As a Dietitian Nutritionist, often the first question I get from someone newly diagnosed with Diabetes is, “what can I eat?”. I will teach you how to create healthy meals using a meal-plan that you feel comfortable with. It’s not always about Carbohydrate Counting. Other methods exist as well. I will teach you how to control your blood sugar by healthy eating, managing stress, solving problems and help you to understand your medications, including insulin.
If you have been diagnosed with Pre-diabetes or Metabolic Syndrome, consider yourself fortunate to have received this wake-up call, so that you can begin to take steps now to prevent Diabetes Type 2. I will teach you strategies that will help you to prevent the progress to T-2 Diabetes. Studies have shown that T-2 Diabetes can be prevented and/or put into remission.
What you eat will eventually affect your health, either in a positive way or a negative way. It can help you to live a long, healthy and fulfilling life or it can leave you vulnerable to becoming overweight, obese and suffering from chronic disease(s)and/or cancer. I will guide you to a truly healthy way of eating. Healthy meals and exercise needs to be balanced in order to achieve successful weight loss. You can exercise as much as you like but if you are not eating healthy foods, you will not receive the full benefit of weight loss, and vice versa. I will educate you on ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise into your lifestyle and create an individualized Meal-plan to help you to achieve your goal(s).
I am a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, Licensed Dietitian, and Diabetes Care and Education Specialist. I speak English and Spanish. My passion is to use the training and experience I have gained in the practice of Nutrition and Dietetics to guide you to attain and maintain optimal health to the end of helping you to live your best life ever. I received my Bachelor of Science in Health Science Degree (BSHS) from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/Rutgers University. I completed a 1200-hour internship and am registered with the Commission on the Accreditation of Dietetics Education. I am also a Certified Diabetes Educator and a member of the American Association of Diabetes Educators. Before achieving the above, I received an Associates of Science Degree (AS) in Food and Nutrition from Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, California. I bring to the table many years of experience working as a Clinical Dietitian in several Acute Care Hospitals, as an Outpatient Dietitian in Adult and Pediatric Diabetes Centers, Long-Term Care, Public Health, Dialysis and Private Practice. I maintain my professional credentials by attending workshops, seminars, webinars, through on-line courses and by keeping current with the latest research articles pertinent to the field of Nutrition and Dietetics. I am licensed in the states of Florida, Georgia and New York (Certified). With healthcare coverage being such a controversial issue these days, the best thing we can all do for ourselves is to become healthy and remain as healthy as possible, for as long as we can, to avoid the need to use the Healthcare System. That means we need to understand how to feed our bodies so that it continues to function at its optimum level. We also need to resolve to engage in at least thirty minutes of moderate to intense physical activity every day, we need to reduce stress, get at least eight hours of restful sleep each night and yes, we need to be willing to change behaviors that can be a prelude to illness.
