Evelyn Duran-Ponce Dietitian

A Little More About Me

I grew up in a family that recognized the importance of eating well for your health.  This led me on my journey in nutrition eventually specializing in diabetes and obesity.  Shortly before my certification in diabetes education my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.  He was only an infant so I have experience, both as a mother and a dietitian with what it is like to live with diabetes.


For 25 years I have counseled my patients and clients on dietary guidelines based on the best available research at the time.  I put an emphasis on vegetables, quality animal proteins, and healthy fats as part of my advice for most.  This approach, in my experience, improves outcomes for my patients.

I do not try to be the food police or a professional chef but my tricks of the trade have helped many people realize that just about anything is manageable.  Whether you need guidance in the grocery store, putting meals plans together, insulin dosing, or just a place to talk, I’m here to help.
