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. I didn't do any goals during the past year or so because of the pandemic but in the prior years ran my 1st marathon (Honolulu 2019), tough Mudder, Spartan Beast, SF Urbanathlon, SF Rock n roll 1/2 marathon, and several 5K runs.
