My Story

I've spent most of my life on quick-fix diets, cleanses and eating food I didn't like.  I learned the hard way that changing my basic eating habits was the only way to sustain weight loss in the long run.


Hi I'm Taylor an accredited practicing dietitian with extensive experience in diabetes management. I'm a graduate of the University of Sydney (B. SC., 1987, Master of Nutrition & Dietetics, 1994). I have conducted research into the glycemic index of foods and its practical applications over the last 15 years. Currently, I am a dietitian with Wentworth Area Diabetes Services in New South Wales providing consultancy on all aspects of the glycemic index. My interests focus is on all aspects of carbohydrates - diet and diabetes, the glycemic index of foods, insulin resistance, lactose intolerance, and oligosaccharides in infant nutrition. I invite you to browse site, connect with our forum and contact me with your health concerns.

How my service works

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in the world and is a contributing factor to the high rates of heart disease. It can also cause health problems related to blindness, kidney failure and amputation. In Australia and New Zealand diabetes and pre-diabetes affect 1 in 4 people. Every day nearly 300 adults and even children develop type 2 diabetes - and for every person diagnosed with diabetes there's someone with undiagnosed diabetes. The good news is that these days we know a lot more about managing diabetes and reducing your risk of developing it.
