"I started working with Amy over 2 years ago after struggling 20+ years with an eating disorder/disordered eating. My relationship with food was taxing, all consuming and exhausting. I wasn't nourishing myself given how active my lifestyle was/is and I was exhausted. I was in a vicious cycle of overeating/splurging and then restricting and over exercising. After confiding in my husband that I was ready for a change, he found the Kindred Nutrition practice and I immediately made an appointment with Amy. Amy was so amazing to work with and just the person I needed to rebuild myself, my relationship with food, and nourish my body. I completely trusted her and gave up control of my food and the scale and followed her advice. I have been working with her for over 2 years now. My life has completely changed. I am so much happier and healthier. I am more confident in myself, my body and what I can do. Amy was amazing and I can't thank her enough for helping me overcome this disorder that I have been struggling with for more than half of my life. But not only did working with Amy help me emotionally and physically, my family has been eating better overall too as now I know how to not only nourish myself but how to cook/nourish for my family. We have all reaped the benefits of Amy and her practice and I look forward to continue working with her."
I brought my daughter to Kindred Nutrition over a year ago to help her recover from Aneroxia Nervousa. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is or has a loved one struggling with an eating disorder. The nutritionists, Amy and Becca, have been so instrumental in helping my daughter get to a safe and healthy weight by educating and supporting her. We travel over eighty miles round trip to my daughter's individual and group appointments because Amy and Becca are so knowledgeable and know how to help not only the person with the eating disorder but the family as well. It is well worth the time, energy and trip to work with
people who can help.
Kindred Nutrition was instrumental and vital during my daughter's recovery from Anorexia Nervosa. Becca and Amy were absolutely wonderful. Becca was very patient and kind at every session even when my daughter was yelling and screaming at her because she didn't want to follow the meal plan. Becca constantly challenged my daughter to incorporate foods that she viewed as "bad" which was key in her recovery. I loved that her treatment plan included not just weekly sessions but also yoga. My daughter loved going to yoga which really helped her relax and clear her mind. I would highly recommend Kindred Nutrition.
After searching all over the DC area for a runner-friendly dietitian, we came across Amy Goldsmith and her company, Kindred Nutrition, approximately five years ago. We invited her to speak to our runners, and we were so impressed with her ability to provide essential advice to improve our runners' performances in a manner that was easy to understand and implement. Thanks to Amy's guidance, we have been able to help hundreds of our runners fuel appropriately while training and racing to achieve their goals. Her deep knowledge of all things nutrition has been invaluable for us as coaches and runners. In addition to being knowledgeable, Amy is approachable, kind, and has a knack for making even the most reluctant client feel comfortable. Lastly, Amy is the real deal with real credentials. She does not sell diet products through an internet pyramid scheme, nor does she believe that people should eliminate entire food groups to lose weight. She is simply the best.
I am a weightlifter/CrossFit athlete and started working with Amy and Kindred Nutrition shortly after having my son 4 years ago. Before working with them I did my best to eat healthy and stayed away from processed foods. Once I started working with Kindred I saw a dramatic change in my body composition and my performance skyrocketed. I had no idea I could feel this good and my body could perform at such a high level. The biggest take away for me was learning how to fuel my body properly and have a positive relationship with food. This is something that I am now passing along to my son to instill healthy habits at a young age. Amy and the Kindred Nutrition team has completed changed my life and I am so thankful for them everyday.
