Nutrition and wellbeing expert, award-winning author
Dr Joanna McMillan is a popular media spokesperson on nutrition and wellbeing and a regular on Nine Network's Today show as their resident nutrition expert. She also makes frequent appearances on Kerri-Anne, ACA and Nine News.
Joanna is a registered nutritionist and an accredited practising dietitian with a PhD in nutritional science from the University of Sydney. She is also a trained fitness leader and taught group exercise classes for almost 15 years.
Joanna is an accomplished presenter with a powerful and passionate presentation style which thoroughly engages her audiences. As a keynote speaker, she inspires people to ‘Find Your Inner Mojo' - that vitality and wellness that makes you feel on top of the world, able to handle whatever life throws at you and perform at your best for work or play.
Her philosophy on diet is pretty simple - eat more fresh wholesome foods and fewer processed, packaged foods. In essence this means cooking more meals yourself from raw ingredients. But she tempers this with realistic advice on which modern food products and processing/preserving techniques can be useful in helping you achieve a healthy diet in today's time-poor, results- orientated environment.
Joanna writes a weekly column for Sunday Life, is the nutrition expert for several ACP magazines, is a contributor to Body & Soul and is a regular guest on 2GB's Health and Wellbeing show.
She has also authored a number of books including the internationally published The Low GI Diet, The Low GI Diet Cookbook (Hachette Livre) and Star Foods. In 2010 she won Best Health, Nutrition or Diet Related Book at the Food Media Awards for Inner Health Outer Beauty.
Joanna is a committee member of the Australian Lifestyle Medicine Association, a member of the Dietitian's Association of Australia, The Nutrition Society and the Public Health Association of Australia. She operates a nutrition consultancy in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
Joanna has worked with the Calliden Group on 3 occasions now to speak to a combined audience of over 200 women about general wellbeing. Our dealings with Joanna from onset have been professional yet executed with utmost simplicity. Joanna has captivated audiences with practical advice and received many compliments along the way. She has taken the time to tailor her tips to suit individuals who have been most grateful for her support. Joanna is a picture of glowing health who is living proof that her beliefs work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joanna and will definitely engage in her services again in the future. 10 out of 10 on every level.
Joanna was received very well by the audience. Feedback was incredibly positive and her presentation was incredibly professional, on topic and she was very easy and lovely to deal with.
