I’ve seen two dietitians at Culina Health through my pregnancy and postpartum, including Hilary. The approach has been gentle, supportive, realistic and effective. I look forward to my sessions and have learned a lot.

What our patients say

"After 9 months of working with my dietitian, I am 25 pounds lighter and have kept it off."

I wanted to lose weight, but more importantly, I wanted to figure out what works for me to maintain it. About 9 months after working with my dietitian, I am 25 pounds lighter and have kept it off for about 4 months - a really impressive achievement for me! I am also more active and don't feel like I am dieting or "watching what I eat" - this is just my lifestyle. I've most valued having my RD as a partner in my health.

Marina L.

“After trying paleo, Whole30, and Noom without success, I’ve now lost over 15 pounds with my dietitian, and my heartburn has stopped.”

My dietitian helped me figure out things like eating intentions when traveling, pre-workout meals, how to address high cholesterol, and determining a supplement routine, among other things. The one quality I most appreciate is her encouragement, reminders to give myself grace when facing challenges, and celebrating successes even when small. I feel much happier and healthier.

Kevyn D.

“To date I’ve dropped my A1C from a 9 to a 5.4 (and lost almost 60 lbs in the process)!”

When I first met my dietitian, I was struggling to keep my sugar levels in check and making bad decisions despite my best intentions. Yes, she was able to create a program that matched my goals but, more importantly, she was able to integrate good nutrition into my existing lifestyle rather than changing it completely. Working with my dietitian has truly changed my attitude toward nutrition.

Group session participants love to encourage and be encouraged by others as they work towards their health goals. Please note that this program is not suitable for individuals with an eating disorder diagnosis.

What is the benefit of group sessions?

How many people will be in the group?

Who will be leading the sessions?

Each group session is led by a qualified, experienced registered dietitian specializing in that topic. Each group session leader is selected through an internal application process, and leads the creation of the group session curriculum.

Can I sign up for a drop-in session?

Drop-ins will not be available. Collaboration and community-building are at the core of group sessions, so it’s important to keep a consistent group from week to week. In addition, the curriculum is designed for participants who are able to attend each week and build on their skills and knowledge.

What happens if I miss a session?

Patients will have access to materials for missed sessions; however, weekly meetings will not be recorded to protect patient privacy. There will be no replacement sessions or refunds for missed sessions.
