Hi, I’m Kiersten!

Most people call me Kes.
I’m a journalist focused on nutrition reporting from a non-weight loss perspective. Through recipes, scientific deep dives, essays, and expert interviews, my work provides a welcoming outlook on health and longevity while busting toxic diet culture myths.

Forkful inspires you to break up with dieting—and pick up a fork. We tear away from toxic diet culture and approach health from a welcoming, holistic perspective. One that promotes living a long, happy life—not one focused on the scale.
