In our culture, food is more than nutrition – it’s an obsession. Five minutes after lunch, we’re talking about dinner. And fortunately, Eat Fit is here to support your health and wellness journey while you enjoy your favorite foods; just look for the Eat Fit seal!

Molly Kimball, registered dietitian with Ochsner Fitness Center, set out to take the guesswork out of dining out healthfully, to make the healthy choice the easy choice.

In 2013, she collaborated with some of the most iconic restaurants in the New Orleans region to create Ochsner Eat Fit, a program that encourages chefs to offer nutritious, delicious meals for those who want to eat clean, watch their weight, and manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol. Look for the Eat Fit seal on menus at your favorite restaurants.

Our goal is to empower the community to live their strongest, healthiest lives possible by providing easy-to-access real-world education, inspiration and resources on wellness and nutrition.

Eat Fit has expanded statewide! Look for Eat Fit in regions near you, including Eat Fit NOLAEat Fit BREat Fit Acadiana, Eat Fit Northshore, and Eat Fit 318.
