Customized Food Coaching
Food & Nutrition Coaching
Want to change your body composition? I will help you get there.
Happy with your body composition, but want to increase your energy levels or address a clinical issue? We can do that too!
You will reach your goals. Be prepared to make some changes, not only to what you eat, but also how you think about food.
“Even if we all ate and exercised the same, we would still look very different.” This is probably the most important tenet of nutrition counseling. Your plan will be customized to your lifestyle, goals and preferences.

About Addie Claire
Registered Dietitian, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Originally from Charlotte, Addie Claire (AC) graduated from UNC Chapel Hill with BA’s in both Psychology and Spanish. She worked as an Intensive In-Home Counselor in Wake County before realizing that nutrition counseling was her calling. AC went back to school to earn her Masters of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Meredith College in Raleigh. After graduation and her Dietetic Internship year, she spent three years in Northwest Washington, DC as Director of Nutrition for VIDA Fitness.
AC’s triple specialization in mental health, nutrition, and fitness lends her a unique ability to help her clients change not only their diet and exercise habits, but also their overall relationship with food. After all- your relationship with food is the one you cannot end!
In her DC practice, she has spent hundreds of hours helping clients achieve all different goals. AC’s unique experience is invaluable to YOU in your pursuit of your goals.
My first priority is making a plan that fits your life, not the other way around. Whatever you do to reach your goals, you’re going to have to KEEP doing it if you want to maintain your results. This doesn’t mean you need to be strict forever, or track your intake forever, but if you do something unsustainable, you will ultimately backslide over and over again.
We will take a deep dive into your history so I have a solid understanding of where you are coming from, both physically and mentally. I will review your current habits and make specific recommendations tailored to your lifestyle, family dynamic and activity level. We will also change your plan as we learn together what works best for YOU.
No two clients are the same. You will get no “cookie cutter” meal plans from me. Every single template, snack list, and dining guide is customized to your specific goals and preferences. You will have access to me via text and email to tweak your plan as you go, and we will have video-Telehealth or in-person sessions to make the more significant changes.

What my clients are saying:
“My history with my weight and weight loss is something I struggled with before Addie. Not realizing I had a hormonal disorder and growing up on a typical Midwestern diet meant that the scale and waistband kept getting higher. Through meeting Addie, I have achieved so many things. I lost 13 pounds within about 9 months. The last time I had that sort of success I had made myself sick and it took over 18 months. However, Addie is helping to change my mindset with the scale. I’m learning about building muscle, losing fat, and that the number on the scale doesn’t define my worth.”
“Prior to seeing Addie, I had no idea what I was doing with my diet- I was feeling my way through the dark, eating only what I felt like eating or thought my body needed. I wasn’t tracking or had no clue what mixture of macronutrients my body needed. I’ve been able to achieve significant muscle gain. I feel, however, the most important achievement I’ve gained through working with Addie is a new understanding of my body’s reaction when I eat, don’t eat, or splurge on rich foods. I’m learning diet isn’t about restriction but about planning, thoughtfulness, and having a guide who can explain to you what you are going through.”
“Prior to meeting Addie, I ate healthy and was active, but I was not attaining my weight loss goals. I did not understand the concept of macronutrients and was struggling to eat enough protein- every day. Addie helped me learn how to track macros and eat strategically to accomplish my goals. She made it easy by providing a template for meals, a list of healthy snacks, and advice along the way to help me achieve my goals. I met with Addie for 8 months. During that time, I lost 5% body fat, dropped 7 lbs, gained muscle, and noticed significant body composition changes. I learned that body composition is just as important (if not more important) than weight loss.”
