Don't Hold Back Your Testimonial

What did you like about your experiences at Viverant? First off, I love the clinic space- warm, friendly, and inviting. I'm always greeted with a smile and a friendly hello from Doua or whoever is working at the front desk. They are more than willing to help resolve any insurance or scheduling issues and answer any questions that come up. And, of course, I have such respect for the owners of Viverant for bringing Rasa Troup on to their staff. She is so incredibly knowledgeable about nutrition and fueling your body properly, and she cares so deeply. She has challenged me and made me go outside my comfort zone, but it is all because she wants to see me succeed. I can't really say enough good things about Rasa! What goals did you accomplish with Viverant Nutrition? When I first arrived in Minneapolis, I was beginning treatment for anorexia. I was a highly successful distance runner in college and unfortunately developed an eating disorder as I finished and began pursuing professional running. Rasa immediately began working with me to challenge my irrational thoughts and behaviors centered around food, and it is with her help over the course of the last two years that I have recovered and am able to enjoy not only food and eating, but life in general. Her patience, persistence, encouragement, and support has been unbelievable, and words cannot fully express how grateful I am to have come in contact with her on my road to recovery. I am happier and healthier than I have ever been thanks in huge part to her mentoring and guidance. She has truly helped me turn my life around. What separates Viverant Nutrition from other nutrition programs or services you have tried? I saw a nutritionist briefly as a professional runner when I lived in Michigan a few years ago, and she had never been a runner and did not completely relate or understand where I was coming from. I wasn't able to make much progress. When I moved to Minnesota, however, I met Rasa, who is of course an Olympian and has been a runner all her life. I instantly felt at ease. There is no substitute for direct experience. She knows the nutrition/fuel runners and athletes need to be at their best. And, she is also extremely honest and balanced. She advocates for balance in all areas of life, and that especially includes in your meals. For example, she was able to give me very important information at times in debunking food trends that you often hear in the media, like carbs are bad for you, or that you need to completely cut out certain foods. I would recommend Rasa Troup in a heartbeat to anyone needing help with the often confusing world of nutrition, whether it be to optimize performance, learn how to better eat intuitively, or to overcome an eating disorder. She is without a doubt the most knowledgeable individual I've ever come across in regards to nutrition. I trust that she can help empower anyone to make better nutrition decisions and, as Viverant's motto says, discover their true potential. She has certainly helped me find mine.
