I Know That You Are…
- You are busy… I get it!
- By the time you fight your way through traffic, at the end of the day, you’re starving and don’t want to cook a healthy dinner… I get it!
- You’re too tired or don’t have the time to workout… I get it!
- Some days it can be a struggle to get a decent lunch… I get it!
Hi, I’m Dina Garcia, founder of Vida Nutrition, LLC.
I struggle with all these things too. I used to be overweight and pre-diabetic (I seriously have terrible genes). But rather than make excuses for why I couldn’t eat healthily and move more I found practical, time-free solutions that allowed me to lose the weight and keep it off through 2 pregnancies.*
I can’t wait to get to know you, hear your unique story and help you build a healthy future. Check out the nutrition and weight loss-services I offer in my Miami office.
Weight Loss / Wellness Coaching
Coaching is less about “being on a diet” and more about living without limits, so you can create healthy habits that fit into everyday life. In order to help you create habits that stick, I use a 3 phase process to overhaul your eating…
Medical Nutrition Therapy: Struggling with a specific disease/condition and need science-based nutrition advice? I am not a catch-all dietitian (and don’t want to be) but here is a list of conditions that I treat and have extensive experience with chronic kidney disease, GERD/reflux, diabetes, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, pre/post natal, and lactation.
Pre/ Post-Bariatric Surgery Consultations: Are you preparing to have bariatric surgery? It’s not uncommon that your surgeon and/or your insurance company will require that you meet with a dietitian before approving your surgery. With a non-judgmental and open heart, I will take the time to get to know you and the struggles you’ve had with your weight. This is important to me because I want to make sure that you are ready for surgery and to decrease the likeliness that you will gain the weight back.
Metabolic Testing: Are you curious if your metabolism could be holding you back from successful weight management? Using the FDA approved MedGem® I can more accurately determine how many calories you burn per day vs a traditional calculation, app, or fitness band. Single test- $179; additional tests- $95; if you are already a client of mine – $95
Nutrition Talks: Want to work with me but time or money is an issue? Talk to your HR department about having me do a lunch ‘n learn where you work. I can do a 1-time event or work with your HR team to develop a long-term program. Learn more about different corporate wellness talks and programs that I have to offer.
