I’m Molly Kimball, registered dietitian and nutrition journalist with a passion for making it easy for people to live their healthiest, strongest lives possible. In New Orleans, where the party never stops, that goal can be daunting… but I love every bit of the challenge! I graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor of science degree in Nutrition & Dietetics, and a second bachelor of science degree in Food Science & Technology. I had the opportunity to work alongside researchers at the nationally renowned Pennington Biomedical Research Center in the food analysis and genetic research labs, studying fat genes and their influence on diet and weight. My education and studies along with my experience in research provided me with a solid foundation early on that connected the science of food and nutrition, and how it is so intricately tied to every aspect of our bodies and minds. As a Lifestyle Dietitian and a Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, I have managed the nutrition program at Ochsner Fitness Center in New Orleans for more than 20 years, working with thousands of clients ranging from people like you and me, to professional athletes. I’ve learned what drives us, what motivates us, what works and what doesn’t, and what derails even our best intentions. Having the ability to dial into these behaviors and challenges fuels my work in our community and serves as the inspiration for Eat Fit. I proud to have served as a nutrition consultant to the producers and medical researchers of The Dr. Oz Show from 2009-2013, and I am proud to have been featured as a nutrition expert by a variety of national media outlets, including Vogue, The New York Times, Newsweek, Shape, Health, Fitness, Thrillist.com, Runner’s World, Well+Good, Cosmopolitan, WebMDand CNN.com. As a columnist for NOLA.com |The Times-Picayune since 2008, I cover all things related to nutrition and wellness. I also have been the nutrition expert for New Orleans’ ABC affiliate WGNO since 2009, with weekly TV segments on WGNO’s Good Morning New Orleans, Get the Skinny with Molly. And now you can catch me on my own podcast, FUELED wellness + nutrition with Molly Kimball.
