Ashleigh thank you so much for putting together such an interesting and tasty meal plan for me...you really break the mould of boring diet food. I'm loving the easy recipes and learning so much about food in the process. My heartburn is gone, my sugar levels stabilised and I am feeling really good.

Why Visit A Dietitian? 

A dietician is an expert nutritionist and health coach that can help with all of your nutrition needs. A dietitian is not just a weight management specialist but can assist with any health condition where nutrition plays a role. In fact, nutritional interventions are recognised as complementary therapies to almost every ailment or illness.

Ashleigh will help you clear up any misconceptions about popular diets and will explain how to make food and various diet regimes work to your advantage, using evidence-based practices and while still enjoying your food! Ashleigh takes your personal preferences and goals into account to help you find the ideal diet for your body type and dietary needs.

Ashleigh On Health

Health is not just about preventing disease and living a longer and more vital life. Health is one of the gateways to your personal freedom. Without optimum health, you cannot experience love, joy and prosperity to its fullest. Good health gives you that extra freedom and energy to embrace all that life has to offer. Wellness comprises physical, mental and emotional aspects of health and it is not about being the leanest, or fittest person on the block. It is more about being the best you that you can be, given your strengths and your limitations. Getting well requires adjusting your lifestyle, which requires commitment and change, which is why people often choose someone like a dietitian to support them on this often bumpy journey.

Ashleigh is really awesome. She teaches you how to think about food and not use your emotions. She gives you tools on what works best to fuel your body to ensure you achieve the nutrition goals you are aiming for. I am so impressed and happy with the results~Luyanda S

Ashleigh has an incredible wealth of knowledge and is an expert in her field. She really incorporates such a personal touch in to daily living and has a vested interest in her patients. A true inspiration and role model~Lisa N

I struggled with weight fluctuation for a long time. I was a little overweight for my height. Blaming it on laziness, a little depression, overworking - 9-5 and studying. Every excuse I could think of. I came across her on Discovery website but there were so many dieticians to chose from. I’m so happy I went with Ashleigh! After paying for personal trainers and meals plans this was my last option. Ashleigh didn’t give me dry chicken, egg whites and broccoli to eat all day but listened to food that I enjoyed and altered it a bit. I am not yet where I wanna be but I am one step closer. Laziness can become an addiction that can affect more areas of your life than you realize. Thank you Ashleigh!~ Angelique J

If you need help with weight loss and you need someone to guide you with care and kindness Ashleigh is the one. After failing at all other attempts I finally ended up with Ashleigh and for the first time I have hope again that I can do this. She teaches you that it’s not just about the eating plan but also one’s relationship with food. Thanks Ashleigh for changing my life and helping me to build confidence in myself again~R. Daniel
