ABOUT FLEXIBLE NUTRITION
TO HELP CLIENTS DITCH THE DIET CULTURE MENTALITY TO OBTAIN A POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD, EXERCISE, BODY - AND ULTIMATELY, LONG-TERM HEALTH.
HOW FLEXIBLE NUTRITION LIVES THIS MISSION
Individual Nutrition Coaching:
Athletes of all backgrounds looking to improve their performance and/or heal their relationship with food & exercise.
Individuals looking to prevent or manage chronic conditions.
Partnerships, Consulting & Media
Partnering with businesses, organizations and brands in Wichita, Kansas (and beyond!) to educate and improve long-term health through a weight-inclusive and HAES ® aligned approach.
Flexible Nutrition takes a weight-inclusive & Health at Every Size (R) approach to client and community care. This means that we remove weight as a proxy for health, and instead focus on behaviors and modifiable outcomes, instead.
It is an approach that encourages respectful and compassionate care for individuals in all body types, shapes and sizes. This differs from what you may have typically heard in the doctors office or gym, as it does not prescribe weight loss as a cure for health/diseases, and does not place all responsibility for health on the individual. It is well documented in the research that weight-based interventions fail in the long-term, and promote a disordered relationship with food.
There are many ways we can honor our health outside of a focus on weight, and that is what we provide to clients in the work that we do.
Hi, I'm Maddi. I'm glad you're here.
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), and the Owner/Founder of Flexible Nutrition. I am so passionate about helping my clients and the communities I work with reject rigid food and exercise rules. I desire for each of the people I work with, whether individually or in passing, feel the freedom of a life not ruled by diet and exercise, and instead find a sustainable, and FLEXIBLE (get it?) approach to food and exercise for true and lasting health - however that looks for each individual.
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 was. Not only did I regain my period through this journey, but I regained my life and true health.
