See what people have to say about working with a dietitian
When I first met with a Nourish dietitian, I was expecting the same treatment as usual. Any specialist I had met told me to just not eat certain foods, have a structured meal plan, and my problems would go away. All the recommendations felt so generic, and I was incredibly tired of hearing that my only option was to eat only a few ‘clean’ foods for the rest of my life. Instead, my dietitian listened to my whole history and all the issues that I was experiencing, then worked together with me to develop our plan of attack. I was tired of having the same experience over and over again - I needed someone who would actually improve my life and found that here.
Since that first meeting, my dietitian has completely changed my view around food. I’ve been able to work with her to find out what food, patterns, and other factors influence my stomach pain.
Every dietitian I had used prior had just given me suggestions on what to change, with no real plan or guide for how to implement the changes. My Nourish dietitian is the first one who has actually helped guide me through a true lifestyle change, and has been supportive and by my side every step of the way. Now, I virtually never have stomach pain, and on top of that, I have a much healthier and well-rounded mindset towards food in general.
Before I started with Nourish, diabetes was seriously hurting my entire life. My A1C was much higher than I was hoping and it was creating stress and pain. I really did not feel like myself, so I was desperate to find a solution that worked for me. Luckily, I found Nourish online and was able to get the perfect dietitian that would work for my specific situation.
From day 1, Nourish helped turn my life around. Yes, my dietitian was incredibly knowledgable about type 2 diabetes, but more importantly, she also took a big interest in my whole life. She helped me better understand my own diagnosis and where that fit into my overall nutritional journey. We worked together to create a clear path forward that made sense for me. It was the first time in my life that I truly felt like I understood my diabetes, and it has had a lasting impact on my mental wellness.
I am so thankful that my dietitian was able to help me in such an impactful way. I’ve already seen my A1C drop 3 points, but perhaps most importantly, I am starting to finally like I am in control. Without Nourish, I know I’d still be feeling completely physically and emotionally drained. I have felt so much better mentally and physically since I started seeing a dietitian with Nourish.
The part of her care team that my daughter Becca always struggled with the most was her dietitian, because that was the one member who was forcing the most change. That’s why I was so thrilled when Becca actually came to me about a new RD that she had seen on instagram - I thought there may finally be an opportunity for Becca to connect with her dietitian.
Immediately, things were much easier at Nourish than our experiences elsewhere. Our dietitian was able to find a time that worked within Becca’s difficult schedule. With sports, school, friends, and all her other extracurriculars, it can often be hard to fit important appointments in, but with Nourish it was easy.
There was an immediate impact. She’s been feeling better, which I’ve had the opportunity to hear both from her and from her dietitian because Nourish involves the parents in their own sessions, too. Her improvement in health has led to her getting a lot of her confidence back, and I have finally been able to see her happy again. It feels like such a relief to watch my happy girl back with her friends.
My daughter Julia had been going to a psychiatrist to deal with her disordered eating, and the topic of getting a dietitian had come up. I was completely desperate to help her in any way I could, so I jumped at the opportunity and was connected with Nourish by her psychiatrist.
Immediately, the dietitian connected on a teenage-level with my daughter, which I think has been crucial for my daughter’s recovery. She was incredibly kind and really engaged with Julia, which I know can be difficult at times with teenagers. Our dietitian went above and beyond to 'meet Julia where she was at’ - going so far as to adjust appointment times to align with Julia's school schedule, and being flexible with any goals or strategies she set with Julia so that Julia could accomplish them while still getting to experience a ‘normal’ teenage life. I could finally start to see Julia turn a corner, and seeing the hope in her eyes finally return was incredible for me to watch.
I have appreciated how much I am kept in the loop by Julia's dietitian. We finally have someone helping both of us deal with the nutrition challenges that she is constantly facing. My daughter went from eating basically nothing to having 3 meals and 4 snacks a day consistently. So much of her pain is gone, and that is all thanks to our dietitian. I highly recommend anyone looking for a guiding and supportive figure in their child’s life get a Nourish dietitian.
My dietitian has been with me every step of the way the last year and a half as I have battled my eating disorder and countless other health issues that I have. Oftentimes, my doctor or other health care professionals will only focus on the problem that they are treating me for, but my dietitian has really considered everything about my health and life when determining the best path forward for my treatment.
Having an eating disorder can be really complicated, and sometimes other doctors do not understand exactly what I am going through. They’ll ask me questions or prescribe treatment plans that go completely against all the progress I’ve been able to make with my eating disorder. Every time I have had an issue, my dietitian has been there to speak with my doctors to ensure I am getting the best treatment across the board.
I finally feel like I have a champion who believes in me, and my dietitian believing in me has allowed me to believe in myself. The progress I’ve made in 18 months is more than I could have imagined, and I cannot wait to continue my journey with Nourish.
I have had a long battle with my eating disorder, with time spent with dietitians in both residential and outpatient care. I had felt like I was at a pretty good place in my recovery, but then during Covid everything took a turn for the worse. I was quickly slipping back into some of my bad habits. I was stuck in an overly structured recovery program and I needed to find a new approach that worked for me.
After reading up on Nourish, I realized that it was the perfect fit for me - it wasn’t just a one-size-fits-all approach. My dietitian was exactly what I needed to finally start to feel more confident in my ED recovery progress. She has been incredibly compassionate and supportive throughout our time together. She knows about my unique battle with ED, and takes into account my personal preferences in every meeting we have together. She also never judges me for anything I say or do and makes sure I view our sessions together as a safe and supportive space to open up.
I know not every day will be easy, but since starting with Nourish I’ve had more wins than I can ever remember having before. I feel confident that I’ve found the right match to always support me when I struggle, and ultimately help me overcome my battle with ED. I never imagined I would be in such a good place and am finally so excited to see where the future takes me!

What is Binge Eating Disorder?
Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is a type of eating disorder that is characterized by frequent episodes of eating large quantities of food over short periods of time - to the point of feeling ill. Binge Eating Disorder affects an estimated 1-5% of the population, making it three times as prevalent as anorexia and bulimia combined.
Binge Eating Disorder Signs and Symptoms
Binge eating disorder is often associated with symptoms of depression. There are several signs that someone might be battling with BED, including insisting on eating alone, overeating when not hungry, or eating until uncomfortably full.
Episodes of binge eating are usually followed by feelings of guilt or shame, and often lead to more serious health complications. Full list of symptoms:
- Consuming an unusually large amount of food in a relatively short time
- Feeling out of control with food
- Eating more quickly than usual
- Consuming large quantities of food while not feeling hungry
- Eating until feeling uncomfortable and overly full
- Having feelings of sadness, guilt, or disgust after eating
- Hiding or being secretive about eating behaviors
- Feeling embarrassed about the amount of food consumed
- Experiencing sadness with regard to body or weight
- Feeling depressed, ashamed, guilty or disgusted about your eating
Causes of Binge Eating Disorder
Binge eating disorder (BED) is caused by a complex combination of genetic, psychological and cultural factors. Family history, long term dieting, and a disrupted relationship with food may increase the risk of binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder sufferers often struggle with co-occurring mood and anxiety disorders, have experienced some kind of trauma, or struggle to navigate developmental milestones and life changes.
The larger cultural narrative around dieting, binge eating and obesity is a prominent factor influencing the development of binge eating disorder. This rhetoric fosters shame and embarrassment for individuals struggling with BED, many of whom are chronic dieters without weight loss success.
Binge Eating Disorder Health Risks
There are serious health risks associated with binge eating disorder (BED), including: Cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome as well as Sleep Disorders, GI Disorders, Pain Disorders, Menstrual Dysfunction and Pregnancy Complications. That’s why it’s important to recognize that BED is a mental health illness, not a matter of trying to exercise more self-control.
Binge Eating Disorder Treatment
The specialized binge eating disorder treatment team at Nourish will work with you to understand biological, psychological and social contributors to your illness.
First and foremost, intervention at a behavioral level is imperative to stop disordered eating. Secondly, your treatment team will seek to understand the psychological issues that contribute to your disordered eating behavior.
In addition to the psychological contributors to the illness, it is important to identify any co-occurring illnesses you may have, such as depression, anxiety, trauma or substance abuse. At Nourish, we believe in treating the illness, not just the resulting weight gain. By focusing first on remedying the disordered eating, we work with our patients to find solutions to the underlying issues first and the weight second.
