ALL ABOUT ME
Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist
Hi! I'm Mandy, an ice cream loving, anti-diet Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who is here to help you reconnect with food and your body!
I spent many years on a dieting roller coaster. First, I was very restrictive and would only eat "clean" foods for fear of being unhealthy. Then, I got to college and wasn't sure how to eat, so I ended up stuck in what seemed like a never ending binge-purge cycle of dieting. In addition, the stress of college led to plenty of emotional and stress eating as well. I was also obsessed with exercise. I felt like I had to burn off EVERY calorie that I ate or I would be unhealthy.
I was exhausted and unhappy with my body. I started getting deeper into my nutrition coursework and then after graduation completed my year long Dietetic Internship.
After my internship, I got married and that is when I truly started reconnecting with my body. I didn't want to spend my days at work and my evenings counting my calories and killing myself at the gym instead of enjoying my time as a newlywed.
I knew that I wanted to channel my nutrition knowledge as well as reconnect with my body. Over the next few years, I spent hours researching, reading books and doing plenty of trial and error to finally figure out how to find true balance and retrain my body and my mind.
I was alone and clueless when I first started my intuitive eating journey, but you don't have to be. I started my business to help others heal their relationship with their food, their minds and their bodies in order to achieve true balance and food freedom.
Now, I have rewired my brain to know exactly what my body needs and when it needs it in order to achieve optimal health. I eat WHAT I want, WHEN I want. No more hopping on and off diet bandwagons or playing the guessing game of what will work. The pure joy of being able to eat some cake and ice cream for my kid's birthdays or going out to dinner for date night without an ounce of GUILT is truly life changing.
Let's go on this journey together and I promise that you will never think of food the same way again!
