Professional statement

Liz Fayram is a registered dietitian and nutrition therapist specializing in eating disorders, non-diet approaches to wellness, transitions in eating, and making peace with food. Liz practices an Intuitive Eating® and Health At Every Size (HAES)® model to develop a supportive, out-of-the-box and sustainable nutrition path with her clients.

Liz discovered her passion for nutrition and wellness while cooking with her family, taking culinary courses, and participating in athletics. She believes that all foods can nourish the body when in balance, and has passionately dedicated her career to helping others find peace and enjoyment in their relationship with food.

Liz received her BS from Bastyr University's Didactic Program in Dietetics and has extensive experience with eating disorder patients at Cambridge Eating Disorder Center, Metrowest Nutrition, and Simmons College. She is a professional member of the Association for Size Diversity & Health (ASDAH) and a board member of the Rhode Island chapter of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP). She brings enthusiasm, warmth, and evidence-based practice into the counseling process to help her clients heal.


Message to clients

As a nutritionist and a woman in this culture, I can empathize with the many people who have struggled with food and their body. It is a life mission of mine to help people reconnect and heal those hurts, and to help them grow those experiences into something they can honor their whole life.
