LISE-ANDRÉE MASSÉ – Nutritionist Dt. P
Nutritionist/Dietitian member of the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ).
I was born on November 16, 1982, in Val-d’Or, Abitibi. When I was 17, I decided to move to Montreal to pursue art studies. At this point, I started to develop an eating disorder that led me to seek psychological help, and to consult a nutritionist. Along the journey to recovery, I came to the conclusion that I also wanted to make a difference. Soon I was moving to Ottawa to complete a bachelor’s degree in nutrition.
While working in hospitals and CLSCs, I provided services to a wide array of patients. However, I only felt alive once in the private sector, working with people experiencing eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, hyperphagia, bigorexia, orthorexia, obesity, body esteem disorder and unhealthy relationship with food). I strongly believe that recovery from eating disorders is possible, and I hope that weight loss can stop being a matter of dieting and quitting the foods we love. I know for a fact that restriction leads to excess, and that life is more beautiful when we learn to love and respect ourselves.
AUCUN ALIMENT NE FAIT GROSSIR
Whether you live with an eating disorder or not, if you no longer know which foods to choose and are uncomfortable in your body, I am here to help you.
Eating should be simple and enjoyable, not a source of guilt or constant headaches. The key is to find a balance between listening to your hunger and satiety signals, and to understand why eating became a source of comfort or stress for you.
The path is long and unfortunately uncommon. Our society values diets and food monitoring. We praise weight loss and healthy eating habits, but we totally forget the pleasure that can be found in salty, sweet or fatty foods. In my opinion, this is utter nonsense.
I will guide you through this path, which I believe is the only one that will allow you to return to a natural and healthy weight, and to embrace a diet that will not only work for you, but also bring you joy! Cravings won’t make you gain weight. They may even make you lose some…
This first appointment lasts 1 hour.
The aim is to evaluate your nutritional status and to see if there are any deficiencies, excesses or imbalances in your diet. The purpose is also to answer your questions, and to understand the nature of your problem and the goals you want to set.
During this appointment, we will review your health history, as well as your family and social background. Naturally, we will talk about your weight and how you feel about it. In order to get an initial picture of your nutritional status, I will also be asking questions about your eating habits.
Afterwards, I will provide you with a report on this evaluation, along with some tips to get you started on achieving your goals.
I want to help you. Every assessment I conduct is individually tailored. Therefore, my first objective is to get to know you in order to establish a relationship of trust and to better understand what your situation is.
Duration: 30 or 50 minutes
Both the number of follow-ups and their frequency will vary according to your needs. We will address this together.
