Don’t let food get in the way of what matters!
Today my guest is Kait Fortunato, a registered dietitian in private practice in the DC Metro Area. She is also an author of 2 workbooks and a national speaker on REBELLING Against Diets. As a REBEL Dietitian, Kait encourages people to rebel against dieting and stop allowing the media to dictate our happiness. She shows clients that diets don’t work – 95% of people will regain the weight in 2-5 years. Kait wants you to eat what you love and still be able to focus on your health and nutrition goals – allowing for flexibility with food and embracing a positive body image.


REBEL stands for:

Resist diets
Eat like a REBEL
Build confidence in your eating
Empower yourself
Live joyfully
