Accepting new clients Get In Touch!

The latest trends are confusing.

Your friend told you about the newest fad diet they’re following.

One website says a certain food is bad for you and the next says it’s a miracle superfood.

The answer is not starving yourself, and it’s certainly not some generic meal plan that came out of a magazine or from a blogger.

Nutrition doesn’t have to be this confusing.

One of the things that keeps coming up with the clients we work with is that they thought nutrition was extremly confusing and the reason they weren’t losing weight or lowering their blood pressure was because it was too complicated. This is plain wrong! 

Nutrition done the right way is very simple. 

We’ve been helping our clients apply our philosophy since 2015 and in most cases, our clients are able to maintain these massive lifestyle changes with ease. 

How we do nutrition

To be successful, you need to develop eating habits that excite you. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring, and with the dietitians at OnSide, it isn’t. It can be hard to find the right information especially when everyone is saying something different.

We don’t do fad diets. We’ll give you plans that are going to work for the rest of your life.


Health and wellness

First we start by sitting down and finding out exactly what your goals are. After your goals, we looks at things like stress, sleep, current nutrition and routine and find out what you’ll actually enjoy. After we’ve got all the info, we’ll create a plan for you that you cannot resist!


Sports Nutrition

Performing at your peak is something that requires dialing in many factors. We’ll analyze everything from sleep patterns, training programs, seasonal peaks, current nutrition habits, and game-day nutrition needs. If you haven’t put the effort into proper sports nutrition to enhance your game, you are leaving a lot on the table


A happy and healthy workplace can significantly impact someone’s overall well-being. Through workplace challenges, nutrition education or dietitian visits,  we’ve turned corporate settings into family.


Diabetes Management

There’s a lot to know about diabetes and trying to keep things in check day to day can be tricky. Whether diabetes is brand new for you, or you’re in need of a little tune-up, our Registered Dietitian (who’s also a Certified Diabetes Educator!) can help get you on the right track.

We now do remote nutrition consulting!

It’s more important than ever to stay healthy right now. That’s why we’ve made it even easier to access our nutrition services. Here’s how it works:

• If you’re eligible, we do direct billing. You may pay nothing out of pocket.
• Video conferencing for face to face interaction.
• Weekly check in to help you build positive habits and keep you on track.
• Creative ways to enjoy eating and stay healthy during isolation.

Why a dietitian?

Registered Dietitians (RD) are the only regulated health professionals in the field of nutrition. They have extensive education and training to help you cut through the confusion and give you the best up-to-date and credible nutrition information to support your goals. Our in-house dietitians have additional education and expertise in nutrition for sport and athletic performance from the International Olympic Committee.
