There’s no denying that Australia’s obesity rates are continuously on the rise and there is little education in place to show the public the effects of added sugar & sodium, high carb & large portioned diets can have not just on our weight, but on our general health & wellbeing.

That’s why our founder, Kate Save, an accredited practising dietitian & exercise physiologist, started Be Fit Food.

Kate Save

Kate Save is a clinical dietitian, exercise physiologist, diabetes educator, and successful entrepreneur. She is the CEO and Founder of Be Fit Food, Australia’s leading dietitian and doctor-designed meal provider which has delivered 3+ Million meals nationally.

With 20+ years’ experience working in clinical health and fitness, Kate is a credible voice on all things nutrition and wellbeing.

"Growing at 1500% overnight, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy!"

Having started one of Australia’s most successful healthy meal delivery businesses, Kate is also an astute entrepreneur with an inspiring business story to tell that has been widely covered in the media. Among Be Fit Food’s many accolades, the company was named Telstra’s Victorian Business of the Year in 2018 and #29 in the AFR (Australian Financial Review) Fast Starters in 2019 and the Telstra Victorian Business of the Year again in 2022 for Championing Health.

sharing her wisdom on health, or her learnings in business. She is a regular media commentator and is often called upon by Australia’s leading news, health, and wellbeing titles to lend her expertise.

Be Fit Food has one main goal: to help Australians to eat themselves better.

The programs give our customers the food, resources and dietitian support they need to healthily lose weight rapidly and sustain their weight loss through eating nutrient-rich, real food rather than resorting solely on shakes, bars or detox teas.

The recipes are created by our team of dietitians and are designed to bring the body into mild nutritional ketosis, which makes the body burn stored fat rather than carbohydrates and helps our customers to feel fuller for longer, have more energy throughout their day, sleep better and help towards other health benefits such as lowered cholesterol & balanced blood sugar levels.
