Nutrition can be a very confusing topic since everything we hear is conflicting! Luckily LCP Health has a Registered Dietitian who can help you improve your eating and nutrition to move towards your goals! Kathleen Hernder RD, CDE is an anti-diet dietitian who helps clients improve their relationship with food and their bodies and change their health behaviours using a weight-inclusive, Health at Every Size framework.
Here is what Kathleen has to say about her approach: "The evidence tells us that dieting doesn't work. If you went to your doctor for treatment for a condition and they told you the treatment had a 95% chance of failing, would likely make it worse, and would decrease your quality of life would you do it? I'm going to guess not. If you did, you certainly wouldn't beat yourself up if the treatment didn't work, you would blame the treatment! So why do we do this to ourselves with dieting?"
This doesn't mean Kathleen won't help you to make healthier choices, it means she does it without focusing on the number on the scale. Kathleen works with clients in a variety of areas including:
- Improving relationship with food and stopping the restricting, overeating cycle
- Sport nutrition
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) management
- General healthy eating and meal planning
- Vegetarian and vegan diets
- Diabetes management
Registered Dietitians are regulated health professionals whose services are covered by many extended health benefit programs. So why not get personalized advice and support for improving your eating and your health?
