The team at SS Diets are highly specialised. We each have years of training and experience in our chosen specialty service areas.
Our team of experienced dietitians can support all ages through the NDIS. We have a specialist paediatric dietitian service for our little humans and a team of experienced adult dietitians for those above late teenage years.
We can support all nutritional challenges including enteral nutrition (kids and adults), fussy eating, eating disorders, weight management (both up and down) and all nutrition and diet complications associated with someone’s disability.
Weight Management, Diabetes And General Nutrition
- Do you need to improve your cholesterol levels?
- Maybe you want to avoid diabetes?
- Has your doctor told you to gain weight after surgery?
- Do you have symptoms of abdominal bloating, chronic constipation or urgent diarrhoea that you find distressing?
We believe in providing practical strategies based on scientific research. Our team of dietitians have over 60 years of experience in all areas of nutrition. We understand that nutrition and food messages can be confusing and conflicting, especially in today’s media. We can help you understand your medical diagnosis and its relationship with food.
We fundamentally believe in you understanding why you need to make changes, not just what to change. We are not about ‘diets’. We are about nutrition counselling and education to support you having the best opportunity to achieve your desired outcome.
Paediatric Dietetic Services
- Are you having difficulty with your child’s growth?
- Is your child a fussy eater?
- Does your child have difficulty chewing or swallowing?
- Has your child been diagnosed with food allergies or intolerances or do you require investigation into this?
At SS Diets we have a particular passion for supporting kids requiring tube feeding. Our goal is to get them off the tube as quickly as possible. Alternatively, if that’s not possible, we work with families to ensure the tube is as minimally invasive to family life. We also specialise in supporting families who would like to investigate the use of blended feeds rather than commercially available products.
We understand kids are not just ‘little adults’ and paediatric nutrition encompasses the entire family. We are both NDIS Registered and verified. This means for NDIS Participants, no matter which funding stream their NDIS plan is managed by (self-managed, plan managed or NDIA managed), we can provide the nutritional support and advice specifically for you or your child’s disability.
Bariatric Dietetic Services
Have you struggled with your weight for a long time and considering the possibility of weight loss surgery? We understand how daunting this decision can be and we can give you the guidance and support both before, during and for years following your surgery. Do you want to get expert, scientifically supported dietary advice around what life (either immediately or long-term) would be like after surgery?
SS Diets is your local specialist bariatric dietitian service. We work closely with multiple surgeons in your area and around Sydney, supporting people through their weight loss journey. We work with surgeons who perform all kinds of bariatric surgeries including gastric by-pass, sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and mini-gastric bypass surgeries. We are empathetic to your needs and will guide you through the appropriate diet adjustments for your surgery.
We also specialise in supporting women and families considering pregnancy following weight loss surgery. We are passionate about supporting you with practical strategies to minimise or prevent longer-term weight regain.
Eating Disorder Dietetic Services
Eating disorders are scary and confusing. Our team of experienced eating disorder dietitians are certified by the ANZAED (Australia and New Zealand Academy of Eating Disorders) and by The Butterfly Foundation. We support and guide you or your loved one, through all eating disorders.
We support clients with acute and atypical anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and ARFID (Avoidant, Restrictive Food Intake Disorder). We work closely with local experienced eating disorder psychologists and GP’s to help you understand and challenge the eating disorder.
We cannot make someone give up their eating disorder, no one can. We hope to guide our patients to want to give it up themselves. We understand how destructive and exhausting eating disorders can be. How they can encapsulate everything about a person’s family, friends, work, study and entire world. We work with our clients and their support team (friends and family) through recovery. We help them to discover they are more powerful than their eating disorder.
