Tailored nutrition designed for YOUR needs, lifestyle, medical conditions, and goals!

Hi! I'm Shelby Burns, a registered dietitian and certified personal trainer in Boston, MA. I am passionate about the power of food, the joy it can bring, and what it can do to help us heal from disease, to perform, and to feel our best. With over a decade of experience working and treating a variety of health conditions, my goal is to provide evidence-based support and education. With so much nutrition misinformation out there, things can certainly get a bit overwhelming! That is why my approach is grounded in science with a focus on the positive, simple things! Working together, we will achieve your best health.

Using a therapeutic approach to nutrition counseling, I tailor my treatment approach for each client’s unique needs.

Listen up: The key to real health and wellness, and living a life well-nourished, is to start by eating thoughtfully, listening to what your body wants and needs, and in turn developing a healthy relationship with food. A healthy relationship with food moves beyond weight loss, weight gain, fat loss, and beyond fitting into an ideal. It is a means through which we can attain and sustain and in term allow our bodies to DO more! Yes- life is about compromise and we can't eat chocolate cake and brownies for every meal (I wish!) if we want to preserve our health. We are not meant to be overly gluttonous all of the time, but we also aren't meant to constantly deprive ourselves either. There is a space for BALANCE and all foods CAN and SHOULD fit!

My Approach: With a focus primarily on weight loss and gut health, my counseling style is highly personalized and I prefer to take an active partnering approach with each of my clients. No matter where you are on your journey, I am dedicated to providing you with education and support for sustainable lifestyle changes to improve your health.

  • Boston, Massachusetts, United States

I DO accept insurance! BCBS of MA! I am also licensed in a variety of states! While I may not always be "in-network," I am a medical nutrition therapy provider & can give you a “superbill receipt” after you pay. You can send that receipt to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. I recommend calling your insurance company before the session and asking, "do you cover medical nutrition therapy sessions with a registered dietitian?” 
Costs are variable depending on package purchased and/or insurance. Remember though- this is information that will last a lifetime. You are investing in your health and change takes time. You will forever be changed & have new habits in place and walk away with a wealth of knowledge I promise!
After our initial session together, you will have a realistic action plan to start working on right away. We will then book follow-up sessions in order to assist with accountable, track progress together & problem solve any real life issues and challenges that may arise. Rest assured, I will assist you in implementing a food plan, possible supplements, and lifestyle shifts that work just for YOU!
