Senior Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD), Registered Nurse (RN) & Founder of Flipside Nutrition.

Hi, I’m Madeleine Baumgart.

I teach people how to tap out of the diet mentality and trust their own body. To achieve this, I incorporate mindful eating techniques in line with the evidence-based, non-diet approach.

Using a Health At Every Size (HAES) ® framework in my practice, I apply a respectful approach to nutrition education. Consequently, you will walk away feeling heard and appreciated.

My consultations do not focus on weight. Instead, I discuss what food means to you, your favourite cuisine, and how you like to move you body. Your relationship with food and how that affects your food patterns is also explored.

Did you know?

I have lived experience with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) for 20 years, which led me to become a Dietitian.

Having worked in the healthcare industry for 20 years, I have seen it all! What is most concerning to me, is the rise of disordered eating related to nutrition misinformation.

Working with Madeleine

Commencing nutrition consultations can be a daunting experience. After all, Dietitians are known to be a privileged bunch of mostly thin, white females.

I wholeheartedly acknowledge my multiple privileges that allow me to work in my chosen careers. I am constantly learning and striving to do better.

Curious to see how I work?

I am not perfect, but I am here, I am open and I promise to do the best for you.
