TIFFANY HOLT, MS, RD
Integrative Registered Dietitian, Nutrition Consultant
Nutrition became a passion for Tiffany after applying “food as medicine” in her own life as a Division I soccer player facing injury. While she continues to compete in recreation soccer leagues today, she has become a professional in the nutrition world. Tiffany is an integrative registered dietitian nutritionist (RD/RDN) and research dietitian with the Centers for Integrative Nutrition and Integrative Research at UC San Diego Health and founder of her private practice at Holt Nutrition. In her current position, she splits her time between outpatient clinical care and nutrition research. Her clinical focus on evidence-based, food first, medical nutrition therapy covers a wide range of medical conditions and invites the use of diet and lifestyle to restore balance and address “dis-ease” in the body. Previous or active research projects include whole food, plant-based, and anti-inflammatory diets in the setting of hormone-related conditions, cancer, digestive diseases, eye diseases, autoimmunity, and mental health conditions.
Tiffany graduated with advanced nutrition training from Bastyr University Master’s program. While in practice, she has also completed functional nutrition training with the Institute of Functional Medicine, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and peer-to-peer mentorship with tenured RDNs. Her work experience with UC San Diego Eating Disorders Center for Treatment and Research, Bastyr Center for Natural Health (BCNH), and dietetic internship with UC San Diego Health, have been invaluable learning opportunities she uses daily as a dietitian.
She has also served as a board member and past-president with the San Diego District of the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, a state affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). Tiffany is a member of specialized Dietary Practice Groups including Dietitians in Integrative & Functional Medicine (DIFM), Research Nutrition, Cardiovascular Health and Well-being (CV-Well), and Sports and Human Performance Nutrition (SHPN). Outside of work, Tiffany enjoys family time with her husband and two kids, cooking, playing recreation soccer, running and weight training. Reading, sunshine and tending to her plants, are her restoration essentials.
