What to expect from your first appointment with your dietitian

At your initial consultation we like to really get to know you so that we can provide you with a personalised plan. We collect information about your concerns, medical history, your lifestyle habits, dietary pattern as well as your health and wellbeing goals. The whole process takes between 1- 1.5 hours depending on your health conditions and goals. By the end of your first visit, your dietitian will be able to provide you with a plan so you can get started working on your goals to improve your wellbeing.

 

What to expect from a follow Up appointment with your dietitian

Follow up appointments can be really beneficial as they allow you to check in, ask questions and ultimately will support you to achieve your goals. We do know that it can take a while to get into good habits, so keeping in contact during this process can be helpful. We will build on the information provided in your initial assessment and set further action plans with you. The number of reviews is determined by your wants and needs.

 

For clients with food intolerances, multiple sessions are required over 4-6 months. Once you have completed the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, your dietitian will take you through the re-challenge phase and then once completed can help you to formulate a diet that will accommodate your individual food intolerances. Research shows that the low FODMAP diet can alter gut microbiota even after only 4 weeks and we don't yet know the impact this can have long term. For this reason, it is really important to complete the 3 phases of the diet.

 

Reviews appointments can be booked either as a regular length (30minutes) or extended length (60minutes). Research shows that regular reviews with a dietitian assists people to keep people on track and better achieve their diet related goals compared to attempting it alone.
