RD Nutrition (Registered Dietitian Nutrition) = a qualified, evidence-based source for nutrition information and guidance.
Melanie (Mel) is a University of British Columbia graduate, earning a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health, majoring in Dietetics. She is a member in good standing with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia. Mel works as both a private practice dietitian and a clinical dietitian in the Greater Vancouver area. As such, she is well versed in both preventative nutrition health care and chronic disease management.
Regardless of where she provides care, Mel approaches nutrition counseling with a holistic mindset; keeping in mind that food is much more than just fuel. She realizes that food is culture, it is creation, it is social and sometimes it is comfort.
Mel translates evidence-based nutrition recommendations into practical eating strategies to help people turn their nutrition goals into sustainable changes. She is an ‘anti-diet’ Dietitian, meaning she will not prescribe a rigid eating plan that has strict rules around food. She promotes mindful and intuitive eating that focuses on a person’s health, not their body weight or size. Her integrative approach supports clients to achieve sustained improvements in not only their nutritional health, but their activity level, sleep quality and stress management.
