  • The statement above is simply Biochemistry 101
  • However, what a difference a double bond makes to this fatty acid.
  • Palmitoleate, an omega-7 monounsaturated fatty acid now becomes a lipokine (a lipid hormone) that becomes very important for those who have insulin resistance.

Dietitian Wanted


I am a medical practitioner who has a thorough interest in preventative healthcare and someone who sees dietary and exercise modalities of treatment as the absolute foundation for any and all medical and surgical interventions.

I am in the process of developing the Activ8Health network in urban and rural areas and I am seeking enlightened Dietitians who see the value of clinical nutrition and not just see food as energy or simply a supply of nutrients.

I am encouraging Dietitians to work with Exercise Physiologists using the Activ8Health diet and exercise program based on solid scientific evidence and tested in the real world.

There is a strong business model that will enable you to derive an income beyond just the one-on-one remuneration you receive for your effort.

If this is of interest to you, please contact me via email at: and provide me with your contact details so that I can discuss what this exciting opportunity may hold for you.

Best wishes

Dr Rodney Lopez MBBS (Sydney University), GradCertNutriMed (RMIT)
