Brian founded Brian Ligi Nutrition in 2010 in order to provide up-to-date information and guidance to people struggling with ongoing nutrition-related issues. Brian has been practicing as a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN) for over 15 years. Brian’s background working in Clinical Nutrition, behavioral health, and private practice counseling helps him to provide a more holistic approach to Nutrition, while staying grounded in evidence-based science.
Brian has 13 years of experience as a Clinical Dietitian covering a wide array of disease processes while at Abington-Jefferson Health. He then took this experience into the private practice realm where (for the last 8+ years) he has helped patients/clients and their families to make changes in their lifestyles using Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines and behavioral modification.
Brian designs therapeutic eating programs that are not only healthy and safe, but delicious and practical, while also incorporating the latest evidence-based scientific research. Through his client-centered approach, and his emphasis on making real lifestyle changes, he teaches clients to stop dieting and learn how to eat sensibly while incorporating the foods they love. Hopefully these changes will help the client to achieve/maintain a healthy weight, increase your overall energy level, and pay dividends in your health and well-being.
On a more clinical level, Brian provides Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) on a wide variety of issues including cardiovascular disease, cancer, eating disorders, thyroid disorders, renal disease and diabetes. He evaluates current eating and lifestyle behaviors and makes appropriate and personalized recommendations while taking your medical history into account. This is done in conjunction with your family physician, specialists, and other clinicians to insure a safe and successful outcome
Outside of his practice, Brian has learned many valuable lessons from being a proud father to a teenage son (who “gives him a run for his money, as he did his father”), a lucky husband to an amazing & strong woman (for over 20 years), a wine-maker/grower, a hedonistic foodie, a passionate gardener, dog-lover, family historian, and many other things. So what is the most important thing that Brian’s experience has taught him: Experience, compassion, and listening carefully to clients/patients is what gets long-lasting results.
His life has taken him on a journey which has lead him to where he is today as a Nutritional Counselor, and as your guide through this ever-confusing world of nutrition and wellness.
