Personalized Nutrition for Sustainable Weight Loss

Get off the dieting rollercoaster and lose weight for good

I help people who want to get off the dieting rollercoaster and lose weight for good. Together we create a personalized plan that’s enjoyable, sustainable and enables you to change your eating habits. I combine nutrition science with coaching to support the physical and emotional aspect of your weight loss journey.

Weight loss Process

Food

We start by assessing your current eating style. Typically, we make adjustments in the macronutrient composition of your meals and how often you eat. Usually, there is a need to address the quality of your food. You also might work on reconnecting with your hunger signals. As a result, your weight starts melting away!

Environment

Although we don't always control our environment there is a lot we can do to make it more supportive of our goals. For instance, not eating in front of the TV or computer and putting foods out of sight are two small steps with big consequences. There are thousands of tricks and hacks to try to get you closer to your goal.

Get Started
Mindset

You adopt an attitude of curiosity and kindness and talk to yourself the way you talk to a friend. This allows you to honor your preferences, build confidence and learn from your mistakes. Then you learn new ways to respond to stress and cravings. Practicing these new behaviors builds habits that will replace the old ones. 

Meet Olga Afonsky

As a board-certified clinical nutritionist I work in Washington DC and virtually by video conference all over the country. Most of all I love connecting with my clients and supporting them on their weight loss journey. I use my coaching skills to help them develop healthy eating habits that allow consistent weight loss. As a result, my clients stop dieting and start creating the life of their dream. As they transform the way of communicating with themselves and learn many self-care skills they get freedom from cravings and establish a friendly relationship with food and their own body.

I also collaborate with an integrative medical practice called Restorative Health.

Kind words from my clients

Olga Afonsky has been my nutritionist for about a year now. I'm learning so much from her. She is professional and very knowledgeable about food and body chemistry. In addition, she listens and incorporates your personal lifestyle habits and dietary needs. She is creative in helping you establish a nutritional food plan that helps support you reach your health and nutritional goals. I recommend her highly.

I should open by saying Olga helped me lose forty pounds. My blood sugar, which was borderline diabetes, and blood pressure, which was borderline hypertension, are both now within normal range with no meds. I can’t recommend Olga more highly.

Olga is a very knowledgeable nutritionist. I know A LOT about nutrition from a scientific degree and interest and she taught me so much. She's also supportive and has a focus on sustainability while providing guidance. I would recommend her to anyone especially folks interested in low carb/keto though she could provide any eating style guidance as well. Highly recommend!

Wow, Ms Afonsky was absolutely the best person to speak to about my sugar addiction/weight gain issues. She listened like a friend and gave advice like a wise nutritionist. Ms. Afonsky helped me pinpoint the underlying reasons for my constant sugar cravings and how to avoid them. I am happy to say that 7 days after meeting with Ms. Afonsky, I lost a solid 5 pounds. Incredible right? She's just that good. Thank you Ms Afonsky
