ABOUT Dietitian Approved


Hi, I'm Taryn!

I'm not your regular straighty-180 dietitian and like to push the boundaries. I absolutely love working with people to help them eat for health and performance.

Think of me as your personal food coach!

I'm happiest riding my bike or at the beach with a coffee in hand.

I'm a straight talker, take a no-BS approach and love a bit of banter.

I have little patience for unqualified advice-givers or woohoo science and get frustrated watching people jump from one fad to the next, or fumble around following (well-meaning but the misaligned) advice from their training buddies/coach/uncle/Dr Google.


About Taryn Richardson Sports Dietitian

You spend hours & hours training, but if you haven’t got your nutrition sorted it can be so much harder to reach your goals. 

Spend a little time on your nutrition with an expert to improve your health, for life. Maintain your desired body composition & finally perform at your best. A little bit of sports nutrition advice goes a long way! Yes, it's an investment, but it’s cheaper than buying a new bike and lasts a lifetime ;)

The nerdy part...

Our Philosophy 

"You can’t out-train a bad diet”

We don’t follow diets or food trends. We believe in a well balanced approach using whole foods as the basis for a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy eating doesn’t need to be hard or boring! We love to cook simple food that is full of flavour and nutritious, without spending hours slaving away in the kitchen!

Having your own individualised nutrition plan is key. What works for your training buddies is not necessarily right for you. If you're sick of fumbling around in the dark, invest in your nutrition and finally start feeling great and performing at your best.

Anne is our behind the scenes wing woman. She looks after client care and helps get Dietitian Approved and the Triathlon Nutrition Academy out to the world.  She also keeps me under control so I can focus on doing what I do best – being the Sports Dietitian.
