Junk Food

Have you had junk food today?

What is junk food?

Is there such a thing as junk food?

According to Wikipedia, Junk is rubbish, trash or items of little or no value”

According to Wikipedia Food is ”any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for an organism”

Perhaps we need to stop calling it junk food

Perhaps Junk food is really TREAT food in disguise.

I prefer to think of chocolate as a treat, not as junk.

I prefer to think of marshmallows (or any other confectionery) as a treat, not as junk.

I prefer to think of ice-cream as a treat, not as junk.

I prefer to think of potato chips as a treat, not as junk.

I prefer to think of fast food as….cheap and nasty, harsh but true!

I prefer to think of high sugar drinks as….liquid sugar.

What about you?

Enjoy your treat, not your junk,

Savour your treat, and forget about junk!

Medical Nutrition Therapy in Bariatric Surgery

Principal Dietitian Jo-Anne Dembo



I am proud to have completed an intense and exciting three day course in Melbourne (November 2018), with the most up-to-date clinical evidence based research for Medical Nutrition Therapy in Weight Loss Surgery.  After working in this area for several years, it never ceases to amaze me how much the research and expertise continues to progress and advance.

I am passionate about weight loss, both non-surgical and bariatric surgery. And I believe everyone has their own individual journey to achieve their own results.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge with those who are thinking about weight loss surgery, or who have had surgery both recently or some time ago.
