Hi, and thanks for visiting!
I’m Colleen Webb, and I’m a licensed nutritionist, registered dietitian, nutrition consultant, health blogger and speaker with a passion for nutrition, food, and the gut.
My fascination with gut health doesn’t always make for appropriate dinner conversation, but it does support my mission, which is to improve your quality of life by empowering you to use food and nutrition to manage your digestive health.
Since I was a teenager I’ve been fascinated by food’s influence on well-being, but my interest in nutrition and the gut began when I accepted a position at the Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease at Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City.
As the center’s clinical nutritionist, I specialize in providing personalized nutrition education to people with a variety of gastrointestinal issues, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, food sensitivities, food intolerances, diverticulitis, constipation, bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Nutrition’s role in managing gastrointestinal health is extremely important, a point that I am reminded of over and again, as I watch my patients take control of their lives by modifying what and how they eat.
Thanks to the positive feedback from my patients at the IBD center, I established a private nutrition counseling service where I counsel patients nationwide via telecommute.
One of the best parts of my job is helping people make sense of all of the inaccurate and misleading nutrition information surrounding us. Besides counseling, I created the Eat For Years nutrition blog that I update regularly to help you unravel these distractions.
When I’m not counseling or writing in my blog, you might find me running through Central Park, dining at one of NYC’s amazing restaurants, or hitting up a local farmer’s market to find fresh produce for a home-cooked meal.
