Nutrition In Recovery

Experts at Bridging the Gap Between Physical and Mental Health

Founded in 2012 by Dr. David Wiss

Expert Dietitian Nutritionists for Eating Disorders and Mental Health

Nutrition in Recovery promotes physical and nutritional wellness as primary components of recovery from behavioral health challenges. We are a team of specialized registered dietitian nutritionists who work with challenging cases as well as help many people who do not identify as being “in recovery.”

We believe in the functional medicine approach, which considers the entire dimension of wellness. Our work is “trauma-informed” as well as culturally sensitive, using an integrative biopsychosocial approach. If you have been looking for expertise in nutrition, you’re in the right place! Do not hesitate to contact us with questions. Nutrition in Recovery founder Dr. David Wiss, RDN, has another site at Wise Mind Nutrition with additional Nutrition and Mental Health information and a free app.

Hear From Our Clients!

We work with clients from all over the country with various needs around nutrition and health.

Working with David Wiss was one of the most powerful experiences of my life concerning physical health. It has been about a year now since we first met and I can sit here and tell you about the weight loss I’ve had (which has been significant) but that is not what I got from David. What I received was much much greater and more profound. What a I truly got from David was rehabilitation from a decades long unhealthy relationship with food and body image.”

– Nick F. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“David is very easy to talk with; always encouraging, never critical or judgmental. I looked forward to each of our sessions. In small, incremental doses, he gave me a ton of practical, helpful information I had never before considered. I cannot recommend working with David enough!”

– Gina Maria C. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“With a full-time job, it is very difficult to prioritize my eating and nutrition. I have always ate at restaurants and never learned how to prepare my own food. David made it easy for me to begin planning my snacks and before I knew it, I was trying one of his smoothie recipes. David spent a session with me going aisle-to-aisle in the grocery store and helping me feel more confident in the supermarket and in the kitchen. My blood sugar is finally stable and I have lost 15 lbs. My doctor was very happy with my new numbers!

– David S. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
