Dina Garcia, Owner of Vida Nutrition
After overcoming my struggle with weight and prediabetes I have developed a true passion for helping others live the healthy, happy, energetic lives they deserve.
As a dietitian-nutritionist and mindful eating coach, I strive to help you create balance in your life and diet so you don’t have to over think what you should eat. I believe a healthy lifestyle should alleviate stress not create more.
My customized programs are not a short term fix but rather a long term solution. I offer nutrition coaching, via a web or in-person, as well as grocery store tours, interactive workshops, and corporate wellness programs. Please know that I am committed to YOUR long-term success. Are you ready to STOP dieting and START LIVING? Join me at Vida Nutrition, LLC to work on creating a balanced, less stressful, healthy lifestyle.
I recognize that motivation is something we ALL need on a daily basis. I also know that many people benefit from belonging to a supportive community of like-minded people. I hope that you will join my free online community Eat-Play-Love Yourself Healthy You will get daily motivation and support from other group members, have direct access to ask me questions and be able to participate in the groups monthly Simple Changes BIG Results Challenge.
I have been a Registered Dietitian since 2005. I believe in a holistic, food first, client-centered approach to nutrition which has allowed me to help countless clients lose weight and live a happier healthier life. I understand that every individual has different needs and I really take the time to listen to you so I can help you achieve YOUR goals. I have extensive experience with weight loss, pre-diabetes, diabetes, renal (kidney) disease, pregnancy, lactation and more.
I completed an undergraduate B.S. in Dietetics from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and then went on to complete my supervised practice at California State University, Fresno in Fresno, California. I founded Vida Nutrition, LLC in 2012, after 7 years of working as a clinical dietitian.
In addition to being a Dietitian Nutritionist, I am also married to my loving husband, Tony, and we have 2 beautiful children Anthony and Adalyn. When I’m not busy chasing them around or attending back to back birthday parties I enjoy spending time at the beach (living in Miami has a few advantages), hiking, biking, meditating, going to the gym, and vegging out on the couch with my DVR, a beer and a bag of pretzels or popcorn. Hey! It’s about balance.
