Our Approach to Weight Loss & Weight Management

Weight & Body Image: Health, not Weight!

"Healthy" is to find balance between true physical hunger, satiety, joyful movement, understanding our SET POINT/genetics and the weight our body functions best at. Personalized nutrition supports behavioral and lifestyle changes, so weight is found naturally, not forcefully. At Nutritious Thoughts, we work closely with each individual to discover what combinations and amounts of food are appropriate for feeling content and healthy, while learning intuitive/mindful eating techniques. During this time of discovery, we may do some exploration to see what best supports you physically and emotionally.


Our cultural pressure to be “thin” seem to override the overall goal of health. We are taught magical thinking from an early age that if you want to feel better about who you are, change the way you look. What's life in our culture without “dieting”? Some of us will never know, but some of us will take a less traveled path that will shed new light on our lives by shifting how we view ourselves, in turn shifting how we nourish ourselves.

If we look at science alone, we have learned over the years of creating and pushing diets that...DIETS DON'T WORK.

I’m sure if you’ve been to a dietitian before or another medical provider living in a larger body you have felt the pressures to do “whatever it takes” to lose weight, to meet BMI (body mass index) requirements or to simply “be healthier”. Unfortunately, this method can be more harmful than helpful. Not only does research show “dieting” to be physically harmful to the body, it also creates yo-yo dieting/chronic dieting behaviors that can last for years. These behaviors are not only physically exhausting they are also extremely detrimental to our emotional health.  The good news is there are other ways to find true health without the shame and guilt involved in “dieting”. Learn how to foster a healthy relationship with food and your body.  It's about living life to the fullest, enjoying a variety of foods, and being comfortable in your own skin. In the end, we want our clients to come to a place where they feel empowered to maintain a healthy and safe weight on their own.

You are not alone!
