Our resident team of dietitians, Shelly Meltzer & Associates, offer comprehensive and customised dietary services for anyone wanting to optimise their diet for health and performance. The practice focuses on delivering scientifically-based solutions that link the science and practice of nutrition.

We keep abreast with the latest scientific developments through our collaboration with the University of Cape Town (Division Exercise Science and Sports Medicine (ESSM) and the Division of Human Nutrition (Department of Human Biology) and have a strong focus on real life practical interventions.
