Eva Haldis MS RD LDN
Hi there! I’m Eva – I’m so happy you are here!
I am a Registered Dietitian, I love to eat, I love working with people and I love to throw axes in a league (yep, you read that right!) Before I got to realize my true self as the above listed, I was too consumed with food and dieting to ever have room to do anything else. It wasn’t until I healed my relationship to food that the world opened up around me.
It’s why I am so passionate about helping people stop dieting and start living!
I help women who are struggling with feeling out of control around eating and who have poor body image heal their relationship to food so they can be free from diets for good.
The facts are there – research shows that over 90% of dieters will regain any weight lost during a diet, with 2/3 of those people, gaining more weight. So not only do diets not work, but they leave you feeling like it’s YOUR fault. Guess what? It’s not.
I’ve seen first hand the damage dieting does to self esteem, mental health, and overall health and knew there had to be another way…and there is!
Prior to becoming a dietitian, I was there too…poor body image, disordered eating, and non-stop thoughts about how to control and manipulate my body.
In the years since becoming a dietitian, my philosophy and my own relationship with food has changed so much. After a few years of using the standard weight management approach, I was seeing more and more how ineffective this was. I saw how my patients and clients continued to blame themselves & feel immense guilt for gaining any weight lost. I saw how their self esteem and body image worsened. I remember a client once telling me, after speaking with her doctor about her weight, “fat people already feel bad about ourselves, we don’t need someone else to make us feel worse” and that is when I knew I needed to make a change.
Our culture is obsessed with thin bodies, and controlling our food intake and the false idea that being thinner = healthier.
I also see the damage that weight stigma, or weight-based discrimination, has on those in larger bodies – which research shows contributes to poorer health outcomes.
More and more, research shows us that pursuing intentional weight loss (also known as dieting!) increases risks for disordered eating, body dissatisfaction, depression, poor self esteem, and more.
So to me – the evidence is clear.
In my practice, you will find an approach that is based on compassion and understanding – I get why you want to diet and lose weight. We hold space for this extremely valid emotion while simultaneously working to move away from focusing on the scale and using your intuition to guide you, regardless of size.
I want to do better as a clinician and be better, and I hope I can help you too!
