INDIVIDUAL SERVICES

Nutrition Counseling

Ditch the weird food rules, the “I can’t have that,” and the self criticism. In other words–ditch the diets and learn to nourish yourself with real food and real confidence.

What’s it like working with a dietitian?

Hi, I’m Lindsey McCoy, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, the food- and fun-loving dietitian you see here. And despite widespread beliefs I’m NOT the food police. I help adults build sustainable habits in nutrition, fitness, and happiness to lower chronic disease. We work together to increase your energy levels, reduce medication dependence and maintain a high quality of life for years to come.

FAQ

Approach

No. Weight status is a reflection of your health history, genetics, eating pattern, exercise pattern, stress management, sleep hygiene, the community you live in, and more.

Instead of focusing just on scale weight as a measure of health, we look at both quantitative measures of health (like your blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, A1c, etc.) and qualitative measures (like recreational fitness capabilities, quality of sleep, and body confidence).

We spend our time and energy on building habits that make you feel strong and capable for a lifetime of wellbeing.

Nope, sorry (but also, not sorry). We may know a lot about nutrition, but YOU are the expert in YOU. We don’t do cookie cutter meal plans or complicated lists of food rules, and we don’t blame and shame you into giving up your favorite foods.   

We provide education on the basics of human physiology and nutrient needs. And we provide counseling to help you interpret and apply that information to you.

Our goal is that you’re confident and empowered to make food decisions that are right for you—when you feel good, when you feel bad, when you’re working late, when you’re on vacation, when you’re at a restaurant or a backyard BBQ. No meal plan on earth can account for every day of YOUR life. But investing yourself into the process will help YOU navigate all of these scenarios.
