Mira Calton, CN, FAAIM, DCCN, CMS, CPFC, BCIH is a Licensed Certified Nutritionist, a Fellow of the American Association of Integrative Medicine, a Diplomate of the College of Clinical Nutrition, a Board Certified Micronutrient Specialist, Certified Personal Fitness Chef, and is Board Certified in Integrative Health. She holds a Diploma in Comprehensive Nutrition from Huntington College of Health Sciences, and has completed the Yale University School of Medicine’s OWCH (Online Weight Management Counseling for Healthcare Providers) program and sits on the American Board of Integrative Health (ABIH). Mira’s interest in the world of nutrition came by way of personal experience. Prior to beginning her life in the nutritional spotlight, she owned and ran her own successful public relations firm in Manhattan specializing in high-end fashion, film and restaurant promotion. She traveled and lectured extensively through out Canada and the United States to large corporate clients such as Johnson and Johnson, Price Waterhouse Coopers, CitiGroup and ING direct. However, her bustling career came to an abrupt halt when she was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 30. No longer able to run the thriving public relations firm that she had worked so hard to build, Mira went on a mission outside of the traditional medical community to find an answer to her dismal diagnosis. Her drive and determination led her all the way to Orlando, Florida where she met nutritional guru, Jayson Calton. The two worked together to create a drug-free, micronutrient based program, which not only completely reversed Mira’s advanced osteoporosis, but also inspired them both to make the study of micronutrient deficiency the focus of their lives.

In 2005, the Caltons were married and set sail on an unconventional honeymoon, a 100-country, 7-continent, 6-year global expedition they called “The Calton Project.” Their goal was to observe people from vastly different regions in remote, semi-remote, and urban settings, to discover how specific dietary patterns and lifestyle choices effected the development of modern disease. From camel treks thru the Sahara to visit troglodyte dwellings in Tunisia to five-hour canoe rides deep into the Amazon jungle to study the remote tribes surviving there, the Caltons have ventured farther and longer than they could have ever imagined. The result is a unique global perspective on nutrition, a new understanding about diet as a whole, which has brought them to where they are today.

As the authors of the bestselling book, NAKED CALORIES, and founders of Calton Nutrition and the Calton Institute of Lifestyle Medicine, the Caltons dedicate themselves to their belief that micronutrient deficiency is the most widespread and dangerous health condition of the 21st century. They continue their work as private consultants teaching their trademark4SEASONSFORLIFE™ nutritional lifestyle program to a worldwide clientele. They are currently launching their Certified Micronutrient Specialist (CMS) Professional Certificate Program through the Calton Institute of Lifestyle Medicine and writing their soon to be released second book RICH FOOD, POOR FOOD. As innovators in the field of dietary supplement science, the Caltons have identified and mapped out dozens of micronutrient competitions. They have applied for a U.S patent based on their original research on micronutrient competition and are the formulators of nutreince™, the world’s first multivitamin with Anti-Competition™ technology.

Always working as a team, the Caltons are columnists, contributing editors and quoted experts in multiple local and national publications and media outlets, including FOX and FRIENDS, Happening Now, Headline News, The Daily Buzz, Daytime, NBC, ABC, Body Checklist, AOL Travel, Shape, HealthystyleNY, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jetsetter, 1000 things to do before you die and many more. In addition they write, Optimal Life, their blog which will cover a variety of nutritional and health related topics including diet, supplementation, weight loss, fitness, and wellness travel.
