Hi, I’m Jean LaMantia

Registered Dietitian | Author | Cancer Survivor | Public Speaker

Jean’s Qualifications

I am Registered Dietitian in Canada and the U.S., located in Toronto, ON., with over 20 years experience helping people to achieve their nutrition goals. I have researched and written three books on the subjects of nutrition for cancer, lymphedema and intermittent fasting entitled: The Essential Cancer Treatment Nutrition Guide and Cookbook, The Complete Lymphedema Management and Nutrition Guide and Complete Intermittent Fasting. I have also created a food and lifestyle guide designed to help cancer survivors reduce their risk of recurrence, entitled: The Cancer Risk Reduction Guide.

When I’m not writing and researching new recipes, I maintain a blog on the subject of nutrition for cancer, lymphedema and intermittent fasting and actively pursue ongoing professional education. I have created programs that you can attend live or self study that are hosted in my Just Wellness Nutrition School.  And, I am a regular speaking on the subjects of cancer and lymphedema and teach nutrition classes and provide cooking demonstrations for Wellspring Cancer Support Centres.

I graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours Bachelor of Applied Human Nutrition Degree, and completed a clinical dietetic internship at Toronto Western Hospital. I am a Registered Dietitian in good standing with the College of Dietitians of Ontario and the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
