Meet Melanie Beers
Melanie is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified LEAP Therapist. She is also certified in adult weight management through the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. Since joining Nourish in 2014, Melanie has provided nutrition counseling services, group seminars, cooking demonstrations, and given expert nutrition advice to her clients and the public.
Melanie practices medical nutrition therapy to help her clients prevent or manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, PCOS, and heart disease through diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. Change can be a scary subject, and Melanie loves nothing more than to empower clients to make small, sustainable changes to reach their health and wellness goals!
Melanie specializes in food allergies and sensitivities by offering the Lifestyle Eating and Performance (LEAP) program to reduce inflammation and eliminate symptoms of adverse food reactions. Her creativity in the kitchen and knowledge of alternative ingredients helps individuals and families make meal planning stress-free.
Melanie also helps clients with a history of disordered eating or chronic dieting. She motivates and guides her clients to find their balance with food and exercise by ditching deprivation and feeling good in their bodies. By teaching mindful and intuitive eating strategies, her clients are able to stop stressing about food and enrich their lives. She strives to show her clients that eating well and preparing your own meals doesn’t have to be complicated or boring—but rather, enjoyable and even quite tasty.
When Melanie is not at Nourish, you can find her outdoors and on the water. She enjoys spending time with her family boating, paddleboarding, hiking or biking around Baltimore/DC. Other areas of interests are watching cute puppy videos, impromptu road trips, and picnics. Her favorite foods include Thai cuisine, blueberry muffins, anything topped with avocado, and a good powerhouse sandwich.
