Meet Gail Kardish, Registered Dietitian
Welcome to my webpage. I am a registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counsellor who specializes in nutrition and mental health. I have chosen a kiwi with a heart to represent my private practice. Let me explain why...
First the obvious reason is that it is a food and I'm a dietitian. The second reason may also be obvious for those of you who follow me on social media....I have a pet bird and his name is Kiwi.
The most important reason though is that it represents what I teach which is self acceptance. We live in a society where outside appearances are what we tend to focus on and we forget who we are on the inside. This is not healthy and has driven many people to diets, eating disorders and body image issues in attempts to change their outer appearance. Like a kiwi though, it is not about the outside but rather the inside that counts. It is the inside of a kiwi that has the taste, vitamins, minerals, and beautiful colour. I teach people how to find and nurture their inner beauty by addressing their food mood and attitude.
Want to know my thoughts on all things related to food, mood and attitude?
What are the truths about nutrition and what are the myths? How and what can be believed? How does food and nutrition affect our moods? How do our moods affect our nutrition? Why do we use food to help us cope with emotions?
Why do people struggle so much with their body image? How can we all work on self acceptance more? How can we change society's views and attitudes on our bodies and shapes?
These answers and so much more are answered in my blog. Come check it out here!
My specialties include intuitive eating, eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder), disordered eating (yo-yo dieters, constant dieters), addictions, depression and anxiety. I love helping people work at developing a healthy relationship with food and adapting this as part of a healthy lifestyle. My philosophy is that all food is good food in moderation. I also help people work at self acceptance and body image issues. In short, I help people work with their food, mood and attitude!
