Penobscot Bay YMCA welcomed Marcy Kyle, RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) to its staff this month as its staff nutrition specialist. Kyle will lead “Jump Start Your Weight Loss,” a program of group weight loss classes, and will also provide medical nutrition therapy to treat chronic conditions, illnesses or injuries.
“Jump Start” program participants will become students of their own behaviors, becoming aware of when, how and why they occur, and learn how to adopt healthier habits.
Kyle, who lives in Rockport, is a Certified Diabetes Educator, with comprehensive knowledge of diabetes management, prediabetes, and diabetes prevention. In addition, she is a member of Dietitians in Integrative and Functional Medicine (DIFM), a group of practitioners who use combinations of therapies including whole foods, tailored supplements and mind-body modalities for a holistic, personalized approach to health and healing. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and currently is on the Public Policy Panel for the Maine Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
