Amanda Mittman, MS, RDN, LDN
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, Amanda takes a collaborative approach in her work and finds that when it comes to setting nutrition goals the client knows best. Amanda practices from a non-diet, fat-positive, weight-inclusive/neutral approach focusing on improving health outcomes without an emphasis on weight loss. She has found great success in sharing Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size (HAES) paradigms with her clients and is dedicated to helping people ditch “diet culture” and find food freedom and body acceptance. Most recently, Amanda completed her Masters of Science in Functional Nutrition and uses this specialized approach when providing medical nutrition therapy. She loves playing with her two labradoodles Rosie and Daisy, listening to true crime podcasts, and eating chocolate daily.
