About me

Angie Dye (MS, RDN, CSSD, LDN)

Angie Dye is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). She is also a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.

Angie works one-on-one with clients at her nutrition practice, Carpe Diem Nutrition, in Hershey, PA. Areas of expertise include Sports Nutrition, Digestive Health, and Intuitive Eating. She enjoys helping athletes optimize their performance with nutrition, and has seen the benefits in every level of athlete from youth, up to the ultra endurance level. She served as a Nutrition Staff Member at Diabetes Training Camp from 2012-2017 and is inspired by working with athletes living with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

Angie believes in the power of food as medicine and loves working with clients on ways to use this important tool to improve their overall health. For her clients with digestive disorders such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Disease and Celiac Disease, this means finding foods and patterns of eating that assist with symptom management while ensuring nutritional adequacy of the diet prescription. For her clients exploring Intuitive Eating, this can mean working on letting go of old dieting rules and learning to trust the body’s own hunger and fullness cues.

Angie loves being a wife and mother of 3 active, funny and loving children, as well as one rambunctious dog. She has a passion for cooking and loves sharing simple, healthful and delicious recipes with her clients. She has always loved sports, and completed her first triathlon in 1999. She continues to compete in triathlons and half-marathons, and finished her first Half Ironman Triathlon in August of 2016.

Angie holds a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Science from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to starting her private practice, Angie worked as a Clinical Dietitian at the University of Chicago Hospitals. She also served as adjunct faculty at Loyola University in Chicago.

¨Thank you for your kind and sensitive expertise in Intuitive Eating. You have lifted the yoke of dieting from my shoulders, and I am so grateful. You have helped me learn more about myself than I ever would have imagined. Thank you so much.¨

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

How much will it cost?

A 1-hour initial consultation is $150, and 30-minute follow-up appointments are $75. In Pennsylvania, many healthcare plans cover Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) with no out-of-pocket costs, if your deductible has been met. However, every individual insurance plan varies greatly, so please check with your individual plan on coverage specifics.

What happens in an initial consultation?
At your initial consultation, I will review your medical history, lab values (if available) as well as your dieting history. We will talk about your current schedule and set realistic, achievable goals that fit with your lifestyle. I will provide you with recipes and meal ideas to support your goals, and provide access to meal logging software, should you choose this option.
What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is an evidenced-based, mind-body health approach, comprised of 10 Principles and created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. It is a weight-neutral model with a validated assessment scale and over 90 studies to date (Tribole 2017). Essentially, Intuitive Eating is a personal process of honoring health by listening and responding to the direct messages of the body in order to meet your physical and psychological needs.

Is Intuitive Eating right for me?
Yes! Intuitive Eating is right for everyone, but you need to be ready to let go of dieting and embrace what is already inside of you.
Can you just tell me what to eat?

This is a trick question. Of course I can just tell you what to eat, but that would be boring and essentially another form of a diet. I would rather spend our time together working on ways to get you enjoying the foods you love in ways that feel good and in line with your health goals. I can provide meal ideas and recipes to support these goals, but I rarely take pleasure in telling anyone exactly what to eat!

Can you recommend dietary supplements?
I will assess your current eating for any nutrition gaps that exist. I will always try to meet dietary needs with food first, but if that isn’t possible, I can certainly recommend supplements.
