Joanna McMillan Price's Biography

Joanna is a registered nutritionist and accredited practising dietician 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. Joanna's ability to translate science into everyday messages has made her a sought after media spokesperson. She is passionate about quality food, loves to eat and loves to cook, and firmly believes that these qualities lie at the heart of healthy living and achieving the best possible diet.


Her philosophy on diet is quite simple and in accordance with what most of us instinctively know. That is to eat more fresh wholesome foods and fewer processed, packaged foods. In essence this means cooking more meals yourself from the 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 truly believes that many of us don't know how good we could feel, how much better we could look and how much our work performance could improve, if only we ate well and moved more.
Health and nutrition are topics of rising importance on all of our minds. Is what we are eating healthy? Should we be having more of this or more of that? In the organisational setting, numerous companies are looking to new health initiatives. Which one is the best? How do we go about it?
Answering those questions and many more has long been a passion for Dr. Joanna McMillan Price, Nutrition Expert on the ‘Today Show’ with over a decade of expertise to draw upon. As an accomplished author, Joanna has published several books on nutrition and diets, including ‘Five Vital Steps’, ‘Star Foods’, ‘The Low GI Diet’ and ‘The Low GI Diet Cookbook’, building on the success of ‘Reality Food’. Her journalistic career has seen her write and consult for numerous publications, including ‘Life etc.’, and ‘Slimming & Health’. Her skilled advice has also been sought as a member of the Expert Advisory Board of ‘McCann Health Care’.
Her media experience has grown extensively as a spokesperson for health and wellbeing, including appearances on ‘The Catch Up’, ‘Today Tonight’, ‘A Current Affair’, several national news shows, and ‘What’s Good for you’.
Her powerful and passionate presentation style ensures the rapt attention of audiences through an experience of learning and personal growth in relation to wellbeing. Her versatility as a speaker allows her to lead conference proceedings as master of ceremonies, while conducting educational and motivational team building sessions around health initiatives.
