Our CEO Josephine

I’m Josephine, CEO of Nutrition & Life, and the lead Dietitian for Nutrition & Life and That Gut Feeling.

I have been leading the team at Nutrition & Life for 5 years to make meaningful, lasting changes in people’s lives.

My background in both psychology and nutrition makes our nutrition plans unique and means eating behaviours are central to our nutrition plans.

We focus on both food and your life as focusing on your unique lifestyle is the only way to get meaningful lasting health changes. I believe food is an incredibly powerful way to take control of your physical and emotional health so that you can be free to live your life the way you want to.

I am also the founder of “That Gut Feeling”, a revolutionary program that takes into account the latest evidence on the gut brain axis and the FODMAP diet for holistic management of Irritable Bowel Management.

I have selected a team of highly specialised Registered Dietitians nationwide who have the same values, knowledge, and skills I do. You can see a virtual Dietitian anywhere in the country so that you can be sure you are getting the most specialised Dietitian for your health conditions.

You can speak with a Dietitian for free to see if our specialty service is right for you.
