Hi. I’ve decided it’s time for me to make a public declaration. A declaration about what I believe in, how I believe in them, and why I’m here at all. Buckle in, this could be bumpy.

Hi. I’m Amee. Amee Severson. I’m a Registered Dietitian.

I’m bigger bodied.
I’m a different breed of dietitian. I teach and preach Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating. I am a firm believer in trusting your body and learning to look at yourself with gratitude and respect.
