Heather Lasco, RD, LD
Hi, I’m Heather Lasco. I’m a Registered Dietitian passionate about helping people heal their relationship with food and their body.
Like many other dietitians, I love food. All foods! All foods can fit into your diet, and I want to help you get to a place where you can ditch food rules and enjoy eating again. As a provider that specializes in HAES® and intuitive eating, the approach I use with clients is compassionate and inclusive instead of rigid or restrictive. Our work together is a partnership to empower you to connect with your body’s internal cues and help you find a pattern of eating that enhances your health and wellbeing.

Background and Professional Experience
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics at Life University and completed my dietetic internship there as well. After passing the national exam, I became credentialed as a Registered Dietitian with a license in the state of Georgia. Since then, I have mainly worked in private practice and gained experience working at an eating disorder treatment facility. At that facility I worked with patients with various eating disorders at different levels of care such as inpatient, residential, and partial hospitalization. This experience gave me a great foundation to work with patients further on in their eating disorder recovery in an outpatient setting. In my private practice, I work with many individuals in eating disorder recovery as well as those with disordered eating, chronic dieting, emotional eating, PCOS, body image issues, and other general nutrition issues.
Get to Know Me
I currently live in Atlanta, GA. When I’m not working you can find me enjoying time outside on a local trail, gardening in my backyard, trying out new restaurants, or cuddling on the couch with my fur kids Nala and Arya.
