Paige Reddan MS RD LN CEDRD-S
I decided to become a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist wanting to help people come to terms with their relationship with food. As is often the case, we are drawn to the very thing we need help with the most. I discovered MY relationship with food needed work before I could help anyone else.
I grew up in and through the eyes of the diet culture. I developed an eating disorder at a time when no one talked about it. I discovered that the relationship I had with food was directly related to my relationship with my body and both relationships needed a lot of repair.
I studied the human body, its needs based in science and compared that to the voice of the diet industry. No wonder I was confused.
Food had become anything but a basic human need for me. It was comfort, control, pacifier, antagonizer, best friend, worst enemy, reward and punishment. A very complex relationship indeed. And I happen to have Type 1 diabetes living happily on insulin pump CGM therapy.
Today, many years later, I have found peace with food. I take care of my body and I appreciate the work it does to keep me healthy, alert, and strong.
It would be my pleasure to meet you, share my learnings and develop a plan with you to set you on your way to food and body freedom.
