ABOUT FLEXIBLE NUTRITION
TO EQUIP ADULTS OF ALL BACKGROUNDS WITH THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO INCREASE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND PROMOTE HEALTH FOR THE LONG-TERM.
BEHIND THE SCENES
WELCOME! MY NAME IS MADDI OSBURN, A REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST, AND THE OWNER/FOUNDER OF FLEXIBLE NUTRITION. MY PASSION IS HELPING MY CLIENTS REJECT RIGID FOOD AND EXERCISE RULES, AND CHOOSE A FLEXIBLE, YET EFFECTIVE NUTRITION APPROACH TO ENJOY THE SPORT THEY LOVE AND LONG-TERM HEALTH.
I am an anti-diet, weight-inclusive Dietitian. This means that I do not promote or recommend fad diets to my clients, or in any other aspects of my work. This means that I do not use weight as a proxy for your health OR success with me. An individual's weight is largely determined by genetics and social determinants of health (factors largely outside of our control). There are many ways we can honor our health and increase our fitness/athletic performance outside of a focus on weight, and that is what I provide to my clients in the work that I do.
THE SHORT STORY
For many years I suffered from Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, a condition where my body completely shut down my menstrual cycle due to a combination of chronic under-eating, stress and high-intensity exercise. My journey towards restoring my period involved addressing the deeply held incorrect beliefs I had about what health and fitness meant to me. Not only did I regain my period through this journey, but I regained my life and true health.
