FEELGOODEATS NUTRITION by Aida Sadeghi
A Unique Philosophy
Aida Sadeghi, MS, CNS, Nutritionist, is dedicated to good nutrition and health. During her past experience working as a medical assistant, she witnessed first hand the toll poor nutrition can take on a person's health. With a family history of high cholesterol, she experienced that at a young age her genetics and poor food habits were already taking its toll on her own health. This motivated her to continue to higher education and pursue a master's degree in Nutrition Education from American University. After the completion of her graduate degree, she continued on to pursue her CNS credential to provide a high standard of care with an evidence-based approach to nutrition therapy.
With this knowledge, Aida hopes to educate and support clients on a journey to better health through good nutrition that is balanced and sustainable as part of an improved lifestyle. She is passionate about food and fitness. Some of her interests include baking, cooking, dancing, running, taking in the sun at the beach and travelling.
The main force behind FeelGoodEats Nutrition is a deep desire to help individuals achieve their long-term diet and nutrition goals. Whether you’re seeking help with weight loss, sports nutrition, or disease prevention, each client is individually evaluated by a professional Nutritionist and provided with a well-researched and comprehensive plan they can follow for the rest of their lives.
To achieve a balanced relationship with food, you eat what's mostly good for you and also what also makes you feel good. When you can achieve this balance, not only will you feel less guilt about what you eat, but you will feel more energized and satisfied. Finding that path to a perfect balance of food as fuel and feeling good about what you eat will be unique to each individual. Every person's journey and balance will be unique to them. It's a journey that takes time, patience, experimenting and learning. Aida’s role is to support you and guide you with her knowledge and experience in navigating this complicated journey, so that you can eat well and feel good.
The Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS) credential is the only nationally recognized and regarded credential available to nutritionists that holds professionals to a similar standard as RD/RDN (Registered Dietician/Registered Dietician Nutritionist) requirements. The CNS certification is fully accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) which distinguishes the CNS for its robust and reliable process for development, implementation, maintenance and governance of the certification. To obtain a CNS, one must complete at least a master's of science in the field of nutrition, which includes coursework in biology, biochemistry, microbiology, human anatomy, and human physiology. It also requires completion of 1,000 hours of supervised field experience and passing a rigorous comprehensive exam.
In order to maintain a high standard of care and a evidence-based approach to nutrition, Aida has worked diligently toward meeting requirements for the CNS credential and successfully completing her examination. As of October 2019, Aida is now credentialed as a Certified Nutrition Specialist®.
Practicing nutrition is a science and should be treated as such.
