Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD, is the creator of the popular F-Factor Diet, the only dietitian-created program for weight-loss and optimal health that is based on fiber-rich nutrition. She works in private practice in Manhattan, and is the author of The Miracle Carb Diet: Make Calories & Fat Disappear – with Fiber! (Hyperion 2012) and The F-Factor Diet (Putnam 2006).
The F-Factor Diet evolved from Tanya’s years working with patients to help lower cholesterol or control diabetes. She found that all of her patients improved their clinical conditions – and lost weight without hunger– by following a lifestyle diet that was rich in dietary fiber.
In 2011, Tanya introduced F-Factor high fiber bars in partnership with Hain Celestial Group. She is the first registered dietitian to have her own line of grocery products in national distribution.
Tanya frequently appears on national television, including: ABC Live with Kelly; The Dr. Oz Show; NBC Today Show; CBS Early Show; ABC The View; Rachael Ray; ABC Good Morning America; CBS Evening News; and Fox/The O’Reilly Factor; Telemundo.
Tanya is a nutrition news contributor to Fox News Channel and writes the network’s nutrition blog. She also writes for KeyVive (diabetes lifestyle), Fox News Magazine, Mensfitness.com, DrManny.com, and Huffington Post. Tanya serves on the Advisory Board for Women’s Health magazine (Rodale), and she is the Official Dietitian to the Miss Universe Organization (Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA). Tanya was a judge at the 2012 Miss Teen USA pageant.
Tanya holds a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Studies from New York University and completed a two-year dietetic internship at NYU Medical Center. She is an accredited member of the American Dietetic Association, the Greater New York Dietetic Association, and a member of the National Association of Professional Women.
