What is eatForLife?

eatForLife is an electronic nutrition programme, which specialises in changing your lifestyle and eating habits for good, so you will not gain the weight again and look for yet another quick fix solution.

eatForLife has been designed by and is administered by qualified dieticians and is scientifically based. It is not based on a point system, nor do you need to weigh your food. The programme is based on balanced nutrition, an active lifestyle and a balanced approach to living. Your progress towards these goals is then monitored under close supervision. The programme is based on foods from all food groups.

With eatForLife, there is NO one size fits all. Core to the programme is that YOU are given the ability to build and modify your own eating plan, selecting foods that appeal to you – the system will automatically adjust the portions (and foods that you can chose from) depending on your goals and medical conditions. We do not prescribe an eating plan for you – you build your own, personal plan

I’m Tracy- your Dietician and cheerleader on this journey to a healthier you!

I’ve been in the field of dietetics, working in both the private and public sector, for the last 14 years...and I love what I do!

It’s always exciting when I am able to help someone understand what their nutritional goals are and then guide them towards making them a reality in a way that is sustainable and enjoyable.

As an insulin-dependent diabetic myself I know all too well the importance (and often challenge) of the balance between healthy eating and consistent exercise. Being a part of RWFL and the EFL program is an amazing way to combine these two aspects and provide the healthy lifestyle we should all be aiming towards. It’s also just so much better when you have a bunch of people doing it with you!

I look forward to partnering you on your wellness journey.
