Nutrition Masterclass

Anyone can search the internet for answers relating to their nutrition questions. Unfortunately, the internet is full of false health gurus that sell all kinds of diets, diet plans and products especially for weight loss.  Well, the truth is when you must remove that very painful tooth you don’t google “How to remove an aching tooth at home” … you go to the dentist (teeth doctor). Why then if you want to lose weight, you google “what to eat or drink to lose the weight”?

According to the latest South African Demographic and Health Survey, almost 70% of local women are either overweight or obese. The country has the highest rates for women in Africa. The truth is every second woman you meet is struggling with weight so the market for products for “weight loss” has grown tremendously and that means more of these products and fad diets everywhere.

The Masterclass is not a weight Program, it is a platform where the food & nutrition expert (dietitian) engages with people on a variety of nutrition related topics.


The Nutrition Masterclass is to empower people with evidence-based nutrition information for anyone who wants to get the most out of their diet. It can be someone who wants to lose weight, simply want to live a healthier life, someone living with chronic diseases of lifestyle (e.g. diabetes) or just want to help relieve constipation (because life happens).
