About Lucia Harmeling, RD

Lucia Harmeling is a body attunement dietitian, author, yoga instructor, and women’s empowerment coach. She worked in the Houston Medical Center as a clinical dietitian for seven years, dedicating her last three to oncology nutrition.

She is now the founder and owner of Savorli, LLC, whose mission is to help women ditch dieting, self-hatred, and self-limiting beliefs. She stands for body diversity, holistic health, and living a passionate life.

The Power That Comes From Trusting Yourself

As dietitians, Lucia and I could simply tell our patients what to eat. In fact, many ask us for this. However, doing so does nothing to empower people to learn how to feed themselves and tap into their own intuition. As experts, we can provide guidance but when individuals are able to trust their gut they see the best results.

This certainly requires a degree of faith and trust. You don’t know how something is going to wind up until after the fact. Yet, through our experiences, we’ve found that sometimes you just have to take the action that feels right. The more you learn to trust yourself, the more comfortable the act will become.


Your Vulnerability Helps You and Other People Too

Having faith in your own intuition requires a degree of vulnerability. Your success or failure depends on the chances you take. This vulnerability can also serve others. Lucia discusses how being open and sharing her story has helped others find the strength and confidence they need to start their own healing journeys.

The truth is, we all struggle. Yet, when we pretend that all is perfect in our lives, we cut off the possibility of forming authentic relationships. Lucia describes how being open with her own struggles has helped her form deeper connections. When people know that you’ve been through something similar, they can find more confidence in undertaking their own journey.

“I’ve never made a decision going with my gut feeling and had it go against me, but I have made decisions that didn’t feel right that definitely weren’t right.” [5:54]

“In order to move forward, you have to get uncomfortable.” [12:03]

“When we’re vulnerable and raw, that’s when we connect the most with people. Everyone has their own struggles and their own challenges. If we always appear perfect, no one can connect with us.” [31:37]
