Laura Manning is a Registered Dietitian in the Department of Gastroenterology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. She has spent the last 15 years at Mount Sinai, of which the last 10 have been in Gastroenterology. Having been in many other areas in a clinical setting, she believes this to be most interesting department to study nutrition. She has a strong interest in working with people diagnosed Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Short Bowel Syndrome, Celiac Disease, Gastroparesis and many other motility disorders of the GI tract. She obtained her Bachelors in Nutrition and Masters in Public Health from Hunter College in New York City. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two children and loves to cook in her spare time. A portion of her time is also spent working with the press and has been in publications such as the Huffington Post, Fitness Magazine, Everyday Health, SheKnows.com, The Daily News, MindBodyGreen.com to name a few.
While many nutritionists spend the bulk of their practices advising people on how to lose weight, Laura has found a niche in helping malnourished people to gain weight in the healthiest way possible. She is also passionate about helping people in our constantly bustling world to avoid the pitfalls and poor nutrition choices of the fast food industry. Busy lifestyles lead many people into diets that are heavy in prepared and processed foods, resulting in high rates of obesity and chronic disease. Laura can help you take matters into your own hands and begin to cook and eat healthy (and simply!) again.
