Hi - I’m Christine and I am a GI-expert Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, the Co-Founder of Amenta Nutrition, and I LOVE food. I provide evidence-based nutrition counseling to both individuals and companies and I thrive on clarifying nutrition misinformation.
The reason why I changed my career is based on my own personal experience. I had belly distress. As someone who has suffered from belly discomfort, changed her diet and alleviated her symptoms, I understand the power that food can have on one's well being and quality of life.
This experience encouraged me to attend graduate school at Hunter College where I received my Masters of Science in Nutrition.
I have since engaged in extensive training in gastrointestinal nutrition and attended many digestive disease conferences so that I have all the tools necessary to help clients rid themselves of belly (and intestinal) distress. I am a committee member of the Dietitians in Gut-Brain Disorders Workgroup and a Monash University low- FODMAP diet trained dietitian. I also have a Certificate of Training in Obesity for Adults.
“Nutrients from foods are the sources of an individual’s energy and are responsible for that individual’s growth, health, and good condition. “
Hello, I’m April, and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and New York Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist. As co-founder of Amenta Nutrition, I provide medical nutrition therapy for conditions such as IBS, constipation, SIBO, and other digestive disorders as well as general nutritional counseling.
I did not take the traditional path to become a dietitian. As a model since the age of 14, I lived in several countries, and have been fortunate to work with some of the biggest names in fashion.
It resulted in my having a negative relationship with food. I would barely eat or try the latest fad diets that I read about in magazines to try and achieve what I believed was my idea of perfection
My relationship with food began to heal when I started to work as an assistant to a celebrity chef. I realized that food was a source of nourishment for the body and became a certified health coach. After coaching others, I quickly realized that I did not have the scientific knowledge nor the counseling background to have the greatest possible impact on others.
“I believe in using science-based information to create an individualized plan that will empower my patients and allow them to reach their goals.“
