About Victoria Coglianese, RD

Victoria is a Registered Dietitian and business owner of Wonderfully Made Nutrition. She practices a functional nutrition approach to help people with chronic gut health issues, autoimmunity, and PCOS to overcome their conditions by addressing underlying gut and hormone root causes.

She believes wholeheartedly that each person has an innate capability to thrive, and we can reclaim that by learning to confidently make connections between what our bodies experience and our food choices, health behaviors, stressors, and mindset.

Victoria considers her work a true mission in life to help people finally find freedom from complex health issues and renew their hope that they have been truly wonderfully made.

The Connection of Faith and Entrepreneurship

As a health and wellness entrepreneur, Victoria knows what it means to take chances. There are certainly times when the future seems uncertain. Victoria describes how her faith allows her to take risks and trust that God will provide. 

The truth is, as an entrepreneur you have to find it within yourself to continue on when things get tough. Knowing that your clients rely on you and you will only succeed through your own hard work can be a lot of weight to carry. This is where Victoria finds her faith to be an integral part of her continued success.


Mindset, Weight-gain, and Your Health

We also talk about a topic that is central to Victoria’s work: unwanted weight gain. At the root of her approach is mindset which centers on three Fs – faith, food, and function. Simply put, it is our beliefs that inform how we eat, which in turn affects how our bodies function. 

With this in mind, Victoria explains how being aware of yourself – your moods and feelings – throughout the day is central to reclaiming your vitality. Nothing is too small to ignore or desire for improvement. When you focus on your wellbeing and make it a priority, true and lasting healing will result.
