Is an online nutrition consult as good as in-person nutrition consult?
Yes! Depending on what you’re looking for, an online nutrition consult means you have more flexibility with the time or day you choose, as you don’t need to consider travel time. I am a dietitian in Auckland, though my services are accessible to anyone in New Zealand so long as they are able to get internet access.
My online dietitian services are run strictly to schedule, so you won’t need to twiddle your thumbs in a waiting room. The quality of the nutrition consult itself is no different than an in-person consult. The only difference in how the consult is run is that anthropometry (weights and measurements) are not taken by me. However, these are not necessary to provide quality nutrition advice. In fact, for clients who prefer a non-weight approach, we don’t discuss size anyway.
Online nutrition consults tend to work out cheaper for the client as well, as you don't have to worry about petrol or parking expenses to get to a clinic.
Seeing an online nutritionist in Auckland that also caters to all New Zealanders means you can sit back on your comfiest couch with your favourite beverage while we conduct your consult.
