But we regularly turn to Valerie, who has a commanding ability to translate the latest research into clear, concise, surprising advice for everyday application.” Check out Paul Kita at Men’s Health

Valerie Goldstein is an enthusiastic representative of whatever she is most passionate about. I’ve worked with her in the field of nutrition, diet, and health and I can personally attest to the fact that she takes ownership of the knowledge she possesses in this area and makes people feel like they are a part of something much bigger than themselves in the way she presents the information. A gifted communicator and tireless researcher into the content she provides, Valerie is an invaluable asset to anyone looking for a leader who is unafraid to take charge and make things happen.

Client Testimonials:

“Valerie is an excellent nutritionist. She combines knowledge and compassion to create an effective nutritional plan. She’s flexible and responsive, providing the needed support to stick to your nutritional plan.  She creates motivation, working with your unique needs, to improve your health and nutrition goals.”

Julio L.

“We have fit bits, calorie counters and even virtual dietitians all designed to improve our diet experience.  All of that is great, as long as you want to continue to have dependency.  What Valerie offers you and delivers is 100%  independency.

How? Well she is extremely knowledgeable, yet is still a student of the game, very easy to confide in, yet will hold you accountable for your actions and non-actions.  She asked me all the right questions, did her own due diligence to get a holistic view of my health and sports performance needs and prepared an individualized plan that was unique for me.
The eating plan was targeted to improve my health matters (high blood pressure and high cholesterol) and the diet was “masked” in the sense that  I swore it would not possibly work because I enjoyed everything about it down to the timing of my meals.
In no time, I was seeing results, not just on the scale and in the mirror, but my overall health, stamina and zest for life.  Her vitamin supplement prescription had me feeling like my body received a tune up.  My sports performance was better than ever.
Valerie was not my first dietitian, but it was certainly the first time I connected with a dietitian on so many levels.  The program was easy to follow, fun to do, and impactful beyond my expectations.  Valerie has intangibles that you just can quantity, and a conviction that is contagious.  If there ever was a dietitian whisperer… Valerie is IT!

Cathy M.

“Valerie worked with me “under my conditions”, making weekly appointments for discussions over the phone. I would keep a log of my eating and drinking, my exercise and my moods and email these to Valerie before our telephone appointment. Valerie offered helpful suggestions on tailoring a nutrition plan for me and my lifestyle. There was mutual respect which helped me greatly as I moved forward. I would highly recommend Valerie to anyone seeking help with nutritional concerns.”

Suzanne H.

“After 1 week I lost eight pounds. Valerie’s diet was easy to do, and she is brilliant. She will find the issue you are struggling with and help get you on the right path–painlessly. She even saved me a lot of time, I no longer have to cook tons of different recipes and buy tons of hard-to-find foods in order to get the weight off. And she helped me recognize where I was sabotaging myself.”
