Healthy Eating & Weight Management
Put simply; healthy eating is consuming a variety of different foods that provide you with nutrients to optimise your health and reduce chronic disease risk.
Having a positive relationship with food is also an important part of healthy eating. At INDi, we work together to decide what healthy eating means for you and how you can achieve it.
Type 1 & 2 Diabetes
Diabetes is a condition that can result in high blood glucose levels as a result of insulin deficiency or resistance.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes damage to the pancreas, resulting in little or no insulin being produced.
Type 2 diabetes is when the body does not respond to insulin and/or less insulin is produced by the pancreas.
The aim of diabetes management is to maintain blood glucose levels within a healthy range to avoid long term complications. This can be achieved with lifestyle changes, medication, physical activity, and insulin injections.
At INDi we can help you manage diabetes with diet and lifestyle, as well as when the transition is made to requiring medication and/or insulin.
High cholesterol and high blood pressure are two major chronic health conditions that lead to an increase in the risk of CVD. INDi dietitians can help you reduce cholesterol and blood pressure with simple dietary changes that are sustainable to help reduce these risks.

Coeliac Disease & IBDs
Symptoms are not always present but can include abdominal pain, bloating and diarrhoea. Nutritional side effects include iron deficiency and osteoporosis. A gluten-free diet is the only treatment for coeliac disease.
It has been demonstrated that even small amounts of gluten are sufficient to cause ongoing intestinal damage in coeliac patients and thus, understanding the intricacies of the gluten-free diet is important to avoid gluten ingestion. In a small population, gluten intolerance can exist in the absence of coeliac disease. However, it is vital that coeliac disease is excluded prior to the commencement of a gluten-free diet.
Once you have removed gluten from your diet, diagnosing coeliac disease becomes extremely difficult. Please seek medical advice for coeliac screening before significantly reducing your intake of gluten. Inspiring Nutrition Perth will be able to assist you in identifying whether gluten is indeed a trigger for your symptoms.
Foods are made up of thousands of chemicals. Most of the chemicals in foods are naturally occurring and some are man-made, but both natural and man-made chemicals are capable of causing uncomfortable and occasionally life-threatening symptoms in some people.
Food intolerance or food chemical intolerance is more common than food allergy. It has been estimated that perhaps 10 – 15 in every 100 people suffer from symptoms caused by food chemicals, severe enough to interfere with their day-to-day life.
Many more people have mild symptoms. For example, you may have heard someone say “If I eat too much chocolate, I get a headache” or “If I eat spicy foods, I have an upset stomach”. These are both typical statements from a person with food chemical intolerance.
Some of the symptoms which can be caused by food chemical intolerance are as follows: Mouth ulcers, Sore throat, Indigestion/Reflux/Heartburn, Stomach/Bowel pain, Nausea/Vomiting, Excess Wind and Bloating, Constipation/Diarrhoea, Shortness of breath, Wheeze, Runny/stuffy nose, Unexplained tiredness/lethargy /or exhaustion, Hyperactivity, Headaches/migraines, Unexplained aches/pains in joints or muscles, Eczema, Hives, Rashes, Swelling – face, hands, feet, arms, legs.

All 3 of our dietitians are specially trained to work with weight loss surgery patients and are accredited with a Certificate in Medical Nutrition Therapy in Bariatric Surgery. We are your go-to dietitians for bariatric patients regardless of how long ago you had your surgery or where you had your surgery.
Weight Loss Surgery
At INDi dietitians, we specialise in providing support for patients undergoing weight loss surgery covering all stages before and after surgery. From preparing for your surgery to maintaining your new diet and lifestyle, we are there to make your transition smooth and successful, providing you with dietary counselling and resources to help you at each stage of your journey.
We take a long-term view of your journey and we enable you to obtain support when you need it the most. Our programs include pre and post-operative care and one-on-one counselling sessions with our dietitian as well as an open line of communication at any stage through phone calls or email. During your counselling sessions, we focus on the key requirements for each bariatric stage, what to expect from your surgery and how to navigate the changes to your diet and lifestyle including the change in the way you select and eat foods.
See our “back-on-track” Healthy Weight Package for those who have had surgery over 12 months ago.
