This week in clinic - bad advice

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Feb 12, 12:04 PM in . No comments.

This week in clinic, I have been shocked to hear some of the old fashioned and non-evidence based dietary information that some of my clients have been getting from their friends and from their local clinics. Some of this is just plain old bad advice.

A quick note from the clinic room

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 22, 10:23 AM in and . No comments.

Every now and then, I see some common themes coming from my clinics.
This week, the main thing I am noticing is that the health of so many people is suffering because they are not taking time for themselves. Many people are working hard, with disrupted schedules and lifestyle and don’t take the time to nourish themselves.

Kids sick of sandwiches? - lunchbox "spruce up"

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Aug 29, 02:32 PM in and . No comments.

School starts up again next week where I am. That means school lunches for another year. I do a packed lunch for my son.
Have your kids ever groaned when you’ve mentioned what kind of sandwiches were in their packed lunch? My son has. Now my sandwiches aren’t THAT bad, (really, they aren’t), it’s just that sometimes we all can get a little sick of sandwiches or wraps every single day.

The importance of eating together

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Apr 9, 09:53 AM in . Comments [1].

As a Dietitian, my mission is to help people to eat better. This usually means talking about what foods to eat, how much and when. The truth is, though, eating well isn’t always just about the nutrients, it’s about HOW we eat too. The environment that we eat in and eating together, in company, also has a huge effect on health and well being.
Most of us take eating together for granted but the simple act of sharing a meal is a greater one than we imagine. Food is so much more than just fuel. It’s a fundamental part of our health, relationships, culture and well-being. Eating together is about coming together; about belonging.

Why your Dietitian really needs you to fill in that food diary

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jun 5, 01:11 PM in and . No comments.

They are a pain, yeah I know, right, but your Dietitian may give you a food diary to complete between visits. This is very likely if you are starting a low FODMAP elimination diet for IBS or an elimination diet for food intolerance testing but you could be asked to complete one of these for many other reasons. We don’t just give these as instruments of torture… honestly! There is a reason behind asking you to complete these and a very good reason to ask you to….please, oh please….fill them out as best as you can. They don’t have to be perfect, just give it your best shot.

The Non Diet Approach - the weight neutral approach to dietary management

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jun 4, 03:49 PM in and . Comments [2].

One of the most challenging and, perhaps, polarising concepts for Dietitians at this time would be the emergence of weight neutral approaches to dietary management. For an outcome focussed profession, trained in the quantitative skills of energy requirement calculations and “diet plans”, the potential change in this focus to a weight neutral approach can be one that is either readily embraced or rejected as a “step too far”. Weight loss currently remains the primary recommendation for health improvement in individuals with high body mass index (BMI) despite limited evidence of long-term success. Weight neutral approaches have now emerged as a result of building evidence that “dieting” with a weight loss goal does not result in significant health improvements, regardless of weight changes. (1,2) and that dieting as a weight loss strategy proves unsuccessful in terms of long term maintenance.
