About Rebecca

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.

My vision is to create a healthier Australia, a healthier world. And that all starts with YOU! I want to motivate YOU! Inspire YOU! Enable & empower YOU with knowledge & skills to nourish YOUR body, love your body and make changes for the best.


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.


As an Accredited Practising Dietitian & Accredited Nutritionist, I use the latest scientific evidence to develop personalised eating plans to help you reach your goals. There is no “one plan fits all” approach. Every eating plan I make is individualized because I understand you have a life – family, work, sport, stress, emotions, feelings, food likes & dislikes. So I tailor everything specifically to YOU, whatever your lifestyle. I will provide you with expert nutrition & dietary advice with easy ways to eat healthier & achieve your goals faster.

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.


Having worked in numerous hospitals throughout NSW, helping terminally ill patients & those suffering with severe complications from chronic disease, plus conducting research on food & cancer, I realised I wanted to use my knowledge & skills to help prevent people from suffering.

In Australia, diet-related chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes & some forms of cancer are major causes of death & disability. And yet, these chronic diseases are largely preventable through healthy eating, healthy lifestyle and being a healthy weight. So I established Rebecca Gawthorne – Dietitian & Nutritionist to help you to live healthy.

I would love to help YOU become the healthiest version of yourself! I want to help YOU eat healthy, motivate YOU, inspire YOU, enable & empower YOU with to nourish YOUR body and live the life YOU were created for.
