onversation 87: The Story, Journey and Passion of Dr. Claudia T. Felty
“I love dessert, but there are so many things I thought I really really liked, but now I’m discovering this is too sweet for me. I can’t eat any more of this and that doesn’t happen unless you remove all the restrictions. I’m married, so we eat meals together. Removing the stress from when he asks if we can we do pizza tonight and I don’t need to have a meltdown anymore. It gives you so much empathy in which I think is so important living this experience, being a recovered calorie counter, getting rid of my activity trackers and just having the freedom to eat the food that I want and how much my body says I should have. Having the ability to do that and be able to teach someone else to do that who is struggling, it is so powerful. ” - Dr. Claudia T. Felty
Today’s conversation is with Dr. Claudia, a recovered calorie counter, dessert loving dietitian, educator, and dog mom who dreams big without diets.
A couple of years ago, I met Claudia at FNCE during a networking event. I felt as if I had met her before or knew her in some other professional group. Then I remembered how we connected on social media. She had been doing a series of educational videos on a variety of hot topics in nutrition. While we were talking in person, I learned more about her educational journey to become Dr. Claudia and her passion for intuitive and mindful eating. This woman is my intuitive eating go-to and someone I admire for how she is using her expertise in health communications to educate the world on food freedom.
Please enjoy my awesome conversation with Dr. Claudia.
