Hey, I’m Claire
I’m a registered dietitian who’s all about balancing my real food, veggie-heavy approach to nutrition with my love of burgers, dark chocolate, and red wine. But I wasn’t always this way…
I spent the decade between ages 13 and 23 on a diet. I counted calories, tracked macros, logged Points, punished myself through exercise, the works. I’d try just about anything if I thought it would help me lose weight.
On what would turn out to be my last diet, I reached my goal weight and guess what? I still wasn’t happy. So I began to look inward to achieve the confidence I was after. I started to prioritize my mental health as much as my physical well being.
Through this shift, I learned that health fueled by self-care felt so much better than forcing myself to diet and exercise from a place of self-loathing. I learned that self-respect is at the root of self-confidence. And I saw how healing my relationship to food and my body had a positive ripple effect throughout the rest of my life– my career, my social life, and my romantic relationships.
I founded Nutritional Freedom to help other women experience this same evolution in how they view not only their health, but also themselves.
