Hi! I’m Rebecca, a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist based and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor in New York City. I’m extremely passionate about all aspects of health, wellness and nutrition and as corny as it sounds, believe I was destined to become a Registered Dietitian (RD) due to my matching initials and credentials (hence…Nutrition by RD!).
My nutrition philosophy is based on a mind-body approach and is rooted in self-care, curiosity and behavior change. I am a proud anti-diet dietitian and utilize a Health At Every Size® and Intuitive Eating framework. I work collaboratively with each of my clients to help them listen, learn and trust their body’s internal cues and become the expert of their own body, rather than rely on external diet rules. I believe everyone has a right to body respect and autonomy. I also believe that food should be enjoyable and love sharing exciting and easy meal ideas to help my clients secure their own tools to fuel and satisfy their taste buds, body and mind. Additionally, my emphasis on the principles of Intuitive Eating helps my clients not only improve their relationships with food, but with themselves as well.
As an RD I’ve met the strict educational and clinical standards set forth by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) to qualify as a nutrition expert and also completed my Masters of Public Health (MPH) in Nutrition from the CUNY School of Public Health. I am also certified as an Intuitive Eating Counselor. I’m currently an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Greater New York Dietetic Association.
In addition to utilizing my nutrition expertise to help not only
I’m a native New Yorker and currently live in the heart of NYC in midtown Manhattan with my husband, Alex and our pup, Winnie. I enjoy experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, trying new workout classes, exploring our city (and others!) and checking out new restaurants or cafes.
