About the founders

We will be your guides on this learning journey

We are 3 registered dietitians who work in private practice who have integrated a weight-inclusive practice into our work for many years. We understand the discomfort and questions that can come about when learning this approach because we have lived them! 

We have combined our knowledge and experience to offer you this comprehensive training of the basics of the weight inclusive approach that we would have loved to have when we started our learning journeys. 

Julia Lévy-Ndejuru RD, M.Sc., Ph.D (c)

Julia is a dietitian, PhD candidate, and author. She has spent the past several years advocating for a weight-inclusive approach to health and nutrition. Her work spans various sectors, including media, clinical practice, and academia. Julia’s research interests include weight science, anti-fat bias and approaches that help develop a healthy relationship with food in diverse populations. In October 2023, she and Marilou co-authored the book Au-delà de la grossophobie: redéfinir son bien-être et habiter son corps. This work is a resource for anyone wishing to better understand and mend their relationship with their body and food.




Marilou Morin RD

Marilou pratique en tant que nutritionniste-diététiste depuis 2011 (graduée de l’université McGill) en pratique privée et dans le réseau public où elle a touché à diverses clientèles. Sa préoccupation profonde de ne pas causer de tort l’a amenée à diriger sa formation continue vers les troubles des conduites alimentaires et désordres alimentaires, la stigmatisation à l’égard du poids, l’image corporelle et les traumatismes. Elle est d’ailleurs une des premières Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor au Québec. Son approche se veut bienveillante, sans jugement, inclusive à l’égard du poids. Elle est sensible aux traumatismes, aux expériences vécues, aux injustices sociales et à l’oppression systémique. En plus de sa pratique privée, Marilou propose un programme avec soutien et des mini-cours en ligne pour la clientèle dans le processus d’alimentation intuitive, entretient un blogue et fait rayonner l’approche anti-régime dans les réseaux sociaux et dans les médias.




Lisa Rutledge RD

After graduating from McGill University in 2005, Lisa realized that, while she knew about science and biology, the experience and wisdom of clients is just as important in building a strategy towards greater wellbeing. She is eternally grateful for stumbling into the world of weight-inclusive care and anti-diet nutrition support which changed her career path in an amazing way. For the past decade, Lisa’s focus as been on supporting teens and adults with disordered eating and eating disorders while striving to be neurodivergent and LGBTQ affirming. Lisa believes strongly in a weight-inclusive approach for all and supports clients in her private practice, in workshops and conferences. She has shared her knowledge both in her own blog and in the media (Huffington Post Canada, CJAD and CBC).

She is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology and enjoys spending time with her kids and a good book.

The creation of Practique Inclusive began with a desire to share our knowledge and experience, without pretension, to offer the training that we would have liked to follow when we started to practice in a weight inclusive way.

Practique Inclusive represents weight inclusive practices, but we also stand for inclusiveness in general.
