WELCOME TO KINDRED NUTRITION

We take the time to listen.

It takes more than fifteen minutes, a vital and weight check, and a BMI calculation to determine or diagnose one’s health. It’s impossible to simply look at someone and assign “macros” for fitness.

That’s why we take the time to ask the right questions. How can someone tell you what to avoid when they haven’t even asked you what you eat? Are you active? Do you have stress in your life? Are you sad? Are you anxious? Is it managed? How do you sleep? All of these questions are key contributors to your current health status.​​​​​​​​​

Sports Nutrition for Adults & Teens

Bring Your A-Game to Your Performance

Amy uses 25 years of experience plus evidence-based science, combined with your training plan and current lifestyle to focus on your nutrition prescription. Your nutrition prescription will focus on peaking sports performance while focusing on recovery. You will receive specific fuel recommendations in the form of exchanges, calories, and/or macronutrients along with timing of meals, hydration, and electrolyte recommendations, all which are important for the athlete.​

Sports Nutrition Testimonials

“I am a weightlifter/CrossFit athlete and started working with Amy shortly after having my son 4 years ago. Before working with her I did my best to eat healthy and stayed away from processed foods. Once I started working with Amy I saw a dramatic change in my body composition and my performance skyrocketed. I had no idea I could feel this good and my body could perform at such a high level.

The biggest take away for me was learning how to fuel my body properly and how to have a positive relationship with food. This is something that I am now passing along to my son to instill healthy habits at a young age. Amy and the Kindred Nutrition team have completely changed my life and I am so thankful for them everyday.”

AJ, Crossfit athlete and client

“After searching all over the DC area for a runner-friendly dietitian, we came across Amy Goldsmith and her company, Kindred Nutrition. We invited her to speak to our runners, and we were so impressed with her ability to provide essential advice to improve our runners’ performances in a manner that was easy to understand and implement.

Thanks to Amy’s guidance, we have been able to help hundreds of our runners fuel appropriately while training and racing to achieve their goals. Her deep knowledge of all things nutrition has been invaluable for us as coaches and runners. In addition to being knowledgeable, Amy is approachable, kind, and has a knack for making even the most reluctant client feel comfortable. Lastly, Amy is the real deal with real credentials. She does not sell diet products through an internet pyramid scheme, nor does she believe that people should eliminate entire food groups to lose weight. She is simply the best.”

JS & LR, Boston Marathon Runners and Running Coaches

“I am a big believer in thanking folks that help me out in life. So I want to send a quick note to say thank you for your help and work with me recently on nutrition and hydration regarding my running and triathlon efforts.”

DF, Runner and client

“Based on what we discussed I have adjusted some things with how I plan out my nutrition and hydration, as well as just taking more rest time to fuel up and let my body recover during my long outings. And I definitely feel much better about it all now and am getting better results from it.”

KC, runner and client

“I just completed my 1st goal of the year, and was able to do a Trail Run Marathon distance event. I took extra time to make sure I was stopping and getting in the food and liquids every 30-40 minutes, and never felt dehydrated or out of energy the whole time. My muscles and body were sore and fatigued, but my energy level didn’t do the dropping off a cliff I usually experienced in the past around the 4-5 hour mark. So I was really happy to see I could make this work.”

DS, Ultrarunner

EATING DISORDER TREATMENT FOR ADULTS & TEENS

Safe and Experienced
Care towards Recovery

At Kindred Nutrition you will be safely monitored by our dietitians who have over 25 years of collective experience in the field of Eating Disorders. Our dietitians lead the medical/clinical side of Eating Disorder treatment by assessing needs and recommending a plan for weight restoration, education, and remission of symptoms. We are able to pair this with the emotional side of eating disorders by understanding your fears, belief systems, desire for control, and body image concerns. As we work to challenge both the medical and emotional side you will gain confidence to let go of the belief system that is hurting you.

Not to sound too dramatic, but had I not found Amy I’m not sure where we would be today. I truly believe people are put in our lives for a reason and I am so thankful we crossed paths with Amy.

Amy met our son when he was very sick, a shell of who he once was. She met him where he was and worked hard to build a relationship with him to facilitate trust to start his road to recovery (which is super hard to do with a 12 year old!). When progress wasn’t happening as we thought it should and my son’s health (physically and emotionally) continued to deteriorate rapidly, Amy was able to think outside the box and recognize things weren’t making sense. She suggested there was something else going on. She worked alongside our pediatrician to get our son tested and treated for medical condition that ended up being the underlying cause of his food restriction and exercise obsession.

Through kindred wellness and nutrition, our son was also given the chance to be treated by a team that helped to heal all aspects of him-his mind and body.  While the nutrition part is crucial, the mental health behind certain behaviors was not ignored.  It wasn’t just our son that Amy cared for either. The support Amy and her team provided to me and my husband was far above and beyond. The patience and kindness given to us, in our time of pure panic was unmatched.  We thought we were losing our son, but Amy made it very clear that she would do everything she could to bring him back. Amy will always hold a special place in our family’s heart.”

JB, Mother of a client

“I brought my daughter to Kindred Nutrition to help her recover from Anorexia Nervosa. I highly recommend this place for anyone who is or has a loved one struggling with an eating disorder. Amy and her team have been so instrumental in helping my daughter get to a safe and healthy weight by educating and supporting her. We travel over eighty miles round trip to my daughter’s individual and group appointments because they are so knowledgeable and know how to help not only the person with the eating disorder but the family as well. It is well worth the time, energy and trip to work with people who can help.”

AB, Mother of a client

“Kindred Nutrition was instrumental and vital during my daughter’s recovery from Anorexia Nervosa. The dietitians were absolutely wonderful. They were very patient and kind at every session even when my daughter was yelling and screaming at her because she didn’t want to follow the meal plan. Amy constantly challenged my daughter to incorporate foods that she viewed as “bad” which was key in her recovery. I loved that her treatment plan included not just weekly sessions but also yoga. My daughter loved going to yoga which really helped her relax and clear her mind. I would highly recommend Kindred Nutrition.”

EP, Mother of a client

“I started working with Amy over 2 years ago after struggling 20+ years with an eating disorder/disordered eating. My relationship with food was taxing, all consuming and exhausting. I wasn’t nourishing myself given how active my lifestyle was/is and I was exhausted. I was in a vicious cycle of overeating/splurging and then restricting and over exercising.

After confiding in my husband that I was ready for a change, he found the Kindred Nutrition practice and I immediately made an appointment with Amy. Amy was so amazing to work with and just the person I needed to rebuild myself, my relationship with food, and nourish my body. I completely trusted her and gave up control of my food and the scale and followed her advice. I have been working with her for over 2 years now. My life has completely changed. I am so much happier and healthier. I am more confident in myself, my body and what I can do. Amy was amazing and I can’t thank her enough for helping me overcome this disorder that I have been struggling with for more than half of my life. But not only did working with Amy help me emotionally and physically, my family has been eating better overall too as now I know how to not only nourish myself but how to cook/nourish for my family. We have all reaped the benefits of Amy and her practice and I look forward to continuing working with her.”
