Dana James, MS, CNS, CDN
Dana James MS, CNS, CDN, is a triple certified nutritionist, functional medicine practitioner and cogitative behavioral therapist. She takes a rare approach to women’s weight loss putting self-worth at the center of the conversation. James believes that we need to address both the tangible and intangible; food and feelings; science and spirituality; conscious thought and subconscious thought.
In 2007, James founded Food Coach NYC, a functional medicine nutrition practice where she has helped over three thousand women decode their body fat. According to James, body fat is part hormonal, part inflammatory and part emotional. She has witnessed that by changing your hormones, you change where you store body fat. Got belly fat, well that’s cortisol. Got a booty, that’s estrogen. Got a layer of fat everywhere, that’s insulin. And if you want to lose fat from specific places, you need to change your hormones by changing what you eat and how you think. She also explains why “life” gets in the way of your better intentions. Surprisingly, it’s to do with your childhood imprints and how you developed your sense of self worth. James wants to share this information with all women struggling with their body – physically and emotionally – and has put this in her first book: The Archetype Diet: Reclaim Your Self-Worth and Change the Shape of Your Body.
James has her Masters of Science in Medical Nutrition from Columbia University and received her training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from the Beck Institute. James is an accredited nutritionist for media outlets like The New York Times, ELLE, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, MindBodyGreen, Good Morning America and The Today Show, and speaks regularly alongside wellness luminaries including Deepak Chopra and Mark Hyman.
