About Carole Bartolotto, MA, RD

photo-41Hi, and welcome to my blog! I am a registered dietitian with a master’s degree in exercise physiology. I have  worked in the field of diet and health for over 20 years. I like to stay on top of the latest research and translate it into actionable steps that can transform your health. I am available for speaking, writing, and consulting on diet and health. For more information, see here. Like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter @cabartolotto.

As a registered dietitian in southern California, I have consulted and written about a variety of nutrition topics. I have also created curricula for educational programs.

I have spoken at many conferences and symposia on a myriad of subjects including heart disease, weight management, trendy foods, popular diets, diet for menopause, healthy eating, calories, high blood pressure, salt, low carb diets, plant-based diets, sugary drink alternatives, genetically modified foods, and more.

I grew up in the Los Angeles area and was always curious about diet and its effect on health. As a child I saw the impact of a poor diet on the health of my family and I thought there must be a better way than drugs and surgery. I have also struggled with my own health issues which has deepened my interest in diet and its impact on health. My belief was, and still is, that what you eat each day can have a profound effect on your health, and is the key for both prevention and treatment of most chronic health conditions.

In my spare time I like to listen to live music, eat Thai food, drink kale smoothies, paint, hike in the Santa Monica Mountains, and have FUN.

  1. Hi Carole,
    I just finished reading the NYT article on Food Politics Creates Rift…I practice integrative medicine in Chicago and spend the majority of my time doing nutritional counseling as it
    is the number one intervention that helps people heal from just about everything. I am friends
    with Jeffrey Smith and appear a couple of times in Genetic Roulette. I am grateful to his
    work as it added the missing piece in my practice. I now prescribe a 0% GMO diet to 100% of my patients and have been thrilled with the results. I don’t need research on GMO’s at this point. I have all the proof I need from 30 years of clinical practice. I am writing to give you my support. Keep up the good work. Educating the public with the truth is a high calling.

  2. Great Blog! My family and I started eating organic foods for about 5 years now and we cut out the processed foods. Although, we just can’t escape it 100% when we are away from home, I made my home free from soy, gmo foods and all types of corn based products including corn itself. I only use olive oil and coconut oil to cook with. We are in Toronto, Canada.

  4. As a retired RN, in healthcare for 50 years, in diverse specialties, including psych., I would like to pay you my top compliment; knowlegable & sensible.
    I’m a proponent of grow your own or buy local more than I am “organic”.
    I recently purchased some house brand “organic” honey from a national super-market chain (forgetting my cardinal rule to read the back of the label with skeptical eyes).
    When I unpacked it at home, it read “product of Brazil” and I suspect it may have been “trans-shipped” from China (which in addition to avoiding customs duties, according to the NYTimes, has been discovered to include “additives” no one would want to ingest).
    I tried to verify the organic certification on the appropriate website, to no avail.
    I tried to verify the area in Brazil which the company rep. claimed she had visited but could find no apiaries.
    I’m perplexed.
