I recently read this article in Women’s Health that truly resonated with me. The biggest mis-conceptions I come across for my weight management clients is that eating as little as possible will get them to their goals much faster! This couldn't be further from the truth! I have clients that are classified as being obese or overweight and 9 times out of 10 these individuals aren't eating enough throughout the day!
I explain to my clients that not eating enough can slowdown your metabolism down regardless of all of the exercise they are doing! I love this article because it sheds light on the science.

I’m Kristen Kochenour, a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist in Philadelphia. I received my Master’s degree from Drexel University in Human Nutrition and Dietetics and did my post grad work through the University of Houston.
As a young adult, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Once I discovered changing my diet was the only therapy to manage this disease and all of my symptoms, my whole life changed. I went from feeling sluggish and bloated everyday to feeling energized and good about how overall my body felt. I then decided to pursue my registered dietitian licensure to help others reach their goals and reach their potential to be able to live life to the fullest. I am also an endurance athlete who understands the nutritional needs of athletes from not only my education by my personal experience!
My philosophy stems from incorporating healthy eating into your current lifestyle based on scientifically-based guidelines. There is no "quick fix" or "magic pill". Unfortunately, I looked everywhere for those and they don't exist.
As a registered dietitian and nutritionist, what I will give you are the tools for you to be able to decipher what you think your body wants verses what your body actually needs. We will work as a team to create goals and help you achieve your full potential for a happy, healthy lifestyle.
