In short, she counsels her patients on healthy living and ageing well. She changed her medical practice after becoming dissatisfied with the conventional model of “palliative”, chronic disease medicine while she was running the High Care Unit of a prominent Cape Town tertiary hospital.

    South Africa

    At Real Food Dietitians, South African registered dietitians Tamzyn Murphy Campbell and Bridget Surtees believe in a whole food, real food approach for everyone. In simple terms, this means: no refined carbohydrates, no packaged foods and no added sugars. By eating this way, they say we will naturally eat a lower-carbohydrate, higher-fat diet. They don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Some individuals’ medical history will dictate a very low-carbohydrate approach; others may tolerate higher levels. The same goes for fats. Tamzyn and Bridget provide private, couple, family and Skype nutritional consultations. Their focus is on adults with overweight/obesity, PCOS, features of the metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, hyperlipidaemia, overweight, central adiposity), diabetes (type 1 and type 2) and sports people who want to adapt to an LCHF lifestyle. They provide guidance for healthy eating during pregnancy and nutrition through the ages. They are available for group talks and nutritional training and education.
