Marie-Pier is one of the most positive and compassionate individuals I have ever met. She takes a very realistic and non- restrictive approach to nutrition that leads to a sustainable lifestyle. She truly cares about her clients and will work hard for them so they can achieve positive lifestyle milestones. She also has a fitness background so she understands the healthy balance between nutrition and fitness. I highly recommend Marie-Pier’s services

MP has been helping my daughter. She was diagnosed with anorexia in January. In the 6 months that MP has been seeing her, we have seen HUGE changes in our daughter's relationship with food and how she sees herself. MP is always available to answer questions or guide us. Our daughter is eating again and her health and state of mind have both improved. In tandem with our daughter's psychologist, things have moved forward and our happy and healthy daughter is coming back! I don't know where we would be if we had not stumbled upon MP....I could not ask for anyone better. Our daughter truly sees her as a mentor, a friend and most importantly an integral part if her recovery! Thanks MP!!


Integral part of her recovery!

Marie-Pier is knowledgeable and professional. She makes me feel very welcome and at ease as we talk about my nutrition. Marie-Pier helps balance my diet and set goals for myself, she is easy to work with and I feel as if she truly cares about my health. If you are looking for someone to assist you in a healthier lifestyle, I would recommend The Balanced Dietitian.

Our services are weight neutral which means that we do not use weight as a measure of success.

Some people lose weight, some remain the same and some gain weight. This depends where your body needs to be!

This will depend on your individual needs and goals. For eating disorders or disordered recovery, the average time is 6-8 months. For intuitive eating or building sustainable habits, the average is 3-6 months. The care plan will be created with your needs and capacity in mind.
