Registered Dietitians who care
Austin-based Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and Eating Disorder Specialists
Our Nutrition Counseling Approach
We take a non-diet approach to nutrition rooted in the principles of intuitive eating and Health at Every Size®.
There are 10 principles of intuitive eating, and the first and most important is to reject the diet mentality. When we are stuck in a dieting mindset, foods are labeled as good and bad and exercise is used as punishment for eating. Intuitive eating is all about listening to your body and responding to internal hunger/fullness cues, in addition to challenging negative food thoughts. When intuitive eating is embraced, food is food and is not inherently good or bad. Movement is a means of enjoyment, not earning our food.
Health at Every Size®
Weight does not equal health and weight is not a choice. Health enhancement and respectful care are two of the pillars of HAES. Health is promoted and all bodies are respected. In this framework, every body can be healthy, regardless of size or shape. This approach is not anti-weight loss, it's anti the pursuit of intentional weight loss. When overall health (and not a number on the scale) is the goal, weight may or may not change but health outcomes can improve.
This service is optional and for those who desire to integrate Christian faith into nutritional counseling. As a Christian, my faith is my most important value and I believe that the Gospel and the Word of God informs how we live our lives. The Bible talks about food and body. Jesus even uses a food metaphor to call Himself the bread of life in John 6:35. God cares about how we view food and how we treat our bodies.
