Can you recommend a registered dietician in NYC (or who does Skype appointments) who focuses on health at every size instead of weight-loss and fat shaming?
My cholesterol and A1c just jumped through the roof this summer, even though my eating habits seemed fine and haven't changed, and I want to speak with a dietician who can help me figure out why that happened and how to adjust my eating choices to improve my health going forward.
The trick is that I'm fat and have been all my life, and I'm scared of fat-shaming doctors. I can only do this if the focus is on health alone, and if the dietician doesn't use the horrifying fat-shaming language you see on most of their sites (ie "obesity epidemic!" "you just guzzled down 1.5 bagels!" etc - yuck, I'm a person, not an embarrassment!)
I have no interest in just chatting about the psychological aspects of eating, which is why I'm specifically looking for a dietician, not just any nutritionist - I want more specific guidance on the technical aspects of how to build a healthier set of food choices.
I spoke with this nutritionist
by email, and thought she seemed wonderful, but she told me she isn't a registered dietician and that my eating routine and such don't sound like the problem, so she couldn't help me - she focuses on eating competence, which isn't really my primary issue. I want to find a registered dietician who reminds me of her!
Know anyone you could recommend?
