Evelyn Cheng, BSc RD
Hello there! My name is Evelyn Cheng and I have been a Calgary local for over 14 years. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Personal Trainer and founder of Eatuitive Nutrition.
I believe that everyone can benefit from formal dietitian counselling. The same philosophies that help elite athletes achieve optimal performance can be applied to our full, urban lifestyles. Whether I am working with athletes on a sports nutrition program or helping busy, working professionals tune into their natural hunger and satiety rhythms, my approach to nutrition is grounded in a mindful approach to food.
Grounded in the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I specialize in helping people rediscover the joy and fulfillment of a healthy and satisfying relationship with both food and movement. I believe that there is one key missing ingredient to true, sustainable and long-lasting behavioural change: the mindset.
At Eatuitive Nutrition, we start our nutrition programs with resting metabolic rate and body composition testing, rooted in proven scientific methodologies. We consider nutrition needs that are personal to each individual, applying the science of nutrition, because there is no one-size-fits-all in health. Through a non-diet, intuitive eating approach, clients become healthier and happier by rediscovering the fulfillment of having a centered and satisfying relationship with food.
Evelyn received her five-year bachelor’s degree in nutrition from the University of Alberta, where she spent one year in clinical dietetic internship rotations in hospital, community and clinic settings. Post-degree, she also received the Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from the University of Calgary to better understand how and why people eat, as well as maintaining the ACSM certified personal trainer designation to involve movement for health.
Outside of her consulting practice, Evelyn also serves as the dietitian workshop facilitator for exercise programs at the University of Calgary Department of Kinesiology. She is a regulated member of the College of Dietitians of Alberta, Dietitians of Canada, and an executive member of the Canadian Obesity Network, Calgary Chapter.
When not working, you will find Evelyn at the Rocky Mountains either climbing the local crag, hiking a scenic trail or mountain biking.
