American College of Nutrition Certified Nutrition Specialist | Author | Professor of Nutrition


  • Denise Canellos Nutritionist

Eating to feel better can be simple, easy, delicious and most important, effective.

Healthy food should taste good, not like cardboard. And it should be as simple to prepare as you like it to be. I have taught hundreds of people how to make this happen, and I can teach you too.

I can help you.

Nutritional information was so confusing to me after being diagnosed and starting treatment for ovarian cancer. I was nervous about speaking with Denise because I didn’t want to feel even more confused. I’m so glad that we worked together though because Denise really cleared the clouds for me with great kindness and compassion. Even more importantly, she helped me understand the baby steps that could improve my nutrition and immune system while I’m in treatment. She’s a treasure of resources without being overwhelming. I never imagined that cancer could introduce me to “good things” but Denise certainly is a great thing in my book. If you’ve been diagnosed or know someone who has, connect with Denise! — Laurie Foley

How does consulting with a Nutritionist work?

It is easy. We set up an appointment, we talk about your diagnosis or health challenges, lifestyle, what you like to eat, and what concerns you have. We set achievable goals, and figure out the first steps to take to get you there.

You will understand exactly what will help you the most, and why. You will know what foods to be sure and include in your meals, and what to be sure and avoid, for your health. No fad diets, no nit-picky rules, just solid science that is proven to work.

Then we follow up, at your pace (although I may nudge you a bit), and set the next few steps to take.

I will answer your questions and give you the support you need.

We will turn “I guess I have to do this” into “I’m so glad I did this!”
