COVID-19:

I am available for virtual consultations daily and for “face to face” consultations on Thursday mornings only.  If you would like a body composition assessment to be done on the InBody Analyser, then you need to book in for a Thursday morning appointment.  Patients are seen under strict hygiene conditions and face-masks are compulsory.

NEW: 30 Minute Virtual Consultation R410

Are you looking to have your diet reviewed, but unsure about whether a comprehensive dietary treatment plan is required? Then this could be for you.

Book in for a basic diet assessment, and we can set a few goals to improve your current eating habits. This is done on Zoom or WhatsApp Video.

Please note that this does not include a personalised meal plan, but you can upgrade to a full assessment consultation should you decide that you would like a meal plan.

Consultation structure for a comprehensive dietary treatment plan:

  1. Initial Consultation: R880

 

This is very much a fact-finding meeting for the dietician to find out your likes and dislikes, and to determine your goals. The dietician will take:

  • physical measurements – height; weight; body fat; waist circumference. I use an InBody Body Composition Analyser to determine fat, muscle and water values.If it is a virtual consultation, you will need to take your own measurements.
  • a medical and family history
  • a dieting history
  • a 24-hour dietary recall
  • goal-setting
  • blood tests will be ordered if deemed necessary
  • dietary education will be given
  • OPTIONAL: nutrigenomic tests will be done if the patient would like a diet plan that is personalised according to their DNA. These tests need to be paid for separately. Please consult the Nutrigenomic Tests page under Services for more details.

 

  1. Diet Plan Consultation (Second Consultation): R590

This is the educational consultation. The dietician would have taken all the information gathered from the initial consultation, and drawn up an individualised diet plan to meet the patient’s specific nutritional requirements. The patient is educated on the reasoning behind the diet plan so that they are empowered to make the correct food choices to meet their dietary requirements. They are also given menu ideas and recipes to follow.

  1. Follow-Up Consultations: R410

These consultations involve monitoring the patient, and fine-tuning the patient’s diet plan. Physical measurements will be done, and the dietician will examine the food diary and take another 24-hour dietary recall to make sure the patient is on track. Various topics will be covered in the follow-ups. These include eating out and socializing; coping with hunger; managing comfort eating; healthy meal ideas; breaking the fat-loss plateau; getting active and overcoming exercise barriers.

  1. Quick Check-Ins for Fat-loss Patients: R300

Please note: The fees are paid to the practitioner. You will be given an invoice to submit to medical aid for a refund, depending on the scheme and plan that you are on.
