Hi there ABBOG readers. I am Elizabeth Anderson, one of the registered dietitians at NuVal. Now I know, RDs can have a reputation as The Food Police, but ask anyone here in the office, and they’ll tell you, that’s not me!
I am no stranger to highly processed food. It has to be my parents fault, right? I kid; I take responsibility for my love of pink frosting. Still, growing up on Count Chocula and Little Debbie snacks means it’s almost in my DNA to resist higher scoring foods. I mean, is it wrong to deeply appreciate the sweet nectar of a frosty diet soda first thing in the morning?
But does that mean I’m a bad dietitian? I hope not. I like to look at my diet shortfalls as a sign that I am a ‘healthy-eating work in progress.’ In the 8 years I have worked in weight management, I can tell you, humility and self-compassion are two of the most essential tools for improving your eating. My motto is, when we feel better, we do better.
Can you relate? If so, I look forward to learning more about your struggles to improve your eating while I share my nutrition knowledge, throw in some healthy eating strategies and highlight ways we can improve the quality of our lives by implementing NuVal.
