We thought you’d probably like to get to know them a bit better. Today we are introducing Josée Sovinsky…

Josée is a Registered Dietitian working in a community setting in Toronto, Ontario.

Hi, everyone!

Josee-SovinskyMy name is Josée (pronounced Jo-Zay) and I am passionate, curious, and optimistic Non-Diet Dietitian. Originally from a very small town in Québec, I am now a big city girl living the dream in Toronto, Ontario.

I work in a community setting where I help people with a variety of complex issues improve their nutrition and relationship with food through mindful and intuitive eating. 

When I first started my degree, I was excited to join a profession where I can help better people’s lives through adequate nourishment and finding pleasure in food. I discouragement and heartbreak set in when I realized how weight-focused dietitians tend to be. This approach can result in dieticians causing inherent harm without realizing it.

For this reason, I struggled with the idea of having “RD” beside my name. I truly began to question my future career. However, through my own experience with disordered eating, I was fortunate to connect with like-minded dietitians who truly inspire me.

Through trial and error, I found a way to practice dietetics that doesn’t conflict with my values and as a result brings me great joy.

My hope as a dietitian is to see people ditch the diet mentality. I want them to embrace their body and make peace with food. This is something I promote daily both through my work and my social media channels.

I am beyond excited to join the Ask an Expert Column and look forward to supporting you in your Food Peace journey!
