Rebecca Thomas Nutrition LLC
Nutritional therapy for adults and children struggling in their relationships with food and eating.
My passion is helping clients create balance and peace while achieving their optimal nutritional health.
recovery from chronic dieting is possible.
You can have balanceD nutrition without restriction or deprivation".
I am a non-diet dietitian.
I have been helping teens and adults recover from chronic yo-yo dieting, build new, fulfilling relationships with food and their bodies while teaching mindful eating for over 10 years.
I specialize in ARFID ( Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder), HAES, Intuitive Eating, building the mind -body connection and debunking diet myths.
When I was a young dietitian and just starting out in seeing kiddos in the community, I began to notice that most of the referrals I was getting from pediatricians were for young girls struggling with negative body image, restrictive eating patterns and a false idea of what their nutritional needs were. I felt that something was very wrong with the messages we are sending our girls. I left my job in long term care and set out to work full time helping adults and children in their recovery from eating disorders.
I am passionate about helping adults, teens and kids develop and foster healthy relationship with food. I love seeing people gain freedom from destructive dieting and learn to feel confident in their food choices.

My Nutritional Philosophy:
There are no bad foods! Only bad relationships with food! All food has a place in a healthy diet. I reject food bullying and restrictive diets. I believe there is no success in deprivation! From cupcakes to Kale it all fits!
My practice has 4 core values:
To Enrich your life with positive food experiences.
Heal from disordered eating and negative body image.
Grow your knowledge of nutrition, self-awareness and the mind-body connection.
Balance eating for health with eating for pleasure.
My Nutritional Approach:
I use science based information to educate my clients, tried and true, no nonsense! I don’t use food trends or fad diets in my practice. I infuse my practice with the principles of Intuitive eating, mindful eating, HAES (health at every size) and body kindness. Mindful movement, yoga, creative cooking and food exploration are some of the treatment modalities I use. My goal is to help clients navigate the "whole health" aspect of nutrition, realign eating for health and pleasure and tune into their own internal hunger & fullness cues.
