Thank you all for your incredible support since I opened my doors as Nathalie Mat, Registered Dietitian in November 2013. My Melrose practice has grown in such leaps and bounds that I have decided to focus all my energy into one location. This means I will no longer be in Bryanston on Tuesdays and Thursdays but will now be available five days a week at my Melrose practice. I am still available every second Saturday to accommodate those that cannot make it to me during the week.
For your convenience, I am keeping my Bryanston telephone number and so you can still contact me on either telephone number.
South Africa, like many countries around the world, is facing an obesity crisis. Tim Noakes has proposed that a low carbohydrate way of eating is the solution and has recommended this to a wide number of people without always doing a full assessment to see if this is appropriate for each individual. One such recommendation he made was a tweet to a mother encouraging her to wean her child onto a low carbohydrate diet. The president of the Association of Dietetics in South Africa(ADSA), Claire Julsing-Strydom, laid a complaint with the HPCSA against Tim for this tweet.
