Nutrition Services Factsheet
Eating Disorder Referral/ Resource Guide

Nutrition Services believes in body liberation, weight neutrality and that all bodies, shapes, and sizes should be celebrated and valued. Our dietitians center a client’s lived experiences by providing safe, respectful, and individualized care. Using a non-diet approach encourages clients to look beyond physical characteristics to determine overall health. Students will learn body attunement and unlearn harmful diet culture beliefs and messages to have a more peaceful relationship with food, their body, and movement.

Non-Diet Dietitian Approach
A Non-Diet Dietitian approach focuses on behavior changes regardless of weight status. Weight neutrality means you are more than your body, more than a number. It is the belief that a person’s health status, risk level, or quality of life cannot be assumed based solely on a number on a scale. Evidence has shown that this approach effectively promotes lasting behavior change while minimizing weight stigma.

What to Expect

An assessment takes approximately 50-60 minutes and will likely continue over a few sessions. The assigned Dietitian will compassionately ask questions about one’s history and current relationship with food, body, and movement and learn your needs. Assessments take place in the warm and inviting Nutrition Services office. Snacks are encouraged and welcomed during sessions.

Follow-up sessions will look different for everyone but will continue the work discussed during the original assessment. Sessions will typically take 30-45 minutes and occur as needed and available.

  • Regularity, adequacy, variety, eating socially, spontaneity
  • Learning how to fine-tune hunger & fullness awareness.
  • Exploring the different types of hunger
  • Letting go of rigid food rules & reject diet mentality.
  • Finding satisfaction, joy, and pleasure through eating

This varies per person and individual needs. Some students may be scheduled weekly, and others may get their needs met in 1-2 sessions.
