Sumner Brooks, MPH, RDN is a professional nutrition therapist and registered dietitian located in Portland, Oregon (OR). The eating disorder treatment practice is based on a non-dieting mentality, allowing clients to finally find a peaceful relationship with food through Intuitive Eating.
Clients come to work one-on-one with Sumner for help overcoming behaviors that lead to poor physical and emotional health. Areas of expertise include binge eating (BED), compulsive overeating, emotional eating, and self-diagnosed food addiction. She understands that really learning to change is not as easy as just following a meal plan. She understands that you may feel you've tried everything and failed.
Why Intuitive Eating? Because it is your only choice if you truly want to be free from obsessing, yo-yo dieting and swinging back and forth between under-eating and overeating. Intuitive Eating is a well-researched, evidence-based approach to health and weight normalization.
Dieting is the number one predictor of weight gain and disordered eating and Sumner won't take your money to put you on another diet. That's exactly why her business is called Not On A Diet, in Portland, OR. She will help you with the following: identify physiological triggers to overeating, know how your metabolism is suffering from dieting, learn about how your emotions are causing you to overeat, and she will teach you a new way of eating that works for you and feels like a freedom you really didn't think was possible. The craziest thing is, this is not too good to be true.
But, you JUST WANT A DIET PLAN, you say? You may not know that you have disordered eating. Over 85% of the clients who come to Sumner for weight concerns demonstrate moderate to severe disordered eating behaviors that won't get better from starting another diet - in fact, they will worsen. If you are tired of searching and failing on diets and food rules, then you've come to the right place.
