Dietitian / Posted 5 years ago
My name is Lyndi Cohen (aka The Nude Nutritionist), a dietitian and nutritionist from Sydney Australia who understands first hand that diets cause more harm than good.
From a young age I was convinced that my life would be better if I was thinner. Determined to weigh less, I started dieting. Each diet would start off well but after weeks of denial and deprivation, my desperation for food (that wasn’t corn thins or carrot sticks) drove me to eat everything in sight.
Unfortunately, my experience with dieting is widespread as only 5% of people who diet manage to keep the weight off. After healing my rocky relationship with food, losing 20kg and becoming a dietitian and nutritionist, I have made it my mission to help others (like me) who feel let down by diets and want to make peace with their body, food and health.
My nutrition philosophy is simple: Eat more plants and wholefoods, enjoy the foods you eat and eat when hungry. This common-sense approach to nutrition allows my clients to find the perfect weight for their body, find health at every size (HAES) and feel confident about making healthy choices.
I am regularly quoted in the media as a body positive ambassador, a nutrition expert and advocate for wholefoods. Disclaimer: The nude nutritionist wears clothes during consults and interviews.
