Mitali Kapila, MS, RD
Greetings! I am Mitali Kapila, MSc, MS, RD, Registered Dietitian, and founder/owner of Vitality Nutrition LLC in Wixom, Michigan. I am very excited to join the wonderful team of Primecare of Wixom and provide care for the patients at PCN!! What I believe is simple: Wholesome and nourishing foods have the power to improve all the cells in body to help you look healthy, feel strong and energized. I specialize in providing dietary management of various conditions including, Weight loss, cholesterol and triglyceride reduction, blood pressure management, diabetes, pre-diabetes, chronic kidney disease, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance. Furthermore, I also counsel patients with eating disorders, digestive disorders, food allergies, and those in general looking to improve their health, weight, and lifestyle by balancing their food selection, eating habits in combination with proper exercise!
As a Registered dietitian and Health Coach in Wixom, my mission is to provide clients with nutrition education that will enable them to adopt and promote a healthy lifestyle. Every client needs are different and I take great pride in getting to know you, and providing you with the education and information that is right for you. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is not easy, for many people it takes guidance from a professional.
About my background, I received my Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, and in parallel completed the Coordinated Program in Dietetics to achieve my RD registration. I started my professional career in 2002 as a dietitian/study coordinator at Rochester Center of Obesity Research(RCOR) associated with Crittenton Hospital, Rochester Hills, MI. I then worked as a Bionutritionist at Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) at The University of Michigan. I have worked as a Senior Dietitian at University of Michigan’s Weight Management Clinic, Ann Arbor until June 2012. I have over 10 years of experience in research, clinical as well as the outpatient nutrition counseling. Besides providing private consults, I also am an active writer, TV and radio personality, preceptor and mentor for University of Michigan students, speaker and presenter for corporations, schools, organizations, churches, senior centers, and universities.
I am a knowledgeable advisor who provides ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness. As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and help you to navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice to determine what changes are necessary for you. My focus is to help people change how they view food, and make it a positive aspect of their lives! It is important to remember there is no prescription medication or medical procedure that exists or will ever exist that cures a lack of self-care and proper nourishment!! God Bless and See you at Primecare of Wixom Soon!!
