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
- 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)
- 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
