Positive Nutrition for Life is a self-guided, evidence-based online course taught by a registered dietitian nutritionist that teaches you how to rebuild trust, confidence and positivity with food and your body. It consists of video trainings, templates, guided exercises and worksheets designed to help you heal your relationship with food and your body.


All of the training is online, contained in the members-only course website. The information and tools in this course are the exact methods used with individual clients to help them heal their relationship with food. Online training is convenient, cost-effective and flexible. Course members can access the course material day or night and can go at their own pace. 


The course has five modules and within those modules are lessons diving deeper into the main topics. The course has around 20 hours of coursework in total plus 10+ hours more of self-directed learning opportunities.


Throughout the course, you'll learn why and how to break away from diet culture, understanding the fundamental physical and psychological reasons diets have always failed you in the past. We'll walk you though rebuilding trust with food and your body utilizing the Four Pillars of a Healthy Relationship with Food: Mindfulness, Body Liberation, Intuitive Eating and Positive Nutrition. Each of those pillars comprise a module of the course, and the course dives deep into each one providing detailed lessons about each pillar as well as activities and journal prompts to go deeper.

The best part—students have lifetime access to the course and the members-only podcast so progress doesn't stop once the course is complete!


I'm Paige Smathers, a registered dietitian nutritionist passionate about helping people heal their relationship with food and their bodies. It’s my personal goal to help more people learn to rebuild trust, confidence and positivity into their relationship with food and END the dieting game for good.


My experience is that over time people build a negative, manipulative, failing relationship with food, health, diet and weight. My philosophy is first to help you fix your relationship, thoughts, experience of food so that you eat in an effective and healthy way that's right for your body. And as a result, you will find improvement in your health and overall well-being.


Whatever your own food freedom looks like—Positive Nutrition® for Life will help you get there. I have strategically crafted this program with cutting edge strategies and simple solutions to help you finally discover peace with food.


I have made huge leaps towards being an intuitive eater. I used to constantly struggle with trying to diet thinking that would be my cure all. Now, the majority of my days are spent eating healthfully and mindfully, free of dieting.
