About The Anti-Diet Dietitian
Get ready to do some hard work!
I know that healing from disordered eating or an eating disorder is not easy.
In fact, it could be the hardest thing you do in your life.
By learning about intuitive eating, weight stigma, and health at every size, you can:
*Learn to make peace with food
*Improve your body image
*Nourish your body adequately in order to support good health
*Move your body in a way that feels joyful and natural
*Have energy, time, and desire to think about things outside of food/body

Author and Founder
I’m Brandy, a registered dietitian, Health at Every Size practitioner, and author of The Anti-Diet Workbook.
If you are searching for a way to take care of your health but aren’t quite sure how, I’ve got you covered! I provide nutrition counseling that will get you there.
I have been a dietitian since 2016. Unfortunately, I did a lot of harm in the early part of my career – especially when counseling in a weight loss clinic and even working with people wanting bariatric surgery.
Working in this setting did show me one thing (which I can also confirm from personal experience):
DIETS DON’T WORK for weight loss! In fact, research shows that over 95% of intentional weight loss attempts fail.
That is why I practice Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) through an Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size lens. I make evidenced-based recommendations to support a wide range of diseases without telling you to lose weight.
Weight-inclusive counseling means I do not judge your health based on your weight or BMI. I truly believe that a person can be healthy at any body size.
I treat every patient with the respect and acknowledge that you are the expert on your body!
In our sessions together, I teach you the basic principles of intuitive eating and help you reject diet culture so that you can make behavior changes that help you reach your best health.
I help you dig down to the root of your health problems, show you gentle nutrition and movement practices, and celebrate your success!
