Claudia M. Gonzalez

I am a nutritionist, dietitian and co-author of the book “Gordito Doesn’t Mean Healthy” (Penguin, 2006).

I was born in Peru, but completed my nutrition and dietetics studies at Florida International University (FIU), where I also obtained a master’s degree in Journalism and Communications.

Nowadays, I have my own private practice focused on disease prevention through nutritional therapy; besides, I work as a consultant for medical centers and doctors’ offices in the areas of rejuvenation and weight loss, as well as for centers for geriatrics, endocrinology, pediatrics and immunology.

I am also a health columnist and have written many articles for local and national magazines and blogs, and I have been a frequent guest on various TV and radio shows.

For six years, I was the spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), formerly known as the American Dietetic Association (ADA), where I specialized in issues relating to Hispanics in the United States and all over the world. Besides, I have been consulted for many food shows throughout the world, as well as for food manufacturers and companies in the United States.
