About Diana

Welcome,

My name is Diana Leah Wilson, MS, RD, LDN and I’m the ninja behind Project Eat Me.

If you want to improve your eating habits but are feeling overwhelmed by all the conflicting information about what you should eat, you are about to loooove me!

That’s because I make nutrition dead simple to understand and take into your own hands.

Want to know more about me?

Diana Leah Wilson of Project Eat Me

I am a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. Through my dietetic internship, I gained experience in a variety of settings including fitness centers, outpatient diabetes and nutrition clinics, eating disorders education, and college food-service. I also completed the Graduate Certificate in Eating Disorders and Obesity at Northern Illinois University providing me with specialized insight into issues that affect weight management. In addition, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology providing me with an understanding of human motivation and behavior, which compliments my nutrition expertise when working with people to help them meet their wellness goals though nutrition, fitness, and stress management.

In addition to my love of nutrition, I also enjoy writing, online communication, and cooking, and I especially like working with college students and young professionals. I combine these interests in my many pursuits, which include working as an online adjunct professor for Colorado Mountain College and Converse College, writing for online publications, and helping patients through weight loss with Duke University Health System. I am the Webmaster, Newsletter Editor, and Career Guidance Chair for the Durham-Chapel Hill Dietetic Association and the Director of Communications for the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group of the American Dietetic Association. I like to keep busy and I’m always looking for fun, new opportunities!

In my free time, I enjoy running, mountain biking, visiting neighborhood kitties with my fancy husband, and pretty much anything that can be done while enjoying the sunshine.

I combine my interests and pull knowledge and skills gained from all of these experiences to create content and services for Project Eat Me.

Okay, but what is Project Eat Me?

Project Eat Me is a food and health blog written for college students and young adults.

The mission of Project Eat Me is to help you nurture a healthy appreciation for food and to guide you in making smart choices in the dining hall, at the grocery store, in the kitchen, and at the table. Whether your goal is to stay healthy, manage your weight, improve athletic performance, or improve your relationship with food, Project Eat Me can help you.

If we’ve only just met – welcome! To get started, you may want to explore my blog.

I’m honored that you’ve taken a little time out of your day to visit my site. I hope that it’s helpful to you, but please let me know how I can help you be the happiest and healthiest you can be!

To your health and happiness!

Diana Leah Wilson

  1. All power to you, Diana! Until many more legislators, community leaders and the general populace realise this is a huge epidemic, very little will change. Even I feel such a reluctance to tackle the ‘fat’ issue because you fear hurting people’s feelings. But, as with cigarettes, until we start calling a spade a spade, we won’t change habits. One aspect of this that scares me – and is surely very close to your heart – is the loss of cooking skills in family households. How can children grow up eating healthy if they have no concept of how to cook? It is a dreadful loss of a core competency. All the more farcical given the current popularity of reality (ugh!) cooking shows on TV. Let’s stay in touch – I will Follow you – and maybe you can share some of your material to my ‘bottom of the world’ audience! Now. I’ve gotta get that black bean quesadilla recipe. Love black beans and Tex-Mex food generally. BTW: I have twin 21 year old sons, one of whom became a vegetarian at around 5 yo and has stayed that way ever since. His brother reckons food is not worth eating if it does not come with meat. Aaagh! Go figure.
