Finding another dietitian in the PCOS space who fully supports Health at Every Size, intuitive eating, and takes a non-diet approach is rare and also very exciting. I loved chatting with Kirsten, a registered dietitian who specializes in PCOS as well as binge eating disorders. Kirsten uses her own experiences as an eating disorder survivor and PCOS warrior to help others build a positive relationship with food while balancing hormones.
Kirsten shares her PCOS journey and how she was able to reshape the way she wanted to manage her health and relationship with food while studying to become a dietitian, including intuitive eating and gentle nutrition. She then discusses how intuitive eating can be very successful for someone with a medical condition, and provides advice for people who are fearful they may feel out of control or not sure where to start.
It was such a pleasure to chat with Kirsten, and I know you will love her story, advice, and tips as well!
Tune in to hear:
- How intuitive eating puts you on the same team as your body, allowing you to work together
- Advice for people who struggle with disordered eating
- Nutrition advice that is misleading and problematic for someone with PCOS
- How to add in foods that are beneficial
