  • Jessica Setmick who runs the Understanding Nutrition Program is very well qualified.
  • Jessica Setmick has an official website.
  • You can contact Jessica Setmick directly by email, telephone or fax.


  • It seems as if you need to be a Health Professional in order to access the Eating Disorders Boot Camp.
  • The website seems to be lacking in some essential information and it is not always clear what she is referring to when she speaks of Eating Disorders on the website.
  • The website does not tell us how much an individual session with Jessica Setmick costs.
  • The website does not give any concrete information about how to lose weight sensibly and it is clearly intended more for those suffering from clinical eating disorders than for those looking to lose a little weight for health or aesthetic reasons.


There is no doubt that Jessica Setmick is very well qualified and experienced at treating eating disorders through her Understanding Nutrition program, but if you are overweight and are looking for someone who can guide you as to a safe diet plan she may not be the person for you. It seems as though her Understanding Nutrition workshops are aimed at those who are actually working in the Health Profession. Her niche area also seems to be Eating Disorders, and wanting to lose weight does not necessarily of course mean that you have an eating disorder.
