Rachel Good Nutrition- Where Healthy Meets Happy -
Hey, there! Thanks for being here! I’m excxited to share with you a little bit about my personal journey to health.
Throughout my teenage years I was a chronic dieter, desperately trying to lose weight. I tried cutting out carbs, cutting out fat, counting calories, not eating past 6pm, and even drinking juice (and juice only) for FIVE days! I can’t say I did it all but I’ve tried quite a lot of crazy things. It was effective at creating frustration, confusion, resentment, and unhappiness. And along the way I lost my innate ability to follow hunger and satiety cues and the enjoyment of food. It was all about sticking to the “plan”. Even if the plan meant including foods I wasn’t a fan of or banning my favorites. But the worst part? It. Did. Not. Work! I ended up binging at the end of every attempt (which may have lasted 2 months, 2 weeks, or 2 days) and putting back any wieght I had lost… and then some! All I felt was guilt and shame. It was relentless. It was my fault I didn’t succeed is what I told myself. If I only had more self discipline, more willpower…. that couldn’t be more wrong…
It was through my journey of becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist that I finally learned what true health is and was able to find peace with food and the scale. My personal experience, together with an education in nutrition sciences and clinical experience, keeps me passionate to teach others how to truly achieve health. Spoiler alert: it’s not a diet! I teach people how to start enjoying food again, get in tune with their bodies, shed the pounds for good, manage chronic disease, and be happy… without dieting. I want you to be able to leave dieting behind once and for all and create a lifestyle that focuses on what you CAN eat and what you CAN do to live healthy! No more restriction, no more guilt.
As a nutrition expert, with hospital, long-term care, and one-on-one counseling experience, I help my clients create sustainable health habits and reach their health goals. I won’t throw a strict menu at you or tell you that you can never have flour, chocolate, cheesecake, or any other food you love, ever again. I mean, no cheesecake ever? That’s just a miserable existence. Each person is an individual who leads a life with many moving parts beyond meal time, all factors that are important to take into consideration when creating a healthy lifestyle. A lifestyle that is catered to your life and your needs.
Whether you are looking to lose weight, manage your diabetes, or lower your blood pressure – my approach is tailored to YOU and provides you with evidence-based nutrition advice, tools, support, motivation, and guidance to help you reach your health goals. For good!
It’s time for healthy living to be simple and to make you happy!
Diet not included.
Yours in health and happiness,
