Bio
Lori F. Lieberman, RD, MPH, CDE, LDN, nutrition consultant is the owner of Lori Lieberman & Associates, LLC, a practice of 3 RDs covering eating disorders and disordered eating, diabetes management, GI issues, pediatric and prenatal nutrition, to name a few. I have a passion for cooking and eating, hiking and biking, and travel, as well as hanging out with my husband of 25 years, my two awesome sons and my whippet. I have a BA in Biology from Brown University and a MPH in Nutrition from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, School of Public Health. I have also been a CDE (certified diabetes educator for over 10 years). My practice has been serving the greater Boston area since 1989. I have spoken publicly to audiences large and small, lay and professional on everything from eating disorders to Parkinson's Disease. And now I've entered the rather obsessive world of blogging. I started this blog in May, 2010 and have truly enjoyed sharing with readers all over the world. Hope you find the perspectives and information refreshing!

Confessions of a Dietitian

I dislike the word dietitian. It conjures up images, based on my experience, of unfit, overweight food service professionals, located in hospital basements, counting and creating rigid meal plans for their patients to follow. But to break that stereotype, I’ll share an awesome blog I just stumRead full post »

Oh, Michelle, I so appreciate your honest and passionate concern for improving the health of our nation, particularly our kids. Really I do! But quite frankly, the subtle messages conveyed through the new USDA My Plate set us way back in our progress.

Tony the Tiger of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes fame


Ban Aunt Jemima? That’s just fine. Her image is not politically correct (and I’ve always preferred homemade pancakes and real maple syrup anyway). Joe Camel, as cigarette promoter, I am glad became extinct. But must we bury Betty

Eat the candy. Break the rules! 


Halloween candy doesn’t have to be scary. That is, if candy and sweets aren’t viewed as evil. We never called it junk food in my house. Junk food, by definition is high in calories and low in nutritional value. And while

I didn’t eat, or drink for 25 hours, from 5:45 Friday night to 6:45 PM Saturday.  No, I haven’t lost my mind or my sensibility. And there’s no need to worry about me. I did it because it is my family’s tradition to fast, a complete fast, on

But food and eating and Judaism seem inseparable, and so my thoughts turned to Drop It and Eat, the blog I write, best summarized by its life’s-too-short-to-diet approach to eating… Read full post »
