Hi there, my name is Justine and I am a South African qualified, and Israeli licensed Clinical Dietician and a Mindset Mentor. I have worked in private practice since qualifying at the end of 1999 from UCT.
I have experienced my own weight challenges as well as struggles with emotional eating, and after turning 40 had to change my approach to eating to better support my body.
I get how hard it can be to feel like you are fighting against yourself and that is why it is my mission to empower women just like you to understand your body so that you can work WITH it and NOT against it.
The main focus of the work I do is to support busy women in midlife (just like you) who are feeling frustrated with their weight & confused by information overload.
I hear how tired you are of self sabotaging, of constantly fighting with yourself and how out of control you feel when it comes to food.
I help you to understand the changes you see happening in your body and how best to nourish yourself, according to the latest research and science.
I give you the tools you need in order to improve your energy levels, mood and sleep and to manage your sugar cravings, emotional eating and weight, without deprivation or restriction.
I help my clients, who are women just like you, to achieve these results through a sustainable, holistic and intuitive non-diet approach, enabling them to feel confident with the food choices they make and transforming their relationship with food once and for all, so they can finally feel comfortable and at peace in their unique bodies.

What Clients Are Saying
"I can personally say, Justine is simply amazing. I didn't want another restrictive diet to govern my life. With Justine I was able to learn how to adapt my eating habits and food choices into a healthy lifestyle. And the bonus was going down 3kg on the scale! I am grinning!"
S.R.(Israel) after completing 12 weeks on "The Wellness Upgrade" program
“I wanted to work with a nutritionist who would both feel like a friend to me but also not let me off the hook and excuse everything I did. I have spend over 20 years reading every book and doing every diet and so i warned Justine that there wouldn’t be much she could teach me. I was wrong.
Through working with Justine, I learned to find a new voice in my head - not the voice that says “go on, eat that, you deserve it” and not the voice that says “omg i cant believe you ate like that. Tomorrow you need to just drink water” but a third voice; an adult, rational kind voice.
I learned how to make better choices with my food, without feeling like I was being punished, and even after years have now gone by since we worked together, her teachings have stuck with me and help guide me on a daily basis”
S.R. (48 years old)
I'm 50, and Over the last few years I had tried intermittent dieting, among other diets, and despite the fact that I felt like I was barely eating two meals a day and I was careful about exercise, I couldn't lose the extra weight that was slowly building up on my belly and my hips.
I heard about Justine, and she came highly recommended, so I decided to treat myself to a few sessions with her.
She was extremely thorough as she collected data about my eating habits and my health concerns, and then she created a meal plan - not a diet! - that was specifically tailored for me.
As it turned out, I wasn't eating enough - how crazy is that?!
I started eating the right foods in the right quantities (carbs!!!) And I went from barely eating two meals a day with little to no carbs, to eating 3 square balanced meals PLUS two snacks at specific times.
My meal plan consisted of all the foods I love to eat, and I'm loving it. It isn't a diet, but a way of life, a way to keep healthy and trim while still enjoying food.
I was eating MUCH more than I was used to, kept up my exercise routine, and the centimetres started to come off everywhere.
It's been barely 3 months, and I lost 12 cm off my hips, and 9 off my belly. My back fat is almost non existent and my clothes are hanging off me. More importantly, I feel amazing about myself.
If you're looking to change your appearance and stop the extra pounds from settling on your body, and feel great about yourself, call Justine.

I came to Justine with some hesitation around the entire endeavour of seeing a nutritionist.
Justine was sensitive and thoughtful in making recommendations that were feasible in the context of my busy life.
She cheered on my victories and patiently supported me at times when my progress stalled. There was never any shaming or judgment, and she encouraged me in the process of setting personalized goals.
I continue to employ various strategies and insights she gave me and plan to do so for the foreseeable future.
Thanks so much Justine!"
I wanted to share a huge win with you and thank you so much for helping me get to this point!
For the first time today I didn't weigh or measure my dinner, but rather used your guidance about taking as much as I felt was right for me.
Usually I would have had more but instead I started with a smaller amount and was able to stop when I felt comfortable and not too full.
For the first time I feel that I have turned a corner in my relationship with food.
I feel that I can trust myself again
I am so grateful!!!
