15th Anniversary Celebration with Marci RD Nutrition: Sale + Giveaway

It’s hard to believe that I opened the doors to Marci RD Nutrition Consulting 15 years ago. When I became a dietitian, I did not have big plans to become an entrepreneur. I didn’t envision my own business, a group practice, or an online education platform to train other clinicians. I had an inkling that [...]

Improve Your Body Positivity While Managing Chronic Illness and Eating Disorders

This co-occurring struggle is complicated, real, and there are very few resources available on the topic. Several years ago I was preparing for a talk on digestive disorders and eating disorders. I stumbled on a qualitative research study exploring the themes related to body image for people with chronic digestive health conditions. I was struck [...]

Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2024 – Healing in Community

Today marks the first day of Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW) with this year’s theme, “Healing in Community.” Historically, during eating disorders (ED) awareness week, I’ve aimed my efforts at clinicians outside the ED profession. This year, I’m taking a different approach and speaking directly to those of us already treating EDs, because in order [...]

The Gifts I Receive from My Nutrition Counseling Clients

I love gift giving. And as someone who celebrates Christmas, gift giving is front of mind this time of year. But lately I’ve been reflecting a lot on the gifts that my clients have given me over the years and wanted to share a bit from my heart as we close out 2023. Over the [...]

Marci’s Annual Book Round-Up for 2022

Typically, each January, I do a roundup of my favorite books from the previous year. Since I was out on leave this past January, I thought today was the PERFECT day to share my recap because here in the U.S., it’s National Book Day! Below are some of the books on the top of my [...]

Ready for an Eating Disorder Conference that is Very Different?

It’s spring here in the USA, which means conference season is in full force!! As someone who is borderline obsessed with ongoing learning and professional development, this is both exciting and overwhelming. There are so many compelling learning opportunities, yet we all have to operate within the limits of time and money. (I am still [...]

What Makes You Incredibly Happy?

Today, March 20th, is International Day of Happiness! It’s Marci! I’m kind of, sort of, back! As many of you know, I have been on maternity leave since October when my second son, Henri, was born. The last several months have been a pretty unbelievable whirlwind of emotions and sleep deprivation. Writing this feels like [...]

Learn to Take Up Space for Yourself

Taking up space can feel impossible and can often be a reason why you might feel stuck in your life or in your recovery. Hi! It’s Christine, one of the dietitians with the Marci RD team, still covering for her while she’s on Mat leave with the family! For those of you who might not [...]

How to Practice Gratitude with your Body during the Holidays

The holidays are approaching and this can be a tough time for many different reasons. Before we jump in, I did want to say that if you cannot be with loved ones or if this time of year is filled with mixed emotions, my thoughts are with you. ~ Christine Laker Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with [...]

Clinicians, Conferences and Expanding Your Skills

I find that October is a month where I look forward to attending conferences and events like the TEDD-WIND Inclusivity Conference. I do this in order to expand and elevate my skills so that my clients and students in my programs can grow as well. This year is a little different as I am away [...]

Special Eating Disorders Training Package for New Grads and RDNs

One of the most common questions I get from students and new dietitians is this, “Marci, how did you get into the field of eating disorders?” The honest answer is that I received zero training in school, a tiny bit of exposure in my internship, then threw myself into self-study at the very beginning of […]

Welcoming a New RD to the Team!

I opened the doors to my private practice exactly 11 years ago this month. It seems impossible that so much time has passed! And in those 11 years, I have welcomed 5 dietitians to my team. All of them compassionate, smart, hardworking, and fun! I have been truly blessed to be surrounded by women I […]

An update from Marci

I’m happy to be sending you a quick hello from my maternity leave. I’ve been reflecting on some of the principles I’ve taught my clients over the years and how they have been immensely helpful to me as I’ve transitioned into this new and very busy role as a parent. And what I love about […]
