Graduating from the University of the Sunshine Coast with a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics, Tess Keightley has joined the Youfoodz Weight Loss Refreshed team as a dietitian, helping to take the guesswork out of weight loss.

Keightley’s experience as a dietitian is varied; she has worked with critically ill individuals in a clinic setting, with clients one-on-one for individualised nutrition support and now as part of the Youfoodz family. As an accredited practicing dietitian and nutritionist, Tess is passionate about helping Youfoodz customers achieve long-term goals in a healthy, sustainable, and maintainable way with delicious, healthy food. “My philosophy when it comes to nutrition is all foods in moderation. I’m all about sustainable, maintainable eating that promotes health but is also enjoyable,” Keightley said.

Knowing what to eat, when, and how much can be an ordeal these days. Many popular diets on the market that promise too-good-to-be-true results may work in the short-term but typically don’t in the long-term. “Healthy living to me is about finding balance between all aspects of my life – taking care of myself both mentally and physically. I know I’m living a healthy lifestyle when I feel good and strong, have a healthy, happy and positive mindset and have time and space to do things that make me feel grounded,” she said.
