Free yourself from chronic dieting forever.

 

 

Rediscover the pleasures of eating.

 

I’m Karen Louise, your anti-diet dietitian since 2005. I offer nutrition coaching for chronic dieting, eating disorder recovery and fertility support.

Chronic Dieting

EATING DISORDER RECOVERY

FERTILITY SUPPORT

Imagine a life where you wake up and don’t obsess about food.

Imagine a life where you feel freedom with food and without guilt or worry.

Imagine a life of feeling at home and at peace in your body.

Imagine trusting your body and never dieting again.

Imagine living a life deeply rooted in your truth, your power.

Are you done with yo-yo dieting and feeling like a failure?

You’ve tried every diet under the sun and yet still can’t seem to figure it out!

Do you identify with “emotional eating” stress eating” and “binge eating?”

Do you feel ashamed that you can’t seem to control your eating?

Do you feel obsessed around food?

Can’t stop thinking about what you “should” or “shouldn’t eat?”

Do you agonize over your weight or size of your body?

You get caught in the shame spiral and can’t stop self-judgments and criticism.
You really want to “listen” and “trust” your body with food, but don’t know how.
Perhaps you feel like your food and body struggles are holding you back from living your best life.
Maybe you’ve heard of IE but aren’t sure if you’re doing it right.

Karen is truly a gem and always my go to nutritionist and anti-diet dietician who I call upon to support and inspire my clients looking to heal disordered eating patterns and negative body image. She has an amazing ability to bring warmth and compassion, a great wealth of knowledge and practical tools to rewire the diet culture mentality and bring joy, freedom, trust and peace in relationship to one’s body and food.

Take this leap for yourself! Pretty Please! <3 My time working with Karen Louise has been absolutely life altering in ways that I couldn't imagine before our first meeting. There are many things that I am grateful to her for and countless gems of wisdom that I have gleaned from our 1:1 meetings. I went into this with what I thought was an open mind, but I realize now that I actually went into it desperately expecting to be told what to do to make myself smaller, from yet another "expert" who knew more about my fat body than I knew about myself. I expected to be schooled, disciplined, and turned around. What I found in Karen Louise was unparalleled kindness, compassion, and understanding coupled with extensive academic and practical knowledge about bodies, diet culture, and intersections of the systems that have gotten so many of us where we are today ~ knee deep in an 80 billion dollar a year diet culture industry that profits from us feeling like our spirits and bodies are broken, and that if we can only work harder, try more, and shrink better, we can finally, at long last, be "whole". Karen Louise taught me that I deserve to be alive, that I am worthy of being fed, and that with time and care ~ I can heal my relationship with my body. She taught me to be curious about my feelings, to listen to the way that I talk to myself, and to notice when I am hungry and full. She taught me to be gentle with myself, and provided me with practical skills to achieve this new and peaceful way of being. Karen Louise gave me back my life with unwavering certainty. This woman is a true ally of all human beings and believes that all bodies are not only naturally occurring, but also that they are worthy of love (from self and others). I cannot speak highly enough of Karen Louise and I hope that you give yourself the gift of working with her in any way that feels right to you.

She was so instrumental in my switch over to intuitive eating. She really showed me the truth of diet culture and helped me to create a new and healthier relationship with eating habits and food. She showed my lots of care and support throughout the process. It does take a lot of mindfulness and awareness, but meeting with her helps to realign my mind when i get confused. In addition, she was always able to respond to little text message questions I would have here and there in my daily life. If you want to change your relationship with food, then she is an amazing guide to have during this journey.

Karen asks really good questions and ferrets out the roots of diet culture that get embedded in each of us. Her approach is gentle, direct and very effective.

Karen has been working closely with me for a long time and she is truly amazing. She is thoughtful and caring while honoring autonomy and holding space for the intersectional identities of her patients. I would recommend her to everyone I know if I could 💕

Karen has an uncanny ability to lead her clients like me to uncover deep truths. She is extremely kind and empathetic, I immediately felt at ease and comfortable with Karen. I loved her approach, which was centered around intuitive eating. I often think about how grateful I am to have found Karen and had this experience. I could not recommend her more.

I have been fortunate to be a client with Karen’s practice over the past few years. Karen has been a thoughtful, kind and supportive ally through my intuitive eating journey. This work, to reframe my thoughts out of diet culture and into body trust, is arduous. Karen’s counsel, whether it be in a one on one session or group work, is unfaltering in its compassion. I would choose Karen again and again, many times over. Highly recommend.

I trust Karen completely as a non-diet dietitian! I have worked with clients who previously worked with Karen (we have different specialties) and they have come so far in their healing with her that it makes my work with them so much easier and effective. Karen is a lovely, compassionate person and you will not regret working with her!

"I am so thankful...

When I first started seeing Karen I felt hopeless, stuck in a dieting and overeating cycle that had my weight fluctuating all over the place. I now feel comfortable in my eating habits, and feel healthy and lighter without dieting. I am so thankful for Karen’s insights and guidance throughout this process!”
