Dietitians collaborate to create a menu of nourishing Intuitive Eating group programs

It all started with a love of interesting books and delicious food.

The Nourish series of Intuitive Eating Programs were founded by both Down to Earth Nutrition and Nutrition at Your Core.

Down to Earth Nutrition is owned and operated by Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor Cristina Luibil, MS, RD, LDN (right).

Nutrition at Your Core, LLC is owned and operated by Registered Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor Samantha Nuzio, MS, RD (left).

Get to know Cristina and Sam below.

We met at Rutgers in 2008 where we started our path to become dietitians. Over the years we’ve kept in touch, and through our passion for a non-diet approach to nutrition we’ve outlined these programs to support others in a way we wished that we had been supported.

Cristina: My love of food and exercise encouraged me to pursue a career as a Registered Dietitian, and my years of worry and guilt of “did I do enough?!” led me to a non-diet focused private practice, where I truly feel fulfilled.

I have supported the nutrition goals of people from all walks of life, from a public health program, to educating and mentoring students and future dietitians. Early on in my career as a dietitian, I opened Down to Earth Nutrition, where my goal is to support you on your own journey of sustainable nutrition and lifelong wellness. I am excited to get to know you through our programs!

Sam: From chronic dieter dietitian to a food freedom focus, I have had experience on both sides of the spectrum and everywhere in between in the last 8 years as a Registered Dietitian. I have worked in the hospital setting, as a supermarket dietitian and in corporate wellness.

In 2019, I opened Nutrition at Your Core to reach more people and help them to live their best life! The empowering freedom that intuitive eating has brought me is something I want to be able to share with the world. I can’t wait to share my experiences and expertise with you!

The Nourish series starts with Nourish Your Body, which is an intro to Intuitive Eating and Self-Compassion group program. It uses The IE Workbook for guided modules, independent work, and live zoom discussions. It is best suited for beginners to Intuitive Eating, or those identifying as beginners.

Nourish Your Life comes next, which is where Nourish Your Body "alumni" can continue their journey with a safe and comfortable community to explore Intuitive Eating and reject diet culture. This program explores every day "diet mentality" scenarios and how using intuitive eating principles can ease the burden of those conversations and situations.

Finally, we have Nourish Your Mind, our first venture together, which is a non-diet bookclub.

Though Sam and Cristina don't collaborate as regularly as before, Cristina has brought the Nourish series to Down to Earth Nutrition, and Sam always has a reserved spot to pop in as an expert dietitian in our space.
