Hi there! I am Casey and I have been a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) for more than 12 years. I have experience helping individuals improve/prevent a wide variety of conditions, both chronic and acute. I have a holistic and realistic approach to nutrition advice that I hope you find refreshingly helpful.
Some of what I post might sound a bit harsh or insensitive. I will admit to you that I was once pretty chunky and had a terrible lifestyle. I had a few people in my life that loved me enough to give me tough love, and who helped me face the reality once in a while. That [harsh] approach helped me. My tact may not be suitable for everyone, and I am oddly ok with that as long as it helps someone. If you don’t like what you read, please be kind enough to simply move on. If you do like what you read, feel free to share!
On another note, despite the vast number of people who claim to be a “nutritionist,” few actually qualify as a true, evidence-based, credentialed nutrition professional. I completed a supervised 9-month dietetic internship, and I passed the RDN board certification test in order to become a legit nutrition expert. I complete bountiful hours of continuing education annually, and I also have achieved board certification as a Certified Nutrition Support Clinician (CNSC) and as an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer (ACSM-CPT). Last, but not least, I have achieved a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition degree, and status as a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
The bottom line is that, unlike many of “those people” out there, I have real-life, accredited education to support the advice that I give (not a 2-week online certification, for example!). My job is to help you safely navigate the world of nutrition and to help you practically apply evidenced-based nutrition principles to your daily lifestyle.
PLEASE be selective about the advice you take, especially about medical information, and specifically regarding what you should be eating. Please!
Cheers to your health.
