Insights From a Cleveland Clinic Diet App Nutritionist


Julia Zumpano has loved counseling patients one on one for the past 19 years. But the nutrition pro recently got the opportunity to extend her reach — and jumped at the chance.

Zumpano is a registered dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Human Nutrition, and her expert insight helped inform the guidelines for two programs featured in the hospital’s new wellness and diet coaching app, the Cleveland Clinic Diet app. Both programs aim to educate and empower users in making healthier diet and lifestyle choices.

The app was developed in collaboration with FitNow, which is part of the Everyday Health Group.

“A lot of the time we give our health off to the provider we’re seeking,” says Zumpano, who is also the Nutrition Media Liaison for the Cleveland Clinic. “The goal of this [app] is to take ownership in that and understand what is going on in our bodies — be involved in decisions that are being made [in order to] be able to make lifestyle changes that support your health and your overall health outcomes.”
