Heather Bauer
Nutrition, Weight Loss, Diet and Lifestyle Expert

Heather Bauer is a nationally recognized nutrition expert, author, and founder of Nu-Train, a New York City-based diet and nutrition counseling center. Over the last decade Heather has taught thousands of people how to safely lose weight and keep it off for good. Her success stories range from those working long hours on Wall Street, to doctors, lawyers, mothers, athletes and celebrities.


In 2008 Heather released her first book, The Wall Street Diet, a program designed especially for busy people that don’t have time to diet. In Heather’s second book, Bread Is the Devil (St. Martin’s Griffin, 2012), she provides time-tested strategies and a 21-day plan to help readers overcome common diet pitfalls, what Bauer refers to as “Diet Devils.” Some of these Devils include “The Late Night Shuffle (for those midnight marauders that just can’t stay out of the kitchen), “Road Hogging” (for travelers who decide to put their healthy habits on hold when on the road) and “The Plunge” (for anyone that wonders where that whole sleeve of cookies went).


In 2001, Heather founded Bestowed, a product discovery platform for health-conscious consumers that provides tips, shopping lists, and a blog. She also founded Nu-Train (short for Nutrition Training) in 2001 on the premise that in order to be successful and sustainable, a weight loss program must work with ones existing habits, not against them. As such, Nu-Train’s program goes beyond traditional nutrition science taking into account critical and often overlooked factors such as lifestyle, taste, preferences and diet history.


Heather sits on Cooking Light magazine’s Nutrition Advisory Board and has appeared on popular TV and Radio shows such as CBS-TV’s The Early Show, CNN, The Tyra Banks Show, FOX Morning News, and Martha Stewart Living Radio on SiriusXM.  She has also been a featured nutritionist in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Self magazine, In Touch Weekly, InStyle, Shape, Gotham magazine and Ladies’ Home Journal.


Heather received her BS and RD from the University of Wisconsin and is a member of the American Dietetic Association (ADA) and the New York State Dietetic Association (NYSDA). She lives in Connecticut with her husband, daughter and twin boys. When she’s not chasing after her children, she’s usually out running.
