It was an absolute pleasure to sit down with my guest today, Amanda Foti! Amanda is a registered dietitian from New York with a Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition. She’s also the Director at Healthie — a comprehensive platform for nutritional and wellness care. But, most excitingly (for me), she’s also an entrepreneur who got the start-up itch.
Today’s conversation is all about how we can eat better as mission-minded entrepreneurs. And it’s a really interesting one too! Amanda uniquely contextualized nutrition and nutritional optimization for the world of entrepreneurs. We also got into the types of foods that she recommends for her clients in terms of maximizing energy and shifting our habits, and, had a really fascinating conversation around the psychology of eating (why is it that we pick the foods that we do? And what are the influences on the types of foods that we naturally select for our bodies?)
As an entrepreneur, it is key to eat healthily and maintain optimal nutrition! You’ll want to tune in for this one.

“[It’s really important] to set your intentions … [and understand] your motivation, because if you don’t have those two things then any diet, any plan, [or] any attempt to try and feel better physically, will just not go well.” — Amanda Foti
“Focus on what you’re adding to your diet, vs. taking away.” — Amanda Foti
“If you develop a negative association with being active or eating healthy, then you’re not setting yourself up for success long-term. So, I always tell my clients: whatever it is, be positive about it.” — Amanda Foti
“[A] positive shift in mindset is so incredibly powerful to actually sticking with [a healthy lifestyle.]” — Amanda Foti
“I’m really, really family-focused. If I’m not working, or working out, or focused on things that I have to do for me, it’s 100% spent with family.” — Amanda Foti
