Hello! And welcome to Werth Your While Nutrition. My name is Julia Werth and I am a Registered Dietitian and Reporter focused on making all foods fit through the principles of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size.
As a kid growing up I was a terrible picky eater – although you’d never believe it now. As a middle schooler I slowly learned to eat (and even love!) most foods through the fun of cooking. Unfortunately, by 16 my desires to perform better as an athlete and the persistent pressure to be thin brought me into a six-year-long battle with bulimia. Through the help of friends, family and the discovery of intuitive eating I have been able to heal my relationship with both food and exercise.
Today, I’m back in the kitchen and on the starting line for at least one marathon each year! My new favorite food is Mexican bean salad mixed in with double pork carnitas…but my true love will always be Sunday morning pancakes.
