Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.

Born and raised in South Philly, a former Certified Fitness Instructor and Nutrition Educator.  Lisa obtained her undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Food Science at Drexel University, completed her dietetic internship at the University of Delaware, and then completed her health coach training through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

“My passion for teaching others the tools that I have learned for living a healthier life inspired me to start my own private practice in 2015. I am thrilled to be working in my own backyard and providing services to my community. I am a mother and wife. I love to cook and try new foods! I feel my best when I incorporate daily exercise especially weight training. I never tasted a fruit I did not like!  I also love the beach and outdoor activities.”


My Approach

“Nourish Your Body, One Meal at a Time”
Every client learns the fundamentals of healthy eating, meal planning, and lifestyle modification. Nutrition education is incorporated into every session. Clients feel empowered and motivated to make their health the #1 priority.

How Can I Help?

There is often times a disconnect when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle; we know what’s good for our bodies, but we don’t always act accordingly. I help to mend the gap between knowing and doing, by catering to each individual’s unique circumstances. Whether it is weight management, disease prevention, meal planning, improving athletic performance, food cravings/allergies or developing a healthy relationship with food, I offer a variety of services designed to meet your needs.

Working together, you will develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for you and make lasting changes that will improve HEALTH, increase ENERGY, and support BALANCE.

What Clients Say…

In the midst of a Pandemic, stress eating and too many “virtual happy hours” had gotten the best of me. I’ve worked with Lisa Rudi-Davis before with successful outcomes, but my 2020 needs were different… Lisa’s approach is holistic. She does not simply give you a one size fit all program. I received an individualized program based on my needs with attainable goals and concrete strategies.  If I missed the mark, Lisa would tweak my goals until we got it just right. I am happy to say that the scale is moving int he right direction.  However, I am most proud of my non-scale victories. I’ve gained mental clarity as well as an understanding of what my body needs for optimal functioning. I can’t sing her praises enough.
Lisa Rudi-Davis of Nourish Philly is more than a phenomenal nutritionist, she is a “teacher” who shares her knowledge and empowers you to do better.

I started working with Lisa after I started my weight loss journey.  I needed to manage my nutrition after being diagnosed with diabetes.  She helped me plan calorie goals, as well as explain the role of sugars in my diet.  I love that she helps me track my meals to make sure I’m eating a balanced diet.  She gave me tips on supplements that have been helpful for my sleep habits and overall health.  With her guidance, I was able to get my Ha1c within a normal level and get off most of the medicines I was using to manage my health.  I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is trying to live a healthy lifestyle.

Hello all… if you’re looking to improve your diet and your life, please allow Lisa to be your nutritionist.  Since working with her in May, I have lost 20lbs.  I went from 247 pounds to 221 pounds currently. She taught me how to eat responsibly.  She didn’t change my diet to “rabbit food.  It works.  Call Lisa today if you’re serious about changing your life.

Hi everyone! I met with Lisa a few months ago. I was tired of doing all the FAD diets and always gaining the weight right back . I needed to learn from a professional what mistakes I was making. Lisa gave me so much information in our 2 visits together I am now down 19.5 lbs in 2 months. I look forward to our next appointment to learn even more about how we use Food to Nourish our bodies . Thank you Lisa for giving me the tools I needed to get motivated and for all your encouragement and support 😊You are amazing and truly great at what you do 😘

Highly recommended! My body has felt a huge difference since learning the right things to eat! The foods that I thought were healthy, wasn’t so healthy. Love the goals that was set for me, and by following them, it has had a huge impact on my lifestyle for the better! Very helpful and goes above and behinds for clients!

I’m so thankful to have met my nutritionist, Lisa last year. Since we met, my life has been amazing. My family has benefited from a healthy diet full of clean organic foods. She created an organized plan for success by having me set no more than three goals each time we met. Since my first consultation, I have lost 5.8 pounds with healthy, clean eating. Lisa is extremely personable and has become a friend. She is always available via the Healthie app and she always has amazing tips and tricks on grocery shopping on a budget. She’s a great listener and very professional. Ultimately, I love the encouragement and accountability she provides. I don’t know why I didn’t meet her sooner!

Lisa has been a true godsend for me. I had a baby and was a little lost on how to attain my weight loss goals while breastfeeding. She helped me make the right changes to lose weight safely and effectively. I am already down 5 pounds ! I definitely recommend Lisa if your looking to change your life and become healthy All around.
