Virtual Nutrition Coaching 

Hello and Welcome! I'm Susan Black, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.  I help women in midlife get off the diet rollercoaster and create healthy healthy eating and lifestyle habits for better health, more energy, and managing a healthy weight. You deserve to feel good!


  • Are you sick of dieting, struggling with your weight, and tired of stressing about what to eat?

  • Do you want to have more energy and curb cravings?

  • Are you frustrated and exhausted from the "eat less and exercise more" routine for weight loss?

  • Do you notice brain fog creeping in, achy joints and pain, hot flashes, and getting good sleep feels more like a dream than reality?

  • Are you concerned about your health and increasing cholesterol, blood pressure, fatty liver disease, or prediabetes risk?

  • Ready to ditch diets and focus on good health rather than the number on the scale? 

  • Would you like to spend your time and energy enjoying life rather than counting calories, macros, or points?

  • Are you suffering with menopause symptoms that leave you feeling more like a "hot mess" and less like yourself?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you're in the right place!


​Get off the diet roller coaster for good! Create healthy habits to feel your best in midlife, perimenopause, menopause, and post menopause. I don't believe in diets, counting calories or macros, eliminating foods you enjoy, or that the number on the scale measures your success. I believe in focusing on the goal of good health and feeling your best, from the inside out. I believe small changes get big results.


I look at the whole picture of you by addressing nutrition, eating habits, lifestyle, exercise, stress, sleep, and self-care for sustainable results. 

If you're ready to create a healthy lifestyle plan, without the stress and overwhelm of a diet, schedule a free 20-minute call with me. Let's talk about your health goals and where you struggle.


I have over 30 years experience as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist helping clients build healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits without the stress of some unrealistic and frustrating diet. I became a dietitian because I wanted to help others learn how to use food to improve their health and feel their best. Healthy eating doesn't have to be complicated or restrictive; it should be easy and enjoyable and fit into your life. 


I've always believed in the proverb "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." One positive step can lead to so many positive actions in our lives. 

I enjoy exercising, spending time with my family and friends, gardening, traveling, and trying new things. Life is an adventure!

I accept HSA/FSA cards and credit/debit card. I am an in-network provider with Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield for weight loss (BMI 30 or greater), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and fatty liver disease.
