Hi! I'm Erica and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. I love food and always have--and I want you to love it too! I graduated from Utah State University in 2006 which included a study of the Meditteranean Diet abroad in Italy and shortly after completed my dietetic internship in 2007 in the Boston area. I have been practicing as a dietitian with experience in eating disorders and helping people heal their relationship with food for over 11 years. I spent my first years trying to "help" people lose weight to be healthy. Unfortunately, I learned through experience and research that prescribing weight loss wasn't "helping" anybody, but was in fact doing MORE damage. In short, you CANNOT determine how healthy OR unhealthy somebody is simply by looking at the size of their body or seeing a number on the scale. I now practice an intuitive eating approach to heal people's relationship with food and their body. I am a non-diet dietitian and have found that the more intuitive we are, the better we take care of ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually.
