What Clients Are Saying
"My daughter has been seeing Justine for several months, after we received some troubling bloodwork during a routine physical. I love that Justine focused on healthy choices and proper nutrition as opposed to calories or specific things that she can and cannot eat. The focus was definitely on health as opposed to the number on the scale which was important to me although weight loss was certainly a goal of ours. Her nutrition plan was made up entirely of foods that she Enjoys to eat and is really something that we hope can be followed lifelong.Justine’s easy-going nature and ability to listen really have played a role in my daughter’s success"
Mother of K.A. (17 years old)
"I have been diabetic my whole adult life and needed high doses of insulin as well as oral medication. For so long I struggled with my weight and balancing my blood sugars. Even though I was on all this medication I could never get it right. Justine Friedman was recommended to me as a dietitian and after our first appointment I knew I was in good hands. For the first time I felt that someone was actually listening and hearing what my concerns were. She made a meal plan for me that was easy to follow. It wasn't a diet but just good advice on how to include foods in my daily eating. Not only has my weight come down but I have been able to reduce the amount of insulin I need by more than half. My blood sugars are finally under control and I know that I can carry on eating like this for the rest of my life. All our appointments were online and I was grateful to get my health under control even during Covid-19"

"I was referred to consult with Justine Friedman as a clinical dietitian to assist me with a stomach problem that I had been experiencing for years. I was never able to identify what foods were affecting me and I was living with a constantly overactive bowel and diarrhea. On my own I had identified a few safe foods but I really felt that my quality of life was badly affected. After our first appointment Justine drew up a meal plan for me according to a low FODMAP way of eating. She also took my likes and dislikes into account and educated me on why she had suggested both including and excluding certain foods. There were some foods that I was hesitant to eat and from following Justine's guidelines I was surprised to see that they worked well for me. She also encouraged me to use a probiotic and this was a game changer. I have been following this new lifestyle approach for almost 5 months and I can finally eat without worry that what I eat is going to affect me badly. Through our follow up appointments Justine has helped me to recognise patterns in foods that are better for me and those that trigger me. I would highly recommend Justine as a dietician for anyone who needs assistance with their gastric health"
