Today, Kathy is joined by Dana Magee, and their topic is when food sensitivities are eating disorders in disguise. They discuss the difference between food sensitivity and food intolerance, how they differ from food allergies, where eating disorders come into the picture, and tapping into our bodies needs with kindness.
Dana is a REBEL Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who provides individual nutrition counseling sessions with the mission to rebuild her clients’ relationship with food.
Dana sees clients for overeating, Binge Eating Disorder, restrictive eating, emotional eating, PCOS, diabetes, and digestive wellness.
Many of Dana’s clients may have been on the dieting roller coaster for most of their lives and have experienced some weight loss only to gain it back and more, not to mention more stress from watching the number on the scale. The research shows that dieting just does not work and will bring the dieter further away from their nutrition and health goals. This is why Dana offers the REBEL Diets Program. Whether you have been a lifetime dieter or have just begun to experiment with dieting Dana can help you to nourish your body, improve your health, and limit your stress around food.
Dana’s goal is not only to help her clients improve upon their nutrition knowledge and to help create healthy habits, but also to better their quality of life and conquer their disordered eating. Dana is passionate about supporting her clients with the tools they need to allow them to become the experts on their own nutritional needs in order to achieve the long term goals they are seeking.
Dana also has a passion for creating quick and easy dishes as well as trying new recipes and sharing them with her clients. She further supports her clients with a blog and Facebook page dedicated to nutritional resources as well as step-by-step food preparation and grocery shopping tips.
Dana is a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health. She is also a board member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Behavioral Health Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group and a member of the Nutrition Entrepreneurs Dietetic Practice Group.
