SS Diets are now The Eatwise Clinic
Start your journey with us
The Eatwise Clinic is an ever expanding team of (currently) 5 dietitians. We have been working in the St George and Sutherland Shire areas for over 20 years. As dietitians, we love food, so much that we studied it for 5 years (at least) and talk about food all day every day!
With specialist Dietitians focusing on Paediatrics, Bariatric Surgery, Gut Dysfunction, Diabetes, Weight Management, Eating Disorders and other complex presentations, the team at The Eatwise Clinic are perfectly suited to help with any dietetic needs.
We have all had experience working in major hospitals across Sydney and collectively have over 60 years of experience working as Dietitians. We believe in evidence-based advice delivered with practical strategies. We keep up to date with changes in scientific research, as well as food trends and social media focus points (sometimes justified, other times completely off the mark and confusing).
At The Eatwise Clinic, we believe in overall healthy, sustainable, filling plans – full of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and high-quality carbohydrates, all supported by scientific evidence. We’re Accredited Practising Dietitians, University trained professionals and registered members of Dietitian’s Australia.

Specialty service areas
We have four major specialty areas of work. Within each of these are a multitude of options.
Diabetes, Cardiovascular and Gastrointestinal Dietetic Services
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.Learn more
Paediatric and Disability Dietetic Services
We understand kids are not just ‘little adults’ and paediatric nutrition encompasses the entire family. 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.Learn more
Bariatric Dietetic Services
The Eatwise Clinic has many specialty areas, covering a wide range of dietetic issues. However, there is one specialty we’re particularly well-known for and that’s as dietitians for bariatric surgery.
We work closely with multiple surgeons in your area and around Sydney, supporting people through their weight loss journey.
We work closely with multiple surgeons in your local area and throughout Sydney who perform all kinds of bariatric surgeries including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and mini-gastric bypass surgeries.Learn more
Eating Disorder Dietetic Services
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 GPs to help you understand and challenge the eating disorder.
We understand how destructive and exhausting eating disorders can be. How they 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.Learn more

Weight Control (Adults & Children)
The best weight control strategy considers all aspects of eating across the entire day, not just cutting out whole food groups.
(High Blood Pressure)
Changing your dietary intake, increasing exercise and losing some weight (if indicated) all independently can lower your BP.
(High Blood Cholesterol)
There are different components of cholesterol, and each has a different dietary strategy to help increase or decrease them.
Diverticular Disease, Diverticulosis, Diverticulitis
The key to preventing diverticulosis from becoming diverticulitis is to ensure you’re getting enough fibre in your diet. 60% of Australian adults don’t consume enough fibre.
Type 1 Diabetes (Pens/Pumps)
Understanding your dietary intake, particularly the amount of carbohydrate you consume, and your need for insulin is vitally important.
Type 2 Diabetes (Diet or Insulin)
When diabetes is diagnosed, dietary management is vitally important to prevent long term complications such as poor eye sight, kidney disease or blocked arteries.
There are lots of lifestyle strategies that can be implemented to reverse insulin resistance and prevent (or slow) its transition to Type 2 Diabetes.
Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
Changing your lifestyle (food & movement) is the key to controlling symptoms and reducing complications of PCOS.
Fatty Liver, Cirrhosis & Liver Failure
There are currently no medications to prevent liver disease progression. The best strategy is to improve your lifestyle.
Chronic Renal Failure (1-5 & Dialysis)
At stages 1 – 3 the focus is to preserve your current kidney function and prevent further decline by making some significant and sustainable changes to your diet and exercise.
Recurrent Kidney Stones
Kidney stones develop when waste products inside your kidney join together and form a solid mass (or a ‘stone’). The best strategy to prevent them from growing is to stay well hydrated at all times.
Gout is caused by a build-up of uric acid and presents as small crystals form in and around key joints (most commonly in the knees, feet or hands) and cause inflammation and significant pain.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (FODMAP DIET)
IBS is harmless, but distressing, either an elimination diet or considering your fibre intake might help to alleviate some of the unpleasant symptoms.
Coeliac disease is very different from “gluten intolerance” and needs to be clearly understood and a strict gluten-free diet implemented to minimise complications.
Crohns & Ulcerative Colitis
Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis are painful & distressing conditions. While there are no known causes, changing your diet can help to minimise the symptoms.
Malnutrition (Elderly & Respiratory Conditions)
Up to 72% of aged care residents have been shown to be malnourished. Implementing high protein, high energy diet strategies will assist weight gain and prevent further weight loss.
Food Intolerances (Elimination Diet)
Food intolerances are difficult to diagnose and consideration of an elimination diet needs professional support and assistance.
Being underweight is more dangerous to our health than being overweight. There should be a focus on ‘making every mouthful count’.
Disordered Eating: Binge Eating, Anorexia, Bulimia
Recovery from an eating disorder requires an experienced supportive team including friends, family, your GP, an experienced psychologist & dietitian as well as possibly a psychiatrist.
