"I started seeing Robin to help me better prepare for marathon training. Since working with her, I have benefited from her holistic approach to nutrition and mindfulness. She has tremendously helped me to ensure my nutrition was adapted to my training and running. She has also giving me the tools and advice to be more self-aware and better connected to my overall well-being. I have experienced tremendous positive changes since I started seeing Robin."
-L. Burki - Miami, FL
"I was puzzled about my body for a long time; couldn’t figure out why my stomach was looking and feeling bloated all the time even after eating a salad! I was very frustrated. I'm very picky when it comes to my health (since I work in healthcare) and I knew I wanted a holistic approach. I did not want a quick fix; I wanted a long-term solution. Robin was able to evaluate me quickly and got straight to the point, which I appreciated. After learning that I wasn’t getting enough fiber daily, she helped me form a morning routine to kick start my day to fight the bloat ( I still use this everyday!) I liked that she gave me a lot of variations since I am a commuter and work long hours. I even went on vacation and chose 2 out of 3 of the meals with better insight using my toolbox she provided (saving the goods for only special or outstanding treats).I realized half of the time I was eating crap that I didn’t even like or felt I could cook better at home! I needed that push to be more MINDFUL and to coach me mentally. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to hear the truth!"
D. Ciano - Jersey City, NJ
"I have never met anyone as passionate about her job as Robin is. She truly cares and wants you to be successful. Her holistic approach is exactly what I needed. She helped me understand that the changes I needed to make were not only about the food I was eating, but how I was living my life. I lost a lot of weight and feel so much better about myself. I would not have been able to accomplish this without her help. She is the best!"
B. Sarduy - Mooreseville, SC
"Dealing with cancer and its treatments is all consuming. Between the emotional toll, the side effects and still keeping up with the household it is a journey that takes time, patience and professional support. My biggest challenge was to find a way to continue eating healthy while dealing with distorted sense of smell and taste and being extremely nauseated. I was referred to Robin by a friend and am so grateful for Robin’s knowledge, her straightforward attitude and her holistic approach. With Robin’s guidance, I was able to find foods I could tolerate and build upon. She recommended the highest quality brands and how to prepare myself decent meals. We discussed different ways for me to not only nourish myself, but also get what I need during the day, like lots of rest. Going through chemo being more well nourished helped me to bounce back between rounds of treatment. Nourishing my body and my soul was what I was after and it proved to be what I needed as well."
S. Reuveni-Ullrich - Chestnut Ridge, NY
"With a somewhat dismal, genetic blueprint, I had been seeking an alternative way to eat that would result in a healthier future and weight loss. I not only wanted to look better but also feel better with a goal of avoiding the medical conditions that plagued my parents and grandparents. Robin approached my situation in an integrated manner incorporating my mind, body, and spirit. Along our journey, she provided me with unique tool boxes to address the challenges of my very busy and demanding life. Her no nonsense, pragmatic approach to holistic nutrition resonated with me in large part because she's non-judgmental and truly wants you to enjoy yourself through this lifestyle change. While the transition to healthier eating required self discovery, greater awareness, focus and effort, it is now second nature. The results speak for themselves....a significant weight loss and stellar medical results! I can't say enough about Robin's guidance. Her wellness knowledge and expertise extends beyond nutrition."
L. Reiser - Wayne, NJ
"I considered myself pretty healthy before working with Robin, but I have since realized how much better I feel. I have more energy, less bloating and no heartburn. She does a great job of tapping into the emotions and motivations in regards to your health, which has helped me become more self-aware. I now have an awareness of what I am putting in my body, why I am eating and the right tools to navigate any store, restaurant or situation. Working with Robin has not only improved my eating habits, but helped spur a lot of good change in other areas of my life. Robin will give it to you straight and give you the right tools step-by-step in order to make the changes that you want and help you to feel your best self."
A Cohen - Brooklyn, NY
"I was diagnosed with Chron's disease and tried to figure it out on my own by eliminating foods, yet nothing was getting any better and I suffered from chronic GI symptoms. It wasn't until I met Robin that I learned how to eat and take care of myself for my particular ailments. She taught me that there is a connection between my emotional state/how I deal with situations relating to stress and anxiety and what that can do to my stomach. Since working with her, I am more aware of my breathing, how and when I eat, effective communication skills and an entire toolbox of self-care. The result is that I have less stomach-related episodes, my daily life is no longer ruled by the bathroom and I feel much more in control of how I get to spend my time. She always says, ' belly and brain are entirely connected!'"
N. Darakajian - Toronto, ON
"I joined Robin's 3 Week Weight Loss Challenge and in true Robin fashion, she was honest, straightforward and gave us so much information on how to spot unhealthy ingredients that lead to weight-gain and disease. Each class was packed with invaluable knowledge, product reviews, and tools that we can follow for a lifetime. Her advice was not about losing weight as a one-time goal; she taught us tips for keeping it off and maintaining weight-loss and health for good. This woman is the real deal and doesn't ' sugar-coat' anything!"
R. Ulmer - Woodcliff Lake, NJ
"Robin has has had an integral role in my healing journey! I have struggled for many years with digestive issues, eating disorders, weight fluctuations, and stress management. When I first reached out to Robin, I expressed my goals of ‘shedding a few pounds’ and ‘managing my digestive issues’. I have gained so much more insight then that! Robin will dig with you; she is not about bandaging up things. While we dug together, she encouraged eating habits for my body. She encouraged me to really look within myself, to notice my patterns, to notice my stressors, and to notice my thoughts. This was eye opening to me. I live a very health conscious lifestyle, but because the term 'health' is so skewed today, Robin helped me to see that some of those ‘healthy’ habits, were perhaps not the best for me, because everybody’s journey is different. One of the biggest areas of digging we have done was the Gut-Brain connection. Our bodies are amazing, and the more we try to listen to its signals, the better we feel. Understanding this concept has bettered me immensely, far beyond my digestive tract and dress size. I am proud of what Robin and I have been able to accomplish together, and I am eager to continue on our journey together!"
E. Molina - Hawthorne, NJ
"I have been a participant in many of Robin's educational workshops and she is so energetic and real! She inspires everyone to try to change, a little at a time and always reinforces the progress we have made. Each time I am in one of her workshops, I learn something new. She handles any situation with positivity, humor and information. Participants always walk away with practical information and new things to try."
K. Adler - Englewood, NJ
"I've had PCOS for 20 years and have always struggled with finding someone who truly understands the condition and how to take control and manage it. Robin has a real grasp of PCOS, and her recommendations of sticking to a gluten free, dairy free, anti inflammatory lifestyle, along with other informative tools has helped reverse my symptoms of PCOS. Robin’s knowledge of overall health and wellness has been so beneficial for me- - we've discussed a lot of mindset strategies and techniques to improve my relationship with food and how to live and embrace this new lifestyle. There have been a lot of “a-ha” moments with Robin, and I’m so appreciative of her support. I immediately saw her passion, and that shines through tremendously while working with her. She has given me a new outlook on life and how we should be kind to ourselves and nourish our bodies. I would recommend her to anyone!"
-C. Natoli - Hackettstown, NJ
'"I worked with Robin to improve my three kids relationship with food and within a couple of weeks, I began to see a difference. My kids started to be more open to trying new foods and my conversation about food was a positive and more specific one. Robin recommended ways of introducing new foods, how to use them more consistently and how to get my kids to like more and more foods. She also instructed me on how to teach the kids that food has the power to change how they feel. I will absolutely recommend working with her! Thank you Robin!'"
-Tal R. - Demarest, NJ
"I have been working with Robin for several months now, and she's been amazing at helping me start my eating disorder recovery. I love that with her, it's not just about the food, but also about how you're feeling physically, emotionally, and mentally. She gives me challenges and encourages me to enjoy myself and get comfortable eating, going out, seeing friends, etc. She's also incredibly easy to talk to, which I believe is crucial to any health professional you're seeing often. I always feel comfortable, heard, and understood during our sessions. In my time working with Robin, I've made changes in my life that a year ago I would've never imagined I'd be able to do. This is an incredibly difficult journey for me, but my progress so far has made it easier for me to continuing pushing towards my goals."
N. Aversa - NYC, NY
"I have been working with Robin for quite some time and I can highly recommend her. She is very skilled and has extensive knowledge to help me, not only with neurological and inflammatory disorders, but also assist me with her diet expertise for pre-diabetes, low sodium and gluten free options. I had met and worked with three prior nutritionists who did little to assist me. Additionally, she made me aware of mindfulness not just for eating but my entire lifestyle and thinking. I further understand how these choices affected my health. I have now been able to monitor both my emotional and eating choices and put these informed ideas into dealing with health issues. What I like most about Robin is that if you get 'off course,' she will immediately redirect you."
L. Page - Oradell, NJ
"I met Robin thru a hospital workshop she was teaching and everything she said during that workshop made me think I had to become a client of hers. Robin's guidance has made such a difference in my life. I had colorectal cancer and have since had severe gastrointestinal issues and since seeing Robin, she has totally transformed how I feel. She has taught me how to be mindful and pay attention to what is good for me; she has given me suggestions that have to do with my particular issues and she draws on her own experience to make me feel that I'm not alone in this struggle. She definitely is a no B.S. person, which is why I listen and learn. I have and will continue to refer anyone that I know or hear of that has GI issues."
R. Silverstein, Mahwah, NJ
"Robin immediately tweaked my diet to reflect my high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Most importantly, she worked with me to change my mindset on food. She has encouraged me to exercise and holds me accountable - which has led to losing almost 25 pounds in 3 months. I feel more focused. No more wanting to take a nap after a meal. This journey has been life changing. Robin is as genuine as they come; she will tell you like it is and is very knowledgeable about the latest nutrition findings which are all in line with anti-aging and anti-inflammatory living."
G. Kanakis - Fort Lee, NJ
"I made the decision to start working with Robin because I struggled with autoimmune diseases, inflammation and unstable blood sugar. I have learned from Robin how important it is to pay attention to small behaviors that can really change the way you feel. I now have an increased self and body awareness that has allowed me to become more comfortable with myself, as I am, at the time, After following Robins recommendations, I can confidently say that I am in control of what I eat; I am more focused and my fatigue has decreased. I'm also now properly detoxing, which wasn't happening prior. In each session, Robin meets you where you are at that time and helps you set realistic, attainable expectations for yourself."
J. Resto - Little Ferry, NJ
"Robin is professional, friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and her work ethic is amazing. If you work hard and stick to the plan, you WILL reach your goals. Robin's philosophy is not about 'going on a diet;' it's changing your eating habits to improve your life. Spending money on yourself to improve your fitness and overall health is an investment that everyone should make, and Robin is worth every single penny and more. Be kind to YOU!!! Go reach your goals with Robin!!!"
C. Schriro - Seaford, NY
'"My whole life I have struggled with stomach issues and never was able to figure out how to feel better. Robin has completely changed my life. She taught me how I can eat food I enjoy and at the same time not sacrifice my health and well-being. Since meeting her, my stomach health has improved dramatically. I feel better on a daily basis and know how to eat for my individual health. I'm so grateful that I found her!"
I. Krishna - Englewood Cliffs, NJ
"Since meeting with Robin, I 've learned what foods are best for my body. Before seeing her, I was a fad dieter, but never saw or felt any positive changes for my overall health. Now, I feel lighter, more energized, and I feel more confident. I’ve made many gradual changes (and keep making them) so I never feel overwhelmed. Whether I’m home or out at a restaurant, I know I can make healthy decisions. Robin has been such a good support for me - - she pushes me when I need it, and she’s there when I have any doubts or questions. I completely feel the difference and I’m grateful!!"
K. Martinez - Saddle Brook, NJ
"I struggled with fatigue and bloating for as long as I could remember. Despite my continued efforts to lessen these symptoms, I remained unsuccessful. Since being referred to Robin, I have learned the importance of mindfulness and listening to what my body needs in order to function properly. She helped me discover what foods were causing my symptoms and created a new eating plan that now leaves me feeling energized and clear minded. Through our work together, Robin has taught me the physical and mental tools I need to be happy and healthy in my everyday life. Knowing how much better I feel now, I can’t imagine a time before Robin’s help!!"
L. Feteiha - Summit, NJ
"I’ve always been health conscious, but once I had kids I put my own needs on the back burner. After speaking with Robin, she really put things into perspective for me and taught me how important it is for me as a wife, and mother of two small children to never neglect self-care - - otherwise I will cheat them all out of being the best version of myself that I can be. Robin gave me useful tools and tips to improve not only my diet, but ways to make sure I don't forget about taking care of myself. I highly recommend her to anyone who really wants the honest truth about nutrition because there are so many false theories/brands out there that are misleading."
K. Kaplysh - Fort Lee, NJ
"Robin has helped me with inflammation and bloating. She has changed my diet and helped me to feel better on a daily basis. She is very concerned and dedicated to my well-being. If you are having health issues, you will not find someone as caring and knowledge as Robin. She has changed my life."
S. Zurndorfer - Cliffside Park, NJ
"While I thought I had a grip on healthy eating, Robin taught me what foods I actually needed to eat for my particular health and how to improve my immune system. She also helped to bring my blood-sugar down thru a specific eating plan. She has made it all straightforward and easy for me to follow. I feel great and stopped the noshing at night because I no longer have cravings. I recommend her to all my friends who want to feel better. "
I. Kasofsky - Fort Lee, NJ
''I had hit bottom, medically, and I was struggling with several medical issues which were not responding to medication. I really needed something else in addition to traditional medical care and I sought Robin's help. As a pediatrician, I advise patients on nutrition, but I never did a good job when it came to myself. This petite young woman pulled no punches and recognized my BS and denial and called me on it. She had a real pulse on where and why I was slipping, nutritionally, and kept me in line. She literally called me out regarding where I was buying food for myself; to the amount of water I was drinking; to the speed at which I was eating; to the screen time devices on while eating; etc. She truly changed what I eat; where I eat; how I eat; why I eat - and I actually feel better. My health has definitely improved and I now (for the first time in 71 years) truly realize the importance of healthy nutrition. Robin has given me an insurmountable amount of knowledge to continue to build on and I thank her for that gift.
Dr. L. Goldblum - Hampton Bays, NY
"I experienced GI symptoms for awhile and even after significant testing, nothing was resolved. A close friend who also had GI issues recommended Robin. I wasn't sure if she would be able to help me, but Robin's knowledge on holistic nutrition was very apparent. Although I had to make some significant changes in my diet, Robin offers a plethora of delicious, nutrient dense alternatives and II hardly missed the foods I removed from my diet. More importantly, my GI issues diminished and I started to be more mindful and aware of how my body responds to what I ingest and to my day-to-day environment. I am so grateful to have found Robin and would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their health and well-being."
I. Abrams - Midland Park, NJ
"I had been on and off diets since I was 12, and have always been able to lose weight fairly quickly, but never sustainably. Working with Robin was truly life changing. For the first time, rather than dieting, I really learned how to eat. Three months in, I had lost over 35 pounds, without even feeling like I was trying. Now three YEARS later, it’s just the way I eat – and I want for nothing. We eat out almost every night, and there is no restaurant that I can’t fully enjoy. If every once in a while I gain a couple of pounds, a week or two of “full Robin” knocks it right off. I have never looked thinner nor felt better. The only bad news was that it cost me a small fortune – I had to give away virtually all my clothes and buy new ones! As a physician and a client, I have recommended Robin many times, and would suggest that anyone can benefit from her counsel."
Dr. M. Harris - NYC, NY
" I was diagnosed with acute diverticulitis and the doctor was not able to give me any specific advice to make me feel better. Fortunately, I found Robin and as a result of meeting with her, I am on my way to healing. Right from the beginning, Robin's knowledge on nutrition was apparent. She had compassion, and a way about her that I admired very much. She has challenged me and made me think in a way I never have before about my health and my mindset. She really cares about her clients and I have felt that during each session."
P. Vassalo - Midland Park, NJ
"I always watched my weight, however, I was a believer that whole wheat products, breakfast bars and yogurt containing fruit were the right foods to be eating. I was label reading for fat content only; I was eating salads for lunch but not considering the nutritional value of the items that I was picking at the salad bar. My sessions with Robin have given me the knowledge and skills to make healthy food selections that provide me with more energy and aid in disease prevention. Robin has truly changed the way I think about food, nutrition and eating right to stay healthy. She provided me with great tools and information on what to eat, what to avoid or eat in moderation, where to shop, and healthy recipes. I can’t recommend her enough and as a result, some friends and family are now having sessions with her."
C. Goldblum - New Rochelle, NY
"I was referred to Robin to help my 5 year-old daughter gain weight. From day one, she recommended several supplements to ensure that my daughter was getting nutritional and immune support beyond her food consumption. She listened to our family lifestyle and foods that my daughter already liked, and she tailored snack ideas and meal plans specific to that. Every time I offer snacks or meals to my daughter (and her sisters), I am thinking with the lens that Robin taught me - ensuring that I have all the right nutrients and focusing on how my kids can benefit from each meal. My daughter is a picky eater and I learned tactics/strategies to ensure that she consumes enough throughout the day. I would highly recommend Robin!"
S. Harinstein - Ridgewood, NJ
"As someone who always felt informed about food, a nutritionist never seemed like a resource that would improve my life, but when I got to college, things got much more difficult regarding my food choices. Robin was able to introduce me to a routine, which included supplements, fast and easy meals, filling foods, and a general outline of the foods to stay away from and ways to replace them. She taught me that if I want pizza with my friends, I can have pizza with my friends and that there is a way to bounce back the next day without feeling guilty or bloated, but satisfied. In just a month and a half, I had lost the “Freshman 20”, that I had unfortunately gained. In addition to weight loss, I was able to achieve a new perspective on balanced eating, and nutrition. With Robin’s assistance, I have found growth and improvement in my attitude, confidence and mindset."
L. Nikias, Ridgewood, NJ
"Robin is the unexpected surprise that has revolutionized my family's relationship to food! As a Mom seeking answers for my daughter's picky eating and associated health problems they were causing, I was of course skeptical that anyone could help me. Of course, I had already read countless blogs, I work in the weight-loss industry and frankly I wasn't sure there was much another person could offer me that I didn't already know. In entered Robin - empathic, smart and filled with more than just advice, but also a special vision and discipline that helped to empower me to make and stick with the behavioral changes I needed to help my child and family. The results have been astounding! No longer do I make separate meals for everyone; my daughter is eating foods that she hadn't touched in years or ever touched. Everyone is eating a much more diverse palate and getting the nutrition they need. I am so grateful for Robin's expertise and compassion. There is no way we could have had this kind of dramatic transformation on our own. I highly recommend you to all desperate Moms trying to feed a family."
L. O'Mara - Edgewater, NJ
"My husband is gluten free, my daughter is dairy free, my daughter-in-law is vegan. When I was in charge of hosting meals for the family, I was becoming very overloaded and confused about the information out there and about how to accommodate all these diets. Additionally, my cholesterol is on the high side and I wanted to avoid taking medication for this. Weight has always been a concern. I also wanted to better understand more about food group combinations and choices."
Robin has helped me to be in control of my weight. We have adjusted and personalized my diet for what is best for me. I have lost a few pounds as well. Robin has great ideas and suggestions for eating, traveling and how to tackle different social situations; she is always willing to listen and to find an answer that works. My cholesterol has lowered as well as other blood levels. I feel as though I have gained a better understanding of myself. It has been a pleasure to work together with Robin."
S. Potolsky - NYC
"For the past number of years, my weight had slowly increased and my health rapidly declined. My blood sugar was reaching pre-diabetic numbers and my blood pressure and cholesterol were in need of medications. My MD recommended that I meet with Robin and it was the best appointment I have ever made. Robin has helped me take back control of my health and my weight . To date, in 8 months, I have lost over 50 pounds with a very personal program that Robin has developed for me. My eating is now clean and healthy. She has given me the tools that I need to to make good choices about what and when I eat. This is a new way of life that has changed both how I feel and how I look. Thank you Robin for adding additional years on to my life."
A. Kovar - Tenafly, NJ
"I have been seeing Robin for over a year now, for help with digestive issues. I specifically came to Robin for help with SIBO. I have had a number of digestive issues my entire life. Robin has helped me not only get control of my SIBO, but also some of my other digestive problems. One of the things I really like about Robin is that she is an advocate of using tools such as yoga and meditation to aid in overall better health. I'm a big fan of using natural resources to help gain optimal health and well being."
B. Simis - Norwood, NJ
"Robin is very knowledgeable, tells is like it is and gives you great tips and tricks. I have lost 20 lbs since working with her. we tackled breakfast, lunch and dinner makeovers, and most importantly, snacks!! She gave me great products to try and she will even give you a tour of Whole Foods and show you things you never thought of for your meal planning. She will tell you exactly where to go to get healthy fare online and elsewhere. Robin is extremely knowledgeable on recommending supplements and helping with issues like borderline sugar numbers and low Vitamin D."
Melissa R - Northern Valley, NJ
"We had an excellent experience as a family in need of nutritional counseling. We sought Robin's services mainly for my 9 year old son, who was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and was advised to begin a low carbohydrate/modified ketogenic diet. Because of his age, this truly became a family adventure in cleaner eating, and learning how to modify our and his diet to include more protein and fat, less sugar, and fewer overall carbohydrates. My son really loved Robin and looked forward to seeing her. She spoke to him directly, questioned him regarding his experience with the new eating habits, and encouraged him to keep going despite the difficult change. Additionally, Robin really helped the rest of the family learn new ways to cook meals and recommended products to eat that would make the change as painless as possible! She provided such great alternatives and because of this, we were successful in making meaningful changes."
V. Mastrobuoni - Passaic, NJ
"Prior to meeting Robin I was overweight, tired and having all kinds of health issues. I was at the point of feeling like what I was doing just wasn't right. I was sick all of the time, I felt awful and I needed someone to help me. Within 2 weeks of meeting with Robin and trying my supplements and new way of eating, I felt a change. In only about 3 and a half months, not only have I lost weight but I feel great. I don't have pain, I am not as tired as I once was, and I actually have more energy then I ever thought I could. My blood pressure has gone down and I have not had to take previously prescribed medication. I didn't know how poorly I was eating and what it was doing to my body. Robin has changed my life. This new lifestyle has given me different ways to cook, different ideas for recipes I already had, and helped me turn my pantry from junk shop into 100% healthy. I have learned to meal prep for the week so there is no room for mistakes. I have learned substitutions, and what I can bring if I am going out. I thought this was going to be hard or almost impossible - it has been the opposite. Now it's just the way I live and do things. Thank you, Robin for everything you have done for me; you are amazing!"
K. De La Cruz - Nyack, NY
"I reached out to Robin after suffering for months from joint pain that made it difficult to conduct my daily activities, including work. I had tried a vegan diet that left me with little to eat, low energy levels, and a sudden loss of 30 lbs. I was desperate to feel better. After working with Robin, I learned how to modify my eating habits to include more variety and better supplements, as well as incorporating new recipes and quality brands of foods I had never tried before. She has also supported and motivated me in trying to make lifestyle changes in order to regain my health. I always look forward to our sessions where we follow-up on the goals we had set and plan new ones. As a result, my overall health continues to improve and I feel like I have my life back again."
Noreen K. - Wayne, NJ
"Prior to meeting Robin, I was having constant stomach pain and having an allergic reaction resulting in hives almost every time I ate. With her help, I was able to find out that I had SIBO and the guidance that she has given me has been life changing. She redirected my diet and I am now able to eat without the discomfort that I had previously been getting. She has taught me so many things and I am so grateful for the help and support she has given me!"
N. Carpentieri - Mahwah, NJ
"I always thought I knew how to eat “healthy,” which I told Robin the first time I met her, “I already know how to eat healthy, I just need some motivation.” The time I spent working with Robin taught me that I hadn’t known what “healthy” meant for my body, and that I actually had an unhealthy relationship with food. I tried a number of diets over the years, my weight always fluctuated, and I had little success finding one healthy lifestyle that would keep me at a weight where I felt confident and happy. My goal at the time was to lose just a few pounds that I couldn’t seem to shake. Little did I know she would completely change my mindset on not only food, but my body. Robin taught me that healthy eating is about a lifestyle, not a diet. She showed me certain food groups to stay away from that made a major difference in my bloating and overall body weight. Now, even when I fall off for a meal, or a few days, once I jump back into my Robin “lifestyle” my body resets and de-bloats. People around me have commented that I had even have a new glow. Robin sees the big picture. She assesses not only what you’re eating but what is going on in your work life, relationships and determines stresses and other factors that are contributing to your greater health picture. She knows how to customize all aspects of a plan for each particular client. I could not recommend her enough – I am thrilled with the path she set me on and the skills I will have for the rest of my life!"
L. Kind - NYC, NY
"I was in a downward spiral when I went to see Robin. I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia two years before. I was in constant pain, unable to exercise, unable to sleep, and had gained a significant amount of weight. Within two months, all of that changed. Robin helped me eliminate inflammatory and problematic foods and set me on a new path towards greater health. Today I'm a different person - - pain free, sleeping soundly, exercising frequently, and I've lost 2/3 of the weight I gained! She's given me a new lease on life."
L. Fischer - Ramsey, NJ
"You think you know everything there is to know about healthy eating habits. I was very skeptical at the beginning- after all, I did know a lot about healthy eating even before I came to see Robin. Robin introduced me to concepts I didn't know about and walked me through this journey of mindful eating. The other important lesson that Robin proved to me was that when it comes to healthy habits - as opposed to popular belief, there is NO one size fits all! I needed to make certain changes and adjustments that were right for me, based on my blood work, health concern (sugar addict) and weight goals. My other friends who went to see Robin received completely different sets of guidelines, which showed me that when it comes to healthy habits one should be living based on individual needs. It cannot be based on an article you read online or a statement a doctor just said on a TV show. Healthy eating is personal. Don't look for answers in book or a magazine. Go see Robin."
Orly G - Closter, NJ
"I first came to Robin because my son was diagnosed with a form of epilepsy and his pediatrician has noticed some kids do well eating healthier. He recommended Robin. She was able to give me specific brands, recipes and ways to sneak healthy foods into meals we were already eating. We have noticed a positive change in my sons energy, sleep and appearance. She was very professional kind and patient with me. She also helped me find ways to work within my budget while still eating healthy foods.These new ideas are changes I have made for the whole family and seen good results. I hadn't realized how many incorrect ideas of food I had picked up through the years. Was a great overall investment for my family."
R. Tarantino - Butler, NJ
"Having a blood sugar concern that had developed, I was encouraged to use Robin. I have been with her for half a year and the weight loss, the improvement of my A1C level, and generally feeling great can be directly attributed to her working with me. Robin is confident in what she asks of you and in turn you become confident it will work. She’ll tell you exactly what strategy to follow to benefit your needs.There is no guessing needed. Explanation of why and how it all works is part of what she does so well. Robin is knowledgeable, approachable, and professional. My world has completely changed since working with her."
D. Ikovitz - Upper Saddle River, NJ
"For years, I suffered from many food phobias and struggled to maintain a healthy weight. As a high schooler one year away from college, I decided to make a change and seek help from a nutritionist. From day one, I could tell that Robin understood my problems perfectly and had a genuine interest in my success. She combined her vast knowledge with my short and long-term goals to provide me with personalized lists of recipes, snacks, and more. She also coached me to work through my phobias and have an open mind about all foods, even the ones I had rejected in the past. In less than a year of working with Robin, I have attained a stable, healthy weight and have broadened my food palette immensely. I feel better, stronger, and more prepared to tackle the next chapter of my life."

"Robin is a real professional, the type of person that gives you the confidence and the tools to reach your goals. Never short of advice or documentation to support her expertise, she has been a true ally in my 60 pound weight loss in 6 months.She focuses, together with you, on getting healthier in all aspects and for a lifetime, not just for a few months. I would recommend her to anybody who is willing to simply feel better and enjoy life to the fullest."
C. Villemin - Mahwah, NJ
"Robin was an absolute pleasure to work with. My son is underweight and she has helped him to gain weight in a healthy manner as well as overcome some of his eating phobias. She introduced me to some helpful supplements, gave advice on how to increase his caloric intake through implementing different types of foods, and discussed tricks to overcome his eating aversions. She also provided nutritious recipes that work for the whole family including my husband's dietary restrictions."
L. Roy - Tenafly, NJ
"Robin has been great to work with.She is a great listener and teacher. She listened to my issues, learned what I had done in the past, made me come up with goals for myself and worked to come up with a great plan for me. Robin was always available whenever I had any questions. All I had to do is email her and a thoughtful and quick response sure to follow, so I was never alone during this process.The results of been great. I look as good as I have in 20 years. I feel great and most important I actually think I can do this for a very long time - - and best of all it doesn't feel like I'm dieting at all."
J. Rubach - Englewood, NJ
"Robin has been instrumental in providing holistic nutrition services as part of our multidisciplinary efforts in treating outpatients with chronic pain at the Pain Management and Wellness Center at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. We have seen objective results in terms of increased function and energy levels in our chronic pain patients. Some patients have also demonstrated an ability to lose weight while working with Robin longitudinally. I would recommend Robin to anyone interested in improving their overall well-being."
Dr. Ofer Wellisch, Pain Management at Englewood Hospital - Englewood, NJ
"Robin’s approach has been life-changing for our 10 year old son. I contacted Robin via a referral from my pediatrician doubtful that she would have any suggestions that I hadn’t already tried with my son. I have a pretty in depth knowledge of nutrition and spend countless hours in the kitchen making healthy meals for my family. Despite my persistence with trying to broaden our son’s diet, I wasn't successful. From my first conversation with Robin I felt hopeful that she might be able to help. Robin helped me first take a few steps backward and focus big picture on how we were going to get more variety and nutrition into my son’s diet, even if that meant initially bending on a few things. She helped me re-prioritize the daily food battles and pick reasonable challenges for expanding his palette. She has also helped me with addressing the emotions around food and meals and coaching me on how to help my son build confidence as an eater. Our son is eating tons of new foods and I am actually saving time with meal preparation because I am able to make one dinner for all. Most of all, he feels proud of himself and has many times thanked me for not giving up on him. I thought I had tried everything and then I met Robin! It’s a lot of work to desensitize a picky eater and you have to be willing to follow through on everything at home after each session, but I am certain that with Robin as your coach it will be worth the time in the end because you will succeed."
D. Badenhausen - Ramsey, NJ
"My first interaction with Robin was in a meeting in my office to discuss what she could potentially do for some of our patients interested in improving their nutritional health and possibly impact some of their musculoskeletal problems. I was first very impressed with her professionalism followed closely by her knowledge and passion. She then worked successfully with a number of our patients, who were tremendously pleased with her helpful instruction, guidance and outcomes. I then decided to consult Robin myself and found her guidance superb. She was able to design a nutritional program for me that has been informative and has helped me achieve some of my health goals. Robin is the only nutritional professional we use for our practice and I look forward to her help for our patients for many years to come."
S. Churchill - Owner of Churchill Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Teaneck, NJ
"I met Robin a year or so ago at a Lunch and Learn event at my company and have been working with her privately for over six months now. I was very impressed with her wealth of knowledge in nutrition and have always believed that how and what we eat greatly affects our health. I suffer from an autoimmune disease, and having Robin help me to get back on track has been a blessing. Thanks to a recommended cleanse and her follow up and guidance, I lost nearly 20 lbs. in two months. So far, I have been able to keep the weight off and a result, I am feeling much better physically and mentally. Most of us know what we should be doing to stay healthy but find every excuse why not to do those things. Robin helps me to be accountable for doing the right things and more importantly eating the right foods. I appreciate her help and look forward to meeting my continued weight loss goals and improved good health!"
Patty F. - Warwick, NY
"Robin has taught us how to get back to basics and how to simplify our lives. In a very supportive way, she has guided us toward a healthier lifestyle. Robin's focus is always on health and wellness and she stresses the importance of making informed food choices. On one of our first visits we were talking about how hard it is to live a healthy lifestyle with such busy schedules. Robin reminded us that without our health, nothing else really matters. Those words still help us as we work to maintain a balanced and healthy life."
Costanzo Family - Ramsey, NJ
"When I was diagnosed with MS, I refused to accept that my life would change negatively. I began consulting with Robin immediately, and she provided me with simple, straightforward advice to reduce inflammation. Her approach was just as much about what to add into my diet, as it is was about what to reduce or avoid, so I never felt deprived. Robin listened thoroughly to my needs, and by following her advice and modifying my diet, my symptoms vanished and I can honestly say I am healthier today than I’ve ever been! I would highly recommend Robin to anyone suffering with MS (or any other condition), as she is thorough, knowledgeable, and truly motivating. With Robin’s steady confidence and support, achieving any goal you set will become possible."
M. Marsh - Wind Gap, PA
"I come from a family with history of diabetes and found out I had high blood sugar. I love to cook and always tried to make a healthy meal for my family, but I would always crave carbohydrates and not so much protein. After a friend told me about Robin, I decided to give it a try. My main goal when I started was to lower my blood sugar and lose some weight. She was able to help me not only with that, but also with other issues like low energy, cravings and leg pains. I don't know how many times I've complained to my doctor about being always tired and having leg pain! Robin was able to take care of that with just a few simple changes in my diet!
Claudia B. - Tenafly, NJ
"I first came to Robin with high cholesterol, high blood sugar and was significantly overweight. I come from a family of over-eaters and have been on diets before, but the weight always came back and I never really learned how to change my habits. Over time, Robin has helped me to identify my triggers, change my habits and teach me which foods are best for me. I have completely changed my diet, lost a ton of weight and feel confident that I know how to fuel my body. All of my levels are lowered and I couldn't be happier that I have learned how to be proactive about my health."
J. Ingenito - Wycoff, NJ
"After a year of seeing a personal trainer and not losing a pound, I really thought my issues were age and hormonal. My trainer suggested I speak with Robin. Since starting my journey with her, I lost 8 pounds in the first 2 weeks and have since lost 20 pounds over the course of 5 months. The most important aspect of seeing Robin is that she provides you with information on how to eat - - not about dieting, but about what food works for you and how to achieve the best results. I think about my food choices at home and dining out to stay healthy, reach my ultimate weight-loss goal and to still enjoy food. Her knowledge and research has been invaluable to me and the results have been more energy, motivation and a lifestyle change."
Y. Doxey - Newburgh, NY
"Robin was a pleasure to work with. She spoke at two of our events. She captures the attention of the audience and presents a valuable message. The depth of her knowledge is clearly evident and engaging."
C. Goncalves - Manager of Education, NJ Bankers Association, Cranford, NJ
"Robin has been instrumental in helping our company jump start our wellness initiative. She has assisted us with identifying wellness strategies that are impactful and lasting for our employees. With her help, we have customized several lunch-and-learns and cooking demos, which have been well attended by staff. Her presentations are informative, professional and engaging, and employees trust her. She always leaves employees with a wealth of nutritional information and take-away tips that can be easily incorporated into their daily lives. Her passion for healthy living is inspiring. Robin is a great partner to have on your wellness team."
B. Bailey - Human Resources for American Association of Advertising Agencies, NYC
"I went to Robin after I had tried and failed all kinds of Internet diets and had spent unreasonable money on gyms. My goal was purely weight loss when I started with her. I have to admit that she has completely changed the way I feel about food. I have successfully shed significant pounds, but it's not just about that. Food to me, now, is not a source of instant gratification. It's something that I cherish with every bite and am more mindful of it. She has also given me some daily low intensity workouts which I could easily fit into my busy working mom schedule. She, really, has introduced me to - Myself, an aspect of Me that I was oblivious to. Her knowledge and motivation is contagious. It has helped me grow healthy at a physical, mental and spiritual level!"
I. Sachar, MD - Glen Rock, NJ
"Robin is a very knowledgeable, calming, caring individual who has helped me transform the way I eat and handle stress. After my breast cancer diagnosis last year, I asked Robin to help me eat better and manage my stress level from my job. I didn’t eat poorly, but knew there were changes I should make. She gave me great ideas and recipes to help me clean up my diet, as well as ways to manage my stress at home and at work. At first my husband didn’t want to change his eating habits, however when he realized that it was easier for both of us to eat the same healthy food he agreed. We both feel better and have lost weight. Incorporating Robin’s advice into my daily routine has not been difficult and she is always accessible with encouraging words, advice and recipes. I am very happy that I met Robin and cleaned up my eating habits which has also given me more energy throughout the day. I would highly recommend Robin!"
MF - Westfield, NJ
"When I first started going to Robin, I just found out that I had Type II diabetes. I also have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. As an Italian I knew how to cook, but not how to cook healthy. Robin showed me the good things to eat and told me the bad foods to stay away from on my diet. Robin provided me with written recipes for healthy dishes that were also delicious. She also told me things to look for on food labels. Robin comes highly recommended by my daughter who is a health care professional. After going to Robin for three months my A1C is now lowered, I lost 25 pounds and hope to get off the diabetes medication completely."
R. Deodato - Waldwick, NJ
"We brought Robin in as part of an initiative for our Health & Wellness Committee. We wanted a nutritionist who was able to speak articulately and intelligently to our employees about the myriad of benefits of healthy eating and lifestyle, as well as some common relatively unknown pitfalls. It was important that our employees heard that healthy eating could be an enjoyable and rewarding life choice, rather than some restrictive and unsustainable elimination diet. Robin did not disappoint whatsoever. She delivered the knowledge, passion and hope we were looking for. In a corporate environment, it can be an uphill battle to help your employees and coworkers get on the right track for their health and happiness. The pull can be so great, to put your head in the sand and keep eating the junk- - but with leaders and teachers like Robin, opening people's eyes to the possibilities of wellness and vitality, there is hope."
D. Allu - Employee of UPS Corporate, Wayne, NJ
"We have been working with Robin since my son was diagnosed with EOE (Eosinophilic Esophagitis). We needed to eliminate dairy, egg, nuts, soy and fish and also help my son gain weight. Robin was able to calm my nerves and concentrate on suggesting the most nutritious foods with the most amount of calories. I have learned so much about what goes into foods, how supplements work and how to best feed my son. As a by-product of my education with Robin, I was also able to make smarter food choices for my whole family. Not only has my son continued to gain weight and lessen the amount of EOE in his body, but we are all more educated and aware of what we are putting into our bodies. Thank you!!"
E. Todd - Tenafly, NJ
"I took my 10 year-old son to see Robin because he needed to change his eating habits. She has been extremely helpful in educating him about making healthy choices, teaching him how to read labels and to always look for natural and simple ingredients. Her advice and knowledge has helped us to adjust his diet so he can not only enjoy healthy and nutritious food but also lose some weight and keep his hyperactivity down! The best part is that we can see the change in him already! Robin always engages his attention and motivates him to try new things. He is always excited to try her delicious recipes! Thanks Robin for helping my son and also the rest of the family to a healthier life!"
The son- "Before, I ate a lot of junk food. I never knew how to eat healthy... Then my mother took me to see Robin. She taught me how to eat and enjoy good and nutritious foods that are good for you and also how to read labels. She also showed me that healthy food can taste REALLY REALLY good and that if you don't like a particular food but keep eating it, you will learn to like it! THANK YOU ROBIN!!!!!!"
Lilian O & Mateus - Tenafly, NJ
"I was fortunate enough to learn about Robin via a program where my company brought her in for a Lunch and Learn session on nutrition. Robin is spot on and accurate about food education, as once I was educated on the foods I ate, my body and the way I felt changed for the better. I learned from Robin that the right foods are paramount to losing weight and feeling good. People think they know all there is to know about proper nutrition and eating habits as I thought I did before meeting Robin. If you are not educated on what to look for in the foods you buy and consume you really are at a disadvantage; you really have to read the labels of the many deceiving so called healthy foods, snacks and drinks out there. Robin really opened my eyes on the sugar content of these 'healthy foods and snacks.' Since meeting Robin I have changed my eating habits and started feeling better from the foods I ate. Education truly is power in the world of food and what we decide to eat!"
M. Bonjolo – Employee of UPS Corporate, Mahwah, NJ
"Robin has been a joy to work with. She is dedicated, motivating and very knowledgeable. While I thought eating healthy required eating bland foods or greens for every meal, Robin has showed me how to eat nutritiously and still enjoy the food that I eat. From the beginning, Robin really listened to what I needed and together we were able to come up with a plan that was tailored to my schedule and to foods that I liked to eat. Besides guiding me in my food choices, Robin also advised me on how to manage my schedule and set aside time in my week for food shopping and cooking. In our sessions, I felt that Robin truly cared about my results and wanted to see me succeed. Thank you for all your help and support!"
Mady K - NYC, NY
"I have an 8 year old son who suffers from nephrotic syndrome, which is an autoimmune disorder. We try to control the amount of relapses he suffers by controlling his diet and eliminating the foods that he is sensitive to. Robin was an enormous help. My son is gluten free and at times we also eliminated things like dairy, soy, fish, eggs and meat. No matter what my sons limitations were, Robin was able to help guide me with products to buy, snacks to make and recipes to follow. She knows the details of the labels and was able to direct me to make the smartest, most nutritious choices for my son and my whole family. She has a great deal of knowledge about the products out there. With Robin's great knowledge and amazing guidance we have decreased the amount of relapses my son has."
J. Rubach - Tenafly, NJ
"I have had migraines most of my adult life and had been to various doctors to find a cause and eliminate the migraines. Robin was my last resort! August was the first month in 30 years that I have not had one migraine! My other goal was to lose weight and I have accomplished both! Robin’s knowledge and passion for health have been an inspiration to me and I hope to continue on the path that has now become a way of life for me with Robin’s continued guidance."
S. Seidman - Teaneck, NJ
"When facing a personal health crisis, I knew instinctively that good nutrition and healthy eating would speed my recovery and give me a greater chance of remaining disease-free. While my physicians provided excellent medical care, they did not address the importance of eating the appropriate foods--and staying away from the wrong ones. Robin developed a customized eating regimen for me, complete with shopping and preparation information. I've been following it ever since and truly enjoying the 'whole' and healthful foods she introduced to me. I recommend Robin to anyone looking to learn more about incorporating healthful eating into their lifestyle."
C. Valentino - Westwood, NJ
"Robin’s holistic approach to wellness looked at all of my needs beginning with first asking what was most important to me. That simple question reassured me that this process could work and I was willing to give it a chance despite my nervousness. Together we agreed to try and tackle my headaches with a gradual diet and nutrition change that should also lead to weight loss over time. She customized a plan based on my eating and lifestyle habits, current medications, and lifestyle challenges. Each week when we met she was prepared with research on specific topics unique to my situation, articles on nutritional science, and information on how to read labels, recipes, shopping lists, and new meal ideas. The changes have been gradual. At times, I became frustrated and Robin was able to walk me through the “science” of the nutritional changes, and how they will take time. She has absolutely convinced me I am leading and “eating” a better way. After 3 months, I feel like a new person with my headaches reduced by half, the weight is coming off, and I have a renewed sense of energy."
Leslie S. - Ramsey, NJ
"Robin shows dedication and genuine interest in getting to the bottom of some health concerns I have been dealing with for most of my adult life. I was diagnosed with acid reflux over 15 years ago and had been taking medication daily while still continuing to experience painful gas and bloating at times. After seeing doctors and being put on medication, my next thought was I must change my diet. I was determined to be rid of the painful symptoms I had been dealing with for too many years. Additionally, I was told by my gynecologist that the acne I have been dealing with for years is hormonal. They wanted to put me on a birth control pill to regulate it. I am a firm believer that the “power of food education” in its true meaning is so very powerful. What you don’t know will hurt you. As of today, I have not had to take my medication once since consulting with Robin over the last 4 months. My skin has cleared up with minimal breakouts. Both of these issues have been heavily weighing on me for many years. I am so grateful to have met Robin as she has introduced me to different types of food and an overall way of being mindful and making the right choices. Robin's passion and motivation in counseling me has made a profound personal impact."
"Robin helped me to understand which brands of food are more nutritious than others for me and my children. I had many questions regarding the right foods to give my kids, if they had to be organic and what the best brands were to buy and Robin was able to explain it all to me in a way that I could easily understand and implement in my daily life."
J. Donchey - Tenafly, NJ
"You are a plethora of valuable information. Thank you for the wonderful information you have empowered me with. Keep 'feeding' us, Robin."
E. Amtman - Cresskill, NJ
"Our society demands instant success and all I have to show for my life of gimmick dieting is a larger belly and a closet of clothes that I could not fit into. True success is rarely instantaneous, it is often balance of knowledge, wisdom and will. There is no doubt Robin has the knowledge, she has the pedigree to strengthen your will. All you need is the wisdom to listen and learn and the results will be clear. Put down the diet book, turn off the infomercial and open your mind. Good health isn’t a battle, it requires a change in life, if you really want to get there, Robin will show you the way. She has transformed this “junk food junkie” into someone who thinks about his health, yearns to improve and loves the results."
T. Gasparovich - Ramsey, NJ
"It is all about the choices we make, which I always knew, but wasn’t always sure about what choices to make. Robin helped me to understand how to make the best choices to feel better and feel satisfied. The realization that I actually wasn’t eating enough protein to lose weight was definitely eye-opening. I learned to focus on making mindful choices and if I had a bad day it is easy to get back on track. Robin made notes for me at each session, which I still refer to today – I have yet to move them off my kitchen cookbook stand! I totally recommend spending time with Robin to get you started on a new healthy path without feeling like on a diet. I looked forward to each session and would definitely set up time with her if I ever feel I need the extra boost to keep on track."
J. Cohen - Tenafly, NJ
"Working with Robin was truly a wonderful experience. She exposed me to many new things in the nutrition world, but most importantly how to eat mindfully and slow down. I still incorporate many of her ideas and lessons into my daily routine. She's very inspiring and makes the process enjoyable and exciting!"
A. Zona - Franklin Lakes, NJ
"Not only was Robin a wealth of information on healthy eating, she also personally designed an eating regiment tailored to my diet, finances, and environment. This kind of attentiveness cannot be found on the Internet."
A. Hsu - Tenafly, NJ
"Our family worked with Robin for a short-time and, in that time, our family's eating patterns changed to reflect a much more balanced and healthy diet full of whole foods. Additionally, we had a goal of improving cholesterol levels and, due to our changed eating patterns, we were able to see significant decreases in our lipid profiles. Robin is organized, prepared, efficient and extremely knowledgeable. She was able to make specific suggestions regarding brand names, ingredients and portions which was helpful for everyone in our family. We unequivocally would recommend Robin to anyone looking to make changes for a healthier lifestyle!"
Hunter Family - Englewood, NJ
"Robin taught me about being mindful and how to handle dealing with the sugar. I think of her every time I come home tired in the afternoon and ask the Robin question... 'Are you really hungry - - maybe you should have a hot cup of tea.' She impacted me on on so many levels by teaching me what to do and how to be be mindful."
L. Bailey - Franklin Lakes, NJ
