    131: Body Image Work Dietitians Should Do With Marci Evans MS CEDRD-S

    131: Body Image Work Dietitians Should Do With Marci Evans MS CEDRD-S

    Marci Evans, MS CEDRD-S LD, comes back to RD Real Talk to chat with us about body image. This conversation pairs with episode 130, featuring Bri Campos LPC, to continue our understanding of, and scope of practice (as dietitians) with, body image healing. Marci also shares some business and life updates, including how she prepared, and set boundaries for, her maternity leave last year. 
    Marci puts out a call to action for all practitioners: We must do our own work, first. She provides some foundation for how to do that, along with ample resources for professionals who want to learn more about this topic.

    Brenna O'Malley RD, aka @theWellful, joins us with some real talk about eating, and living, without a set of new diet rules.

She brings that compassion to this conversation with RD Real Talk listeners. For the RDs tuning in, this episode may help you navigate client sessions this month with All The Diet Talk.

    128: Easing Into Intuitive Eating

    128: Easing Into Intuitive Eating

    Lisa Valente, MS RD, the Digital Nutrition and News Editor at EatingWell, joins us again on the show. Our first episode together aired in early 2017. When Lisa listened to it recently, she was surprised by how much her nutrition philosophy, and openness to the concepts of Intuitive Eating, had changed in just over two years. We talk about that process, and her thoughts about it! If you're feeling resistant to IE, or totally new to the ideas, I'm sure you'll relate to Lisa's experiences.

    126: Setting Up A Weight-Inclusive Private Practice

    126: Setting Up A Weight-Inclusive Private Practice

    Amy Hanneke RD, aka @SatisfyNutrition IG, has experienced some major career moves since we last talked. On her first episode of RD Real Talk (67: IE Stories in Clinical Nutrition), she was working in clinical nutrition and living in rural southern Idaho. She went on to leave her clinical post, set up a booming private practice in Denver, CO, and eventually decided to close up shop and move, again.
    If you’re interested in setting up your own weight-inclusive, non-diet private practice, check out Pursuing Private Practice-Intuitive Eating, a robust course led by Jennifer McGurk. I (Heather) used it in setting up my own practice! This is an affiliate link.
    We don’t hear much about the whole private practice, especially the nitty gritty of getting things set up, but more so the tough decision to leave the business world, and become an employee again. All of these choices are deeply personal, and Amy gets real about why this was right choice for her. She also takes us into the world of Satisfy Nutrition, sharing some behind-the-scenes info about her social media world.
    Another essential resource to both mine and Amy’s private practice: SimplePractice.
    SimplePractice is an Electronic Health Record for dietitians that provides flexible formatting for show notes, practice documents (templates for Release of Information, Policies, and billing), scheduling, and secure video conferencing!
    This affiliate link for SimplePractice provides WIND RDs with a special deal: three months for the price of one!
