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.
