What is Nutrition Elevated?
Hello! I’m Lauren Rice, MPH, RDN, CD: body positive registered dietitian nutritionist specializing in disordered eating, eating disorders, and chronic dieting. You can learn more about me here and and my credentials here.
Eating behaviors are multifaceted, and providing dietary recommendations is only a small facet of nutrition education. My goal is to help you explore your relationship with food and your body.
Dieting is understandably tempting because it falsely promises desirable outcomes. Often, attempts at dieting have counter-effects on our mental, physical, and emotional health.
Because dieting does not serve you longterm .
You didn’t “fail” at your last attempt – your diet failed YOU.
I hope to introduce my readers to a new way of approaching their relationship with food through intuitive eating and Health at Every Size, in which we celebrate body diversity, honor internal hunger cues, and forgive ourselves when our eating behaviors don’t match our expectations.
Here at Nutrition Elevated, you will be part of a community that welcomes ALL people, shapes, and sizes.
01. life elevated
Becoming your happiest, healthiest self.
Nutrition is not simply what, how much, or how often you eat.
It’s not following the latest fad diet, restricting, or counting every calorie.
Nutrition elevated is learning to trust your body listen and feel your internal cues.
It’s finding joy in eating, and
nourishing your body with a variety of all foods.
It’s learning to take care of your only body and celebrating what it can help you to achieve.
It’s honoring yourself for exactly who, and as, you are.
It’s making progress towards your goals, with recommendations that fit your lifestyle.
That’s a life, elevated.

what is evidence-based nutrition?
It’s forming nutrition recommendations based on peer-reviewed published, reputable scientific research.
It’s turning clinical nutrition practices into simple, every day actions.
As much as the media says otherwise:
There is no reputable and published evidence that diets or juice cleanses are effective in the long-run.
But there IS published evidence to show that
intuitive eating, self compassion, and self care
help to build self-efficacy,
and empower people to make heathy, sustainable lifestyle changes.
That’s nutrition elevated.
