 The need for nutrition counseling and nutrition education is an essential component of eating disorder recovery. The registered dietitian (RD)  specializes in teaching people to eat mindfully and focus on creating a healthy relationship with food. The RD can help you to develop an individualized eating plan that will help you reach your personal health goals, in a way that will support you both physically and emotionally. Beyond the Mirror staff may recommend that you seek support from a registered dietitian. At Beyond the Mirror, we believe in a weight-inclusive, Health at Every Size approach to nutrition care. We will make referrals to individuals and organizations that are in alignment with these values.
