Diana Orchant

Health Coach

I’m a virtual Functional Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, and I’ve always been passionate about using food as medicine to help individuals feel their best.

My journey to a career in nutrition began at a young age, as I struggled with chronic gastrointestinal issues and cystic acne; during my Freshman year of college alone, I took 10 different antibiotics. After years of uncertainty, I took control of my well-being by adopting a healthier lifestyle and a diet rich in nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods. I filled my shelves with nutrition books and learned that eating better meant swapping pseudo-health foods for whole foods in their most natural state. With these changes and learnings, my symptoms rapidly disappeared, yet when I looked around me, I saw so many others struggling with the same issues that I was, and the fire within me was ignited.

After graduation, I moved to New York City and worked in product development at American Express. On evenings and weekends, I began recipe-testing, started a dedicated meditation practice, and became a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. which ultimately led me to shift my career to nutrition, so I could have an impact on others’ lives.

I am passionate about helping others find their healthiest, most vibrant lives to not only mitigate but prevent disease and discomfort. I understand what it feels like having no energy, running on empty, and grabbing that third cup of coffee to get through the day. I understand what it feels like to struggle with hormonal imbalances and stubborn acne. I understand what it’s like to be tempted by snacks in your home and at work, only to suffer from digestive distress in the evening. I’ve been there.

I’ve worked with an array of clients in a variety of settings including clinical acute care, community organizations, functional medicine clinics, and wellness centers. Through these experiences, I’ve learned that each individual is unique and have found a range of ways to partner with them to get to the root cause of their distress. I focus on real, whole foods and simple changes that will result in life-long changes. I dive into the science of nutrition, sleep, energy, physical activity, hormones, medical history, as well as diagnostic lab testing. I craft individualized plans that provide clients with life-long knowledge, centered on what works for their lifestyles.

I am here to help you live a healthy, happy, and optimized life!
