About Vicki Robichaux
Registered Dietitian – Integrative and Functional Nutritionist
I am Vicki Robichaux, the registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) behind My Core Nutrition. I take a whole foods, functional medicine approach while guiding you on your journey to optimal health.
I am very passionate about nutrition but understand that the science is always evolving and what works for one person, doesn’t always work for another. I’ve tried the “eat less, move more” philosophy and about every fad diet there is. Mostly I was unsuccessful and my weight would fluctuate. Then in my 40’s I started to have hormonal changes and hypothyroidism that caused more challenges. I began studying functional medicine in hopes of “curing thy self.” Learning how hormones, genetic variances, medications, inflammation, sleep, food intolerances, stress, and lifestyle all effect our health and the ability to lose weight was exciting for me. I have found a happy balance in my life with my health and my weight and that is what I want for all of my clients.
I started my private practice in Houston but I am thrilled to be back home in Colorado!
I consider myself a “foodie” and a wine lover. I enjoy traveling all over the world and eating at great restaurants, so I wouldn’t ask you not to do the same. I enjoy an active lifestyle and take advantage of a variety of Colorado outdoor activities. I love to cook but I don’t want to spend all day doing it so convenience is key. I can help you and your family enjoy healthy meals that are both nutritious and delicious.
