Hello, I’m Tatiana. I am a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist and a Certified Nutrition Specialist. I’m passionate about food and it’s incredible ability to heal us physically and emotionally. We often misuse food to fill in some emotional gaps in our lives, or label foods as “good”or “bad”, or develop disordered eating behaviors to manipulate our body size. Food becomes an enemy and is blamed for fattening and sickening us.
Here at Make Sense Nutrition I help people
- normalize their relationships with food,
- peel off the layers of misunderstood physical, nutritional and emotional needs,
- lose weight as a side effect of finding peace with food,
- stop obsessing about food and
- start living the freedom!
Make Sense Nutrition uses the principles of intuitive eating combined with scientific data to provide for the body and mind and make our food choices from the place of mindfulness, awareness and self-care, to be guided by the balanced combination of wants and needs.
Eating intuitively and honoring your hunger and fullness, listening to what your body asks for – not just with regards to food, but exercise and rest among other needs – are the core principles of living happily and in tune with your body. Recognizing the mind and body connection is necessary to achieve wellness and a healthy relationship with food.
Nutrition that makes sense is the one based on your body’s needs, its internal cues, and is not dictated by external rules like rigid diets. With that said, we should also keep in mind that so much research in the field of nutrition has brought us awareness of how certain foods contain certain nutrients that help fight or prevent disease or maintain a medical conditions. We should know that we can use food to our advantage to create the environment for our health to thrive.
Nutrition and healthy living have always been my passion and hobby, and in 2013 I decided to mend them into a career – to be able to help people achieve their health goals by dietary and lifestyle intervention along with finding peace in their relationship with food. I graduated from the University of Miami with Master of Science in Nutrition for Health and Human Performance. And now my job is to help you find your path to food freedom, health and vitality.
