About Me

“In spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns, we must never lose sight of a beautifully conceived meal.” Julia Child

Hi, I am Diane Boyd. I am a registered dietitian passionate about  helping others achieve their personal best, whether it is through improved nutrition for competitive sports, or simply improving the the quality of their life by achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. I specialize in weight management, sports nutrition, and wellness. As the consulting dietitian at Cape Fear Sports Enhancement I see many promising athletes.

Prior to my position at Cape Fear Sports Enhancement, I worked for seven years as a clinical dietitian in a hospital setting providing medical nutrition therapy for individuals with a variety of illnesses including, but not limited to, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, renal failure, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, and high risk pregnancy. It was during these years that I realized my dream job was in wellness; helping individuals make lifestyle changes before they become debilitated by devastating disease. It is through prevention we can improve lives and save health care dollars.

My last position was chief clinical dietitian at a teaching hospital in Michigan.

My formal education includes graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Delaware with a B.S. in dietetics. I also have an M.B.A. from the University of Michigan.

I am a member of the American Dietetic Association and the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutrition Practice Group.

I am licensed by the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition.
