Christine Patorniti,


President and Owner of Nutrition Center of Colorado

I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to be here, allow me to provide a little background on myself and my awesome team of Board Certified, Registered Dieitians!

When asked the common question of ‘what do you do?’ my response is simple; I help individuals thrive on their way to health and wellness.

As a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, I’ve had the privilege to spend the last 10 years of my career helping thousands of individuals control their diseases and lose weight, while eating what they love and finding peace with food!

Working one-on-one with clients for so many years has given me a unique understanding of what individuals struggle with and what resources they need in order to be successful in their goals. I believe in simple, sustainable and results-driven strategies when it comes to nutrition. Through this approach, our RD's and myself are able to help our clients reach lasting nutrition success, never before obtained!
