Hi, I'm Megan, a bariatric dietitian and creator of My Bariatric Dietitian. I started My Bariatric Dietitian as a way to help bariatric patients during one of the most significant, and possibly overwhelming, times in their life. Since 2013 I have had the honor and joy of helping hundreds of bariatric patients restore their health, energy, and confidence. My experience at Seattle's leading Bariatric, Metabolic, and Endocrine Center solidified my passion for helping others and has helped me gain the experience to become a Board Certified Specialist in Obesity and Weight Management.
Despite many efforts towards a more empathetic and welcoming society, weight bias remains. While dealing with weight struggles throughout my own life, I can empathize with those who are looking for someone trustworthy who makes them feel welcomed, heard, and respected. I applaud the bravery of those who are struggling with disease of obesity who reach out for support in making lasting changes to improve their health, vitality, and quality of life.
Offering evidence-based recommendations and supportive tips, My Bariatric Dietitian gives experienced based and a research-supported take on bariatric nutrition. Please take a look around and don't hesitate to contact me with any additional inquiries.
I am glad you are here!
