Marie Elena Bitar 


Founder & Owner of Beyond Food Rules

Hello! I was born and raised in Lebanon, a lovely country located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Growing up, food held a very special place in my heart. My fondest childhood memories took place in my mother's kitchen and grandmother's dining room. To no one's surprise, I loved food so much that I majored in it. I spent 7+ years of my life learning about food, nutrition, and health. After completing a Bachelor's degree in Nutritional Sciences, I moved to the US to pursue a master's degree in Public Health and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Currently, I run my private practice Beyond Food Rules, LLC I help folks reclaim their happiness, freedom and health by ditching dieting and tuning into their bodies’ wisdom.


I am a firm believer that ALL bodies deserve to be treated with respect and that food should hold no morality. I have extensive training and expertise in the following areas:

  • Eating Disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia, BED, ARIFD, OSFED)

  • Disordered Eating & Chronic Dieting

  • Intuitive Eating & Mindful Eating

  • Body Image

  • Chronic Disease Management

  • HAES & Weight-Inclusive Care
