BHSc New Zealand Registered Dietitian
Founder of WeightWise
MaryRose graduated from Otago University and completed a post graduate year to become a Registered Dietitian. She spent the following ten years overseas working as a Dietitian in Australia, England and Saudi Arabia. The great diversity of cultures she has worked with and their varied associated difficulties have enabled MaryRose to develop a wider than usual knowledge base. Her experiences have enabled her to be particularly resourceful in terms of helping with specific client needs.
Since her return to Auckland over 20 years ago, MaryRose has specialised in the area of weight loss. She understands the medical issues associated with excess weight and has seen first hand the difficulties and poor results that dieting offers.
WeightWise was established by MaryRose in her campaign to provide an easier, more successful and more permanent way to lose weight.
MaryRose is a well-known and highly regarded authority on weight loss and nutrition. Working closely with GPs and the wider medical profession, she is a regular presenter of nutritional advice at many levels in the community and is frequently consulted for her expert opinion on both radio and television. She featured most recently as a consultant dietitian on the television series What’s Really in our Food?

From my first consultation, I felt incredibly positive about achieving my goal. I was referred to WeightWise primarily to help reduce my cholesterol which, due to a family history of heart disease needs to be very low.
