Rachael Hartley, RD, LD, is a dietitian and nutrition therapist who really, really, really loves food. She promotes a non-diet approach by focusing on nutrition rooted in nourishment, not deprivation and restriction, to help people live a happier and healthier life. As a certified intuitive eating counselor, she is fiercely passionate about helping others ditch the diet rules and rediscover the joy of eating. With a compassionate and empathetic approach, her goal is to help others redefine health and discover their own path to food peace. In 2014, Rachael launched her virtual and in-person private practice as a place to focus on non-diet nutrition and wellness. She specializes in intuitive eating, disordered eating and eating disorders, PCOS, and IBS. On her blog, The Joy of Eating, Rachael shares nutritious and delicious recipes that show how all foods fit. She is a nationally recognized dietitian and public speaker. Rachael regularly contributes to many media outlets as an expert source. She is also active in her local and national dietetics' associations and was the recipient of the South Carolina Young Dietitian of the Year Award.
