Tina Marinacco, RD.





As an Integrative Culinary Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I help clients reconnect with, and have a healthy relationship with food.


I offer real solutions in a collaborative, client centered approach; not cookie cutter “meal plans” or one size fits all programs that don’t suit your lifestyle.


Learn to use food as medicine to achieve optimal health. Whether you are looking to lose weight, manage chronic conditions such as IBS, and other diseases of inflammation, food is the most important cornerstone, and first line of defense.


Based in Morristown New Jersey, serving Manhattan, and boroughs of NYC, and available by telehealth for busy people.


Some states have no laws to say who can call themselves a nutritionist or a personal trainer. With food as medicine becoming mainstream, anyone and everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon touting the latest miracle diet or exercise plan, even though many hold absolutely no credentials and no formal education at all.

Unfortunately for the public, this has become confusing and costly for consumers, and sometimes harmful.

Requirements to earn the Licensed Registered Dietitian credential include a Bachelor of Science in Clinical Nutrition, a 1200 hour supervised healthcare internship, and passing a national exam from the American Dietetic Association.


In addition, my education and experience includes:


  • Providing nutrition counseling, cooking classes, speaker services, and personal training since 1996
  • Masters Degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University
  • Formal training in functional medicine and nutrition from Institute of Functional Medicine and Institute of Functional Nutrition Academy
  • Consultant to private practices, hospitals, and foodservice industries
  • Former Director of Food and Nutrition for Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation
  • Former Clinical Nutrition Manager for Aramark Corporation
  • Former Nutrition Advisor for Solgar Vitamin and Herb
  • Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition from New York University
  • Certification in Weight Management from American Dietetic Association
  • Certification in Macrobiotic Studies from the Kushi Institute
