    Do you know your MCTs from your LCTs? How about sterols from stanols? What’s the difference between glucose and dextrose? Or probiotics and prebiotics? Why do we need calcium? What additive is number 330? How safe is acesulfame K? If you find yourself confused by food labels and ads, Catherine Saxelby’s comprehensive guide My Nutritionary will help you cut through the jargon and put the power of her nutrition know-how in your hands.

    Boost your nutrition know-how

    We live in a world with constantly changing nutrition advice – eat more of this, avoid that – but increasingly this information uses scientific terminology that few of us are familiar with. When everyone - from diet gurus to wellness bloggers to celebrity chefs and even your doctor - has suggestions for healthy eating, translating the latest nutrition jargon into useful terms can be overwhelming.

    Here's what others have to say

    • "What a great tool for cutting through the panic and fear surrounding 'additives' and 'chemicals' with clear, objective and evidence-based answers!"  Heidi Luxton, Accredited Practicing Dietitian, Gold Coast, Queensland
    • "This book helps me convey my nutrition messages more clearly to clients and facilitate their understanding to help them achieve their goals." Kaitlin Brown, Dietitian

    Why I wrote this book

    “I’ve come to realise that there’s so many weird and odd-sounding terms out there which makes it harder and harder for the average person to figure out how choose a healthy way of eating. So I explain the what and why of all of these in one handy guide - so you can swiftly find out what the heck the RDI or GI or a BMI really is!”
