What is Nutrition and Why is it Important? Nutrition is the science of foods and nutrients necessary for nourishment, growth, health and wellbeing. A well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet is essential for maintaining the health of our bodies, protecting us against illness, and optimal physical performance and functioning. It is important that we value food as the body’s primary fuel and nutrient source and understand how healthy a diet will contribute to good health. Diets that lack essential nutrients can increase someone’s risk of developing a range of health problems. Additionally, diets that are high in kilojoules, saturated fat, sugar and salt can contribute to excess weight gain and a higher risk of developing chronic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

Who should see a nutritionist? Anyone can benefit from seeing a nutritionist, whether you are seeking to lose or control your weight, manage a lifestyle or diet related disease, or simply improve your general overall health and wellbeing. It is common for people seeking dietary improvements to have limited knowledge about what to eat, how to eat these foods, and why they are essential for good health and wellbeing. Other barriers people may face are a lack of time, a lack of skill and ability with cooking, or a lack of interest and motivation. Nutritionists can help with this. They can offer their clients evidence based guidance and support on food related matters and a diet program necessary for them to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle and achieve their specific diet/health related goals.

What our customers say
Listen to what our customers say about our service.
Before I saw Georgie I was always feeling tired, skipping meals and hopeless at meal prepping. Today I feel healthy, energised and more knowledgeable about my own nutrition. My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t enjoy the recipes on offer, but I absolutely loved the fact the recipes were fully personalised to me and what I like, simple and delicious – My personal fav is the Oat and Berry Smoothie! The service I received was second to none, and I cannot recommend GGNutrition enough!Kellie
