Niki Mohtat
Accredited Practising Dietitian and a memberof the Dietitian Assocaition of Australia.

BA Health Sc. Nutritional Medicine
Masters Nutrition and Dietetics

Niki is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and a member of the Dietitian Association of Australia. After finishing her Bachelor degree in Medical Science she went on to complete her Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Sydney in 2017. The extensive knowledge gained at university, coupled with her continuous effort to conduct her own research, has given her a deep understanding of nutrition and the human body. She strives to always be up to date with the latest scientific evidence and has a natural ability to convert complex concepts into layman’s terms.

Niki is passionate about a holistic approach to nutrition, where all factors that affect health are considered. These include the role of emotion on food choices, stress, sleep quality, genetic predisposition and biochemistry. She believes that the number on the scale should not determine self-worth. She aims for her clients to feel good from the inside, which in turn allows them to glow from the outside. Niki is passionate about helping women to achieve optimal health especially during pregnancy, where mother’s nutrition is so paramount. She also enjoys working with individuals with various health conditions, in particular, hormonal imbalance, PCOS, diabetes, obesity and gut-related conditions.

Niki enjoys cooking and creating recipes that are delicious and healthy! Yoga and meditation are part of her daily practice and she also enjoys going for scenic walks all around Sydney.

“My mission is to educate and inspire people to improve their relationship with food, and implement a healthy lifestyle that is not a short-term fix, but rather a way of life.”

Niki is available every Wednesday
