About Amy Lilly
Amy is an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD), nutritionist and food lover. She completed a Master of Dietetics and a Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Sciences with Distinction from Deakin University in Melbourne.
Amy is passionate about working closely with clients experiencing digestive health concerns such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), coeliac disease and general discomfort, to help them find relief on their gut health journeys. She uses an individualised approach with each client, ensuring all advice is realistic and manageable for each individual and their lifestyle.
She has completed both the FODMAP Institute ‘IBS Management: The Low FODMAP Diet’ course and Monash University ‘Low FODMAP Diet for IBS’ online training course for health professionals and frequently uses the principles of these courses with her clients. She has also presented on the topics of coeliac disease and non-FODMAP IBS triggers with Free From + Allergy.
In addition to gut health, Amy also has a strong interest in supporting clients with prevention and management of chronic diseases (including pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease) and general healthy eating. She uses a non-diet approach in her practice, assisting clients to achieve their health and nutrition goals without engaging in fad diets or focusing on weight as a sole measure of progress or success. Her priority with all clients is helping them to achieve and maintain a healthy relationship with food and their bodies.
Outside of consulting, Amy enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, reformer pilates and spending quality time with family and friends.
