Radical Nutrition

Might you or someone you know be struggling with food & body image issues?  Or perhaps really confused by the many voices and mixed messages you’re hearing about “health” & nutrition?  Frustrated by efforts you’ve made to improve your health & well-being through nutrition & body manipulation and feeling discouraged, defeated, or stuck?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE in these struggles, and any suffering you’re experiencing IS NOT YOUR FAULT.  “Weight bias, oppression, body oppression, and health disparities make caring for your body difficult” (https://benourished.org/our-manifesto/).  

THERE IS ANOTHER WAY to approach making healthy lifestyle changes…that doesn’t involve focusing on the scale, calorie counting, tracking macros or steps.  Hyper-focusing on food is actually counterproductive and can be detrimental to your health!  

This radical approach to nutrition is weight-inclusive, and involves focusing on health behaviors, not numbers.  Rather, it celebrates size diversity, and challenges the mainstream, traditional weight science that’s likely shaped your perception about “healthy living.” And please be encouraged to know that this radical, nuanced, truly holistic approach to health is actually evidence-based! 

The Radical Well-Being Center is here to support you in healing your relationship with food and your body.  Our therapists and registered dietitian are Health At Every Size® informed, and offer counseling services for disordered eating, weight/body image concerns, and positive well-being coaching.

Intuitive Eating is a process of unlearning and reconnecting.  RadWell’s team dietitian & certified intuitive eating counselor, Amanda Villescas, would love to help you untangle and dismantle toxic diet culture thoughts, perceptions, and beliefs.  She hopes to help you reconnect with your innate wisdom to nourish, and feel more at home in your body.
