Background

Hello, I’m Fuad (pronounced Fowad)! I’m a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with a bachelor’s degree in human nutrition and food science from Northern Colorado University. I am also a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer with eighteen years of experience in the wellness field. My mission is to empower individuals to reach their full potential through nutrition counseling and education using evidence-based nutrition and exercise science. My formal background in fitness combined with a functional approach to nutrition is the foundation to my nutrition counseling.

If you’re like most of my clients, confused and overwhelmed by the conflicting food and nutrition information, you came to the right place. Cutting through nutritional noise can be a daunting task, but you do not have to do it alone. I will assist you to develop a healthier relationship with food that is sustainable and guilt-free. The focus will be more on intuitive and mindful eating rather than on body weight and calories. Despite the name (dietitian), you will not be following a restrictive diet, instead you will learn more about nutrient-dense food vs calorie-dense for better health and optimal physical function. In my book all food is nutritious and should be celebrated not feared. The only difference is that some food has a higher nutrient profile than others.

I understand that everyone is unique in regard to their individual body type, physical abilities, health history and nutritional needs. Therefore, I will collaborate with you to create an individualized care plan that is client-centered to help you thrive physically and emotionally.

I specialize in adult and older adult weight management, sports nutrition, and all the nutrition related diseases associated with undesirable body weight. This includes pre-diabetes, diabetes, elevated blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. Furthermore, I am a Monash University trained dietitian on low FODMAP diet to manage irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other gastrointestinal disorders. In addition to my duty as a dietitian, I am also a contributing health and nutrition writer for the “The Carmel Pine Cone”, a local newspaper from where I reside in Monterey County.

I am bilingual and fluent in English and Arabic. I enjoy cooking, weight training, and traveling. I am a big fan of modern design and an avid collector of Mid-Century Modern furniture and artifacts.
