Fresh N Fit continues to feature various trainers, motivators and professionals from around Atlanta to help keep you feeling inspired, which is crucial especially during these times of uncertainty. Our latest installment is with Anna Huffman from Dietitian Meets Dumbbell. A registered dietitian and nutrition coach, Anna is committed to helping others build muscle in addition to improving their relationship with food.
Ironically, her fitness and nutrition journey began out of desperation. “I was struggling with disordered eating and severe stomach pain to the point that it landed me in the hospital.” Eventually after going from doctor to doctor with no conclusive answers, she began to do her own research.
Getting her undergraduate and graduate degrees in nutrition and dietetics was just the beginning. “I realized I love working with women who were new to their fitness journey by helping them sift through all that is being marketed to them in order to implement sustainable strategies that will help them get fit and improve their relationship with their nutrition.“
Staying motivated with all that’s been happening with the pandemic over the last year and a half has been a challenge to everyone around the world. What works for you may not work for others. “My best recommendation is to do what fits in best with YOUR lifestyle. Your routine may look very different from your favorite Instagram influencer, and that’s okay! How can you take 1-2 small steps each day towards a better you? I never try to overhaul someone’s life.“
As a dietitian, Anna recognizes the impact of having a lifestyle that focuses on proper nutrition and everyone has their own personal reason on why it’s important to them. Whether the goal is to feel good mentally or just feeling sexy in some jeans, eating healthy is key. “That’s why I appreciate what companies like Fresh N Fit Cuisine. You don’t have to be a good cook, you can utilize it if you’re short on time and it’s pretty affordable especially when compared to eating out. I’m all about convenience and making changes that are easy to implement, and Fresh N Fit does just that.‘
