Josh Gitalis

Evidence-based Clinical Nutritionist

Josh has always been fascinated with the fields of sports, fitness, and nutrition. He began studies in these areas at the University of Western Ontario, receiving an honors degree in kinesiology (Ba.H).

After graduating University, Josh began working as a fitness coach. He also went on to qualify as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) helping clients reach their physical goals. Over time, Josh realized that just as important as “working-out” is “working-in”, and became a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP).

Josh runs a private practice based in Metro Toronto and teaches Clinical Nutrition at the Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine and the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. He is also the author and instructor of two professional courses entitled "Nutrition in Practice" and "Therapeutic Nutrition and Supplements in Practice".
