Carly Hughes

Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)
Bachelor or Nutrition, Master of Dietetics

As the founder and director of Appetite for Nutrition, Carly has experience within the private and community sector and has successfully helped many individuals to increase their nutrition knowledge and achieve their healthy lifestyle goals.

Carly believes, “Healthy eating shouldn’t be…  creating rules, depriving yourself, dieting, or never enjoying your favourite foods again. Healthy eating is…. having a healthy relationship with your food and body. Reset the way you think, remove those demonizing labels from food such as ‘bad foods’ or ‘bad for me’, and rather listen to your body, be intuitive, and enjoy all foods mindfully.

Previous to Appetite for Nutrition, Carly has been involved in multiple community programs, including volunteering her time as a healthy supermarket tour leader for Diabetes Victoria, and her employment at Victoria University, where she supervised students deliver cooking classes and nutrition presentations to a wide range of community members including intellectually disabled, youth and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD).

Carlys special interests include educating and supporting individuals with their weight loss goals, heart health and diabetes management.
