Laura is a three-time author, with her most recent book, the Women’s Health Body Clock Diet, having been released December 22, 2015. Due to the success of this cutting-edge chrononutrition book, it can be found on the front tables of NYC’s Barnes and Noble stores. This transformational book teachers the reader to reset the twenty-four-hour body clock through six weeks of meal “structures” and using Laura’s Positive Nutrition approach based on science, mindfulness, and compassion. This is the only book on the market that has been written by a RD, CDE, and CEDRD combining factual endocrine discoveries, food, recipes, and tools to compliment these hormone fluctuations.
She is the co-author of the Diabetes Comfort Food Diet with the editors of Prevention magazine. This book was originally offered only to the Prevention audience. Due to its success, it is now being offered to the public and can be found online at Amazon or your local bookstore.
In an effort to promote a positive relationship with food and body, Laura also created the lesson book Healthy Habits, an eight-week children’s program educating adults on how to teach children about nutrition and health with a positive, weight-neutral approach. This valuable instructional tool fosters positive approaches to teaching the feeding/eating of all foods and is further supported by Laura’s personal blog, formerly Mom Dishes It Out, and now available through www.LauraCipullo.com.
