Lindsay Stenovec, MS, RD, CEDRD-S, CLEC
OWNER & PRINCIPAL REGISTERED DIETITIAN
Hello! I’m Lindsay Stenovec and I’m the Principal Registered Dietitian and owner of Nutrition Instincts® San Diego Nutrition Therapy. My team and I provide nutrition counseling in the areas of eating disorders, intuitive eating, prenatal and postpartum wellness, diabetes, family feeding coaching and integrative and functional nutrition. We run a weight inclusive practice in alignment with Health at Every Size® principles. As Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitians (CEDRD) and Intuitive Eating Counselor I strive to provide San Diego residents with evidence-informed, weight inclusive care for those suffering from eating disorders and various levels of disordered eating due to dieting. In 2015, I founded an online nutrition resource and coaching program for moms, which includes a body positive podcast, Embodied and Well Mom Show, and a wellness membership that cultivates body confidence, self-care and a healthy relationship with food for moms and families. I received my undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Science at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, completed my dietetic internship at California State University, Long Beach and completed my Master’s in Science degree in Nutritional Science at San Diego State University.
I speak regularly to professionals and parents on the topics of eating disorders, intuitive eating, child feeding, maternal self-care, pregnancy and eating disorders, and postpartum wellness. As an approved supervisor (CEDRD-S) with the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp), I offer professional supervision to Registered Dietitians and perinatal professionals.
My previous roles that continue to inform my current work included providing medical nutrition therapy for gestational diabetes, consulting for the government Head Start Preschool Program, teaching as an adjunct professor at a community college and being the lead dietitian for a PHP and IOP adult and adolescent eating disorder program. I provide trauma-informed care and have counseling training in motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy – which are therapy modalities I apply while remaining within a dietitian’s scope of practice. I thoroughly enjoy living in San Diego with my husband and 2 wonderful sons.
