Maria Bock, M.S., RDN, LDN, CPT
My food issues really became apparent after I started competing in bodybuilding in 2015, which worsened my disordered eating patterns and my poor relationship with food. I was miserable and felt like I was stuck. One day I had enough, and I knew there had to be a better way. I set my physique goals aside, started doing my own research, and took the time to understand the nutrition my body actually needs, and my life changed.
My professional experience began after receiving a bachelors in Chemistry from Iowa State University in 2010. After working as an analytical chemist for almost 10 years, I went back to school and received my Masters in Nutrition and Wellness and a Certificate in Nutrition Entrepreneurship from Benedictine University in 2020. I completed my dietetic internship with Keith and Associates and became a Registered Dietitian in December 2022.
