The hustle and bustle of living in NYC can take a toll on your health. We work long hours, eat on the run, are stressed to the max and live in the city that never sleeps. This can lead to poor energy levels in the short term and increased risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer in the long term. But with our hectic schedules, who has time to think about what we can do to change this?

As a registered dietitian in NYC with over 20 years' experience, I've listened to thousands of stories from my clients. While everyone is unique, there are commonalities in the lifestyles of many New Yorkers. I've put together my top 9 nutrition tips to help you improve your health in 2018. And don't forget about adequate sleep, stress management and regular exercise!
