Bethany Wheeler, MS, RD, LD is a dietitian specializing in eating disorders, body image and sports nutrition through social and health justice lenses and whose practice philosophies include Health at Every Size (R), weight inclusivity, body autonomy and self-compassion. She is also the owner of B. Wheeler Nutrition, LLC in Sandy Springs, Ga. Bethany believes diversity is valuable and that all forms of diversity (size, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ability, immigration status, age, class, etc) need to be recognized and honored. Bethany holds a BS in Dietetics and a MS in Applied Exercise and Health Science. Prior to opening her practice, she worked at Kennesaw State University where she was a founding member of their eating disorder treatment team and provided outpatient nutrition therapy for students including NCAA and club level athletes. She is currently a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), Eating Disorder Registered Dietitians and Professionals (EDRDPRO) and the International Federation of Eating Disorder Dietitians (IFEDD).

After our conversation Bethany wanted to add the following:

I did not mention during our conversations some of the amazing humans (some are health providers and some are not) who have put forth the emotional labor so that I could learn and do my own work. Could you mention this and provide a list in the show notes? They deserve the credit! I also think this list might be a helpful resource for any listeners who are looking to do this work as well.
