I graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science from The University of Newcastle NSW.  I have been an Accredited Practising Dietitian for 15 years. 

I have helped thousands of people find their food solutions and am passionate about maintaining people's love of food! 

I specialise in the area of Gastroenterology and love the nutrition detective work required to solve peoples irritable bowels, food sensitivities, allergies, inflammatory bowels and food intolerances. 

I only use evidence based techniques such as the Monash FODMAPS for IBS and the RPAH elimination diet for food sensitivities. In 2018 I completed the Advanced Training in Food Allergy and Intolerance for Dietitians through ASCIA (The Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy). 

I have completed Microba Health Professionals Training, which has given me a thorough understanding of the gut microbiome.  I also enjoy working with Microba Insight Health Reports to help patients both understand their results of their microbiome profile, and prioritise their dietary recommendations. 

I am a passionate advocate of HAES (Health At Every Size) and have trained in the "non diet approach" for healthy eating and weight concerns.  As someone who spent much of her life yo-yo dieting, it wasn't until I fully embraced the non diet approach myself that I have settled to my healthiest weight, and am no longer ruled by food! 

With mounting evidence showing that up to 95% of weight loss diets result in weight gain long term, we need to think differently about weight management. 

The evidence based and weight neutral "non diet approach" is best suited to those who have had a long history of dieting and associated problems with body image, depression, disordered eating, or weight regain.  

So whether you have a tricky tummy, or if you are ready to never diet again, I can't wait to help you love food and find your inner health, so that you can get on with living your happy healthy life! 

 

Warmest regards, 

Elissa Robins
