    The Mindful Dietitian with Jenna Hollenstein

    Jenna Hollenstein on compassion and witnessing the evolution of Dietetic practice, asking "is this a tipping point?"
    Jenna shares witnessing a new mood, observations of the current tipping point, the importance of compassion as we evolve as clinicians and as we witness the evolution of others, what compassion is and isn’t and how we embrace it, mindfulness and meditation; the notion of acceptance, making connections and a new training opportunity available for dietitians.

    Living in NYC; its overstimulating nature and rich diversity with many opportunities for observation.
    Attending the 2019 FNCE; ‘The Superbowl for American Dietitians’ and its significantly different presence.
    The current tipping point within the dietetic community and profession - the hunger for IE and HAES exposure from students and dietitians early on in their careers.
    Why its important to enact self-compassion and not turn to self-aggression as we evolve and change.
    The misconceptions of self-compassion; 
    What it really is and what it isn’t.
    The need to balance feminine and masculine qualities.
    How we can embrace self-compassion through this environmental shift by being conscious and aware of our evolution and the evolution of others. 
    Compassion VS Idiot Compassion; understanding the complexities of the human experience and the need to call out / call in – and knowing it’s not easy!

    The Mindful Dietitian with Julie Duffy Dillon

    The Mindful Dietitian with Julie Duffy Dillon

    Julie Duffy Dillon on the power of language, holding space & inclusive care.
    Julie Duffy Dillon shares her journey to creating the ‘Love Food’ podcast and more about its unique format, her experience with supervision and its vital place in working and being with clients, transitioning from a weight centric to weight inclusive practice, supporting clients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and the importance of language and gender inclusive care in this paradigm.

    Here, Julie & Fi discuss:

    Julie’s guest appearances on several podcasts discussing polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and how her own podcast ‘Love, Food’ came about.

    The unique format of Julie’s ‘Love,Food’ podcast and how it honours lived experiences; helping clients not to feel alone, whilst providing insight to dietitians. 

    The importance of holding space for clients; “the capacity to do so is not something most dietitians are prepared for on graduating, though its fundamental to healing”. 

    Supervision; how it can act as a catalyst towards growth and development and identifying burn out.

    Supervision’s ability to provide space back to the practitioner; “holding space for others, means we need space too, with someone who gets it!”.

    Transitioning from a weight centric practice to weight neutral; fence sitting and navigating an environment which favours burn out.


    The harm of weight centric care and its impact access to fertility treatment.

    Why client centred care is crucial in PCOS to reduce harm.

    A research and care model rooted in fat phobia and weight stigma.

    Why language matters; the importance of providing gender inclusive care as a HAES practitioner.

    The need for ongoing learning and supervision in gendered language / care and the important work of Vaughn Darst.

    More about Meghan:
    Meghan (she/her) is passionate about working with her clients from a weight neutral, Health at Every Size ® perspective and believes in self-compassion as a foundation for re-building trust, connection, and confidence with ones own body. Meghan is a traditionally trained dietitian, however, her philosophical approach to nutrition counseling is anything but. She focuses on centering her clients as an expert in their own explorations and healing process, and supports her clients in building connection and confidence in their own innate intuition. Meghan believes that all bodies, regardless of size, shape, color, ability, age, or gender identity deserve access to respectful and high quality care. Her work with clients incorporates weight neutral approaches to self care utilizing a Health at Every Size approach. She works with her clients to support them in defining health for themselves and dismantling the idea that health is a moral obligation. Meghan also recognizes that her clients needs are vast and diverse. She takes the time to consider the big picture of her clients’ lives and lived experience in order to best support her clients in their food and body healing work. She utilizes a flexible approach to food and eating grounded in reconnecting to hunger, fullness, appetite, satiety, and pleasure. Meghan is a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) and is currently working towards her Body Trust certification. She enjoys working with clients who are interested in healing and strengthening their relationship with food and their body. Because Meghan recognizes that everyone comes to this work at a different point on the body liberation continuum she is eager to meet her clients where they are and enjoys walking the path along side them. Meghan’s personal life aligns with her professional life as she finds great joy in supporting her preschooler and infant in discovering the wonder of their body and pleasure in their eating. Her recreational reading leads her to deeper dives into social justice and anti-oppression work, and she finds joy in spending time in the outdoors and engaging in group movement like hiking and soccer.
