About New Leaf Nutrition LLC

Welcome to New Leaf Nutrition LLC!

 

My Name is Julia Hincman-Francavilla, proud founder and owner of New Leaf Nutrition LLC. I am a Registered Dietitian, licensed in the state of Massachussetts and a graduate of Boston University where I received my Bachelor's and Master's in Nutrition. Furthermore, I am certified as a Specialist in Oncology Nutrition and a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I have 14 years of experience as a Registered Dietitian and six of those as an Outpatient Oncology Dietitian at Massachusetts General Hospital managing nutrition for adults and children through cancer treatments.  Additionally, I am an adjunct professor at Suffolk University where I teach an Introduction Nutrition Class to upperclassmen with science majors.

 

As a former Oncology Dietitian and cancer survivor, I feel fortunate to have helped my patients through this difficult period with real advice and realistic goals.  I have always felt that there is a strong need for "anticancer" nutrition before (pre-diagnosis), and after treatments so that people can be empowered to help themselves. Research has shown that nutrition is vital in prevention of cancer and prevention of recurrance of cancer. My goal is to utilize the oncology experience I have and apply it to my clients so that whatever your goal is (weight loss, weight gain, sports nutrition, etc.) you can be confident that there is a strong element of anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic nutrition to help prevent chronic disease, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.. 

Additionally, I am a former division one college track and field and cross country athlete at Boston University. Running is my passion!  Since I began racing at an early age, I have competed in and completed six marathons and countless other races - from 1 mile up to marathon distance. I currently enjoying the aftermath after a wonderful run at my second Boston Marathon 2016. When I am not practicting nutrition and running, I am happiest traveling, eating and making delicious food, hiking and camping, skiing, boating, yoga-ing, swimming, and being with the people I care about.
