TwoSistas and it’s FantabulousFriday, September 16, 2022 with Patricia Kolesa! Patricia is a registered dietitian based out of New Jersey, United States. She completed her Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics at Rutgers University where she double minored in Biology and Psychology. From there, she went on to complete her internship and masters degree to become a dietitian at Wellness Workdays where she had an emphasis in Sports Nutrition and Entrepreneurship.
Since her undergraduate, Patricia has had the opportunity to work with multiple populations most notably, the United States Rowing Team, weight loss surgery, diabetes, weight management, cardiovascular disease, renal disease and most recently, geriatrics.
Patricia knew she wanted to work in the health industry and uses an anti-diet, individualized approach in nutrition and fitness. Her mission is to help working women like herself become more curious/excited about food and find exercises that they enjoy so they can achieve overall health without the added stresses of weight loss and dieting.
Her insight into food and nutrition goes way beyond just “dieting”. It’s about simplicity, taking action and being mindful. In order to succeed, you need to dedicate the time. Different people require different nutrition and hydration needs. Patricia works with clients 1:1 and in her internships learned more valuable info on the nutrition needs of athletes.
Patricia also learned at an early age on how to read labels and we had a great conversation! She also provided her take on energy drinks and the hazards (yes, there are hazards) of relying on those types of energy drinks.
Now read this - you just have to listen to this podcast with Patricia - she’s witty, knowledgeable and her expertise and insight is the advice you just may be looking for!
