Our Nutrition Philosophy:

Eating for Well-being: A Mindful Approach

Dianna Schalles, MS, RDN, LD, is a licensed ‘Am I Hungry’® mindful eating facilitator and is passionate about helping students heal their relationship with food.  She promotes a Health at Every Size, weight inclusive approach and will partner with you to find sustainable, positive solutions…..paving the path to a lifetime of well-being rather than dieting and deprivation.

Health at Every Size® Principles:
  • Accepting and respecting the diversity of body shapes and sizes
  • Recognizing that health and well-being are multi-dimensional and that they include physical, social, spiritual, occupational, emotional, and intellectual aspects
  • Promoting all aspects of health and well-being for people of all sizes
  • Promoting eating in a manner which balances individual nutritional needs, hunger, satiety, appetite, and pleasure
  • Promoting individually appropriate, enjoyable, life-enhancing physical activity, rather than exercise that is focused on a goal of weight loss


About ‘Am I Hungry”®

Using a simple model called the Mindfull Eating Cycle (developed by Am I Hungry? Founder Michelle May, M.D.), you learn how to be in charge of your eating decisions without restriction, deprivation, or guilt.
