ABOUT THE COMPOSITION DIETITIAN
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.
I can actually tell that my eating habits have slowly changed. My tastes have changed. I’ve become able to appropriately recognize and respond to hunger, fuel myself, and still enjoy foods that I like without overdoing it and hating myself for it. I’ve gone from never doing a pull-up to being able to do several, consecutively. But I think the success I’m proudest of is that, with Addie’s help, I’ve been able to do this in a way that, ultimately, will be sustainable- as long as I continue to practice what I’ve learned.
First, we will schedule a quick intake call so I can learn about your history and goals. I'll help you decide which package is most in line with your goals, and we'll take it from there!
