Heather Caplan, RD

I own a private practice for nutrition and run coaching in the Washington DC area. I am an anti-diet dietitian, and work with clients to adopt the principles of Intuitive Eating. My clients are primarily active women, some of whom have or had experiences with disordered eating, hypothalamic amenorrhea, or the Female Athlete Triad.

I host the RD Real Talk podcast, write here on the RD Real Talk blog, and send out a semi-regular newsletter with personal stories, suggested reads, and Intuitive Eating or running resources.

I’ve been known to commute from East to West coast. I’ve worked in public health, corporate wellness, marketing, and most recently the tech world. I love a good real talk chat or group run, and am interested in your story. I’m fascinated by personality types, habit changes, and how some people have never tasted green chiles.

My work has been featured in publications such as The Washington Post, Runner’s World, FITNESS magazine, Women’s Running, and Outside Online.  

You’ll find more of my running and life stories on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Or, you can listen to my weekly talks with fellow dietitians around the country on my RD Real Talk podcast.

Questions? Send me a note! I love to hear from you.
