Optimum Intake Dietitians
Optimum Intake Dietitians will provide you with dietary education on how to change not only what, but how you eat and how to achieve optimum nourishment for your body as you transition through this process.. Although some eating changes can sound simple, in reality, breaking years of eating habits can be hard and your team is there to support you through both the successes and the set backs along the way. We will help you to understand and manage the changes you may experience so you can make the best decisions for you. From experience we have found that this support and education is fundamental to long-term success with bariatric surgery.
Optimum Intake Dietitian – Laura See
Our Dietitian Laura See is an Accredited Practising Dietitian, a member of the Dietitian’s Association of Australia and an associate member of the Australian and New Zealand Metabolic and Obesity Surgery Society. She graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics for the University of Newcastle. Laura had been providing nutrition counselling services in private practice before joining Optimum Intake Dietitians in 2019. She is actively involved in continual professional development in the area of bariatric surgery, supporting individuals through the surgical journey from pre-operative nutrition assessments, ongoing nutritional management and helping clients post-surgery with changing eating habits.
Laura recognises that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to health and is passionate about working with individuals to achieve their health goals through developing positive, long-lasting eating habits. She believes in helping people discover the ways in which a balanced, consistent diet can help them experience more out of life. Optimum Intake has specifically designed a bariatric surgery care package, in conjunction with your surgeon, to maximise the support we can provide our clients. The package includes a comprehensive pre-operative assessment and post surgery reviews over a period of 12 months.
