MEET OUR DIABETES DIETITIAN

Accredited Practising Dietitian, Melissa Yip, understands the confusion that comes from a diabetes diagnosis and can help find the best diet for you.

Our individualised, realistic approach to healthy eating and diabetes management helps people with diabetes/pre-diabetes, who are struggling to get their blood sugar levels under control, feel empowered and able to make sense of what to eat whilst living in the real world (and not a 8 week TV documentary “experiment”).

We do this by equipping you with essential skills required for long-term success. Skills such cooking, organisation and problem solving when things don’t go to plan. We focus on the big picture and sustainable changes, unlike the diet books and other programs that promote a one-size fits all approach which often is not sustainable.

MEET OUR DIABETES DIETITIAN

Melissa will help you feel reassured, empowered and confident in your food choices to manage your diabetes long term.

She is a highly experienced dietitian with over 7 years in the industry. She’s worked in a range of clinical setting from community health centres and hospitals to now one of The Healthy Eating Clinic diabetes experts.

Melissa’s approaches to diabetes management is to first educate her client so that they fully understand the relationship between blood sugars, food and their body. Then she takes the client through our evidenced-based diabetes nutrition pathway and shows how key healthy eating principles applies to each individual’s life in a realistic and sustainable way.

The over-arching principle that Melissa teaches is carbohydrate management and helping the client understand how carbs effect their blood sugars and work out their individual requirements. We don’t take a ‘low carb’ or a ‘high carb’ approach, we take a ‘what’s right for you carb’ approach.

Melissa is also highly experienced in helping clients with weight loss along with clients pre and post bariatric surgery.
