A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, Lara has worked in clinical settings, in dialysis centers, and in long term care facilities, but she discovered her true passion after launching her private practice (LaraClevenger.com). Lara has an undergraduate and graduate degree from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida. She is a personal Trainer through the International Sports Science Association. Lara is also a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, International Society of Sports Nutrition, and is in training to be a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT).
Lara discovered her passion for educating individuals and using a food as medicine approach to treat medical conditions. Through this she found a love of cooking, recipe development, and food photography. Lara, like Faith, previously followed a paleo-like diet, but after doing much research, she embarked on a ketogenic diet and lifestyle and found that her sugar cravings disappeared, her energy levels increased, her recovery and sports performance improved, and her insomnia disappeared while following a ketogenic lifestyle.
