Dr. Lisa Young, PhD RD CDN

Do you want to lose weight, eat healthier, and feel better? Yes, it is possible. I am an internationally recognized registered dietitian nutritionist, adjunct professor at NYU, and author of the popular book The Portion Teller Plan (Random House). I counsel adults, children and families on weight loss, a range of medical nutrition issues, and behavior modification. I design individualized programs unique to YOU based on your health and medical needs, lifestyle, and preferences. As a seasoned professional, I focus on a whole person approach, integrating mind, body and spirit. You will easily relate to my personable and upbeat style.

You are in good hands. I have 20+ yrs experience plus additional qualifications than most nutritionists. I hold a PhD in nutrition, am a published author, have conducted research at prestigious medical centers, and consulted for various weight management programs . And best of all, you will not feel deprived or hungry working with me.

I am available for private nutrition counseling sessions, group classes, family nutrition plans, corporate wellness programs, lectures, media interviews, and more. Widely considered a portion-size expert, I lecture internationally, and am regularly featured in the media as an expert voice on nutrition. I was named "Woman of Action" by Israel Cancer Research Fund.
