Food doesn’t have to be frustrating
Not Your Average Nutritionist
Welcome to a place free from judgment
where we know how hard it is to leave your comfort zone of “safe” foods.
WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
At Not Your Average Nutritionist, we are a team of Registered Dietitians who are ready to meet you where you are at to help your relationship with food, exercise, and body image. We practice from a “Health At Every Size” ® and all-foods-fit philosophy; believing that Intuitive Eating is the end-goal that we were all born knowing.
We’ve struggled with food and never want anyone else to live in the constant mind-battle of disordered eating!
It sucks to have thoughts about what you ate / are going to eat swirling in your mind all day. We know the mental-hell of it, personally. With years of helping people like yourself break out of these patterns, we are so glad you are here looking into the next step in finding peace with food. It is possible!
