Laura’s practice is based in Manhattan and she is available for private, one-on-one consultations, family nutrition sessions or meetings with groups of peers. Laura’s holistic approach focuses on meeting you, the client, at your level of readiness.

Relying on her endocrine knowledge, she will help you make balanced meal decisions that stabilize your blood sugar and hormone levels. Through her expertise and experience Laura can help you learn from your internal cues to comfortably determine your appropriate food intake and eventually rid yourself of the “diet mentality.” Working with Laura is the first step of a new life: one that is completely free of diets and replaces them with a true understanding of moderation.
Laura earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics at Colorado State University, where she graduated with honors. She interned at New York–Presbyterian Hospital/Weil Cornell Medical Center as a Dietetic Intern and has since held the distinguished positions of Clinical Dietitian for New York–Presbyterian Hospital/ Weil Cornell Medical Center, Nutrition Coordinator for CEDAR Associates in Westchester and Rockland counties, and consultant for the Renfrew Center in both New Jersey and New York.

In 2000, she opened her private practice, Laura Cipullo, LLC Nutrition Services, in New Jersey, where she specialized in medical nutrition therapy, eating disorders and the non-diet approach. Due to high demand, she soon moved and expanded her offices to New York City. As of 2011, Laura closed the NJ offices and maintains her private practice Laura Cipullo Whole Nutrition Services in the Union Square area of NYC. In conjunction with her private practice Laura acts as the Nutrition Director for Experience Wellness Group and leads bi-weekly meal support therapy groups.

Most recently, Laura serves as the Membership Chair for the New York chapter of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IADEP) and is also Chair of the Food and Nutrition Committee for Corlears School. Her volunteer history includes a designation as a Food Professional for the children participating in the American Institute of Wine and Food’s Days of Taste program and volunteer work for the nonprofit organization Children for Children, which engages young people in community service. Her expertise is consistently sought by a variety of nationally circulated publications, including Fitness, Cosmopolitan, OK! Magazine, Competitor, Diabetes Forecast, and Diabetic Living. Laura has also made television appearances as frequent guests on The Dr. Steve Show, Headline News and NewYork One. She is currently at work on her first book, which will focus on managing the responsibilities of feeding a busy family and teaching children about nutrition in a way that fosters a positive, healthy attitude towards food.
