Olga Afonsky, LN

Olga Afonsky is a licensed nutritionist (LN) who uses the healing qualities of foods and lifestyle changes to help her clients lose weight, regulate blood sugar and improve digestion.

After assessing your current state of health and diet Olga will help you set your health goals and figure out specific lifestyle changes and food choices that should bring you to your goals. When she makes a suggestion she always explains why and how it’s is going to help your body. She engages you in creating your plan in a way that at the end of a consultation you have a program tailor-made just for you. She prefers working on changing your eating habits vs putting you on a restrictive diet. She will motivate and encourage you until you are comfortable and happy with your new eating style and have reached your health goals.

Olga believes that the body has an amazing ability to self-heal if we provide it with the right conditions. And REAL food is one of those conditions! Food can be nourishing and it can supply us with all that we need for optimal health. Food can also be used as medicine if we are not in optimal health.

Olga holds an MS degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health. You can learn more about Olga, read her article and try out her healthy recipes by visiting www.food-remedies.com.

“I should open by saying Olga helped me lose forty pounds. My blood sugar, which was borderline diabetes, and blood pressure, which was borderline hypertension, are both now within normal range with no meds. I can’t recommend Olga more highly. If I could give eleven starts, I would. Olga met with my wife and me a year ago. She listened to our individual situations and needs and designed nutritional programs custom-fit for each of us. I was impressed with Olga’s scientific knowledge, which incorporates the latest research at the molecular level. Olga’s plan helped me lose the weight and it’s helping me maintain it. I love her recipes on food-remedies.com and have made several of them. If you are looking to lose weight and/or to improve your nutrition and gut health, do yourself a favor and see Olga.”

“I have seen Olga for nutrition assistance to lower my hemoglobin A1c and also took the Restart class with her. It has been a wakeup call for me and changed my eating habits for the better. I continue to implement the lessons learned during the course and feel great as a result. All of my stomach issues and inflammatory symptoms have subsided since I have removed unnecessary carbs from my diet. I am grateful for her assistance. One great thing about her is that as a nutritionist, it’s about baby steps to reach the goal, not about totally eliminating things you enjoy from your diet.”
