We had the good fortune of connecting with Kristin Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kristin, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
There is a common misconception that all dietitians preach eating less, exercising more and weight loss. Many people think that dietitians endorse dieting and focus on the number on the scale all in the name of “health.” However, many non-diet dietitians, including myself, practice from an intuitive eating approach where we believe that all foods fit and that a healthy relationship with food is foundational to living a healthy life. Many dietitians, including myself, also practice using a Health At Every Size model and focus on behaviors versus the number on the scale.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a certified eating disorder registered dietitian with a private practice in DFW called Wonderfully Made Nutrition Counseling. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, chronic dieting and body image concerns. I help individuals to make peace with food using a non-diet approach. I love witnessing individuals experience food freedom for the first time in their lives and it is an honor to walk alongside people in their recovery journeys. For clients who are interested, I practice using a faith-based approach to nutrition counseling where we look at what the Bible has to say about food, body image, worth and identity. I have also founded the annual women’s body image conference, In His Image which is a day long conference hearing from licensed professional counselors, registered dietitians as well as a guest panel all on the topic of body image from a biblical worldview. Something I am really excited about is my newly published book, Unworthy Weight! It can be purchased on my website at www.wonderfullymadenutritioncounseling.com/shop

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I grew up in the suburbs of DFW and my husband and I lived in Dallas for a few years prior to moving south of the metroplex to the country. We now live on 4 acres with donkeys and pigs and it is the dream, tractor and all! I still commute to the city to my office to see clients and I love trying out all of the delicious restaurants that the city has to offer! My all time favorite restaurant is Matt’s Ranchero in Lakewood. It is like my Cheers where everybody knows your name! Lakewood is one of my favorite parts of town! I love the beautiful homes and attend their annual home tours each Fall! I love driving down historic Swiss Avenue and also visiting White Rock Lake as well as the Dallas Arboretum. You can find me in any hole in the wall antique store in east Dallas or really anywhere for that matter!
