Diet & Nutrition
Let food be your medicine.
Nourish. Enjoy. Heal.
Fad diets can be the worst. They take advantage of people just like you by relying on shame, guilt, and iffy science. You’ve known this for a long time… but Five Journeys is here to shout it loud and proud. Fad diets don’t work!
Instead of throwing your money at a new “system” promising impossible results, what if there werea straightforward way to improve how you eat and feel? There is, and it begins with functional nutrition coaching.
Our nutritionist becomes your personal cheerleader to help you reach your health goals. We don’t pressure you to try crazy meal plans or bizarre weight loss accessories. Just straightforward and manageable nutrition programs where you’ll:
- Continue eating food that tastes great
- Make progress with personal accountability. Our approach is guilt-free!
- Uncover hidden food allergies and intolerances
- Detox from mold, metals, and other environmental toxins
- Rebuild your gut and start feeling your best.
We know you’re looking to live a healthy life in Boston, and nutrition is the cornerstone of any vital lifestyle. Climbing the corporate ladder? Feel more energy as you dazzle your next client. Need to cut brain fog to pass college calculus? We help you eat more brain foods. Running the marathon that is coordinating after-school kids’ activities? We’ve got you!

A Nutritionist Can Help You Kick Slow Weight Loss and Fatigue to the Curb.Boston is home to some of the world’s best hospitals and medical professionals, but living in the city doesn’t mean you’re free from illness. Unfortunately, mainstream medicine often fails its patients, especially when it comes to the gut. Modern diets full of high-processed foods can damage the healthy bacteria we need to convert food into energy. And before you think that the gut ends at the stomach, remember that your digestive microbiome can affect your sleep, mood, nerves, and other functions.
Do you struggle with any of these symptoms?
- Inability to lose weight
- Inability to gain weight
- Food intolerances
- Mood swings
If you answered “Yes” to any of these symptoms, then a certified nutritionist from Five Journeys may be able to work with you to discover the root cause of your discomfort.
Why working with a Nutritionist is Better than Following a Lousy Fad DietToo many people in Boston (and elsewhere!) try to lose weight by following diets they find online or in magazines. But did you know that these simple diets may be adding to your fatigue, stress, and gut symptoms? That’s right. Your diet might be keeping you from the life you’ve always wanted!
Our functional medicine doctors know that fad diets can severely undermine your health goals:
- Many popular diets restrict your vitamin and nutrient intake.
- Fad diets encourage binge eating.
- Fad diets can’t pinpoint health issues beyond the food you eat.
- An expensive subscription drains your wallet and makes effective healthcare less affordable.
- Fad diets incorrectly focus on your weight instead of overall health and can adversely affect your mental health.
It’s time to say goodbye to fad diets and say hello to your new Five Journeys nutritionist! We want you to feel your best – physically, mentally, and emotionally. This means reframing your diet from “losing weight” to “healthy nutrition.” Body shaming has absolutely no place here. We meet with you either in person or online so that you feel truly seen as you navigate your nutrition journey.

Stacie Delucia, RDN
From the time I was a little girl, I loved exploring the world of food. The colors, smells, and flavors seemed to me an endless possibility of creativity and delight. I’ve carried that love with me into my professional life as a registered dietitian nutritionist. I am passionate about helping others build a healthy (and even exciting) relationship with food.
Nourishing foods don’t have to be boring, and it’s my mission to help others realize that! Fresh, whole foods are at the core of what I teach, and knowing the source of those foods is so important. The origin and environment of our food, from growth to transportation, is an important aspect of our health and wellbeing. Sustainable agriculture has become another important focus of my work and education in the practice of nutrition.
