Hi! My name is Rebecca Gawthorne (aka “Nourish Naturally”) & I’m an Accredited Practising Dietitian, Accredited Nutritionist & a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia.
I love food & despite four years of studying food & nutrition at University, publishing research on health, & helping thousands of clients with their eating, it never ceases to amaze me how important healthy, nourishing food is to our bodies. Food physically becomes you! It makes up every cell in your body – your muscles, hair, skin, heart. We need to nourish our bodies with healthy, real, wholesome foods to ensure our bodies function healthily, to feel energetic and live the life we were created to.
QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE
I hold a Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics (Honours I) from the University of Wollongong. I received First Class Honours for my research conducted at the Sydney Children’s Hospital, which has been published internationally. I have a range of experience at various hospitals, health clinics and community nutrition centres across Sydney, as well as working throughout rural NSW with The Royal Flying Doctor Service as “The Flying Dietitian”. I have presented health seminars, cooking classes and I write nutrition articles for magazines, newspapers, websites & newsletters. I am also a qualified MEND Go4Fun Healthy Kids program leader and have undertaken countless additional courses on mindful eating, weight loss, chronic disease management & healthy eating.
WHAT I BELIEVE IN
I don’t believe in fad diets. I don’t believe in restriction. I don’t believe quick fixes with expensive diet pills.
I do believe in healthy eating. I do believe nourishing naturally. I do believe in fresh, real, wholesome foods that make you feel, look and live fantastic. And I also believe in treating yourself & enjoying food.
With Healthy Regards,
Rebecca Gawthorne – Dietitian & Nutritionist
