Simone specializes in Sports Nutrition and Adolescent – Teen Eating Disorders.
“I'm an anti-diet and intuitive eating dietitian because I personally struggled as an athlete with eating disorders and diet culture! I missed out on many things because of dieting, and this inspires me every day to show others they don’t have to miss out on things in life either!”
Simone is a sports nutritionist who works with athletes of all ages and abilities, from recreational to elite. She brings with her experience working with teens and adolescents as an eating disorder specialist who has worked at Clementine Eating Disorder Treatment Center in Briarcliff Manor, NY. Simone believes strongly in the Health at Every Size® approach and works with our clients virtually from her office in Texas!
What Simone loves about being a registered dietitian who specializes in sports nutrition and eating disorder recovery is that she helps people learn what works for their bodies to be healthy and confident, as well as learning that nutrition is more than just basic food skills - it can be incorporated into medical nutrition therapy, performance, and lifestyle.
Before Simone got into the field of dietetics, she struggled with the diet culture belief that being “skinny” would lead to happiness. When that didn’t work out (because rarely does it work!) Simone knew her goals needed to change. She wanted to be STRONG, FIT, HEALTHY, and HAPPY! She did research on nutrition and exercise which helped change her life for the better! She helped family and friends learn why fad diets didn’t work, became a certified personal trainer, and created and managed her own fitness business, Simone Ashley Fitness. This was also when Simone started her journey to becoming a Registered Dietitian!
