Hafa adai & hello, my name is Lenora Makela, and I am the owner and registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) of Eat Right Guam. Thank you for visiting the Eat Right Guam website! I hope you will find what you are looking for, and/or learn about the wonderful opportunities available here, but first, here are some brief details about me. I am born and raised on the beautiful island of Guam. I am a daughter, a mother, a wife, an athlete, and a career woman. As an RDN, I believe that balance, variety, moderation and adequacy are the fundamental principles that define my practice, in addition to mindful & instinctive eating. As a mother and wife, I understand that there is more to life than my own needs, so flexibility is vitally important. As an athlete, I know how crucial it is to obtain energy and nutrients conveniently to support training, optimal performance, as well as recovery. Last but not least, as a CHamoru and island girl, 'I know' that food is love, and is also a social experience to be shared. My goal is always to help others find foods and activities that they enjoy, that meet their needs, and that create positive environments and experiences to thrive in life. Tell me how I can help you, your family, or your group!
Nutrition is about nourishing yourself daily in a pattern that helps you flourish in life. Building a positive mindset about food and activity will help you find balance and contentment, so that you are able to eat in any environment, under any circumstance. Remember to be kind to your mind and body.
