A Little About Me


Dear you all, thank you for subscribing to this amazing channel. If you are keen on food, nutrition, health and a better quality of life, you will find yourself in the right place!

My name is Katherine Xi Lin (feel free to call me Kath or Kat), I am from a beautiful coastal city, Wenzhou, China. I have been living overseas since my mid-teens. I am proficient in speaking English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Wenzhou dialect. I am currently a student dietitian (course accredited by DAA), studying in Melbourne, Australia. I’m in my final year of my university Honours Degree (Nutrition & Dietetics) from Monash University, with which the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences as world’s leading faculties for its profoundness and excellence.

I’m currently undertaking my public health nutrition placement with a Federal government body at Cardinia Shire Council. We have a 10-year project working on improving the local food system in the Cardinia Shire. I have also obtained clinical experience as a student dietitian, in multiple cultural and clinical settings. For instance, I have worked in Tan Tock Seng Hospital and A*STAR Clinical Nutrition Research Centre in Singapore; and also Eastern Health (Box Hill Hospital & Maroondah Hospital) in Australia. These placement experience has equipped me with research skills and clinical decision-making and management on various clinical / medical conditions. If you have doubts about different diets, your nutritional requirements at different life stages, special dietary needs for clinical diseases, or confusions about foods and novel diets, I will do my best to clarify for you with reliable information, what I learnt from university and my overseas clinical experience.

One simple motivation I had that started me off on this endless journey on dietetics is to save people before it is too late. There are many ways to do this, I choose not to feed them with medicines, but nutrients from nature. Because a full recovery is nothing without appropriate nutrition.

I am endeavouring to enlighten and inspire you all with latest published clinical and dietetic information, moreover clarify on common misunderstandings on nutrition or diet. My plan is to post one to two articles per week, depending on my busy schedule. All articles will be bilingual, in Chinese and English, to serve more readers.
