The New Atkins for a New You Workbook: A Weekly Food Journal to Help You Shed Weight and Feel Great by Colette Heimowitz

As Vice President of Nutrition & Education, Colette Heimowitz is the driving force for nutrition information at Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. Among her responsibilities is keeping current with emerging research on human nutrition and specifically the Atkins Diet. She then “translates” that information for the general population on the Atkins website and in Atkins books. Colette is the nutritionist face to the Atkins Community, which is dedicated to helping people reach their weightloss goals. As part of this initiative, she publishes a weekly Nutritionist Blog. She is also responsible for content devoted to educating new members about the program, including introductory videos, phase-specific courses, and interactive FAQs.
Colette has been a guest on radio programs nationwide, as well as on television networks including CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC. She has more than twenty-five years of experience as a nutritionist, which includes her time working with Dr. Robert C. Atkins as Director of Nutrition at The Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine in New York City. Colette received her M.Sc. in clinical nutrition from Hunter College of the City University of New York.

In addition to her daily exercise routine, which includes walking her dog, Colette relaxes by enjoying the fruits of her profession: namely, cooking and eating.
