About Me

Lauren Bartell Weiss, Ph.D., M.Ed., CNS-S

I am passionate about nutrition and helping others achieve their health, nutrition, and weight goals. I started my educational journey at UCLA studying biology then continued with a Master of Science Degree in Nutritional Biochemistry from Tufts University, a Masters of Education in Community Nutrition and a Ph.D. in Behavioral Nutrition from Columbia University. I am a board-certified Clinical Nutrition Specialist Professional (CNS-S). I work at The University of California, San Diego as a Project Scientist and recently started a private nutrition consulting practice, specializing in the low-carb lifestyle and weight loss. I am hoping to share my passion and expertise in nutrition to educate people and help them meet their nutrition and lifestyle goals. 


I am a low-carb nutritionist and specialize in The Ketogenic Diet. I love helping people embark on and fully understand the amazing Keto Lifestyle! Though my primary focus is The Keto Diet, I do offer consulting services for other low-carb eating plans that can help with a variety of health-related conditions. 


What is a CNS-S?

Behavioral Nutrition

Behavioral nutrition is the combination of psychology and nutrition. Nutrition research shows that long-term and lasting changes in dietary behavior need to incorporate both nutrition knowledge/education and behavior modification techniques such as goal setting, weighing pros and cons, identifying barriers to change, and self-confidence building. My approach to nutrition education is unique in that I include all of these important components into my educational programs. This helps increase the chances of a successful long-term dietary behavior change. Changing food behaviors is not an easy process. The key to maintaining dietary goals is to try new techniques and find ways to stay motivated.  This behavioral component is what sets me apart from most other nutrition professionals.
