Cassie Bjork has spent the past 10 years helping people stop obsessing over food and lose weight effortlessly — while enjoying what they eat, and feeling like themselves again. Cassie delivers a no-nonsense, keep-it-simple approach to nutrition, health, and life. There’s no calorie-cutting, no sacrificing, no starving. Cassie’s programs are meant for people to feel full, energized, and satisfied—and in control of their bodies and lives again.

Cassie is a rebel, who encourages people to break the so-known “rules of dieting” in order to lose weight. She is a #1 best selling author and dietitian who went through her own battle trying to lose weight unsuccessfully while following the method of eating less and exercising more. Years later she started to unlearn everything she thought was right for weight loss and discovered a new and revolutionary way of relating to food, as well as caring about hormone function, mindset and community.

Cassie’s motto is to respect and honor your body while feeding it the right foods for sustainable weight loss.
