Hi. I’m Kris Pina. I created Eatuitive and this blog to share what I’ve learned about dieting, weight loss, body image, eating disorders and non-diet approaches to weight management and health. I am a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, an EDIT™ Certified Eating Disorder Recovery Therpist, a Body Type Practical Nutritionist, and a Precision Nutrition Certified Nutrition Coach. Additionally, I am a member of the Central Texas Eating Disorders Specialists (CTEDS), the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP) and a supporter of the Health at Every Size (HAES) movement.
But please, if you are going to trust me, don’t do it just because of my credentials. Trust me because I spent over 30 years dieting and struggling with disordered eating before learning that the way to get to and stay at a healthy weight (and live a life free of body obsession, restriction, and unhealthy weight fluctuations) is by not cutting calories, carbs or fats or even by cutting out sugar, grains or gluten. Believe it or not, managing your weight is not about you trying to control or cut out anything! In fact, it’s mostly about letting go of control and letting your body do what it’s beautifully designed to do if left to its own devices (which is to keep you at a perfectly healthy weight!)
So, are you ready to give a non-diet lifestyle a try? I hope so because I am truly excited to welcome you, and I look forward to helping you find freedom from dieting, disordered eating, food-related health issues, weight obsession, and body shame.
