What's new?

Planning to lose some weight or eat more healthfully? We can help. Transitions Nutrition Consulting is owned by Marla Heller, MS, RD, who is experienced in customized nutrition plans and providing real life solutions for your nutrition concerns. A plan which is based on your specific needs, tastes, and lifestyle is important. A plan that can't be followed for the long run wastes your time and energy. Make sure you find a plan that you can really live with. Your focus should be on maintaining muscle (which burns calories) and getting rid of fat (which stores energy). Quick weight loss programs cause you to lose both fat and muscle and can lead to greater weight regain. And . . . any plan should promote health, not increase your risk of disease.

Get your individualized plan from a well-qualified registered dietitian. Check Marla's credentials. Learn about the books we recommend. A listing of dietitian-written books will help you find reliable nutrition information.
