#stripthenonsense and eat with happiness

We are on a mission to strip back on nutrition nonsense and help you to find a happy, healthy, trusting and freeing relationship with food and your body. We take the most up-to-date evidence-based nutrition information and empower you to make changes to your health and lifestyle via online personalised nutrition coaching. 

 Meet the team

Nude Nutrition was founded in 2017, by Registered Dietitian, Katherine Kimber. She has carefully selected a team of specialist online registered Dietitian’s and professionals who have a wealth of experience in helping people heal from difficult relationships with food and their body.

We take a unique non-diet approach, specialise in helping you to cultivate body wisdom and trust through Intuitive Eating. We work with those who feel stuck with food, those who experience eating disorders, disordered eating, and generally challenging relationships with food and their bodies. We can work with you if you have a diagnosed eating disorder, disordered eating, and/or are feeling a bit muddled with other needs in the mix – like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), (or gut issues you feel are linked to food), Diabetes, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Fertility, Pregnancy, or have Sport specific needs. We aim to empower you to find body trust, food freedom, and happiness, to improve your overall health and wellbeing.

As online nutrition professionals, we do this work as we have all experienced a troubled relationship with food and body image in some way or another. There is no measuring, weighting calorie counting, tracking etc. We are very sensitive to this, and practice through a body inclusive lens. We hold you as the experts of your own bodies, and can assure you, we won’t be offering another hidden diet!

Ruby Polido, Nude Nutrition

Ruby Polido

Copywriter & Content Support

She/Her

About

Ruby is Nude Nutrition’s copywriter. She wasn’t always interested in Intuitive Eating or helping dietitians who have life-changing programs. In fact, meeting Kat made her curious about Intuitive Eating —  even questioning if she’s on a diet. Stumbling upon Kat’s work inspired her to help more intuitive eating experts get their mission out there — to help more people achieve food freedom and happiness. Her 7 years as a Research Assistant made her realise her passion for writing. She sees herself growing as a copywriter while using her spare time learning Japanese, and maybe someday teaching it too.

Q&A

  • Favourite place to travel: Not much of a traveller — but I’m a big foodie and I’d love to explore Japan and Thailand a few years from now!
  • How would your friends describe you: most would say quite serious, mushy, monotasker, reliable, persistent
  • Ideal weekend consists of: out with nature somewhere, preferably by the beach, away from the buzz of tech.
  • Favourite way to relax: reading anything that strikes me!
  • Favourite pudding: leche flan 

Our approach

There is a real focus on ‘weight loss’ for optimal health, with so many people looking to diets, fads and quick fixes. It’s understandable in the culture that we live in. In our NHS and private practice experience, we have seen a huge number of clients who wanted to lose weight but without officially ‘dieting’. Or, who had been through treatment for an eating disorder, but never felt fully recovered. They were often having difficulty with:

Binge eating, compulsive eating, or feeling out of control around foods (usually after periods of being ‘good’, ‘healthy’ or ‘clean’)

Emotional eating, anxiety eating, stress eating or comfort eating

Eating when not hungry or eating past the point of comfortable fullness (overeating)

Weight yo-yoing

Food obsession and feeling guilty after eating

These are unfortunately just some of the side effects of focusing on weight loss that nobody ever really talks about. Some of this is exacerbated by confusion and caused by pseudoscience seen in the media.

We would often hear our clients say

“I need to lose the weight first, and then I will tackle the other eating problems.”

“I know what I need to do, I just need some accountability and more self-control.”

“This time it’s different. I feel ready & motivated to lose the weight again and keep it off for good.”

Have you ever thought or said the above statements? 

Having delved into the research to support these clients, we realised they (and us) needed to turn away from dieting, food restriction and any other method of restriction in the pursuit of weight loss.

After all, the research proves that restriction leads to further weight gain over time, and can actually trigger the behaviours above.

So what is the magic? Is there really a way out? Thankfully there is, and it’s through non-diet approaches like Intuitive Eating. 

At Nude Nutrition, we draw upon this evidenced based approach as part of our method, to support you find food freedom.

Whether this be in recovery from chronic dieting, disordered eating, eating disorders, and just feeling stuck with food. 

Intuitive eating

This is an evidence-based approach, using a series of tools and skills to help you move away from rigid external rules, allowing you to finally trust your body and its signals again. This is truly a revolutionary approach
for both me and my clients.

It’s an approach that is designed to help free you from a difficult relationship with food. Many benefits my clients report include increased energy, decreased anxiety around food and eating, feeling freer – more content and comfortable in their body. It’s certainly changed my life for the better!

One of the best things is that you can’t ‘mess up’ as this is not another diet! You no longer have to feel exhausted by endless feelings of failure. It’s about learning to be guided by your body and trusting yourself, rather than a set of rules defined by someone else.

Intuitive eating can be used as part of recovery from an eating disorder, with some adaptations. Please contact us for more on this. 

 

Key benefits

The evidenced-based benefits of this way of eating include:

Improved health and lower Body Mass Index (BMI)

Reduce disordered and emotional eating
