I'm Christy Harrison, a registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor. I specialize in helping people make peace with food and their bodies.
I offer online intuitive eating courses and individual nutrition therapy from an anti-diet, Health at Every Size perspective, which means I'll never tell you to deprive yourself or ban certain foods from your life. Instead, I help you reject diet culture and tune into your body's own inner wisdom about how to truly nourish yourself.
In my weekly podcast, Food Psych, I talk with inspiring people about their relationships with food, roads to body acceptance, and revolutionary ideas about what health really means. Along the way, I share my own journey from disordered eater to anti-diet dietitian, and offer resources to help you free yourself from our culture's toxic messages about what we "should" eat and how we "should" look.
I'm also a journalist with more than 14 years of experience in food and nutrition media. I've written for and edited award-winning books, magazines, and websites, including Refinery29, Gourmet, Modernist Cuisine, The Food Network, and many more, and I've appeared as a guest expert or source in numerous media outlets. For others who are interested in pursuing similar career paths, I offer coaching and consulting to help people create careers they love in the media and health fields, hone their writing skills, and make their websites shine.
With the few remaining hours in the day, I perform improv comedy, practice yoga, and spend as much time as possible outdoors. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my fiancé and a cat named Harry Harrison.
