Our Registered Dietitian
Meet Evelyn Cheng, Registered Dietitian & Certified Personal Trainer
Hello there, my name is Evelyn Cheng and I am the Registered Dietitian behind Eatuitive Nutrition Calgary. 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.
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 fulfilment of having a centered and satisfying relationship with food.
I received my five-year bachelor’s degree in nutrition from the University of Alberta, where I spent one year in clinical dietetic internship rotations in hospital, community and clinic settings. Post-degree, I 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 the thriving practice at Eatuitive, I also serve 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.
During my days off, you will find me at the Rocky Mountains rock climbing, hiking or mountain biking.
