Nicole Dynan

Consulting at Balmain, Leichhardt & Neutral Bay. Principal Dietitian for Corporate Nutrition Service.

Nicole Dynan is the founder of The Good Nutrition Co., which she established in early 2012.

As an accredited dietitian who has consulted to – and listened to the stories of – many hundreds of people, Nicole has unique insight into the emotional drivers that help people make positive changes in their lives to better support their health and wellbeing. 

Whether she’s working with adults or children, recreational or professional sportspeople, or junior athletes and their families, she knows that no two people are the same, and that desired outcomes can only be achieved by taking a personalised approach. This means taking the time to understand the issues at hand, designing an appropriate program that includes both short- and long-term goals, and providing support along the way.

Nicole completed her Masters Research Project at the RPAH Allergy Unit in Sydney which led to a particular interest in the management of food allergy and intolerance. Her other specific areas of expertise include:

* Weight management, including the psychology of eating and Mindful Eating approaches

* Elimination diets and Low FODMAP diets

* Digestive health, including IBS and IBD

* Chronic disease management, including diabetes, high cholesterol and heart health

* Sports Nutrition, including ISAK skin fold measures

Nicole is a media ambassador for the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet Online, and dietitian for the NSW Elite Gymnastics Boys Team. She has worked with members of the NSW State Men’s Hockey Team, national level road cyclists and swimmers, and participants in the 100km Oxfam Australia Trailwalker event.

Nicole is the proud mother of two children and is happy to say that her love of food has rubbed off on her husband who, from time to time, has been known to cook a wicked seafood paella.
