I’m Olga Afonsky, a weight loss nutritionist in DC.
I believe that natural, unprocessed food is the best nourishment for our body. If you would like to enjoy optimal health and stay in shape, consider investing in eating well.
The food should be delicious as well as nutritious. Therefore, I hope to bring you back to your kitchen and make cooking a fun and fulfilling process, like I know it can be. Besides, I can help you free yourself from anxiety and guilt around food choices at restaurants or grocery stores.
I consider myself an additional resource for you. You have the inner wisdom to be successful on your journey to health and ideal weight. What I bring to the process is an outside perspective, knowledge of nutrition and physiology, and a friendly voice when you need cheering up.
Kind words from my clients
I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology and another one in Nutrition and Integrative Health. I’m a Certified Nutrition Specialist practitioner (CNS), Licensed Nutritionist (LN) in DC, and Licensed Dietician Nutritionist (LDN) in MD.
Get To Know Me
I’m originally from Moscow, Russia, where I’ve met my husband, Nick. We lived together in three countries – Russia, France, and the US, and had a child in each one. Ruby, our beloved labradoodle, is the newest addition to the family.
I love gardening! So the best weekend for me is when I crawl back inside after digging in the dirt all day long. It is so rewarding to grow my food and even more fun to harvest it! I grow vegetables, berries, herbs, medicinal as well as culinary, and flowers.
I’m very much into cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. For instance, I love baking sourdough bread, fermenting and pickling, and making traditional Russian dishes like borsch. What a pleasure to gather around a table with my family and my friends!
