Finally, an alternative to traditional weight loss counselling.
No Green Smoothies is a weight neutral, Health At Every Size ® and non-diet aligned private practice.
No Green Smoothies was born out of a need to question what the mainstream was selling with respect to health and wellness.
“Health” has come to mean a very narrow definition and “wellness” really only means one thing… restriction.
The health industry has pivoted away from dieting and towards the pursue of wellness – complete with female empowerment vibes and feelings of belonging to the tribe.
What the health industry is actually buying into, however, is diet culture 2.0 – a more disordered and extreme version sold under the guise of “wellness.”
No Green Smoothies is about critically challenging these ideals and guiding people towards their own version of good health and good nutrition.
Courtney is a Nutritionist, Dietitian and the face of No Green Smoothies.
Courtney was training to be a Dietitian when she saw the wellness industry for what it was – a churning machine of orthorexia and disordered eating. No Green Smoothies’ original purpose was to challenge these ideals and show people that there is a better way.
At the same time, Courtney was questioning some of the more traditional aspects of her training -how to treat bodies of all shapes and sizes with the respect and dignity that they deserve. Unsatisfied with woeful weight loss statistics and horror stories of weight stigma, shame and discrimination, Courtney set out to do things differently. She discovered Health At Every Size ® and the Non-Diet Approach and hasn’t looked back since.
No Green Smoothies is now a thriving private practice in South East Melbourne that specializes in chronic dieting recovery and eating disorder treatment.
