Robyn works with the non-diet approach in helping her clients become connected to “physical” hunger vs. “mouth” hunger.
This approach is also known as Intuitive Eating. Reconnect and restore your innate ability to self regulate your eating and nutrition without having diet rules, guilt, shame and judgement after eating.
The goal of intuitive eating is to be able to tap into an inner knowing of what, when and how much to eat for a person at any given time, with being able to be spontaneous or having any conscious reasoning. The body always knows what it needs for nourishment, but these signals somehow have become lost and we have to relearn how to reorient ourselves to what our body tells us instead of what others tell us what we should or should not eat.
Robyn helps clients clarify misconceptions around all foods and food groups. She is able to help you create a road map. Her goals encompass how to include food choices that “feed” your body and soul.
Robyn evaluates all pertinent blood laboratory values, movement regimen and dietary preferences, all on an individual basis.
Press Kit Bio
Anyone can claim the title “nutritionist” without regard to what qualifications they may possess. However, there are those who have amassed the education and practical experience to truly merit the title: Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Robyn Goldberg is an outstanding member of the latter group. An RDN who earned her degree in dietetics at California State University Northridge. Goldberg has gone on to private practice in Beverly Hills as well as inpatient clinical practice at the world-renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Inspired by her desire to provide long-term nutritional solutions for her patients, Goldberg was motivated early on by the chronic condition of a close family member who suffered from coronary artery disease and her own desire as an athlete to optimize her nutrition. She recognized that long term health can be established by changing one’s relationship with food and their body. Goldberg now applies that philosophy to her patients, treating them with a combination of individualized therapeutic diets, fitness regimens and compassionate counseling.
“All of my work is individualized to each person,” Goldberg says, I approach it from a nondiet perspective and help my clients achieve satisfaction and pleasure with food and themselves again.”
Using medical nutrition therapy, support and motivation, Goldberg addresses the conditions of diabetes mellitus, coronary artery disease, hypertension, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney and liver malfunctions, obesity, eating disorders and disordered eating. Her skill in helping alleviate these challenges has been duly recognized by her colleagues, as Cedars-Sinai Cardiologist Mark K. Urman, M.D., F.A.C.C. notes:
“Robyn’s nutritional counseling has brought a whole new dimension to my practice. Her practical and individualized advice has been beyond helpful, and the patients have truly made progress they were unable to achieve in the past.”
Goldberg’s healthful endeavors extend outside of the clinical setting as well. She serves as a Nutrition Consultant for the Celiac Disease Foundation as well as an Advisory Board Member for the Healthy Dining Restaurant Guide. She has contributed articles to enutrition.com and addictionsolutions.com and her specialized classes, conducted for the Motion Picture Wellness Program, Universal Pictures, and other private and public institutions, regularly sell out.
“Over the last thirteen years of working with Robyn, she has been able to help my patients achieve their goals. She is a wonderful communicator, is able to work with the most challenging patients, and best of all my patients all love her,” endorses Lyle Kurtz, M.D. “She has successfully taught patients how to develop new eating habits and to not fear food, resulting in the ability to live their lives to the fullest.”
From clinic to classroom, Goldberg is that rare combination of articulate expert and telegenic personality that makes her a sought-after commentator, educator and writer. Goldberg is a nutrition therapist who has truly earned the credentials and compassion to truly make a difference in her patients lives.
