About Allison Tropf, MS, RD, CSSD

My name is Allison Tropf, and I am a registered dietitian, based in Lansing, Michigan, that helps individuals with eating disorders, disordered eating, and fixing their relationship with food and their bodies.  I am also a sports dietitian that works with athletes at all levels – from the weekend warrior to professional athletes.  In fact, I recently left a full time job in professional sports to pursue my passion – my private practice!  I also work with sports teams and clubs to help them reach their performance goals.

I provide individual and group eating disorder nutrition counseling, group sports nutrition education, individual athlete counseling, supplement guidance, training table meal ideas, and much more.

The ALT Philosophy:

Customization is Key

I believe every body and team is unique and I strive to work with each client to customize their nutrition and fitness plans based on their individual needs. No “cookie-cutter” plans here!

Building Relationships

I believe in doing everything possible to build relationships with every person I work with. I do this through in-person sessions, phone calls, virtual sessions, and consistent contact. I am here to give you the best coaching and nutrition counseling experience possible!

Education is Vital

I believe in educating each individual client and team. I understand that not everyone shares my love of nutrition and fitness; however, educating my clients is vital in empowering them to carry on with the healthy lifestyle habits we establish together.

Understanding the Research

Nutrition and fitness research is ever-evolving, which is why it is vital for me, as a health professional, to understand the new findings and recommendations. I believe in using evidence-based practice and professionalism to support my clients in reaching their goals!

Real and Delicious Food

I believe everyone deserves to eat good food – not just good for you food; delicious food! I do not believe in good or bad foods. As a dietitian, I believe that all foods fit and that my clients should include all foods that are delicious to them.

No Diets

I do not believe in diets. We all have a diet (what we eat on a daily basis), but I do not believe in starting or maintaining a strict, restrictive diet. Research has shown that diets simply do not work and my number one goal is to help my clients maintain a healthy lifestyle for years to come.

Starting where You Are

I believe everyone starts their nutrition and fitness journey at a different place. I may challenge my clients to step out of their comfort zone, but will never push them past their limits or start them off with too much. Each client’s plan is customized and periodized to start exactly where they are in their fitness or nutrition journey.

My daughter and I met with Allison to learn more about nutrition, particularly as it pertains to being a teen athlete...Allison was very knowledgeable and presented the information in a very easy to use fashion. We really felt like she understood our concerns and that offered great advice for how to implement more nutritious choices for all aspects of our lives.

Allison helped me a lot. She listens carefully and provides constructive, compassionate feedback. She is also knowledgeable about vegan nutrition and provided information about macro targets given my level of exercise. 10/10 would work with her again.
