Why choose the First13 program?

1. Created and led by an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)

APDs are the only nutrition professionals that:

  • Have scientific training and clinical supervision, making them highly skilled at examining scientific evidence and cutting through misinformation.
  • Are qualified to deliver dietary and medical nutrition therapy under Medicare.
  • Are more than just nutrition scientists. They are also trained in counselling, coaching and educating – so they can provide advice that is realistic, actionable and right for you.

2. Get connected and supported

  • Small groups of like-minded learners make up learning teams.
  • Your questions answered directly by your assigned Leading Dietitian.
  • Private consultations available to discuss specific issues and customised diet planning.

3. Based on current scientific evidence

Our nutrition program complies with recommendations made by:

  • The National Health and Medical Research Council
  • The Australian Government Department of Health.

4. Behaviour-focused

  • Focus on Mindset and Lifestyle instead of a strict diet and calorie counting approach.
  • Focus on permanent positive shift in eating and exercise behaviour through improving your relationship with food.
