Food has become an enemy and a form of self-sabotage for so many, rather than to be used for enjoyment to fuel our bodies. I don't believe there are good or bad foods, though nutrients do feed our brains and bodies in different ways. The more rules we create around food, the more we create cravings and obsessions rather than a sense of peace and control.
While I am a dietitian specializing in eating disorders, and treating those of all ages with disordered eating, I work with a broad spectrum of other nutrition concerns. from helping those with gastrointestinal issues with their gut health and guiding women through healthy pregnancies.
I had ten years of experience working with a treatment team who provided inpatient care to both women and men struggling with eating disorders. In 2013, I began my private practice as a dietitian to better address the needs of my patients. I completed my undergrad at UNC with a BS in Human Nutrition, followed by a Masters in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition. I am also a Registered Dietitian.

Understanding nutrition can feel impossible in a world where information can become skewed by diet culture and trendy food fads. My goal as a registered dietitian is to provide the space where we can break it all down and learn about nutrition from a neutral lens. I practice from a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach to help you work toward finding peace with food and your body. Food can be so much more than just nourishment, and my hope is to help you find food freedom.
I am a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian and have nearly 10 years of experience in the treatment of eating disorders. My passion is working with clients toward recovery from eating disorders, disordered eating, and chronic dieting. I strongly believe every person has a chance at full recovery. I also believe that in recovery, working toward Intuitive Eating is possible, and I utilize principles of this approach in my nutrition counseling.
Outside of work, food is also a hobby of mine - whether it’s whipping up a new recipe in my kitchen or trying different restaurants to find the best french fries in Denver. I also love skiing and spending time in the mountains of Colorado, and am almost never without my rescue pup by my side.
Shane Bates, MS RD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
I have always had a passion for helping people in many ways. I started in the field of behavioral science and moved into nutritional science. I believe that all foods can fit. I've worked as a dietitian since 2012. I have nine years of experience working at an eating disorder treatment center which helped solidify my view that food truly is medicine. I come from a non-biased approach to treating all eating disorders. I have expertise in anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and ARFID. I specialize in sports nutrition as I worked for seven years with athletes who struggled with eating disorders.
I enjoy working with clients and see everyone as an individual. I am able to curate their nutritional needs for them to help reach their optimum goal. Though my primary focus has been with adults with disordered eating, I also have experience and feel comfortable working with children and adolescents in many facets.
I went to Metropolitan State College of Denver for my Undergraduate Degree in Behavioral Science and California State University, Los Angeles for my Masters in Nutritional Science. Living in Los Angeles for my masters created more diversity for my passion for nutrition counseling.
I am a native of Colorado, and I love all things Colorado. I love paddle boarding, hiking, skiing, and camping.
