If you are looking to shed a few pounds, writing down what you eat is an important habit to have. Journaling can make you more aware of what you are eating and less likely to overeat or eat the "wrong" foods.

: Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFN)- a philosophy that centers around a holistic, personalized approach to health and healing. IFN integrates a variety of nutrition therapies including whole foods, tailored supplements, and mind-body modalities in clinical practice.

Clinical interests in adults and children
    -Gastrointestinal health
    -Eating disorders
    -Pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes
    -Cardiovascular health
    -Weight management
    -Cancer prevention

Lisa brings a unique perspective to On Nutrition. The American medical system relies on invasive procedures and potent medication to solve today's health problems. However, more people are realizing that Western medicine alone is not enough to promote true health and well-being. The future of medicine will integrate the best of contemporary science and the healing power of nature. Lisa draws from both to create personalized recommendations that help manage disease and support optimal wellness.

Lisa graduated with her BS in Nutrition Management from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She completed Cornell University's dietetic internship and since graduating has worked at Strong Memorial Hospital providing medical nutrition therapy for both adults and children. While practicing disease-management nutrition, Lisa became increasingly aware of the importance of prevention and integrative/functional medicine. She is now working on her MS in Nutrition and Integrative Health through Maryland University of Integrative Health. When she graduates, Lisa will be one of the only registered dietitians/nutritionists in the country with this degree from an accredited integrative university.
