Having Trouble Finding Balance?

You’re Not Alone. We’re Here to Help!

We talk about nutrition in a way that most people have never heard before. Our emphasis goes way beyond calories and macro-nutrients. We help people explore the profound impact that food has on the brain, the gut, and the endocrine system (hormones). 

We are behavioral health nutritionists, recognizing the challenges faced when attempting to make lasting health changes. We will help you on the path to a new way of life. If you struggle with food and/or body image, Nutrition in Recovery is the program for you. We will show you how to navigate the tricky food terrain with confidence. There is no “one size fits all” approach to recovery.

About Nutrition in Recovery

Founder, David Wiss

David Wiss, MS, RDN, CPT, grew up in Los Angeles, graduating from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science. He earned a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at California State University, Northridge, and completed training to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).

His Master’s Thesis “Nutrition and Substance Abuse” was a multisite and multidisciplinary investigation into the special needs of persons in recovery within the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System.

In addition to being a dedicated clinician, Mr. Wiss is a researcher, currently finishing up his PhD in Public Health from the University of California, Los Angeles. His research is focused on early life adversity, specifically how trauma can impact mental health and eating behaviors over the life course. David merges the latest data into his clinical practice, and loves to share research findings with his patients.
