Taryn is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) & Accredited Sports Dietitian. She has a wide range of experience working over the past 10 years in the clinical, community & private practice settings consulting to a wide range of clients to help them achieve their health goals.

Sports nutrition is her passion & she founded Dietitian Approved to help people eat for both Health and Performance in sport and in life. She has worked with numerous athletes & sports including triathlon, ironman, swimming, cycling, running, jockey's, polocrosse, crossfitters & the everyday athlete wanting to be fit and healthy. 

She currently consults to Triathlon Australia, looking after our Australian Triathlon and Para-Triathlon team. The mix of private practice and elite sport is her absolute dream job! It also means elite level, best-practice and evidence-based nutrition is passed on to the everyday "athlete".

Taryn is also a trained  Anthropometrist, which means she is qualified to assess body composition with skin folds to the international standard.

As an "athlete" herself, Taryn knows first-hand the demands training has on your lifestyle. Growing up she balanced swimming with netball & she now competes in sprint & olympic distance triathlons while dabbling in a bit of CrossFit/Weight training.

Our Philosophy 

We don't follow diets or food trends. We believe in a well balanced approach using whole foods as the basis for a healthy lifestyle. Healthy eating doesn't need to be hard or boring! We love to cook simple food that is full of flavour and nutritious.

You can’t out train a bad diet

 

We believe an individualised nutrition plan is key to optimal sports performance. You spend hours & hours training, but if you haven't got your nutrition sorted it can be harder to reach your goals.  Spend a little time on your nutrition to improve your health, maintain your desired body composition & enhance performance in your sport. It's cheaper than buying a new bike!
