ABOUT KIRSTEN ACKERMAN, MS, RD
Food Freedom is possible
I spent years of my life preoccupied with food and my body. I never even considered that it may be problematic . I thought I was just "being healthy". But then, through my discovery of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size, I came to understand that I don't have to spend my life controlling my food intake and trying to change my body. And, in fact, this life has a lot more joyful experiences to offer.
I work with women who are determined to recover from diet culture and reclaim their life.
I'm a Non-Diet Registered Dietitian - This means I won't focus on weight or weight loss and I won't recommend any way of eating that relies on external food rules. These kinds of rules disconnect us from our bodies and contribute to guilt, shame, fear and, ultimately, erratic behavior around food. Through an Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size aligned approach, I will guide you to restoring trust in your body, attuning to your own internal cues, and explore practices of body image healing.
