About Zoe…  

Melbourne Dietitian Zoe NicholsonZoe founded love what you eat in 2004 with little more than a piece of paper, a pen and a highlighter. Zoe’s passion for helping people learn to enjoy all food and manage their health without dieting has resulted in love what you eat becoming a busy full-time private practice with 1 other dietitian, Kerrie Hill (see below). Zoe is now recognised as one of Australia’s leading dietitians with appearances on 774 ABC Melbourne, Channel 10, 3AW, GOLD FM radio and numerous media contributions including the Herald Sun, Women’s Weekly and Body + Soul .

Zoe feels that a love of food is key to her success as a dietitian and one of Zoe’s primary goals is to help people stop dieting and instead, establish a positive relationship with food and their bodies. Zoe takes immense pleasure in seeing people change the way they think about food and health which enables them to enjoy all food and feel more comfortable in their body. To do this, Zoe uses a Health At Every Size Approach (HAES®) with a combination Non-Diet principles, life experience, common sense, food awareness (aka mindfulness) and psychology. Zoe is part of the HEAS® community and a member of ASDAH (Association for Size Diversity and Health).

Zoe also holds a keen interest in food intolerance and this area of nutrition now accounts for around half her clientele. 

In addition to private consulting, Zoe conducts nutrition seminars and workshops for various workplaces and corporations, something she enjoy immensely.

In June 2013 Zoe created the love what you eat dietetics Facebook page where she is passionate in providing balanced information on the latest food fads, nutrition topics and practical tips on eating well. The page receives a tremendous response from followers, fuelling Zoe’s passion for educating the public on food and nutrition. Zoe then co-founded The Moderation Movement in November 2014 with fitness professional Jodie Arnot, director of Healthy Balance Fitness. The Moderation Movement has gathered over 38,000 followers in less than 2 years and reinforces Zoe’s belief that a healthy relationship with all food is key to healthy life.

Zoe also organises and runs bi-monthly networking meetings for dietitians who work in private practice across Melbourne. She is a lover of wine, bread, cheese and golden retrievers and in her spare time, can usually be found enjoying at least one of these. Zoe has a golden retriever called Bailey brings and he brings her much joy and calmness.

Zoe has over 12 years experience in private practice.
