About the Dietitian

Savannah Thaler, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Hi! I’m Savannah. I’m a non-diet dietitian. I coach clients through discovering the confidence, joy and freedom that comes from practicing daily habits which breed wellness for the mind, body and soul.

“I believe that truly feeling good every day comes from loving yourself. I believe that food is meant to nourish, satisfy and provide enjoyment, and should never be a source of stress or negativity. I believe you are capable of a lifestyle that breeds energy and gratitude, one that allows for wellness and complete freedom from dieting to coexist in a way our diet-obsessed culture has always deemed impossible.”

Do you spend hours in a day worrying about what you’re eating, when you’re going to exercise or how you look?

Are you feeling trapped in your own head, constantly planning out meals and fitness plans to achieve x pounds of weight loss?

Have you tried every diet under the sun and found yourself still frustrated that nothing “works” long-term and definitely doesn’t allow you to enjoy all the foods you love, in whatever quantities your body needs?

Did you think a certain number on the scale or size in clothing was going to bring you happiness and contentment? What about your daily life on the way towards those goals- was it enjoyable, rich and full of goodness, as life should be?

Here at Savvy Wellness…

I value delicious food that tastes good AND makes you feel good. I coach you through learning mindful and intuitive eating. The resulting eating habits will leave you physically, mentally and emotionally nourished based on what your body needs and desires day-by-day.

I value movement that feels right to your body and leaves you energized rather than drained. I help you pinpoint the types of physical activity that work best for you, forgetting the hateful, dreaded exercise regimens of your past and rediscovering your love of movement that works for YOU.

I value your individuality– the specific qualities and strengths that make you amazing and beautiful and perfect just as you are! Working one-on-one, we’re able to discover and devise completely customized wellness strategies, no two people will have the same wellness practices!

I value your goals and dreams– goal setting is not the enemy. Do you want to run a half marathon? Do you want to learn to cook better foods at home? Do you want to develop a daily yoga practice, or just incorporate more pleasure reading in your free time? Whatever it is you picture in your ideal life, I help you craft daily practices that allow you to achieve the good you desire for yourself.
