As accredited practicing dietitians we know the science of food and nutrition and are able to convey this as understandable and practical information for our clients.
We don’t lecture our clients on weight and weight loss rather we support them to let go of food guilt, fears and body shame.
We are passionate about helping people to build a more positive relationship with food and their body. Fostering a connection with hunger and satiety and listening to internal cues rather than the external fads and miracle cures that constantly bombard us.
We live in a culture so oppressive of anyone who doesn’t fit the ‘ideal’ and so confused about what Health is that we aim to provide a safe place where you can break down this information to determine what is real and what is not!
What is important for you to be doing for your health and what is important to ignore for your health!
Eat Love Live was established; to help support people to build a more healthy and helpful relationship with food and their bodies.
We are skilled in supporting people who have developed disordered eating patterns or clinical eating disorders to recover their physical and psychological health.
Weight does not equal health!
The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in its 1948 constitution as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. This highlights the importance of considering more than merely numbers such as weight, measurements or clothing size. Clinical measures such as blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose readings and other blood results can indicate health or illness; but mood, thoughts, feelings, energy, motivation, social connectedness, social interaction and sleep are also very important considerations!
Health for each individual person is going to be a little bit different as it considers all the influences on their health including their circumstances, lifestyles, family, environment, work, study etc. When working with our clients we help them to see beyond the numbers and consider all of these aspects. Most importantly we aim to move the focus off the number on the scale to health promoting behaviors and self-care.
Some of the things we may focus on to help people make this shift include:
We work closely with psychologist, psychiatrists, GP and exercise physiologist to ensure that our clients are getting all of the support they may need to better care for themselves.
Too often people judge self-worth and achievements by their weight and shape. This can often lead to increased negative thinking, poor self-esteem and even poor physical and mental health outcomes.
We work with people to be, within the realms of their genetic potential, the healthiest they can be while learning to accept, respect and appreciate their bodies.
We have all worked in these areas for many years and are still constantly learning and developing new skills to support people to work through these issues and learn to love the fabulous people that they are.

Our areas of interest are non-dieting health management, disordered eating and eating disorders and all Eat Love Live team members are experienced working with these difficult issue. We regularly undertake further learning activities to ensure we are providing optimal care to you our family
Often when we work with people who are trying to reach and maintain their most healthy body for general wellbeing, and those on the journey of recovery for an eating disorder; we find we end up discussing similar concepts. These can include body acceptance, activity for pleasure, breaking ingrained eating habits and food beliefs. As such, information on this website will focus on these things and hopefully many people will find it helpful.
We look forward to working with you soon,
Jo and The Eat Love Live Team
