About Nutrition

You know when McDonald’s starts offering salads with their Big Macs that a paradigm has well and truly shifted. Our sedentary lifestyles, coupled with a reliance on the energy-spiking merry-go-round of processed junk foods, have seen us facing some scary statistics. Just recently, the Australian Health Survey of 2011-12 found that two thirds of Australian adults and a quarter of our children are either overweight or obese.

Experts say that maintaining a healthy body is 80 per cent nutrition and 20 per cent exercise – so with diabetes and obesity epidemics on our hands, it’s no surprise that nutritionists are in high demand. If helping others to maintain a healthy lifestyle appeals to you, then you’ve picked the right time to make a difference.

There are many kinds of ways that you can make an impact as a nutritionist or dietitian. You could work in the booming health and fitness industry, offering counselling to individual clients or conducting research. The last few years have seen an increased need for community-based nutrition programs and public health campaigns, so there are many opportunities.
