Hilit has an appetite for all things connected to nutrition, health, fitness, serenity and their close relationship with your mental well-being. She‘s a strong advocate of empowering people through scientifically based nutritional knowledge that can be used in both a practical and fun way. She believes that there are many inter-connected pieces to one’s health puzzle and that each one is important for long-term success. She understands that your relationship with food and your body is a fundamental element of your journey and that nutrition education, tools and support are needed to guide you into the direction of optimized health.
Hilit has years of clinical work experience after working in a top South African private hospital for over 7 years. She has been running her own private practice, Hilit Milner Dietetics, for the last 7 years. Through these she has gained a wealth of clinical experience and can truly motivate and connect with patients on a personal level.
She has a passion for holistic preventative personalized nutrition. She enjoys working in the fields of Nutrigenomics (genetic testing), culinary genomics, emotional eating, women’s health (nutrition in pregnancy, postpartum, PCOS), gut health, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. She also has a lot of experience in areas such as veganism/ vegetarianism as well as chronic diseases of lifestyle, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, renal and weight loss.
Transforming her knowledge into delicious and wholesome foods in her kitchen is what really gets Hilit creatively salivating. Globetrotting, basking in nature, tasting new flavours and learning about a vast array of cultural cuisines and traditions is what fills her heart with joy and her dishes with spice.
Finding the balance in life is one of her core values. Inspiring people to do the same is her drive.

Sunrise by HM is an engaging wellness hub, where you can truly find what feeds you. It’s where topical scientifically-based dietetic information infuses with cooking, travel, culture, storytelling and all things WHOLEsome.
It is not only a platform for you to relate to the challenges encountered on your journey to cultivating a balanced healthy lifestyle, but rather a space for you to gain the recipe needed to empower and motivate you to nourish yourself.
This entails, learning how to nourish your body, mind and soul through the foods you eat, the way you move, the language with which you talk to yourself, the implementation of mindfulness and the way with which whet your mental and spiritual appetite.
It is a delicate blend of acting on your thirst for being ‘in shape’ with the ability to also stop, take a deep cleansing breath in, and steadily smell the roses along the way.
It is the decisions that we make today that determine in which state of mind, body and soul we will watch tomorrow’s sunrise.
Come on a journey of nutrition, wellness and balance with me and discover what truly feeds you…and nourish yourself to your sunrise.
