Why choose me as your nutritionist?

I understand what it is like to struggle with poor eating habits, manage stress by eating, and battle belly fat and weight gain. Before becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist, I worked in high stress jobs for nearly two decades. I dealt with stress by eating and chocolate was must have food – multiple times a day!

Lisa Garcia, MS, RDN, LD

Having also personally struggled with food sensitivities and food intolerances, I know how it can feel when eating common foods makes you uncomfortable and disrupts your life.

I also know how good it feels when you get them under control!

What makes working with me different?

My focus is on you and where you want to get to. Together we will discover the tools, techniques and approaches that work for your unique circumstances including your likes and dislikes.

Besides helping you figure out what and how much you can eat, I help you to discover ways to make it enjoyable and easy so it becomes a habit that fits into your life.

What will you NEVER get from me?

You will NEVER be judged by me. You are a unique person worthy of my respect and support.

What WILL you get from me?

You will get encouragement and support from me. Adopting new habits and letting go of old ones is a process and can take time. Sometimes old habits come back or sometimes we need to change the technique or approach. I’m here to help you. Really!

What are my qualifications?

In addition to being a registered dietitian nutritionist, I hold a master’s degree in nutrition from the University of Saint Joseph. My primary area of study involved obesity with a focus on helping women limit or avoid weight gain during midlife and after menopause.

I also hold certificate in Adult Weight Management from the Commission on Dietetic Registration and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

To better help those of us suffering with digestive and gut issues, I sought out additional training in various options for addressing food sensitivities and food intolerances including the FODMAP diet. It's an evolving field of study and I stay on top of the research by attending national conferences, continually reading scientific studies, and through membership in a variety of professional groups.

How can you work with me?

My nutrition practice is in Laconia, New Hampshire, and many insurance plans cover in person visits to my office.

In 2018 I will start offering virtual visits via the internet and live webinars and workshops over the internet.

Who am I as a person?

What do I have a hard time resisting?  Besides chocolate? Cookbooks!  I stopped counting when I got to 352 cookbooks.

What’s my favorite food? That’s a hard one because I love so many foods.

What food do I absolutely hate? That’s easy…okra.

What makes me laugh? My cat and my husband.

What makes me sad? When people think that they can’t make changes to their eating habits and they haven’t yet tried working with me.
