Susie Burrell is one of Australia’s leading dietitians, known for her extensive background in both nutrition and psychology and for her practical, easy to understand approach to diet, nutrition and wellbeing.
Susie Burrell is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and completed both her Honours degrees in Nutrition & Dietetics and Psychology at Wollongong University.
Early in her career, she spent almost 10 years working at The Children’s Hospital and with elite sporting teams including the St George Illawarra Dragons and the South African Blue Bulls where she gained much applied experience working with children, families and elite athletes.
Susie is currently the resident dietitian on Channel 7’s Sunrise and has a weekly radio segment on the top rating 2GB Afternoon Program with Chris Smith. Susie currently contributes regularly to smh.com.au, Australian Women’s Fitness, CLEO and Woman’s Day magazines and she is the consultant dietitian at Sydney University Sport, Body Science International, Go Natural Foods, Peppercorn Food Company and SIMPLE skincare.
With a love of writing, comes the writing of books and in 2009, her first book “Losing the last 5kg” was launched. Since then she has also released “Lose Weight Fast” and her third book, “The Monday to Friday Diet” was released in January 2013.
When she is not writing or speaking to corporates on all areas of health, nutrition and performance, she maintains a busy practice at a leading sports medicine facility in Sydney. Here she helps children, adults and athletes work towards achieving their individual health and weight loss goals.
Currently Susie is also completing a Master’s Degree in Coaching Psychology at Sydney University which takes up much of her spare time but as you would expect, she is a fan of all things health and wellbeing, and so in her limited downtime can usually be found indulging in long walks around Sydney or entertaining friends with healthy, home prepared meals. She also has an incurable love of Icehouse, Burmese cats and eyelashes.
