Meet David Finnin, Dietitian & Nutritionist

It’s easy to do something for days and weeks, but what’s the secret to turning short term change into lasting results? That’s where my passion lies. To me true success is about permanent change that results in better health and increased happiness.
Eating the right way is key to achieving this, but it goes far beyond kilojoules and macronutrients.

I’ve committed myself to understanding why some people have long-term success, while others don’t. While I certainly don’t have all the answers, what I’ve learnt is that how and why we eat is just as important as what we eat. Through experience I’ve observed common traps that people fall into, that work as road blocks to success. Often these traps are subtle, but they are strong enough to continually stop people from achieving their ultimate goals.
I’m here to help people identify and work through these traps, to find a path to long-term change.

As a dietitian I am continually amazed by the difference that food can make to someones health. My favourite part of the job is the connections that I build with many wonderful people, however short or long we spend together. I don’t have the solution to everyone’s problem, but I do guarantee that every person who walks through my door is listened to and respected, and the advice I give is no different to the advice I would give to my own family.
