I have found Barbara to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of nutrition. During our weekly sessions she has always been able to offer suggestions of an alternative food or supplements to help with weight loss and improved mood. Barbara is upbeat, solutions focused and delights in her clients successes. She has helped me develop a healthy attitude towards food and has contributed hugely to improving my lifestyle with careful, tailored personal advice and guidance from what new healthy products to buy at the supermarket to portion sizes without weighing to daily exercise goals. Barbara takes a holistic approach to helping her clients reach their health and lifestyle goals.

I am so glad I have had Barbara to help change my eating habits. Before my weight loss surgery, I lost 15kgs by just making the right food choices and exercising.

I continue to meet with Barbara monthly to keep on track to reach my goal and will continue this in the future

I would recommend Barbara to anyone surgery or not

I am so glad I have had Barbara to help me on this journey. As a weight loss surgery patient, I found dealing with a new way of healthy eating hard. I became a client of Barbara Rigg early on after surgery because I found making good healthy food choices daunting. Barbara has been brilliant, and has helped me not only with nutrition advice, but also finding a new relationship with food, and a way of making healthy eating a pleasure not a big problem!

I have been liaising with Barbara Rigg for the last twelve months while trying to lose weight and improve overall nutrition. During this time I have found her to be very professional, supportive, encouraging, committed, motivating, knowledgeable and always available at the end of the phone during possible 'moments of weakness'!
I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Barbara to anyone wanting professional advice on nutrition and weight management.


For several years, Barbara has been a real help to me in managing my long term Type 2 diabetes and trying to achieve weight loss as part of that. Her advice is always encouraging and very practical and takes into account the pressures that come with busy business life. Certainly, the best fit for me after several others I’ve tried previously.


Barbara Rigg, the principal of lifestyle Nutrition and Health is a very friendly, extremely knowledgeable lady who I believe is a leader in her field. She makes you feel at ease from the moment you meet and throughout every session. She always greets you with a welcoming smile and with constant encouragement, clear advice and instructions keep me always motivated to do well. Barbara listens carefully and provides a clear pathway to move forward tailored specifically to your circumstances and individual needs and is always a source of motivation through the provision of valuable information, tips, recipes and suggested dietary needs. I would thoroughly endorse and not hesitate to recommend her to anybody seeking a Nutritionist/Dietitian of the highest order.
