Riana Giusti, MS,CN
ONE-ON-ONE NUTRITION COUNSELING
OFFERED IN PERSON OR REMOTE
Optimize your fitness, boost energy, lose weight, improve internal health
Here’s the thing. Life is short. How can we make it as full as possible? In my opinion, food and movement can and should be some of life’s sweetest pleasures. I help my clients find a healthy balance of eating and moving so they can feel their best and live a full life that is rich in joy.
My approach to nutrition is not one size fits all. I don’t believe in quick fixes or fads. Instead, I offer an individualized approach to food that is rooted in science and takes into account everyone’s unique relationship to food and exercise, biochemistry, and particular lifestyle challenges. I want to know YOU so I can be your partner on this journey.
I have the expertise to devise a science-backed plan for you that works and I’m here as your teammate to listen and hold you accountable regardless of the barriers you may encounter. I believe in a multi-faceted approach and am here to help you with so much more than food–I have solutions to help you optimize your sleep, reduce your stress and find an activity routine that you love.
I am a Certified Nutritionist (CN) with two degrees in nutrition and over 15 years of experience coaching people through their health and wellness journeys. But guess what? I’m also a real human being: I’m a fiancé, dog mom, a working professional, and I’m trying to balance it all — just like you! I don’t have it all figured out to perfection, but I’m excited to help you take the first step forward.
