Mary Hartley, R.D., MPH was first the consulting nutritionist and then the Director of Nutrition at Calorie Count from 2006 to 2011.

From Mary Hartley:

In 2004, I began a diet analysis and nutrition counseling service on the Internet. I didn't have the technology know-how I needed, but I was committed to the medium and I hoped for the best.

I had been a registered dietitian working in Providence, Rhode Island for 27 years, specializing in obesity, eating disorders and chronic diseases. I worked in HMOs, clinics, medical practices, teaching hospitals and universities, helping people of all ages with all kinds of medical conditions. I had a successful private practice for 15 years, and all together, I had more than 20,000 patient visits!

And so, there I was in 2006, a dedicated nutritionist in need of brilliant computer engineers, when I met Igor and Erik, just like I pictured it. Voila! Hope realized. 

I worked for Calorie Count for five years before leaving the world of office work to return to private practice.  I now "visit" patients via video chat or Skype, email and telephone.  Read about my services on my website, I CAN HELP YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.  I welcome you to contact me.

When it comes to weight control, I've always been committed to a realistic, personal and flexible approach. I believe in making informed choices based on values and preferences, with a clear understanding of the consequences involved, for better or for worse. I am sure that people can embrace fresh, healthy, well-prepared food and physical activity performed in the spirit of fun and stress control. Throughout my career, I have used a "Non-Diet Approach", which emphasizes appetite regulation around hunger and satiety and learning to solve emotional problems without using food.

Best wishes, and thank you for reading my page.
