It all started when…

Fuel2Live Nutrition was created by Michelle Boutet, RDN, CSSD, LD in 2014 in an effort to help people learn how to fuel their bodies properly so they look, feel and perform their best.

Her education is extensive and includes a BA in Communication from the University of New Hampshire, after which she spent five years working in the marketing field. Looking for a career change, she applied and was accepted to the Registered Dietitian program at Simmons University. Once she completed this two year program, she was matched to a 12-month Dietetic Internship through the University of Delaware (required for the RD exam). Her rotations were intense and comprehensive, and included providing medical nutrition therapy in Boston-based hospitals and clinics, menu and recipe creation in food service facilities, and nutrition counseling in a private practice, to name a few. Her first job as an RD was for a well-known fitness company, where she built a unique nutrition program from the ground up. After working as Dietitian in the field for a few years and realizing her true interests and passions, she took her career to the next level and became Board Certified in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). Besides this credential, she is licensed and registered as a dietitian, and never stops researching and learning about all things food and nutrition.

Michelle has spent the past 7+ years working in the nutrition and fitness industry. From whipping up healthy meals in an industrial kitchen, to clinical work in hospital settings, to coaching CrossFit and providing sports nutrition counseling, she has learned first-hand the main challenges that lie between people and improving their diets. She has counseled hundreds of people on weight loss, sports performance, and various medical conditions. Her goal is to help people streamline the healthy eating process from start to finish so they can live their best life.

She loves busting food and diet myths, and helping to reduce confusion (and money spent) at the grocery store, along with simplifying meal planning. She loves the freezer section and creating tasty 10-min meals on a budget.

She enjoys trying new foods and restaurants, as well as indulging in local cuisine while traveling.
