Hi there!!  Welcome!

My name is Deanna and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist living in Pittsburgh with a passion for intuitive eating, performance nutrition, reverse dieting, traveling, lifting weights, coming up with easy healthy recipes, and all things peanut butter.

Flexible eating has saved my life.  In the past, I tried many ways of eating from ‘clean eating’ to ‘raw vegan’ to ‘Paleo’ and I am here to show you eating ALL foods in moderation can save you from trying another fad diet, hurting your metabolism, or being confused with your nutrition choices.  I still prefer whole, plant-based foods and focus 90% of my nutrition around this but want to show you that understanding macronutrients, portions, and what foods make you feel the best (vs counting calories/cutting items out of your diet/following food fads) can change your entire life.

My main focus is to help and inspire others to achieve their own health and physical fitness goals while living a lifestyle full of balance and self love, not deprivation. I want to show others you don’t have to go to extreme measures to reach your goals.

I have my Master of Science Degree in Clinical Dietetics and Nutrition from the University of Pittsburgh, am a registered dietitian nutritionist, and have been working in corporate wellness for over 5 years now!

I am an NPC nationally qualified bikini competitor and have also run several full and half marathons.

I am certified in group fitness training and health coaching from the American Council on Exercise.

I co-founded HealthyBody Nutrition Consulting in 2015 and have helped hundreds of clients reach their goals.

I’ve lived in 7 different states and have learned to love meeting new people!

    Such a great blog! Slowly working over-coming my carbs fears as I build muscle and focus on becoming stronger.

    You are a breath of fresh air. I keep getting brainwashed by paleo, ketogenic and low carb proponents. I do battle some insulin resistance issues after eating carbs but also believe I can allow them into my diet just in the right proportions (for me). I have failed paleo so many times and never felt better even when I was super lean and adhering 100. So nice to see a RD who also flexible diets and allows sugar (OMG) into the diet in moderation. Extremes just do not work for most people in the long term. I’m a big fan now!

    ok so before I bother you with an email asking for more specifics on how you can help me,. I thought I’d ask of have you worked w/ slightly mid-aged(45) wanna-be bike racers before?

    yea I’ve read a bunch of books on health & fitness on my own. a few based on strength training, others for cyclists specifically & endurance athletes… had some short term success, but nothing long lasting.

    I’ve hit the wall in my weight loss efforts, nutrition & overall fitness…

    Hey! I’m currently a dietetics student and was wondering if you could expand on your professional career in the dietetics field. I’ve been feeling uncertain that I chose the right career path due to not loving clinical dietetics and was wondering if you could expand on your jobs and experiences. Thank you so much
