Tammy S. Cook, MS, RD, LD, CEDRD
Registered Licensed Dietitian
Certified Eating Disorder Dietitian
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of specifically tailored meal plans devised and monitored by your physician and dietitian.
I will help you develop an individualized high-performance meal plan, reach your competitive weight, and teach you how to eat to compete pre-during-post activity.
We will be using principles and concepts from Ellyn Satter (Eating Competence), Evelyn Tribole (Intuitive Eating) and Dr. Michelle May (Mindful Eating)
Before you opt for an “external remodeling” of your body, work on the “internal problem” – your perceptions, beliefs, thoughts, feelings and actions that pertain to your physical appearance
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Because everyone with autism is different, it is important that I treat them as such. I take a holistic and comprehensive approach to pinpoint and treat your nutritional problem
This community has experienced a surge in the diagnosis of eating disorders. I will work with you to gain a better understanding of your unique situation while creating an open space to address disordered eating and body image concerns
Health at Every Size (HAES)
I whole-heartedly endorse Linda Bacon’s health at every size research. This approach works better than dieting
Post Bariatric Surgery
I will provide comprehensive education about dietary modifications, physical activity, hydration, nutritional supplements, weight loss expectations and how to handle emotions that cause you to eat
I will take an individualized approach to your weight management issues while considering your history (what has worked/not worked, and what is realistic for you now). I will customize a lifestyle plan that helps you achieve your goals, whether weight loss, weight gain or weight maintenance
