Emily Buchholtz, RD, CDN
Emily has been passionate about nutrition for as long as she can remember. As a child, she was overweight, and for a long time she was unaware of the potential for long-term health consequences. Fortunately, she was able to successfully lose weight and keep it off. Through her tough weight loss journey Emily was able to understand and prioritize healthy habits that she continues to use. She received her Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Indiana University and later went on to complete her Dietetic Internship through the Northwell Health System. While working as a clinical dietitian, she has become fluent in proper medical nutrition therapy for serious and chronic illnesses. She possesses a strong sense of empathy, which helps to foster close relationships with her clients. Working in a clinical setting has given her a strong foundation of the medical aspect of nutrition that she now uses to work one-on-one with clients.
Emily specializes in weight loss, diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, Pre-DM), eating disorders/emotional eating, cardiovascular issues (heart disease, cholesterol, triglycerides, high blood pressure), gastrointestinal disorders (IBS, IBD, SIBO), and cancer treatment.
She believes that food is the foundation of many social situations and family gatherings; therefore it is essential to develop a good relationship with it. She tries to teach her clients that food is a lifestyle and everything is okay in moderation. She does not believe in crash dieting.
She is an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Oncology Practice Group, and ASPEN
In her spare time Emily enjoys staying active by taking cycling and boxing classes and spending time with friends. On weekends she LOVES to eat out at different restaurants and explore new foods. Emily tries to make healthy choices when eating out, however realizes that indulging in treats from time to time is ok too!
