Discover Don't Diet
Don’t Diet Dietitian program is unique, and I am not your average dietitian as I focus in on the emotional and mental component missing from many other programs you may have done in your past. I am compassionate to your needs and non-judgmental. You will learn how to become more self-aware with your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I help guide and support you towards a better relationship with food, body, and self. You will learn sustainable and realistic behaviors unlike any fad or short-term diet. My goal with each client is to make them feel their best without restricting food categories. I work on the whole person physical, emotional, and mental.
My focus is shifting from a diet restriction mindset that society teaches, I must debunk a lot of the myths about nutrition, weight, and health. A journey where you never fail but instead learn a self-care approach. There is progress, never perfection, as you begin to realize the “why” behind your food decisions. My client outcomes are wonderful as you truly feel empowered from within to set the intentions needed to improve your health!

1 / Statistically, the most predictable long-term outcome of dieting is weight gain.
2 / Diets were designed to fail you—you never failed any of them; the industry now has repeat customers!
3 / Diets decrease metabolism and increase fat storage.
4 /They increase food cravings and food obsession, often leading to binges.
5 / Dieting can cause irritability, anxiety, and depression, which all affect your mental health.
6 / Diets increase stress response in your body.
7 / The body’s physiology is such that it wants to be fed consistently with enough energy throughout the day.
8 /Dieting can result in feelings that promote a sense of failure or lack of willpower, causing body distrust.
9 / Diets are not built from a goal of empowerment and improved health; in fact, yo-yo dieting increases the risk of heart disease and premature death.
10 / Genes are largely responsible—about 70% for each individual’s set weight point range.

Here's what they have to say:
“Thank you so much, Lauren, for guiding me to a new mindset with my food choices! Though we only worked together for a short time, you really helped me realize that the way I had been eating had been more about what I was “supposed” to eat, rather than choosing foods that I “wanted” to eat. You also taught me how to build my meals to have a balance of healthy foods, while at the same time including foods that I enjoy! I now understand the importance of listening to my body with respect to my eating habits. As a person who has dieted for many years, I feel that I have a new relationship with food. Thank you for all of your amazing support!!”
