Hello! Welcome and allow me to formally introduce myself, I’m Serena Benali, a registered dietitian and a recovered overeater and binge eater.
Serena knows first-hand how challenging it can be to lose weight and overcome the mentality and obstacles that hold people back from embodying their best self. After struggling with her weight for the majority of her life with one failed fad diet after another, Serena stopped the diet cycle and lost 100 pounds. At her turning point, Serena realized she wasn’t living her life to the fullest because of her weight and made a promise to herself that she was going to lose weight and never go on another diet.
Serena made an enormous shift in her mentality and developed a new mindset. She learned the skills to nourish her body and mind all while getting to a healthy weight. Through this journey she found a new joy for living while reclaiming her life.
Serena’s personal struggle and triumph gave her the drive to become a Dietitian. Serena went on to complete her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and completed her Dietetic Internship at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario.
Now, at In Good Nutrition, Serena combines the invaluable lessons gained from her lived experience along with her expertise as a Dietitian to work with and support clients in making meaningful life-lasting change to become healthier versions of themselves.
Prior to starting her practice, Serena started her career as a Dietitian, teaching culinary skills to clients and supporting them to create nourishing, delicious meals that inspire them to eat and live better. Serena then went to work with the Canadian Armed Forces as a Health Promotion Specialist and Dietitian. Serena now commits her time to nurturing and growing her practice and assisting people into transforming and living the life they know they were meant to live!
