“I was lucky enough to be referred to Marina through a dietician at Hoag Hospitial. I had to start a plant based lifestyle and I was very confused on many aspects of this. I spoke with Marina and she was able to help me navigate this so much better. She is very knowledgeable, helpful, and she really cares about your health. As I continue to work with Marina, I am learning so much and I highly recommend her.”

Your Nutrition Journey With Straightforward, Personalized Nutrition Advice

A visit to the doctor or a family member’s diagnosis has raised concerns about managing your prediabetes, Type 2 diabetes, or your risk of developing diabetes.

There is so much confusion about carbs and diabetes – should you eat them? How much can you eat? What’s the difference between carbs and sugar?

But you’re either given too much or too little information. And what you find is often contradictory or doesn’t make sense for your lifestyle.

Working together, I can help you develop a personalized plan to help you live confidently and regain control of your health.

If you need ongoing support, I’ll monitor your progress at these sessions, address your concerns, and adjust the diet plan as needed. These extended follow-up consultations are perfect for more complex nutrition challenges, your first follow-up after your initial consultation, or if we’ve not connected for a while.

Virtual or by phone

If you cannot meet virtually or by phone or are too unwell, I can come and have a consultation in your home. We can go into your kitchen and you can show me what’s confusing you – and get exactly the support, information and answers you’re looking for. 75-minute home consultations.

How long before I see results? and other questions you might have

While everyone’s body responds differently, many clients start noticing positive changes within a few days or weeks of following the tailored nutrition plan, depending on your medical condition and the diet recommended.
My aim is balance, not deprivation. We’ll find ways to incorporate your favorites while ensuring they align with your health goals.
Yes, I will be able to give you more specific and tailored information if you’re able to bring this with you. Please have available at our appointment your physical and medical history, blood work and any other medical reports you have.
This varies depending on individual needs. After our initial consultation, we’ll design a schedule that suits you.
Any decisions about medications should be made with your doctor. My plan will complement your medical advice and, in some cases, may lead to reduced medication or dosage with a doctor’s approval.
I specialize in providing advice tailored to individual needs, even when managing multiple health conditions. Your plan will be crafted to address all your concerns.

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert. They can also be referred to as Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN). A Registered Dietitian provides evidence-based medical nutrition therapy and nutritional counseling. An RD can help treat illnesses with medical nutrition therapy. Furthermore, RD can guide a lifestyle to prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, by providing medical nutrition therapy.

Anyone with a passion for food can refer to themselves as a nutritionist. Nutritionists can’t report back to your doctor, can’t recommend blood work, and may not be aware of the details of your medical condition. And, they aren’t qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy for medical conditions.
