Meet Dietitian Cassie
I’m Cassie, better known as Dietitian Cassie :) I am a Registered, Licensed Dietitian, health coach and fitness and nutrition enthusiast. I am passionate about helping people establish a balanced lifestyle through real food and exercise, and leading by example. I focus on debunking diet rumors, myths and fads, and teach how to eat healthy by breaking down research-based material into practical forms that can be implemented into any way of life. With the mixed array of information, diet books and latest fads, shopping and eating can be extremely confusing for everyone. I show you what this looks like and how it can fit into all lifestyles. I am different than many other practicing dietitians in the sense that I will never tell you to count calories, points or limit grams of fat, but rather supports developing a healthy relationship with real, whole foods. No gimmicks. No diets. No magic pills. Just real food for optimal health.
I specialize in weight loss, eating disorder recovery, sports nutrition, eating disorders, kid’s nutrition, women’s health and gut health (digestive issues.) I have experience working with a wide variety of populations. I work part time at a well known hospital in Saint Paul, MN where I am a clinical dietitian, and also hold the title of the “weight loss dietitian.” I have worked at the VA Hospital in Chicago, IL, Miller-Dwan Hospital in Duluth, MN, and I currently do counseling at various treatment centers throughout the metro with children, teens and adults who are overcoming eating disorders and addictions. Every day, I see the healing power of real food.
I do nutrition and lifestyle coaching appointments via Skype, phone and in-person, where I take a “big picture” approach by looking at the entire health history, existing medical conditions, medications, weight and diet history to determine the best, healing and life giving treatment plan. I teach my clients how to eat to support their unique biochemistry, metabolism and heal from the inside out, by getting back in touch with their bodies and reestablishing a healthy relationship with food. Many clients come to me with a goal of weight loss and are shocked at how many other health issues are resolved in their journey to wellness with a real food approach.
I offer free daily nutrition tips via Twitter and Facebook, along with weekly blog posts. I teach educational nutrition classes throughout the community and corporate setting and am the co-host of the weekly podcast radio show “Low Carb Conversations” with Jimmy Moore.
I am a former competitive gymnast, but now I mainly focus on marathon running and keeping myself active with outdoor activities like rock climbing, hiking, rollerblading and cliff jumping. :) I strive to be an example of someone living a balanced lifestyle.
I love human anatomy and physiology—learning how the body works and responds to food and exercise. I hold degrees in Dietetics and Corporate and Community Fitness from Minnesota State University, and I’ve completed masters nutrition courses at the University of Illinois— Chicago. I still love learning, and spend a majority of my time reading current nutrition and health articles and analyzing the latest research studies.
I’m glad you found my website and hope it helps you get back to the basics of healthy eating and way of living. I love sharing my latest discoveries in recipes, foods and current health research and hope it can help you on your journey to wellness. For more nutrition tips and resources, follow me on Twitter, Facebook or get in touch with me.
