A nutritionist has opened a new office in downtown Fairfield, offering weight-loss programs that she said don't require dieting.

Annette Alfieri Nutrition offers weight-loss classes and one-on-one consultations in a 500-square-foot office and classroom facility at 61 Sherman St., third floor.

Alfieri holds a master's degree in nutrition and has been a practicing nutritionist since 2008.

Classes are offered in the morning and evening, and one-on-one consultations are available by appointment. Additionally, noontime support groups will be available along with evening workshops on topics such as nutrition, motivation and awareness.

Alfieri's approach, according to a news release, is to determine how and why a client's "love-hate relationship" with food started and address personal habits, exercise, lifestyle and nutrition in an effort to make permanent changes.

She formerly operated MindBodyWhole LLC.
