TREAT YOUR BODY RIGHT
Eat real food to get healthy
Did you know that you can improve your health and gain more energy by eating the right foods? What we put into our bodies is one of the most important ways to gain control over and manage our own health, and nutritious foods can be supportive and healing when it comes to our health. My approach is to work with you to determine what works best for you and your needs. Whether you have a health condition such as an autoimmune disorder, hypo- or hyperthyroid, diabetes, or simply want to gain control over your health, I can provide guidance in helping you make the right nutrition choices. In your sessions we collaborate not only on food plans, but on lifestyle choices that involve reducing stress and gaining energy to help you live the best life you can. Make the decision to treat your body right - you deserve it!

Integrative Nutrition in Maryland
Hi! I’m Carla Hunnicutt, a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Licensed Dietitian-Nutritionist located in the Annapolis area. My philosophy is that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to eating; each person’s physiology is different, and what works well for one person may not work well for another. I don’t believe in fad diets, but in helping you maintain a positive relationship with nutrition in a way that’s fun and stress-free. Although I think of food as medicine, I'm a southern girl at heart and I love comfort foods, being originally from Georgia. I grew up eating scrumptious vegetables from my grandparents' garden: my grandma's collard greens, tomatoes, cabbage and so much more. I can help you find a way to make nutrient-dense whole foods delicious AND easy to prepare. If you're looking to lose weight, improve a specific health condition, or just learn how to eat healthier, I'm here for you. With a Master of Science in Nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health, I've supported clients through weight loss, osteoporosis, menopause, enlarged prostate, liver disease, and cancer, to name a few. Currently I'm accepting a limited number of clients to work with remotely, so contact me today to set up an appointment!
WHAT FOODS SHOULD YOU EAT?
Just say no to fad diets!
Not sure what the right foods are to eat? Today we are constantly bombarded with conflicting messages: one day eggs are healthy, another day they’re not, one day low-fat is the answer and the next it’s all about keto, the list goes on. But here’s the thing: determining what foods to eat depends entirely on the individual. That’s what holistic, integrative nutrition is all about. Sure, there are some things we all want to avoid or minimize, like trans fats and ultraprocessed foods. And for the most part, if it comes from the ground, or if you can get it from a farm, it’s safe and healthy to eat – provided you don’t have an allergy, digestive disorder, or compromised immune system. But to figure out what’s truly healthy depends on you and your body, and not on whatever bandwagon the rest of the world jumps on. I don’t focus on dieting, but rather on making lifestyle changes that will be feasible for YOU. It doesn’t happen overnight! Sometimes we have to take baby steps. But once you start to see the dramatic difference even just one small change can make in your life, you’ll become more motivated to eat nutrient-dense foods that make you feel better and improve your quality of life.
