What Jonah’s Patients Are Saying

“Jonah’s expertise and guidance has completely changed my life.”

“Jonah’s expertise and guidance has completely changed my life. My relationship with food has improved dramatically. He is an incredible listener and I never felt judged for the thoughts or feelings I expressed during our sessions. He was able to identify my anxieties about food, while building my confidence at the same time. Every session ended with me feeling stronger and more sure of myself. If I had a question or concern in between sessions, I emailed him and he responded immediately. Jonah has a wealth of knowledge and provided me with all the tools I needed to succeed.” – 32-year-old female, Wellesley, MA

“It’s not only about the nutrition and exercise, but about what works for me in my life.”

“Working with Jonah has been a pleasure.  He provides the positive reinforcement that helps to keep my goals and priorities in perspective.  It’s not only about the nutrition and exercise, but about what works for me in my life.  Jonah has been an essential supportive element to the life change that I instituted two years ago.  With Jonah’s knowledge, insight, and expertise, I feel more confident in sustaining those positive changes.” – 45-year-old female, Ashland, MA

“Jonah really works to make sure the solutions we come up with will work for me”

“I have been working with Jonah for some time.  The sessions are helpful, motivating, and educational.  Most of all, they are full of good information that I can incorporate into my everyday life.  Jonah really works to make sure the solutions we come up with will work for me.  He is willing to adjust the plan so that it is something that I will follow and stick with.  While I now know that nutrition and weight loss are for life and not simply a diet, I am glad to have him working with me and coaching me.  He is really responsive; if I have questions, I can email him and not have to wait until my next appointment and will get a quick response.  Jonah has turned out to be a great coach.” – 53-year-old male, Holliston, MA

“He is highly ethical and an outstanding listener”

“Jonah is extraordinary.  He is highly ethical and an outstanding listener who develops individual plans based upon your needs and lifestyle.  He takes a holistic approach to guiding you toward healthy eating habits.  He has a greater concern for your physical health and mental well-being than for weight loss, which in turn motivates you to attain your goals. Jonah takes copious notes and utilizes the information to help you progress in future sessions.  He is extremely resourceful and knowledgeable in all facets of nutrition and health.  Jonah has a warm and friendly personality, and it is a pleasure to know and work with him.”  – 66-year-old male and 52-year-old female, Needham, MA

“He was willing to listen to anything I had to say and take it in without judgment”

“I have seen a few nutritionists, but I have never worked with anyone I felt as comfortable with as Jonah. He was willing to listen to anything I had to say and take it in without judgment. He encouraged me when I felt discouraged and pushed me without being overbearing. I noticed a significant improvement in how I looked and felt while following Jonah’s customized plan for my exercise and dietary goals. I appreciated the way he broke everything down into manageable pieces, explaining why each part was important along the way. He was very flexible when I wanted to substitute different foods, and he went out of his way to look up information for me. I would recommend Jonah to anyone who wants to be healthier and feel better inside and out.” – 26-year-old female, Newton, MA

“I never felt deprived”

“I sought out Jonah’s nutritional expertise for two reasons.  1. I knew he was an incredible runner, and I wanted to be one too.  2. He is known for putting together nutritional meal plans that are specifically tailored to each individual’s needs.  I knew I wanted to be a great runner, I wanted to improve my pace, and I wanted to eat healthier.  I wanted to train for races; therefore, I knew I needed to change my diet to meet my goals.  Jonah was exactly who I needed to help me accomplish this.  He walked me through each step, starting with taking me to the grocery store and showing me what to buy, what nutrients I needed, and what foods would give me the most fuel for not only my runs but throughout my busy day as well.  Jonah also talked with me about the foods that I love (cheeseburgers and anything chocolate) and showed me how to incorporate those tasty treats into my meal plan.  I never felt deprived.  The great thing about working with Jonah is that he is a great motivator and teacher.  With the meal plan he devised for me, I was able to improve my running (I just ran my first half marathon last month.), took 1.5 minutes off my mile pace and I feel great!  He taught me about food, nutrition, and what my body needs to stay happy.  Jonah has helped me tremendously.  I now have a new set of goals for myself, and I know that with Jonah’s help, I can get it done!”  – 31-year-old female, Brighton, MA

“Jonah has a way of celebrating your strengths and supporting your weaknesses”

“Jonah has a way of celebrating your strengths and supporting your weaknesses that inspires you to keep moving.  No matter where you are starting from or where you would like to go with your wellness goals, Jonah helps you create a unique program tailored to support your health.  Jonah takes knowledge and education very seriously and combines his extensive training with the most up-to-date research.  Jonah is the type of person who will answer your questions honestly and fully.  If he is unfamiliar with a topic, he will research it and get back to you with an informed and thorough answer.  When I would show up in Jonah’s office, no matter how successful I had felt about my previous week, he would really listen to my story.  Each time, Jonah would point out successes that I did not realize I had and compassionately suggest ways to grow over the course of the next week.”  – 30-year-old female, Edgartown, MA

“He stays with his clients for as long as they need him; he never gives up!”

“Jonah is very knowledgeable in the fields of nutrition and wellness. He really pays attention to his clients and, unlike some nutritionists, is willing to be incredibly flexible to meet their individual needs. His entire goal is to help his clients find a wellness program that not only works, but also fits in with their lifestyle so that they can stay with it long term. He is kind, caring, supportive, and can find something positive in almost any situation. His gentle, cheerful manner makes him a pleasure to work with. It is clear that he is committed to his work both professionally and personally. He is well educated and well informed and is always looking for new ways to deal with health issues. He stays with his clients for as long as they need him; he never gives up!” – 60-year-old female, Lynnfield, MA

“Jonah . . . has the unique ability to create partnerships with his clients that empower them to achieve their goals”

“Jonah is a gifted RD. The other RDs I have worked with seemed to have one mode – that of ‘expert’ – and communicate by telling you what to do. Not only does Jonah have deep expertise, but he also has the unique ability to create partnerships with his clients that empower them to achieve their goals. It has been a privilege to work with Jonah.” – 64-year-old female, Brookline, MA

“Jonah has helped me build muscle, lose fat, and improve my exercise routine”

“I have met with Jonah and he is, in a word, amazing.  He has provided me with guidance on how to effectively do an elimination diet (to find the source of some gastrointestinal issues) and how best to fuel my body before and after working out.  His combined training as a personal trainer and a Registered Dietitian has equipped him with a knowledge base not commonly found.  Plus, he’s not all fluff and really goes the extra distance to help design a complete lifestyle-focused approach to your diet/health.  Jonah has helped me build muscle, lose fat, and improve my exercise routine by offering guidance on foods that will fuel and fill me.” – 35-year-old female, Saratoga Springs, NY
