Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD)

Hi, I’m Kim.

I started Active Bariatric Nutrition after hearing so many bariatric patients express frustration and feeling lost when dealing with the challenges of living an active lifestyle after their surgery. I frequently saw how the lack of one-on-one nutrition support was missing at the time it is the most critical – after the surgery.

Many patients expressed feeling like they were ‘going it alone’ and running into challenges and setbacks from cookie-cutter nutritional guidelines that didn’t meet their unique requirements of post-surgery needs and fueling for training.

As a Registered Dietitian, with 16 years of experience working with bariatric individuals who want to level up their nutrition to meet their training goals, I can help you to bridge the gap between your bariatric nutrition guidelines and sports nutrition guidelines to save you time and frustration.

With Active Bariatric Nutrition, I help people safely and knowledgeably fuel their body to achieve their maximum fitness goals. I get to build strong relationships and provide personal support at an individual level that is just not practical in a traditional clinic environment.

I get to see people reach their goals beyond the scale and tape measure. I have helped active bariatric individuals accomplish amazing fitness goals, even ones they previously thought were impossible, by working closely with them to develop a plan that is accessible and achievable. I love to see them thrive in living the life they have worked so hard for.

I really look forward to hearing about you and your goals during our first discovery call, and getting started on this journey with you.

Live the life you have worked so hard for.
