Tamar Samuels

Tamar’s unique approach to nutrition care was inspired by her journey with food and her health and integrates lifestyle medicine and behavioral change techniques pulled from her training in clinical nutrition, psychology, and coaching science. 

As a Registered Dietitian, she's helped countless people transform their relationship with food to overcome a variety of health conditions and improve their lives. As the co-founder of Culina Health, she’s passionate about making personalized and sustainable nutrition care accessible to everyone. 

My background

Born on New York’s Lower East Side and raised in Woodstock, New York, by a family of musicians and artists, I developed a deep empathy for others and the belief that health is a human right and not a luxury. I majored in Psychology for my undergraduate degree at Hunter College, Minoring in Africana and Puerto Rican/Latino studies. I was inspired to enter the field of nutrition after her personal experience with a chronic GI condition, which was poorly managed by her doctors and led to years of unnecessary food restriction. I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and completed my clinical training at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. I am trained as a health coach and specialize in health behavior modification, lifestyle medicine (sleep, stress management, physical activity), and relationship with food.
