Stacia Helfand is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with practices in midtown Manhattan and East Harlem. She successfully treats all things nutrition related, including weight loss, digestive disorders, allergies, sports nutrition, disordered eating, and clinical issues.


People come to me to help them meet a nutrition goal. To lose weight. To prevent the medical issues their parents face. To stop obsessing over what they can and can’t eat. To feel better in their bodies. To fuel a running goal. To seek professional help with what, how and why they should eat to improve themselves from the inside out. It’s my job (my pleasure, really) to understand who you are and what your current food culture is, so that I can help you reach your wellness goals while respecting that you have a career, may not know how to boil water and a social life that shouldn’t suffer because you’re improving your health. My ultimate goal is to have your nutrition foundation so strong, and you so empowered in your eating that you don’t need me anymore (but please keep in touch, I love an update and a holiday card).
