Truthfully, I have an eating disorder, Anorexia. Refeeding is hard, but working with Nancy is a joy. Each time I leave her office feeling encouraged, uplifted and less anxious. I look forward to each session. She helps make me feel more secure about recovery. Recovery isn't easy; but with Nancy's support and understanding, I have hope.
I have benefited from our short time together, and I admire your dedication and wisdom. Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my efforts. You are providing a very valuable service!!!
Thank you so much for being my dietitian for so long. I've come such a long way and I'm feeling so healthy right now.
My husband had a heart attack nearly three years ago at the age of 46. Ms. Farrell was able to provide nutrition information and suggestions for how to implement changes in our food choices. The important point is that our family, including the kids, learned to eat healthier. I would recommend Ms. Farrell to anyone that has nutrition questions or needs to make lifestyle changes.
I have known Ms. Farrell professionally for over 8 years. Five years ago I was seriously overweight and struggling to get back to good physical shape after recovering from a total hip replacement. Ms. Farrell showed me how to be a better, and smarter eater while emphasizing the importance of a regular yet practical exercise routine. Today I am by far a healthier and nutritionally smarter Physical Education teacher as a result of Ms. Farrell's expert knowledge and dedication towards her profession.
I found Ms. Farrell to be of great help. In her supermarket labeling class I learned what was best to eat. We then walked through the store to view the products. This made it easy to see what was best for me.
Ms. Farrell is a kind and gentle person. She will work with you and never make you feel inferior or put you down if you make a mistake. I found her very knowledgeable about her profession, and a real jewel to work with.
I benefited greatly from the nutrition counseling I received from Ms. Farrell. She helped me understand nutrition and how to make food selections based on my own individual needs. I would recommend Ms. Farrell and her nutritional services to anyone of any age.
Ms. Farrell came to my school and did a presentation on nutrition for my students. They learned about the benefits of eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In addition my daughter received individual nutrition counseling. Ms. Farrell was truly an inspiration in my daughter's life. Anyone who wants to learn how to make healthy choices would benefit from Ms. Farrell's experience.
Ms. Farrell has been a wonderful resource. I have asked her for help on several occasions. She stays up-to-date with everything concerning health and nutrition. I have served on various committees with her. I have always found her to be very professional and knowledgeable, and very willing to hear what each person had to say.

I am a Registered Dietitian and I have a private nutrition counseling practice in Fredericksburg. I am also a college instructor. I cook as part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
For years, dietitians have advised people not to skip breakfast, in part because skipping breakfast leaves people hungry and susceptible to bingeing later on. But a study recently reported on in the New York Times seems to challenge that advice. The lead on the story caught my eye:
“Dieters are sometimes told to have a substantial breakfast, because it reduces the amount of food consumed during the rest of the day. Not so, a new study reports.”
Want to make a New Year's resolution that sticks? Consider calling it something else.
"Start with an intent or intention, not a resolution," said local registered dietitian Nancy Farrell. "Sometimes, people feel like they have to make a resolution, they have to give something up, they have to deny themselves."
Does turkey really make you tired? Are sugary foods actually the cause of hyperactive kids? Is chocolate a cure for depression? These are just a few of the countless misconceptions surrounding food in America.
Despite scientific research that proves the opposite, many people still regard these misguided beliefs as truth. Nancy Farrell, RD, of Farrell Dietitian Services took time to debunk some of these popular myths.
Nutritionist. Food Coach. How Good Is Their Diet Advice?
February 5, 2010 - If you feel the need for professional help with your eating habits or diet, you may assume a nutritionist is the person to talk to. As it turns out, that's not a particularly specific or useful term—a point driven home by recent advice published in a magazine from a "nutritionist" who claimed weight loss is aided by eating carbs and protein at separate meals, a notion not supported by science. (Mariah Carey followed similar advice from her trainer/nutritionist in 2008.)Read More
