    How can I get a diet plan written up?

    I'm looking for a diet plan to help me lose up to 20kg, not fussy about how long it takes but I can't stick to plans unless they're 100% strict. I prefer knowing what to eat and when to eat it, rather than just not eating certain things. Does anyone know somebody or a website, or what kind of professional can write me up one?

    A dietitian is the person to go to for a diet plan! They can take into account your age, gender, height and lifestyle to determine the best plan for you. 

    You may be able to get a referral from your GP, which will enable you to get some money back from medicare. 

    Please feel free to get in contact with me if you have any more questions.

    I agree with Jessica that an Accredited Practising Dietitian would be a good person to talk with - you can find one here: http://daa.asn.au/ .

    “Accredited Practising Dietitian” is a legally protected term - only people like Jessica who have completed relevant professional training can use that job description.

    I agree with my fellow dietitian Jessica above and second that of Dr Simon Eastbrook-Smith. You will get the most benefit from seeing an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) for your diet plan. APD's are the only health professionals appropriately qualified to give out individualised dietary advice in which you are asking.

    There are many other professionals providing individualised meal plans and diet plans out there however, many are not appropriately qualified and can provide potentially dangerous plans that could result in serious consequences.

    To find an APD head to: http://www.daa.asn.au/for-the-public/find-an-apd/ to find one near you :)
