Wholefoods Nutritionist is a Brisbane-based nutrition and wellness company founded by Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist, Jarrah Curry.
Jarrah is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) with a passion for improving her client's quality of life through healthy eating.
Jarrah graduated with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Bachelor of Health Science program, majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics in 2011. Since then, she has gained extensive experience in weight management, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and food allergy and intolerance.
Early on in her carer, Jarrah discovered an interest in the human microbiota. This lead her to explore the science behind specific pro-biotic and pre-biotic therapy, small intestinal bacterial (and/or fungal) overgrowth and the world of food allergies and intolerance. Jarrah is highly experienced in the Low FODMAP diet, the RPAH Elimination Diet, the SIBO diet, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), and Gluten free and Dairy free diets, among others.
In more recent times, Jarrah has turned her focus to behaviour change, and its application in sustainable weight-management. Borrowing techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Reasoned-action Approach (RAA), Jarrah helps improve her client's self efficacy and capacity for positive change. Jarrah is skilled in the application of energy-controlled diets, a non-dieting approach to weight-loss and the application of the Ketogenic diet, tailoring each nutrition intervention to suit the individual.
On a personal note, Jarrah is a born and bred Queenslander, who loves all things food including cooking, baking, eating out and going to farmers markets. She also has an adventurous side and can often be spotted scaling a cliff or a rock-climbing wall in her spare time.
