Nourish yourself without guilt, shame, or fear

Anti-diet nutrition counseling and lactation support for adults, teens, and families

As seen in:

Ruby Oak Nutrition is a safe space for adults and teenagers to get compassionate nutrition support.

We’re a group of Health at Every Size®-aligned, anti-diet dietitian nutritionists based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

You’re in the right place if:

You’re seeking eating disorder recovery but don’t know where to start.

You’re tired of obsessing about food and your body.

You want pregnancy and postpartum nutrition advice without a side of diet rules and weight shaming.

You’re having trouble breastfeeding and want at-home support.

You’re looking for a path to health that’s affirming and body-positive.

You’re struggling in your relationship wit food, and you need a dietitian who will truly listen to you.


Eating Disorder Nutrition Counseling for Adults

We provide talk nutrition therapy, meal support, meal planning, food exposures, and more. We help you challenge your eating disorder and find full recovery. We can help you navigate the tough transition of coming home from a higher level of care.


Eating Disorder Nutrition Counseling for Teens

We take a family-based treatment approach, which means we support both teenagers and their parents (usually in separate appointments). We provide structure for recovering at home, and can help you transition to or from a higher level of care as needed.


Intuitive Eating Nutrition Counseling

We help you work towards intuitive eating in a way that works for you and considers any health conditions you might have. Clients often come to us to work on things like blood sugar control, high blood pressure, and nutrition during pregnancy, because they love our anti-diet approach.


Lactation, Breastfeeding & Infant Feeding Support

Our lactation consultants (who are also dietitians) come to your home to set you up for success with breastfeeding, and help you work through any challenges you’re having.


Fertility, Pregnancy & Postpartum Nutrition Counseling

We help you navigate nutrition concerns and challenges that might arise during this time — without the weight shaming and diet rules that come with most pregnancy advice.


Our Raleigh dietitian nutritionists offer virtual and in-person nutrition counseling.

We see people in our Downtown Raleigh office, and offer virtual nutrition counseling to clients across North Carolina and many other states. Lactation consulting services take place in your home.

Snickers is right: You’re not you when you’re hungry.

Let us help you be YOU again.

Why our dietitians are different

We’re not like other dietitians. We don’t encourage weight loss, and we won’t put you on a restrictive diet plan. We believe all bodies are good bodies, and our anti-diet nutrition counseling is designed to help you feel nourished, energized, and confident.

We listen. We get to know you. When you tell us about your struggles and challenges, we believe you. Then, we work with you to set goals and support you in reaching them. Our work together might feel challenging at times, but we’re with you every step of the way.

Our mission is to help you — and by you, we mean everyone — leave disordered eating behaviors behind and learn to nourish yourself without guilt, so that you can finally be the vibrant, unique, incredible person you’re meant to be.

We’re proudly in-network with most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans. Many BCBS plans cover unlimited nutrition counseling sessions at no cost to you.

If you have health insurance through another carrier (like Cigna, Aetna, or United Healthcare), we’ll provide super bills to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Many of our clients get reimbursed a significant percentage of what they pay for nutrition counseling.
