creating a safe and non-judgmental environment because, let’s face it, delving into diet culture, weight stigma, and behaviour change is scary stuff.

I’ve set Balance and bite up in a results-driven way, which is why we don’t offer single sessions. Behaviour change takes time and sufficient support to facilitate the necessary changes to kick diet culture in the ass. 

Let’s chat for a minute (or 15)

Life’s expensive, before you spend another cent on another wellness program let’s make sure you’re going to get you what you’re after. That’s what these “discovery” calls are about, more for you than me. Book at the time that works for you and I’ll give you buzz.
