ABOUT ME

I’m Emily Kichler, an Intuitive Eating Registered Dietitian. 

This means it’s my mission to help women find food freedom through the principles of Intuitive Eating. 

 

Back in the day, I was a slave to diet culture. Maybe you can relate? I kept food journals and calorie counts religiously, I’d drown in guilt when I couldn’t stick to my diet and inevitably I’d end up secretly binging on all the “bad” foods that were off-limits. I felt disgusted and ashamed of my body. Eventually I realized how much diet culture was controlling who I was showing up as in the world, and I decided I just couldn’t do it anymore. I was ready to let go of those deeply entrenched beliefs and try something new.

 

Over time, I transformed my relationship with food and my body. Eventually I stumbled on Intuitive Eating and I KNEW that this was the answer - now I live these principles every day! I’m free from the food rules, the shame and the anxiety. I give myself permission to eat any and all foods in a way that honours my body’s internal wisdom. I get so much pleasure from my love of food, of eating and of cooking. I move my body in a way that feels good as a form of self-care, not as punishment for what I ate. My worth isn’t defined by my body size or shape and I respect my body with self-love. If I was able to overcome my struggles with food, you can too. Today I help other women to reclaim their lives from diet culture and find food freedom through Intuitive Eating.

My first passion was for cooking, so in 2009 I graduated from the Stratford Chefs School. After a few years of cooking professionally, I realized I was looking for more.

So, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Foods and Nutrition, then a combination dietetic internship and Master of Science in Foods and Nutrition at Western University and I became a Registered Dietitian.

I worked in the magazine industry as associate food editor at Chatelaine, and freelance recipe developer at Canadian Living.

In 2019 I moved back to my small hometown, Simcoe, where I now live with my husband, Zebb and two cats, Louie and Rupert.
