Stacey and Chris Hughes are the husband and wife founders of one of Australia’s leading dietitian practices, CQ Nutrition. Chris is an accredited dietitian with 10 years of experience coaching everyday Aussies to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Meanwhile, Stacey is the business and marketing director of the brand, responsible for growing the chain from just one clinic in Rockhampton to five locations across Queensland (and growing).

The flagship program is the amazing SCOOD $50k Health Challenge which provides dedicated support and motivation to participants to help them transform their lives. It also offers mega cash prizes totaling $50k for the man and woman who lose the most body fat over the four week program. More than three thousand kilos have been lost on the program in the last year and the average weight loss is 4.4 kilos. Some participants have a 10% change in body fat—or more. This success is a great source of pride to Chris and Stacey who love nothing more than helping people achieve amazing weight loss and start a new healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
