We had the good fortune of connecting with Esosa Osagiede, MPH, RDN, LD and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Esosa, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I decided to start my business because I wanted to help women lose weight without chronic dieting. So many weight loss solutions require cutting out foods, barely eating, and do not actually teach you about food and nutrition. I want to help women become confident in their food choices and release them from the guilt and shame associated with eating.

What should our readers know about your business?

I started my business in 2021. My premier 3-month program is called the Nourished Mindset Academy. In that program, I help women who are ready to lose weight without yo-yo dieting, improve their relationship with food, and become truly confident in their food choices. I am most proud of the transformation I am helping many women through. I am always excited to work with someone new who is ready to change their mindset when it comes to their weight loss journey.

The journey so far has not been easy. I am still learning so much. There are definitely times when I ask myself “can I keep this going”, but by the grace of God, I am still going. Some lessons that I have learned so far are 1) my worth is not intertwined with the number of people who decide to purchase my services, 2) good things come to those with patience, and 3) my program and what I offer will continue to get better with time.

I want everybody to know that I am the Dietitian who keeps it real, relatable, and realistic. My philosophy about nutrition is food should be enjoyed not feared and a healthy diet is flexible and not rigid. If that sounds like something you resonate with, I’m the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for you.


If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am literally a homebody, so this is not a good question for me, lol. But, if they are into daytime activities, I would suggest they check out any upcoming festivals happening in Dallas or even recommend a food tour.
