Are you ready to stop dieting and start living?

Hi there,

I’m Alissa Rumsey, MS, RD.

I’m a registered dietitian, certified intuitive eating counselor, food and body liberation coach, and the author of Unapologetic Eating.

I help people get free of the shame and pain of chronic dieting so they can live their most unapologetic, liberated lives.

My team and I offer virtual intuitive eating and non-diet nutrition coaching, group programs, and online courses to help you make peace with food and your body.

I also provide business coaching and supervision to dietitians and clinicians.

Intuitive Eating Coaching:

Get In Touch

Get started with a free phone consultation, where I learn more about you, your goals, and how we can help support you. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and we'll figure out which dietitian is the best fit for you.

*If you're ready to get started, you can skip the discovery call and sign up for a package.

Initial Session

In your first session, we’ll spend 75 minutes together and do a deep dive to really get to know you. We’ll explore your relationship and history with food and body image, your current eating patterns, and discuss your goals and what success looks like for you.

Ongoing Support

Healing your food and body issues is deep, brave, and oftentimes scary work. We offer package-based options that include video, phone and email support so that we have enough time to spend together to be able to work through everything that comes up.

“Alissa helped me through some difficult times in the process and handled my fears, questions, and uncertainties with words of wisdom and no judgment. I loved the way we navigated every step of the process together."


AR - Testimonials_Califia

“I read so many books on intuitive eating, emotional eating, and mindful eating, but I still couldn’t figure out how to make any of it work in my actual daily life. Working with Alissa was truly a transformative experience. Alissa is extremely compassionate and knows exactly what questions to ask and how to gently push you in the direction of slow, steady progress.”


AR - Testimonials_Diane

“For the first time in my life, I’m eating what I want to eat and not binging. For the first time in my life, I am working out because of how it makes my body feel. For the first time in my life, I’m not angry at myself when I go to bed. For the first time in my life, I am a nice person to myself! I owe so much of that to Alissa.”


AR - Testimonials_Jill

“Working with Alissa was the best decision I could have made for myself and for my future. It has allowed me to truly enjoy life and focus on other things beside body size and food. I no longer binge eat, I have better self-confidence and internal body awareness, and my stress levels are significantly lower.”

Check out my book:

Unapologetic Eating

I wrote this book to encourage you to think outside of the arbitrary boxes that society has put you in so that you can find - and trust - who you really are deep inside.

Using food as the entry point, my book helps you explore more about yourself, your beliefs, your values, and what you truly want out of life so that you can find freedom and liberation, unapologetically.

Combining concepts of intuitive eating, body image work, mindfulness, self-compassion, somatic and embodiment work, and more - Unapologetic Eating will help you get free.

AR - Testimonials_Kelly D

“This book delivers way more than it promises: it’s actually a guide to life and liberation, one bite at a time.”

AR - Testimonials_Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones

Fiona sutherland

“This is exactly the book that we need to take us from “huh?” to “aahhhh!” when it comes to navigating our relationship with food, eating, and our body. In Unapologetic Eating, Alissa has done a brilliant job of supporting us to unpack the suitcase, take a compassionate and curious look around, then re-pack it in ways that make sense to US. This will be a go-to on my bookshelf for sure.”

Actually, Eating Can Be Easy

(and Pleasurable)

When we stop being bossed around by diet culture, we often don’t know what to eat. My Gentle Nutrition Cookbook is full of delicious recipes and prompts that can help you reclaim the joy of cooking (and eating), unapologetically.

You don’t have to take up less space to be loved and respected

And the truth is, the more time we spend trying to fix ourselves, the less time we have for our dreams, our relationships, our careers, and our lives.

You are not broken.You deserve to feel worthy in your body.You’re allowed to eat.You’re allowed to be you.Right now, and always.

Let’s live & eat unapologetically.
