My name is Michele McAlister. I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for over 27 years including over 18 years of diabetes experience and am a certified diabetes educator. In addition to diabetes education I have specialized in weight management, kidney disease management and in working with clients with gluten intolerance and food allergies primarily in adults.
I am the mother of two grown fabulous kids and the wife of a very supportive husband of 27 years living in Abilene, TX. I enjoy tap and jazz dancing and I perform every year with a group of fabulous ladies and men in two productions, lifting weights, walking and any class that resembles dance.
A Texas Tech graduate, I enjoy helping others as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Certified Diabetes Educator.
My philosophy is not to just give a person a do’s and don’ts list but to give you practical tips that are realistic for your lifestyle. I’m a realist. I know that people have busy lifestyles and can’t always have the perfect diet.
My goal is to give you the tools to make better choices for a healthier lifestyle. I believe in treating each person as an individual.
In my appointments with clients I focus on mindful eating strategies, good nutrition, incorporating more physical activity and stress management.
For those clients with diabetes I will educate you on how to care for your diabetes including strategies for preventing diabetes complications and improving your A1c and glycemic management.
