ABOUT NUTRIENT NATION

Gain more energy for life with nutrition advice

tailored to the way you live.

Let’s take the guesswork out of what you should be eating. At Nutrient Nation, we make it easy to give your body the fuel it needs for work and play.

Doing all the right things but not seeing the results you want? Or maybe you don’t even know where to start?

When you feel overwhelmed about what you should and shouldn’t be eating, it’s impossible to develop a positive relationship with food.

That’s where we come in – to empower you to make the right choices. Life is too short to yo-yo between diets and experiment with food fads; you deserve a way of eating that will bring out the best in you. (Hint: there is so much more to eating well than steamed fish and veggies at every meal.)

Practical nutrition advice

that suits your lifestyle.

Our method is called performance nutrition. This evidence-based technique connects the dots between work, life, exercise and food to give you more out of each day.

See us as much as you need to reach your goals, and enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing you are treating your body right.

Our founder Rebecca Haslam started Nutrient Nation with the goal to make practical nutrition advice more accessible. She may have a PhD in Human Physiology, but she knows how to break the science down in a way that’s easy for you to understand.

Worried that you’re too busy or tired to make changes? We can show you simple ways to get healthy.

By teaching you what your body needs, we help you to make positive changes that you can actually stick to. So whether you need more energy, want to lose weight or are training for a big event, we can get you working towards a healthier you.

Felicity Steel

As a regular gym-goer and AFL player, Felicity is well attuned to the relationship between nutrition, energy levels and overall wellbeing. She personally experienced the effects of under-fuelling her body prior to undertaking her nutrition degree, and this sparked her passion for women’s health.

Felicity believes that food should always be enjoyed and draws on current research to develop customised programs. Whether you want to improve your health or your on-field performance, Felicity will work with you to teach you what foods you need to fuel your body and reach your goals.

Felicity holds a Bachelor of Nutrition & Dietetics (Hons) and has completed the ISAK Level 1 Anthropometry course. She is also a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia, Sports Dietitians Australia and Nutrition Society of Australia.
