My philosophy is simple. I believe that if you truly make an effort to eat healthy foods, exercise, and incorporate self-care and joy into your life 51% of the time, the other 49% will naturally fall into place (even if it’s not “perfect”). Bottom line: We can strive to eat well MOST of the time, not ALL the time.
I’ve never liked extremes. I don’t believe in excluding foods (if not necessary), having everything liquefied, or never ever ever having sugar again. I don’t think that’s real. I believe in a healthy medium. Maybe that makes me the worst dietitian ever, but maybe, just maybe, this way of thinking has allowed me and my clients to reach our goals, enjoy food, and (surprise, surprise) enjoy THE PROCESS.
A few other things you should know about my approach:
When your food changes, everything changes! I promise.

I am originally from Cancun, Mexico. Prior to living in New York, my nutrition journey began in Washington, DC, where I attended American University for a B.S. in Health Promotion and two minors in Business and Dance (ex-Ballet dancer!). Soon after I became a Health Coach certified by Teachers College of Columbia University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I completed a second B.S. in Nutrition and Food Science from Hunter College. I accomplished my dietetic internship with Sodexo at New York Hospital of Queens, while simultaneously finishing my Masters in Clinical Nutrition at New York Institute of Technology. I received Alpha Eta honors in Clinical Nutrition from NYIT.
These are the areas of nutrition I am very passionate about: gastrointestinal health, integrative nutrition, living healthy with cancer, pediatric & family nutrition, weight management, healthy relationship with food, bulk cooking, mindful eating, and making healthy food simple!
Some of my work experience:
Each session/plan is tailored to your needs and goals. With continuing support, encouragement, accountability, progress reports, and possible tweaks in your plan, together we’ll strive to build healthy habits that effortlessly integrate into your lifestyle.
How long are the sessions?
Initial sessions are 60-minutes and follow-up sessions are 30-minutes.
Where do we meet?
Alanna Cabrero Nutrition, PC is all about convenience, which is why the program is virtual. Most sessions are done over the phone, FaceTime, or Skype. We can talk on your lunch break, during your commute, or after your kid’s bedtime. If it’s scheduled 24 hours in advance, it’s happening! Note: Initial consultations may be scheduled in person for an added cost.
How frequent do we meet?
Sessions are usually once every 1-2 weeks, but frequency is determined by your goals and schedule.
Do you need to prepare anything before we start working together?
Prior to starting a nutrition session/plan, you will be asked to fill out an in-depth Confidential Initial Assessment. Be ready to answer questions about your lifestyle, nutritional habits, and medical health history. During the sessions, I would strongly suggest taking notes. .

I started working with Alanna to lose weight before my wedding. I loved her program because it was different from all the ones I had tried before. It was all about balance and feeling well, the weight came off naturally. I lost 20 pounds and never felt deprived or had to stick to some unrealistic diet. I kept my social life, still went out to restaurants and parties, but with moderation and was now empowered to make better choices. Our sessions were very helpful to keep me on track, teach me better habits and monitor my progress. Here, I learned how to eat, what to eat, and more importantly how to combine these new habits into my daily life for weight loss and maintenance, as well as for energy, better sleep and overall better health.

I learned about ACNutrition through her awesome and easy to make meals. I started to implement them in my life. Later on I had challenges feeding my baby girl of 5 months, Antonia. She was struggling gaining weight due to her milk allergy. ACNutrition provided me with great guidance that over time has helped Antonia gain weight, establish a healthy and easy food routine, and also allowed me to gain trust in myself.. Last but not least, her flexible formats for meetings and support are very suitable with my lifestyle. I liked the practical approach to food as well as Alanna's personalized service and very friendly persona.

I believe Alanna is a great professional. I have followed her social media for a long time and have found her advice and approach towards nutrition innovative and cutting edge. Alanna was great in listening to what I wanted to accomplish during the program. She was always on top of my goals, and looking for ways to help me achieve them from a very respectful, feasible, and thoughtful perspective. It has been a wonderful experience, so much I decided to continue with it for a longer term. Alanna has changed my approach to food, but also to life style; so that the changes I make come from a healthy and sustainable place. I would recommend her program "con ojos cerrados" (with eyes closed).

I started the 3-week challenge because I don't believe in diets and I liked the ‘change in habits’ approach much better. It has helped introduce new food choices, making my food more balanced, and attractive to eat. Alanna is very professional and knowledgeable; however what I liked the most was her flexibility to adapt the program to my fast-paced lifestyle, taking into account my different needs and making a personalized plan just for me.
- Abril A. Cancun, MX
The bottom line is this: the work we did together was so helpful and healing and I'm experiencing those wonderful effects months after we stopped working together. I realize that so many things we talked about have stayed with me and helped me when I needed it most. I've lost 8 lbs and feel amazing. I cook healthy vibrant meals and bring them with me wherever I go. Today at lunch, I brought my leftovers of bean, brown rice and collard greens. I'm not kidding!! And... I had baby carrots and hummus for a snack! So there you have it. Thank you so much for everything. Your faith and energy in me has helped me so much. Thank you!!"

Thanks to her dedication, knowledge and sharp intuitiveness as to what works for ME, Alanna has integrated all smiles in every aspect of my personal wellbeing through practice, experimentation, and learning. It is she that should be patting herself on the back for consistently delivering priceless guidance in every nutritional regard to my SELF.

Working with Alanna has made a huge impact in my life. I'm learning about vegetables and grains I never knew existed and how eating can affect how I feel and how my body reacts. My energy level has increased and I am learning to cook for the first time in my life (the right way!). Alanna is so helpful in walking you through the process and supporting you along to incorporate these healthy habits into your everyday life.
- Gaby G. Miami, FL
Working one on one with Alanna was a great way to get myself motivated to have healthy eating (and life-style) habits during that "oh so difficult fall-to-winter holiday time period!" I continue to apply everything I learned in my sessions with Alanna, and I frequently reference our conversations. Alanna helped me target specific goals and personalized health concerns. It was great to share my progress and accomplishments, set new goals, and achieve them.

Alanna is very well-informed and has a way of giving you a whole new perspective on food and nutrition. By tackling a new food group each session, you really delve into the properties of foods and their effects on your body. So, no matter how much you think you know, I would still recommend Alanna's programs for their wholistic nature and grassroots approach to healthy living.
