TOM SHAND

Registered Dietitian

I have been an NZ Registered Dietitian for over 9 years, and have experience working with clients to support their weight management goals, manage health issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.  I provide simple, practical, and effective advice to help you achieve your goals.

One of my passions and areas of expertise is sports nutrition. I have a postgraduate diploma in sports nutrition, and a degree in exercise science so I am perfectly placed to help you achieve your goals. I love all sport and have run many marathons myself, so I have an excellent understanding of the reality of juggling training and nutrition around a busy life.

First I listen, and then I will work with you to come up with ideas that will help you achieve your goals. The goals we set will be effective, realistic, simple, and practical. They will fit your lifestyle, medical history, and preferences, and I will be with you every step of the way to help you put these goals into action. My practice as a Dietitian is very much influenced by my personality. I like to connect with people and think practically how food fits into their lives. I'm not a foodie, so have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to make healthy food as easy as possible.

BSc Masters of Health Science majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics

I'm a classic weekend warrior, I have played most sports available in NZ, and love being in the outdoors. If I'm not with my young family, you'll find me surfing or running. In the past I trained my arse off and ran a sub 3hr marathon, which combined with my theoretical training has given me a real understanding of endurance nutrition. I have 9 years as a NZ Registered Dietitian, and have worked throughout New Zealand, and in the UK. I have specialised in diabetes and sports nutrition, and love helping people achieve their goals.

"Your help this past year has been amazing and it was so great to dial in the nutrition plan a bit more for both training and racing and pick up lots of tips along the way. Thank you!"   Fiona - Coast to Coast 2017 

 

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help in preparing for the marathon yesterday. It was so great having a really clear plan from you for race day - I followed your advice to the letter, felt fantastic and finished the race! (Although I'm not sure I want to have another gel again in a hurry ha). The heat was absolutely brutal - it topped out at 38 degrees - I think if I hadn't followed your plan I would have been like one of the poor people keeled over in the last 5km. So thanks again for helping me get over the finish line!"   G Meade - Great Wall of China Marathon 2017

I currently see my clients via phone or Skype. Face to face can be arranged by request in Whangarei.
