Georgie Fear


Georgie Fear RD, CSSD is a registered dietitian and a certified sports dietitian who has been in the field of nutrition for over 15 years!

She is passionate about nutrition and in her own words: “Helping people reach their goals and eat happily-ever-after… Yes, I run a nutrition coaching program, but my goal isn’t just for you to get lean (though that’s the plan), it’s for you to get and stay lean, sustainably, without exerting much effort. To do it with love and joy and a smile on your face.”

Georgie believes in honest sharing and scientific evidence. She runs the website One by one nutrition, which is dedicated to helping people to create a better relationship with food and create healthy habits. (And the habit based nutrition is also the topic of today’s podcast)

Georgie also authored and provided recipes for a few books, namely Lean habits, The Endurance diet and Racing weight cookbook by Matt Fitzgerald, who you can know from one of the previous podcast episodes.
