My name is Katrina Detter, and I am a Registered Dietitian in the foothills of North Carolina. I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Loma Linda University in Southern California. Ultimately, my goal is to inspire others to live a better life through a nutritious diet, regular exercise, and an active spiritual life.
I love everything food and fitness related and love finding healthful alternatives to favorite foods. Being a recreational runner, Zumba/Dance Fitness Instructor, and weight lifter, I love finding fun ways to stay fit. I also love recipe development and hope to create and publish my own cookbook someday.
When I was a young girl, I found my passion for nutrition having struggled with body image issues–you can read about my story here .
As a teenager, I tried several fad diets and trends to help overcome my body image issues…I wanted so terribly to be like everybody else my age–thin and cute! It was not until I made a true lifestyle change (physically, mentally, and spiritually) that I became happy with myself, and I want to share that with all of you! It is so important to take care of your body for multiple reasons–not just to look good. Yes, I still struggle with it body image now, but I have healthy wellness principles to help me stay on track with body positive-outlook and a healthy body. I want to share wellness tips and tricks with all of you to help encourage healthy, well-rounded lifestyles.
I love spending time with my wonderful husband, Bobby, our kitties, Tikki and Garbanzo (Banzo for short). 🙂 In our spare time, we love to go on hikes, try new restaurants, and work out together.
My blogs are based on my views through my own personal research and professional education. It is important to know that the nutrition field is very controversial and many of us view differently on topics, but I urge you all to keep an open mind while reading articles and literature–and always look for reputable sources. I am a registered dietitian because I have a passion for nutrition and wellness, and I want to inspire others to live a healthy life.
