Our first guest on “You Can Eat With Us” is Rachael Hartley, RD, LD, CDE, CLT. She is a Columbia, SC-based nutrition therapist and nationally-recognized food and nutrition expert. Rachael began her career as a clinical dietitian and, later, as the outpatient dietitian for a large medical center before opening her private practice in 2014. She now specializes in intuitive eating, disordered eating, and digestive disorders.
She joins us to share an overview of intuitive eating and what it means to start rejecting the rules of dieting. She also shares her love for one of her favorite foods (and we totally get the excitement!) and some of the tools she uses to support people through some of the challenges of intuitive eating.
Stay tuned after the episode for our Listener Question about the principle of Intuitive Eating and why it’s so crucial to reject the diet mentality first.
