Our Nutritionists Help Clients Escape the Diet Cycle

If you are struggling to make healthy changes in your life that stick, you are not alone. You may feel discouraged that you haven’t been able to stick to a diet, but here’s the truth:

You haven’t failed your diet, your diet has failed you.

Most dieters end up gaining more weight than they lost and repeated attempts to diet can lead to binge eating, emotional eating, and powerful food cravings that are hard to control.

We can help you regain control of your relationship with food. Our nutritionists use a mindful eating, client-centered approach that has helped our clients reduce blood glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, depression, disordered eating behaviors, and food cravings.

Let’s talk about diets, with Choose Food founder Brittany Markides, MS, RDN, LD
