Where the power lies

Your genetic coding cannot be changed, BUT the behaviour of your genes can be optimized through the
choices you make- the food you eat, the lifestyle you lead and through particular supplement inclusions
where needed.

Your environment interacts with your genes, switching them on and off like light switches, resulting in a
particular health outcome. This means that your genes are not your destiny in this case and that the
power lies with you.

The test results are NOT diagnostic of any condition but rather give you the information needed for you
to make lifestyle and dietary changes that will have the greatest impact.

When you partner with Sunrise by HMDietetics you not only get an in-depth understanding of how your
body works, but you also get the “how to” when it comes to the environmental and dietary changes you

history, personal preferences, lifestyle, concerns and goals to give you targeted and accurate steps that

what patients say

“I can only shower Hilit with praise and cannot thank you enough. Her methods have worked for me, I no longer walk about pulling my trousers up because they were too tight around my waist and slipping down, but rather pulling them up because they are too loose now. My clothes fit me again. I feel great. I feel more confident within myself and motivated. She never pressured me once and this was a very big plus and her willingness to explain how to plan each mealtime made the journey easier.  My weight loss journey was not without huge effort but without her help it would have been impossible to achieve what I’ve achieved “


“Hilit is the first dietician that I have ever been to (and trust me I have been to a lot) who I truly feel understands that there is such a vital link between weight loss and genetics and that its imperative to look at the individual’s health in their entirety.” As someone who has struggled with weight loss for as long as I can remember, I have been to so many dieticians that I would be able to convince anyone I am a dietitian myself. Hilit is the first person that I have ever worked with, that makes me feel like they truly understand the importance of looking at one’s health in totality and not just dishing out a diet”


“I have really loved working with Hilit. She is so knowledgeable and so willing to share her knowledge and learnings from her years of experience. She is very kind and compassionate, and her unbelievable knowledge of nutrition, combined with the insight from the genetic testing make this an incredibly useful and valuable process that I would highly recommend.”


“I have never felt stronger, more alert and healthier in many years”


“It’s been a privileged experience to be guided and advised by Hilit Miner. Her professionalism, attention to detail, depth of knowledge and holistic approach to wellness in general, coupled with her empathy and patience is remarkable. I have referred many other patients to her who have been equally impressed.”


“This journey with Hilit has been life-changing for me.  I had tried various other dieticians and health coaches over a number of years, with no results.  The way Hilit engages with me, with no judgment and complete support for my physical and emotional journey, was the thing that finally got me to change my relationship to food and a healthy lifestyle.  Her incredible knowledge and insight as well as her ability to explain my genetic roadmap has been a game-changer. She empowered me to continue the health journey on my own.  I am eternally grateful for Hilit’s constant support and encouragement throughout my journey.  I recommend her to anyone who is looking to lose weight, increase motivation, change their lifestyle, or learn about their body and genetics.”
