Empowering Dietitians

1d ago
In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola exposes the striking similarities between diet culture and hustle culture to show how our work at dismantling diet culture is only the beginning. If you've done the work to flag the diet mentality within yourself and/or your patients, learned about the patriarchal, capitalist, and supremacist roots of diet culture, and are passionate about healing your or others' relationships with food and body...maybe it's time to start applying that same work to your ability to reject hustle culture.

In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola sits down to unpack the hold that money has over us as dietitians. It's certainly a hot button topic, with feeling underpaid being a top pain point for many in the field, and an economic climate that is leaving a lot of us feeling, well...scarce and uncertain. Yet despite all of that scarcity, very few dietitians hold wealth or money as a core value. So why, then, does it seem to dominate all of our decisions? And how can we learn to have a more abundant, or secure relationship with money ..read more

In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola hits the record button without any script or notes to share about her recent "brush" with hustle culture -- how she found herself, despite being known amongst dietitians as the one who's "so good at opting out of hustle culture" falling back into that hustle mindset without meaning to. She goes through exactly how she responded to the situation, and emphasizes the importance of vulnerability and detaching from perfection in this work. PLUS, if you catch this when it first releases, there ..read more

In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola wraps up season 3 of the show with a reflection of the year in preparation to look ahead to set goals for 2023. Whether you call them new year's resolutions, intentions, or goals (or maybe even nothing at all because you usually don't set them!!) the very first step is often an overlooked one - and that's reflection. So while November may seem a little early to be chatting through goals, it's actually a fantastic time to take a step back and reflect on how 2022 has been for you. Listen in ..read more

[114] How to Pitch (& Be Pitched To!) Without Being an A**hole
Empowering Dietitians
by Jessica Serdikoff
2M ago
In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola chats through one of the things that she was definitely not taught in school: how to network, pitch, and make requests compassionately and effectively. Because this isn't something we are taught as dietitians, at least not typically in our formal undergrad or internship training, it can feel intimidating, and it can be easy to have our best intentions land...well, not as we intended...with the person we're contacting. So how do we, as dietitians, better build connections and ask for suppor ..read more

[112] Drama within dietetics: weight loss vs weight inclusive care
Empowering Dietitians
by Jessica Serdikoff
3M ago
In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola builds on the conversation from last week's episode (see below if you missed it!) by addressing how we respond to other dietitians who are practicing in a way that we disagree with. While there are many issues in our field that can spike in-fighting, arguing, and out-right bullying, none lately seem quite as divisive as the debate between weight centric (/weight-normative or "pro" weight loss) care vs. weight inclusive care -- and while Jess has discussed these issues periodically on the p ..read more

[111] Why that "dietitian vs nutritionist" Instagram post isn't helping us
Empowering Dietitians
by Jessica Serdikoff
3M ago
In this episode of The Empowering Dietitians Podcast, host and dietitian supervisor Jess Serdikoff Romola addresses one of the biggest frustrations within the profession of dietetics: the sheer number of people who are not dietitians who insist on doling out nutrition advice. While some of this advice is innocuous, and some actually legitimate, a lot of it flies in the face of what we, as dietitians, know to be true and helpful -- yet they're the ones receiving all of the attention and respect instead of us, and it pisses us off, right?? In this episode, Jess shares her potentially surprising ..read more
