Dana James, MS, CNS, CDN, is a triple board certified nutritionist and is trained in nutrition biochemistry, functional medicine and cognitive behavioral therapy. She is the founder of Food Coach NYC, a nutritional therapy practice based in Manhattan. Dana believes that every woman has the ability to live the life they truly want to be living but what holds many women back is their relationship to food. Her goal is to clear the misconceptions and mind clutter around food so women can transform their relationship with food (and themselves) into one that is nourishing, kind and compassionate.
Dana graduated summa cum laude from Europe’s most prestigious nutrition institute, the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, United Kingdom. Her initial nutrition training was at the Brain Bio Centre, London, an outpatient facility specializing in depression and addiction. It was there that she witnessed how powerful food and nutrients can be in moderating brain chemistry, mood and behavior. She incorporates these learnings into her current practice today.
In addition to her one-one consulting, Dana also runs workshops that help women over-come body image issues and self sabotaging behaviors.
Dana is also the principal nutritionist at the anti-aging clinic, PhysioAge, New York. She is part of the ‘Cleanse’ health team which educates young models on how to eat right for success and longevity in the fashion industry.
Dana’s extensive nutrition knowledge combined with her humorous approach to nutrition makes her a frequent contributor to the PIX 11 news and the Dr Steve Show. She has also appeared on the Today Show, GMA and the Martha Stewart Living Show. Click here for a sampling of her recent work.
