ABOUT Dietitian Approved


Hi, I'm Taryn!

I'm an Advanced Sports Dietitian specialising in Triathlon Nutrition 

Here to help you eat well, train hard and smash your next goal

Consider me your SECRET WEAPON ⚡️

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.

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.

I'm on a mission to get evidence-based sports nutrition into as many hands as possible!

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.

When Anne isn't busy being an admin ninja, you'll find her hanging out with her family, visiting the local beaches, or trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
