in Shirley, NY |
I've been to many different nutritionist all around Long Island, its safe to say there is no place like Dr.Lara She took the time to build a customized meal plan, understand my lifestyle and inform me of all my healthy options . BEST NUTRITIONIST EVERR!
in Orient, New York 11957 |
Lara assessed life style in terms of not only diet, but physical activity (e.g., exercise), social interaction (e.g., work, play). She provided an informed platform on which to proceed -step-by-step, all of which, if not easy, very reasonable; further, the benefits of different food groups were clarified. The "take-home" material is an excellent guide.

I would Highly recommend Lara to family / friends who are looking for a professional to help them with their Dietary and nutritional needs.
Shirley, NY |
Extremely intelligent as to how to eat healthy and how the body breaksdown & uses food. Truly listens and hears what patient's goals are. She takes her time and seemed to genuinely care about struggles and answered all questions. Highly impressed and have recommended to people aleady after one visit.
in Orient Point,New York |
My daughter encouraged me to see Lara since She had started going to her. So far watching and counting calories has helped me to lose weight. I enjoy cooking so have been making a lot of her posted recipes and look up on line many more. It is very helpful to find recipes that list the calorie count for me. Lara is very encouraging and always gives me additional information too. Slowly but surely I have changed our eating habits and will stay focused on this plan.
in Southhampton, NY |
I would recommend Lara to others because it was a positive experience for me and very informative. Lara provided very specific suggestions that were practical and easy to apply to my lifestyle. I especially liked the way she considered my food preferences and gave me healthy alternatives to unhealthy choices.
in Greenport, NY |
Lara was very kind and knew her stuff!
