I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) currently working in home health and acute care w/ knowledge and experience providing nutrition education to patients, students, and other health care professionals. My focus is using evidenced-based science -- not some sort of trend or made up BS. I'm not going to promote liquid fasts, detoxing, going paleo or "gluten-free" (unless you are diagnosed by a physician to have celiacs disease or sensitivity), "carbs are evil" approach. Weight loss and health is something that has to be sustainable and maintained throughout life -- can you survive on shots of apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper w/ lemon juice cocktails, and coffee enemas for the rest of your life? I don't think so ;)
I have experience providing nutrition education on different diseases including but not limited to diabetes, heart failure, high blood pressure, kidney disease (pre-dialysis and during dialysis), celiacs, diverticulitis, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, bariatric surgery, etc. I work daily to optimize nutrition for those who have lost weight (elderly people with poor nutrition intake, after surgery, or patients with cancer) or provide education on how to optimize and manage your health.
My hobbies include exercise (weight lifting, calistenchics, and running), working on cars, and traveling. I set a goal to do 1 event each year so physical fitness as part of a healthy lifestyle is important to me. This year I will be doing my 1st marathon in Honolulu -- I hate running but know it is a good workout for the heart! Past events have included Tough Mudder, Spartan Beast, SF Urbanathlon, SF Rock n roll 1/2 marathon, and several 5K runs.
