About Bonnie R. Giller
Bonnie R. Giller helps chronic dieters and emotional eaters, and people with medical conditions like diabetes, break free of the pain of dieting and get the healthy body and life they love. She does this by creating a tailored solution that combines three essential ingredients: a healthy mindset, caring support and nutrition education. The result is they make peace with food, enjoy guilt-free eating, and live a healthy symptom-free life.
Bonnie is a Registered and Certified Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Educator and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. She has her Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition. She has worked in medical nutrition therapy and counseling for over 30 years.
Bonnie provides medical nutrition therapy for individuals with disease-related therapeutic needs ranging from diabetes and cardiovascular disease to various gastrointestinal conditions. She does this through her Nutrition & Lifestyle Coaching Program, a Diabetes Management Program, and a Low FODMAP Meal Planning Program for those suffering with irritable bowel syndrome. All nutrition programs are tailored to each individual patient and client’s needs, lifestyle, and food preferences.
In addition, Bonnie works with clients on changing their relationship with food and their body. Using her signature Freedom to Eat Forever™ 5 Step Intuitive Eating System, Bonnie helps her clients support and honor their mind and body. She is very passionate about helping her clients regain the trust in themselves and their bodies so they can shift away from a diet mentality and learn to listen to their inner hunger and fullness signals. She is known for providing caring support and motivation as her clients reacquaint themselves with their inner wisdom. Bonnie’s goal is to instill an inclusive view of food by using the principles of intuitive eating to help her clients construct healthy habits and create behavior change, rather than simply dieting to lose weight.
