[Podcast] Nutrition: The non-diet approach

Christina Turner – Assistant Professor at Bond University and one of the expert presenters of the HealthCert Professional Diploma of Medical Nutrition Management – delivers this engaging and interesting podcast about weight-neutral dietetics, also known as the non-diet approach.

In the podcast, Christina explains what the non-diet approach to weight management actually means and how it works.

The non-diet approach is a set of strategies that medical professionals can use to support patients in their healthcare, with an overall aim of helping patients to improve their health without necessarily changing their body weight.

The non-diet approach has a strong focus on supporting patients to eat a wide variety of foods to achieve nutritional quality, rather than prescribing meal plans or portion sizes for weight loss.

Christina also talks about some non-diet strategies including mindful eating, such as eating with our five senses, as well the Health At Every Size movement, and so much more.
