Bachelor of Human Nutrition 2007 & GradDip. Dietetics 2009, University of Canberra

Welcome! I’m Holly Smith, an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Sports Dietitian. I graduated in 2009 with both a Bachelor of Human Nutrition and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics. I’m a mother to a beautiful girl, Sophie. I enjoy running, cycling and triathlons and regularly competed in National athletic, cross country and basketball championships as an ACT representative. I’m also one of only a few Accredited Sports Dietitian’s practising privately in Canberra. In other words, I’m a competitive foodie who loves helping people achieve their health and fitness goals.

Over the last 12 years I’ve worked in gyms and with sporting clubs, in major hospitals, private practice and in the media. I’ve helped educate many of Canberra’s sporting teams on the benefit of fuelling for performance. I love helping people improve their health, wellbeing and performance by promoting a realistic and positive attitude towards food and health. I’m flexible in my attitude to diet and lifestyle and understand that nobody is perfect when it comes to eating – me included!

My qualifications and experience mean I can support your nutrition needs with:

  • Weight management (including bariatric surgery)
  • Endurance sports, such as running, cycling and triathlon
  • Team sports, such as basketball and football
  • Adolescent athletes
  • Gastrointestinal complaints, such as irritable bowel syndrome and gut troubles in sport
  • Coeliac disease
  • Chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes
  • Iron deficiency and anaemia.

So if you’re ready to do some nutrition training to improve your overall health and performance goals, I’d love to work with you!
