About Lyssa

Lyssa Weiss, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., is the owner of Skinny Jeans Nutrition, LLC and a weight management and obesity specialist in private practice in Westchester County, New York. She specializes in emotional and compulsive eating; teaching women who have been on every diet imaginable that weight loss has little to do with calories, and everything to do with strategies. Weight isn’t the problem for most dieters. It is a symptom; a symptom of being out of control with food. What you put in your mouth is secondary to what you put in your head. Lyssa Weiss teaches you how to live thin, forever, with an eating plan that is built around you. It is a brand new script for living and thriving in the world of food. Her motto is “get smart and skinny!”

Lyssa Weiss earned her undergraduate degree at Washington University in St. Louis and graduate degree in nutrition at Columbia University. She completed internships at New York City’s prestigious Lenox Hill and Mt. Sinai Hospitals and was a staff nutritionist at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital’s VanItallie Center for Nutrition and Weight Management, also in New York City. Lyssa is a frequent lecturer and much-in-demand media spokesperson and public speaker. She is the author of the book The Skinny Jeans Diet (Harper Collins).
