Welcome to Forward Nutrition

Do you remember when…

You ate because you were hungry

You ate because the food tasted or smelled good

Eating was part of an enjoyable social activity

Eating wasn’t stressful

Food and/or body image didn’t consume your thoughts


Are you ready for that again?

Stephanie Willard, MS, RD

Hello! I’m Stephanie Willard, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

By working through a non-diet, Health at Every Size® lens, I hope to inspire self-compassion and connection. You are not alone! I am here to guide you toward a healthier and happier relationship with food and your body.

I encourage starting NOW with small changes that empower you rather than waiting for the “right” moment to make drastic changes. If you struggle with an eating disorder, a small step might be keeping this tab open, or requesting an appointment. I’m ready when you are!


Forward Nutrition specializes in working with adolescents and adults who need help treating their eating disorders, disordered eating, chronic dieting, and/or body-image concerns.

& Health Blog

I use this blog to explore topics of interest like body image and ways to focus on health instead of focusing on a number (body weight).
