Who is Kristen? Learn more about your new English Speaking Nutritionist in Germany

Born and raised in the United States, I always longed for adventure. From a young age, I had a love for traveling and learning from people of different cultures.

In September 2021, my husband, our cat, and I made the move to Hamburg, Germany. The goal was to have a change of scenery, seek adventure, and discover a new way of living. After almost 2 years of living in Hamburg, we couldn't be happier with this move!

Professionally, I am a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Licensed Dietitian-Nutritionist (LDN) in the state of Pennsylvania. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Human Nutrition.

To be a credentialed Registered Dietitian, I completed 1200 hours of supervised practice. Most of my prior working experience has been in children's and adult hospitals conducting research and seeing 1:1 clients. Even though I have been trained in general nutrition counseling, my passion lies in supporting people through eating disorder recovery.

Where do I find my passion for nutrition counseling?

After completing my studies, I jumped into the clinical dietitian world. I worked as a Clinical Registered Dietitian at The Renfrew Center in Philadelphia. Here, I worked with young adults struggling with eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, avoidant-restrictive food intake disorder, and other related eating concerns). This is where I found my passion to educate about the Intuitive Eating (IE) and Health At Every Size (HAES) frameworks and continue working as an eating disorder nutritionist in Germany.

In today’s society, we are flooded with new information, expectations on how our bodies should look, and opinions on how we should eat. Every day, you hear a new nutrition tip or a new fad diet. Instagram influencers, celebrities, and other non-credible sources promote these nutrition "tips" on social media for you to consume.

I became a Registered Dietitian to be a credible source for you! At Kristen Kiesow Nutrition, you will learn real, no-nonsense nutrition knowledge to support you in your daily life.

What is my Nutrition Philosophy?

I have 4 core values that guide my overall nutrition philosophy:

1) Weight Inclusivity

Using the Health At Every Size (HAES) framework, research proves health can be achieved at any weight or size. During our sessions, your weight will not be the main focus. Instead, we will focus on your lifestyle, your core beliefs about food, thoughts about body image, and intuitive eating education. The goal is to connect with your body again!

2) Client Centered

No one is ever “one size fits all” – and neither are my nutrition recommendations! Most diets are not individualized, which is why they are not sustainable. Eating behavior and mental health are closely tied. In our sessions, we can discuss your current life, your motivation to change, and your food preferences to find solutions that fit you.

3) Anti-Diet Approach

Following a restrictive diet does not work. You will not achieve sustainable results by following a diet! I have the nutrition philosophy that “all foods fit” in a balanced. You will not need to remove foods you enjoy eating in order to achieve realistic results. Eating without judgment is possible!

4) Evidence-Based

As a nutritionist and Registered Dietitian, I stay continuously up-to-date on modern research to support clients. I am committed to continuous education and learning to provide you with evidence-based recommendations. Your health is important and your body deserves care – seeing a professional dietitian can help you achieve your goals!

Intuitive Eating Education & General Nutrition Counseling for Chronic Conditions

If you are tired of dieting and want to find a sustainable way of eating, the intuitive eating path might be for you! Guided by the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating, we can explore your beliefs about food, hunger/fullness cues, your relationship with food, and educate on healthful eating. You deserve to make conscious, intentional decisions about your health.
