Frequently asked questions

Are you a registered dietitian? What does that entail?

Yes I am! I obtained my credentials in 2019 and am currently licensed in the state of Massachusetts. In order to become a registered dietitian, you must: - Have a minimum of a bachelors degree in nutrition/dietetics. Entry level dietitians will be required to have a masters effective 2024. - Get matched into a supervised practice program and complete a minumum of 1200 hours in a variety of settings (including clinical nutrition) - Pass the national boards exam - Complete a certain number of continuing education units each year to maintain credentialed - Most states also require specific state licensure

Are you vegan or follow any special diets?

No, I am not. I personally do not believe in labeling ways of eating or cutting any food groups out of your diet. Nature has its way of providing for us what we need, both plants and animals. I do however appreciate a largely plant based diet. While I do eat meat and dairy on a regular day to day basis, I get a great deal of my calories from plant based sources. I am also a firm believer that all foods can fit a healthy diet. Moderation is key.

What is macro counting? Do you use it with clients?

Macro counting is exactly what it sounds like - counting your macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, and fat). Everyone has a specific macronutrient range they should be eating in a day. My approach with each client is different. Everyone has different goals and nutritional needs. Macro counting can be a great educational tool for people to visualize what they are eating in retrospect to their needs. However, it is not meant to be a long term solution (no one wants to "count" for the rest of their lives - it's unsustainable). Have a specific goal you're working towards? Send me a message and we can come up with a plan just for you!

Are you affiliated with any companies or promote products you don't support?

Any products/brands I support through the use of social media are products that I fully support and use. I do not get paid to advertise for any brands.
