Carissa Alinat

I am a board-certified nurse practitioner practicing in weight management, researcher, and author of “French Paleo Burn,” a two-phase weight loss program that helps people lose weight quickly without counting calories or strenuous exercise. I received my Master’s degree at the University of South Florida, where I am also a PhD candidate and have an extensive research background in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. I am board-certified in Adult Gerontology Primary Care. I have published 30+ articles in medical journals and health magazines and have presented across the United States. I am also a regular contributor for PALEO magazine with my French chef husband, Gui Alinat, who has been featured on the Food Network and HSN. Together we create healthy, delicious recipes that help people lose weight. We have 5 children together and live in Dunedin, Florida. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and travelling to our second home in the South of France.
