About Us

“To provide superior nutrition, dietetics, exercise rehabilitation and exercise programming services, using the latest and most up to date proved research.”

Food should be something you enjoy, not something you are afraid or unsure of. With a lot of misleading information that is often presented by the media today it is no wonder you get confused about what is actually good for you or how you should eat. At KB Nutrition we look at your current lifestyle and diet as a whole, then tailor our advice so it is specific to your needs and your current situation. We don’t like to class food as ‘good’ or bad’, instead our aim is to equip you with the skills and knowledge so you Know Better how to enjoy everything in moderation.

Your Practitioner

Katharine Bennett (Kate) holds a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology from the University of New South Wales, and a Masters of Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Sydney. Kate is accredited with both the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) and Exercise Sports Science Australia (ESSA). She has spent most of her working career in regional and rural Queensland in a busy private practice working primarily in chronic disease management and weight loss.

Kate believes that to achieve optimal health you can’t just look at one aspect (e.g. diet alone), but instead take a whole lifestyle approach, which encourages positive and sustainable behavioural change in the areas of nutrition, physical activity and other lifestyle factors (such as stress management and sleeping habits). One style or program does not fit all, so Kate works with each individual to set clear goals and tailor all advice specific to their individual needs.

What is a Dietitian?

An Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) is a university qualified allied health professional who use their expert knowledge in medical nutrition therapy to improve health and manage lifestyle conditions (chronic diseases).

In Australia APDs are also Accredited Nutritionists (AN). APDs and ANs have a thorough knowledge of food, how it reacts in a healthy body and why we need the appropriate balance in our diet to ensure our bodies are functioning efficiently.

APDs have additional knowledge and clinical training about diseases and how food can be used to effectively manage a variety of medical conditions including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, food allergies and intolerances etc.

The Fodmap Challenge

KB Nutrition is working with The Fodmap Challenge to create an online dietary program to help people with irritable bowel disease (IBS) better understand their food triggers and bring more food ease.

FODMAPs stands for Fermetable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. These are different types of sugars that act as a food source to bacteria that live in the large intestine. When they are not absorbed properly, they are fermented or not digested properly, causing a number of uncomfortable symptoms including bloating, pain, gas, constipation or diarrhoea etc. 

The Fodmap Challenge is an online program designed to facilitate you through the Low FODMAP diet, which will ultimately help you identify your food triggers.
