Tallene Hacatoryan

Registered Dietitian

Tallene Hacatoryan (she/her) is a PCOS Weight Loss registered dietitian and a strong believer that you don’t just have to live with PCOS; you can thrive with PCOS. She was diagnosed at age 18, and left scared and confused without much information or guidance from her practitioner.

Unsatisfied with the generally-accepted belief that birth control is the only way to manage a PCOS diagnosis (and disheartened after failed attempts at weight loss through excessive exercise and dieting), Tallene decided to look for alternative options.

She studied nutritional science and became a dietitian, gathering information from her studies, speaking extensively with various health experts, and working with clients one-on-one.

She discovered that eliminating gluten and dairy was a huge key to living healthier with PCOS, and together with her husband Sirak (a PCOS-focused personal trainer), developed a program meant to make living with the diagnosis easier to both understand and embrace.
