I’m Leah Kern, spiritual RDN, CDN, and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I am an anti-diet, intuitive eating, weight inclusive aligned dietitian working with clients to heal from disordered eating.
Love, laughter, connection, play, an inclusive approach, and firmly evidence-based Health At Every Size (HAES) and Intuitive Eating frameworks.
All people of all gender identities, social identities, races, abilities, body sizes, & backgrounds are seen, protected, & welcome. I strive to create an inclusive space and am committed to continuously learning from others with different lived experiences than me.
My passion for this work stems in part from my own story. I struggled with disordered eating for years, and it kept me from living as my most authentic and expansive self. When I discovered intuitive eating as a freshman in college, my whole world changed.
The Intuitive Eating framework showed me just how much I was living out of alignment with my values and my truth. It helped me see that diet culture — with its constant pressure for perfection — was completely unsustainable and not worth the sacrifice.
Helping folks heal their relationships with food and body is the exact work I feel I was put on this earth to do. I’m grateful every day that it’s the exact work I get to do.

On the other hand, the weight-normative, diet-centric frameworks have been shown to lead to binge eating, obsessive food thoughts, decreased self esteem, social isolation, and increased stress levels.
Equipping the members of your organization with intuitive eating tools can help them:
I feel it’s my obligation to use my personal experience and professional training to set others free from diet culture… and I’m on a mission to free as many people as possible. I hope that your group will be next. It would be my absolute honor to serve as your next guest teacher, speaker, or panelist.
