Dr Joanna McMillan is a registered nutritionist with a PhD in nutritional science from the University of Sydney. She is also a trained ﬁtness leader and taught group exercise classes for almost 15 years. Her philosophy on diet is pretty simple - eat more fresh wholesome foods and fewer processed, packaged foods. In essence this means cooking more meals yourself from raw ingredients. But she tempers this with realistic advice on which modern food products and processing/preserving techniques can be useful in helping you achieve a healthy diet in today’s time-poor, results- orientated environment.
Joanna is a popular media spokesperson and is a Nine Network regular, and has been with TODAY for 5 years. She writes a weekly column for Sunday Life, is the nutrition expert for several ACP magazines, is a contributor to Body & Soul and is a regular guest on 2GB’s Health and Wellbeing show. Joanna has authored a number of books including the internationally published The Low GI Diet and The Low GI Diet Cookbook (Hachette Livre), Star Foods (ABC Books), and recently won Best Health, Nutrition or Diet Related Book at the Food Media Awards for Inner Health Outer Beauty (Random House). Joanna operates a nutrition consultancy in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
