Leah Silberman is a firm believer that our genes may hold the blueprint of our health, but they’re not our destiny. In other words, just because a certain medical condition runs in your family, doesn’t mean it is certain that you will develop it too!

Prevention Is Key
When Leah was a little girl and her mother would prepare steamed vegetables for dinner, she used to ask her to set aside the water from the steam so she could drink the cocktail of nutrients that would leak from the veggies.
It’s fair to say that Leah Silberman been fascinated by nutrition from a young age. She’s driven by prevention – the fact that the food we eat has the power to manipulate our genes and prevent certain chronic complications from occurring in the first place. She believes food does far more than just provide calories, but rather provides information to our cells and allows our bodies to function optimally… if we eat well!
After receiving her undergraduate degree in dietetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, completing her dietetic internship at Montefiore Medical Center, and her master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition at NYU in 2014, Leah Silberman began to practice privately, seeing clients from all over the country. She realized very quickly that weight loss often came hand-in-hand with my healthy eating approach, once solely intended for disease prevention or management.
In today’s social-media-centric world it’s easy to get lost in the sea of diet fads and wacky fitness regimes. The good news is that nutrition doesn’t have to be ultra-complicated… and you don’t have to quit your day job to become a top chef to eat healthy either. Whether you find yourself constantly on-the-go, or constantly in the kitchen, there is a sustainable solution to wellness that works for you, and it’s her job to guide you to it.
