Keyona Bragg

Hi, I'm Keyona Bragg!

I am a Registered Dietitian here at Summit Physiotherapy + Wellness.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from the University of Alberta in 2015 and have been working in Central Alberta since 2016. I fell in love with food and cooking at a very young age and can often be found trying new recipes in the kitchen with my colleague Jessica (often these recipes include using vegetable protein sources!). 

I use an evidence informed approach to nutrition education and love helping clients eat more foods they enjoy without guilt & encouraging movement in ways they enjoy. Along with being a dietitian, I own and operate a body inclusive fitness studio in Red Deer and have been in a fitness educator role for over 15 years. 

I am passionate about helping others find positivity, self-compassion and kindness towards their body image, eating experience, and relationship to food and movement. I strive to create a holistic approach to nutrition and believe that every person is the expert of their own body and eating experience! Through my expertise and evidence-based knowledge, I can guide people to find a satisfying, nourishing and non-judgemental relationship with their food and nutrition.

I use a collaborative approach to provide nutrition counselling that is:

  • Inclusive of ALL bodies
  • Body positive
  • Weight-neutral
  • Guided by the Intuitive Eating Principles from Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole
  • Based in Mindful Eating concepts

This means no weighing, no numbers, and no meal plans. 

I work with clients on a variety of different nutrition topics including: 

  • Intuitive Eating/Mindful Eating
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)/FODMAP
  • Chronic Disease Prevention (Heart health, diabetes)
  • Eating on the Go/Shift Work
  • Aging Nutrition (Bone health, menopause)
  • Prenatal/Postnatal
  • PCOS
  • General Healthy Eating
  • Managing dysphagia or texture modification
  • Sports Nutrition (fueling for activity, recovery and group education)
  • Grocery store tours (label reading, eating on a budget)
  • Cooking workshops, tips and recipe modifications & analysis
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Malnutrition & nutrient deficiencies
