A Unique Philosophy

Rediscover Nutrition was founded by Sam Finkelstein -- a weight-neutral and anti-diet Registered Dietitian Nutritionist currently serving the San Francisco Bay Area, and others remotely. Sam believes in evidence-based research. Today, research supports that dieting in any form is ineffective, and does more harm than good to our physical bodies, our emotional wellness, and our body image. Sam has helped countless individuals reclaim their relationships to food and their bodies, and has guided people back to finding joy in their eating, escaping the exhaustion and stress that comes with extreme forms of eating. Sam's work is driven by her firm belief that we all deserve to have a positive relationship with our food and our bodies. Sam's past clients have ranged from those with diagnosed eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, to individuals who are simply done with dieting, and ready to find a flexible relationship to food that is both stress-free, and shame-free. Sam no longer works one-on-one with folks in private practice, but continues to serve the anti-diet community through other services. If you're interested in working with Sam, visit the Work With Me page to find out how she can help you or your loved ones in your relationship to food. 

Samantha completed her education through California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, and through the Morrison Chartwells Dietetic Internship, affiliated with Compass Group North America.
