Caryn Zinn - Dietitian

I am the owner of Caryn Zinn Nutrition, and I've been running a nutrition consultancy business for over 25 years. For the last 10 years my work has focused on a more holistic whole-food nutrition and lifestyle approach to health and wellbeing, and sports performance. My specialty area is the application of whole food carbohydrate reduction, and the therapeutic application of the ketogenic diet particularly for conditions characterised by insulin resistance i.e., Weight loss, diabetes (T1, T2 and prediabetes), menopause, and inflammatory conditions.

Sylvia Goedeke - Dietitian

I am a registered dietitian with a special interest in women's health, fertility, and pregnancy nutrition. I have been consulting in private practice since completing my masters in dietetics in 2016. In 2023, I submitted my PhD, which focused on hyperinsulinaemia in pregnancy and gestational diabetes (currently under examination). I love to help clients use nutrition and lifestyle to optimise their metabolic health - it’s never just weight loss, but when health improves, it’s also the reduced inflammation, less pain, better hormones, and energy levels. I have specific expertise in addressing and overcoming digestive concerns and chronic inflammatory conditions. I am generally not satisfied by being told that I need to learn to live with sub‑optimal health; I am interested in getting to the root cause to develop sustainable ways forward. To me, holistic nutrition care means taking in the whole picture to develop nutrition and lifestyle approaches that get you to your goals and help you stay healthy.

Consultations are claimable on selective comprehensive health insurance schemes.
