Marilyn Dahl is a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Nutritionist. Her background and training include traditional and holistic approaches to nutrition and she has worked in residential and outpatient eating disorder treatment settings.
Growing up in Nebraska, Marilyn learned to appreciate food from her Mom, a Registered Dietitian. She enjoyed the best grass-fed beef, chickens from her yard and the freshest vegetables from her mother’s garden. After struggling in other areas of college, mom suggested she try nutrition and found it to be a perfect fit. Like her aunt Marilyn, another Registered Dietitian, it’s really in the genes! She received a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of Nebraska and completed a dietetic internship at Touro Infirmary in New Orleans, Louisiana.
She believes any food can fit and encourages people to eat fresh whole foods, balanced with chocolate. Her counseling specialties include eating disorders, allergies, and gastric bypass surgery preparation.
Her professional affiliations include:
- American Dietetic Association
- Nutritionists in Complimentary Care Practice Group
- Jacksonville Dietetic Association
- International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals
She can help navigate through the confusion that eating and body images can create and believes that a mindful and intuitive approach to eating is possible.
