Becoming an Accredited Sports Dietitian and working with athletes of all levels in all sports


Andrew Ho-Peng is an Accredited Practising Dietitian with the Dietitians Association of Australian (DAA) and an Accredited Sports Dietitian with Sports Dietitians Australia (SDA).

He consults in private practice and has worked for the Sons of the West men’s health program, in academia, as a consultant Dietitian and across a number of sports clubs. He is passionate about being fit and active and working with clients to achieve their personal best.

You can expect from a Dietitian like Andrew, accurate diet and nutritional information and advice, based on scientific evidence and a highly practical learning experience that will help you eat healthily to enhance your health and performance. His approach is individual personalised nutrition and coaching that focuses on building lifelong knowledge and skills.

Beyond sports, Andrew mentors emerging Dietitians and nutrition students and helps them build professional and personal competence.

We recently caught up with Andrew to ask him a couple of questions…

Why (and for who) do you advocate a low carb approach?

In my practice, I often use the low carb approach for weight management, Diabetes, PCOS and healthy eating and sometimes in sports and body composition management.

Evidence has shown that it can assist people with improvements in their cardiometabolic health, weight, wellbeing and sports performance. It’s important to understand that each person has their own personal goals, health and nutrition status, access to healthy food and personal/cultural dietary preferences so working with a Dietitian will ensure they are supported by the best quality scientific evidence and a pragmatic and sustainable individualised approach.
