Lehman College

I prayed and prayed and cried and prayed and with the help of G-d, I did get into an internship. A very good internship, Lehman College, in the Bronx. In my internship, I did various rotations in different fields of nutrition. I worked in a nursing home, I participated in a research study, I worked at WIC, G-d’s Love We Deliver, an assisted living and an out patient clinic. I traveled all around the five boroughs, and two nights a week I drove to the Bronx to attend classes to complete my Master’s degree in nutrition. This was all so intense, while raising a family and keeping my grades up, but I was fully committed. I finished my internship, passed by RD exam ( while being 9 months pregnant with my second child), and began to work in the field. I could finally sign my name “Gila Glassberg, RD.” It was literally the best feeling in the entire world. My first job was in a nursing home, and I loved it a first, until I realized that this is not why I set out to be a dietitian. I wanted to help people who had struggled with food and body image as I had years ago. This is where I began to vigorously research what type of jobs I could do with my RD. I honestly didn’t find much. Most of the jobs listed were clinical, in a hospital or nursing home. I didn’t think I would ever want to do private practice because I didn’t feel right putting people on weight loss programs, it just reminded me of the anxiety and shame I had felt when I was so calorically restricting myself in high school. This is when I stumbled upon Intuitive Eating. The funny thing is, is that I had never heard about Intuitive Eating during all my years of schooling. I actually went to meet with a women, her name is Perl Abramowitz, and she does parenting classes. I told her how I had such high hopes and dreams for being a dietitian but at this point I just felt unfulfilled at work. She told me about Rena Reiser, an Intuitive Eating Coach. I looked her up online and got in touch with her. She was so willing and eager to discuss and talk to me. I decided to start by reading the book Intuitive Eating. Once I read it, everything clicked.

  1. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward to your next publish, I抣l attempt to get the cling of it!
