My name is Melissa Rifkin. I’m a New York dietitian, a certified SPIN instructor, and I love nutrition. I love hearing about a new brand and analyzing its packaging, trying new healthy and yummy recipes with for me and my 10-month-old son Max, and above all, sharing my discoveries with my Instagram followers on @confessionofadietitian.
With more than 11 years of experience in curating meal plans for every single client according to their specific nutritional demands, I am excited to share my expertise with you for your journey to a healthier lifestyle.

Helping my clients is more than a simple “calories in, calories out” approach. My career relies on using food and exercise as a means to happiness and health. I believe in developing tailored, individualized plans that encourage practical, sustainable goals that fit your own goals and lifestyles. After all, each person has different tastes, preferences and requirements — why would nutrition be any different?
Whether you are addressing new health concerns, looking to provide the best foods for yourself and your new baby, or simply trying to incorporate more healthful foods into your diet, you are on a journey. You can reach your goals eating the foods you like—I am here to guide you along the way with moderation and balance.
