About

Ideal Nutrition is an in-person and online dietitian service based in Brisbane. Our biggest specialty is body composition improvement, with a focus on helping people gain muscle or lose fat. 

This has developed through their own interest in sports and strength training, with a particular focus on powerlifting, in combination with the experience gained working with clients. 

Although they specialise in nutrition for body composition, athletes are not the only clients we see. Ideal Nutrition sees clients of all kinds with a wide range of goals and needs. Everything from non-athletes looking to improve their health through to elite level athletes looking to optimise performance.

Our dietitians perform consults either online via Zoom or face-to-face at Valhalla Strength in Brisbane (4/90 Northlink Place, Virginia).

There are two main goals of Ideal Nutrition:

  1. Help one on one clients achieve their goals by working with them to strategically plan their nutrition in a way that is individualised to their needs and preferences.
  2. Create evidence-based nutrition content that is beneficial on a wider scale, distributed through Instagram, the Ideal Nutrition Blog and Podcast.
