After two pregnancies and a history of emotional eating, the pounds really tack on over time. Dorothy has given me the tools I need to make healthier eating choices, even in seemingly impossible situations.

She's more than a nutritionist; she's a counselor for what is underneath the problem. Once I began utilizing her suggestions and making the choices she recommended, my health has improved greatly. I no longer need high blood pressure medication and since July of 2015, I am down 32 pounds... AND I HAVE KEPT IT OFF!

If you're serious about being the best version of yourself and need some gentle, but effective and compassionate advice from a knowledgeable expert, Dorothy Bernard IS YOUR NUTRITIONIST!

Love yourself enough to invest in your future with her guiding you to make better choices in your diet!
I am a healthy eater and consumer and know more than the average bird about nutrition. But having gained a lot of weight from medication for my chronic autoimmune disorder, I had plateau'd and needed an expert's help. You'd think that would be easy enough to find in Los Angeles, right? Wrong. I found a million people who call themselves nutritionists who are skinny and give you the standard "don't eat carbs" routine. Thanks, I already knew that. I found another million who say "You have to work out, let me put you through your paces in my personal training business." Upselling bugs me. And I found another million who CLAIM to have understanding of medical conditions, but when you arrive for the appointment and get to your specific condition, they say that they once treated a person with fibromyalgia. Sorry for the person but not at all helpful for me. So I had more or less given up but an integrative physician referred me to Dorothy and she has been great. She is honest without being condescending or making you feel self-conscious about anything, not your weight, appearance, level of fitness, good or bad choices you have made up until that moment. She has given me real tools, real goals, and reasonable expectations. Although she offers a wide range of services and testing, there was absolutely no upselling or pressure. Dorothy impressed me with her vast knowledge of medical conditions and different lifestyles. I am extremely happy with Dorothy and plan to work with her for a long time.
