Eating should be enjoyable, not the enemy!

Meet Kathleen

My name is Kathleen Hernder and I’m an non-diet Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor!​ I'm passionate about helping people stop making food the enemy and help make it enjoyable. Healthy eating doesn't mean diets and restriction, it means paying attention to your body and what makes you feel good!


I specialize in helping people stop the restriction and overeating cycle and also work in sports nutrition, diabetes management, heart healthy eating, eating disorders, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome management.

As I am a registered healthcare practitioner, my services may be covered under your extended healthcare plan. We even offer direct billing for some insurance companies to make services more accessible! Check with your extended healthcare provider to see if Registered Dietitian services are covered for you.

Want more information on eating and nutrition?
Want to learn more about why dieting doesn't work and what you can do instead? Want information about sport nutrition and managing your IBS symptoms? Check out my blog where I write about a variety of topics when it comes to eating so you can have a reliable, evidence-based resource when it comes to food! I also try to include some recipes when I remember to measure out what I'm doing in the kitchen so I can tell you guys about it!
 Keeping up with the latest nutrition crazes is exhausting but the good news is, you don't have to! Improving your eating and nutrition doesn't have to be confusing and it doesn't mean giving up your favourite foods.
When it comes to nutrition, trying all the eating plans and diets out there can leave you feeling hungry, deprived, and confused. Usually, you can follow a plan for a few weeks, or even a few months but next thing you know, you find yourself overeating and fixating on food. It can make you feel like something is wrong with you but the truth is, that's the side-effect of restricting our eating that doesn't get talked about enough. It's not your fault!
Want to try something different to help you learn to eat in a way that's health-promoting, sustainable, based on research, and allows you to stop thinking about food all the time? As a Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counsellor who uses the non-diet approach, I can help you navigate eating and food in a way that's sustainable and enjoyable to help you get off the diet rollercoaster and start enjoying food!
