Latest research published by our dietitians

Exciting news! Here is the latest research published by our dietitians!

So not only do we see patients and provide you with advice, but the dietitians here at Nutted Out Nutrition are also committed to advancing the knowledge of nutrition, food and health by conducting research through our roles with two of Australia’s leading universities. So here s the latest research published by our dietitians!

In addition to seeing patients, Melissa and Christie conduct research with Monash University through their work and PhD’s with the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food (also known as Monash Nutrition), while Konsita conducts research through her PhD with the nutrition department at Deakin University.

From now on we will bring you regular updates on the research we carry out. We have had a busy couple of years with a number of research papers published in peer reviewed journals. We have provided the abstracts for you to read so you can get an overview of the research, and if you would like to read more, a number of the papers are open access (what we mean by that is they are free to read).
