Chelsea DeAngelis is a registered dietitian nutritionist. She will be offering clients nutrition counseling online via telehealth or at the South Hills and Pittsburgh locations.
Chelsea is trained in and has helped clients address a wide variety of food and nutrition concerns but specializes in the following areas:
Women’s health and hormones
Metabolic syndrome or any combination of the following concerns: high blood pressure, high blood sugar, abnormal cholesterol levels
Chelsea takes a comprehensive behavior, lifestyle, and nutritional approach to nutrition counseling. She believes that diets do not work for most people, there is no magic pill, and quick fixes often do not last. She believes that true health and nutrition are much simpler than what you read in the headlines or what new fad diets are saying that you should do. The recommendations for many concerns fall back to the basics: “eat more fruits and vegetables!” “incorporate more whole grains!” “eat a balanced diet!” Of course, there are certain conditions that require more personalized nutrition advice, but what it often boils down to is quite simple. The hard part is in the doing. The real work comes with establishing a supportive mindset, coming up with appropriate, attainable goals, managing day to day behaviors, and creating and maintaining a routine that will work for you and truly become a lifestyle. Chelsea will help you collect the tools you need to do just that.
Chelsea is a former high school nutrition teacher where she taught students the basics of food and nutrition and how to cook delicious, balanced meals. She is a teacher at heart and loves to bring that energy into her work as a dietitian. She enjoys finding creative ways to help her clients learn more about how their bodies work from a nutrition and metabolic viewpoint and help them create and achieve their health and wellness goals.
Chelsea is originally from Columbus, Ohio where she graduated from The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in education. She moved to Detroit, Michigan where she taught high school health and nutrition classes at a low-income district outside of Flint, Michigan, soon after the start of the Flint water crisis in 2014. This experience was a pivotal moment in her decision to go back to school and earn a master’s degree in public health nutrition.
She moved to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to attend one of the top public health programs in the country at the University of North Carolina. The public health nutrition program taught her the science of human nutrition to be able to diagnose and treat nutrition-related problems. But more importantly, it gave her an even deeper understanding of the many barriers that so many face when it comes to health and nutrition and how to help people overcome or work around those barriers.
Chelsea is now living with her husband in his home city of Pittsburgh, with their two cats, renovating and fixing up their first home. She enjoys cooking, trying new restaurants, being outdoors, hiking, traveling, and listening to podcasts during long walks.
Whether you have seen a dietitian before, or are a first-timer; whether you have a new concern or one that you’re now ready to address, Chelsea can’t wait to work with you to create a personalized plan that will work for you. Nutrition counseling is not one-size-fits-all and she is committed to being the expert resource and support you need to find a sustainable solution that works for your unique needs.
