Founder & Director
I created Newtown Nutrition in 2000, fresh-faced out of Uni, eager to help my clients to change the way they eat to improve their health.
On this journey I have worked with thousands of clients over the past 17 years for many different issues in many areas of health. So much has changed in that time as I learnt more about nutrition (there’s always something new!), about people and about business.
I love helping clients to improve their life by taking control of their own eating and health. As I began to specialise more in the areas I am passionate about, such as food intolerances and gut symptoms, I realised that all clients deserved to work with a dietitian that has a passion and expertise in their field. And of course dietitians do best when they get a chance to focus on what they love to do and what they do best!
So my focus has changed to create an environment that provides those two things: I am now focused on creating a team of dietitians each with their own area of passion and expertise.
As Director of Newtown Nutrition I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with such a talented team of dietitians, to help them offer our clients the best support in their area of specialty.
Liz has supported thousands of clients, both local and from afar via Skype, and has extensive experience in helping people with:
- Gut issues: Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), food intolerances, FODMAPs, abnormal bowel habits, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, diverticular disease etc.
- Food chemical intolerance / FAILSAFE diet / RPAH Elimination diet (for range of symptoms involving the skin, respiratory, nervous, digestive systems etc.)
- Food allergies
- Coeliac disease
- Improving energy, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue
- Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating

Do you struggle to use tofu? Do you find that every time to you try to make a tofu dish, it’s a flop, and you end up grabbing take-away instead?…
Research shows that your gut microbiome changes within 3 weeks of starting a Low FODMAP diet, negatively impacting the number and types of beneficial bacteria in your gut.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t try a low FODMAPs diet to help you improve symptoms of IBS, we frequently use this first step strategy with our clients as research shows that 3 out of 4 people with IBS get some symptom improvement on a low FODMAPs diet.
However our dietitians aim to transition our clients from a low FODMAPs diet so that they are able to broaden their diet to a full range of foods again, which makes cooking at home and socializing with friends much easier
This will also help to nurture their good gut bacteria which will help to
– Reduce gut inflammation so their gut is happier and less sensitive to stress
– Reduce inflammation through the rest of their body as well which can help to
– Maintain a healthy body weight
– Improve heart health, such as cholesterol and triglycerides
– Improve blood sugar control
– Improve mood and mental health
