Welcome to Real Food Dietitians

At Real Food Dietitians we believe in a whole-food, real food approach for everyone. In simple terms this means: no refined carbohydrates, no packaged foods and no added sugars. By eating this way, we will naturally be eating a lower carbohydrate and higher fat diet. We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to nutrition. Some individuals’ medical history will dictate a very low carbohydrate approach to eating, whereas others may tolerate higher levels and the same goes for fats.
