Meet Filomena Vernace-Inserra, Registered Dietitian (RD)

Filomena has supported her clients in achieving their health goals for over 27 years.

After experiencing the devastating effects of Type 2 diabetes in her beloved grandmother, she became inspired to further understand the therapeutic relationship between food, diet and disease.

A graduate of the Nutritional Sciences program at Ryerson University (1993) and the Toronto General Hospital Internship Program (1994), Filomena has published two research articles in scientific journals that investigate adherence factors to calcium recommendations in women attending the Multidisciplinary Osteoporosis Program at Women’s College Hospital.

Her passion and commitment as a Registered Dietitian were further explored with clinical experience in the areas of Renal, Cardiology, Women’s Health, Breast Cancer and Osteoporosis.

After 11 years of full-time in-patient and out-patient hospital experience, Filomena went on to open her private practice where she now operates out of 3 offices located in Vaughan (main), Bolton and Toronto, Ontario, as well as through Virtual Nutrition Consulting sessions to best support the diverse needs and lifestyles of her clients.

As of today, Filomena has coached thousands of individuals, couples, students and public groups with a fun and easy-to-understand educational approach.

A dedicated mother of 2 teenagers, Filomena understands the struggles of balancing day-to-day life and strives to support the community in any way that she can. Recipient of the client-nominated Healthy & H.O.T. (Helping Others Too) Award in York Region, and contributor to the “Healthy School Committee” at a local elementary school of 800 students, Filomena is committed to teaching sustainable solutions and willingly accepts university and college nutrition students for mentorship opportunities.

From tailored nutrition coaching and educational workshops to curated recipe books and effective meal planning tools – Filomena is known for her warm personality, fluency in English and Italian, compassionate leadership and extensive knowledge in health and nutrition.

Filomena is a licensed Craving Change™ facilitator and a member in good standing with the College of Dietitians of Ontario and Dietitians of Canada professional groups including the Diabetes, Obesity, Cardiovascular, Sports Nutrition and Consulting Dietitians of Ontario Networks.

Nutrigenomix™ Genetic Testing

Nutrigenomics is a new scientific discipline that uses modern genomics technology to study the relationship between genes, nutrition and health.

To move this genetic research from the laboratory to the clinic, Nutrigenomix Inc. (a University of Toronto biotechnology startup) has empowered registered dietitians and their clients with comprehensive, reliable, genomic information using small, non-invasive saliva samples.

With a Nutrigenomix™ test kit, Filomena counsels her clients according to their unique genetic profile with the ultimate goal of improving your health through personalized nutrition. Contact >>

Most Canadian adults do not receive the recommended amount of magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin D, fibre and potassium from their everyday diets.


No gimmicks. No fads. No deprivation.

At Inner Health Nutrition Consulting, we take a “whole-istic” approach.

While fad diets never work long-term (and can be severely damaging to your health), Filomena encourages a balanced approach to healthy, portion-controlled meals using her “70+ Easy, Enjoyable & Nutritiously Energizing Recipes” E-Book, as well as her “Your Dietitian-Approved Grocery Shopping Guide”:


“I found Filomena through google search and word of mouth, I must say she has been the key to my weight loss journey! I had been16 months postpartum and had found it extremely difficult to lose the last bit of baby weight through vigorous exercise. Filomena has helped me reached my goal to my pre-baby weight! I feel great and amazing and can finally fit into my clothes again! She has taught me the importance of nutrition and how exercise alone, just won’t cut it! Thank you Filomena for being an amazing coach! I highly recommend her if you are looking for real results! It is not a diet, it is a healthy lifestyle :)” – Oct 2020

Mia Le

“Filomena is that best friend who you could count on for any question or concern. Throughout the 6-month program, she was very compassionate, thorough, patient, relatable, and very informative. I appreciated that she took her time to understand her client’s needs, mindsets and lifestyle, and developed a tailored and sustainable meal plan. You didn’t feel like you were following a plan/list, but more like a balanced lifestyle while still enjoying your favourite foods. Every session was always an eye-opener, and with her personable and open personality, you could talk to her about anything. This is a very personal journey but with Filomena guiding you, you’ll reach your goals. You’ll learn so much more about yourself and your capabilities in the most sustainable way. Thank you Filomena!” – Dec 2020

Sona Miglani

“I cannot thank Filomena enough for this amazing journey I’ve been on and continue to be on. I’ve not only lost weight but Filomena has helped me with my relationship not only with food but also my with my personal relationships. She has shown me how important it is to care about myself and my body. She is a fountain of information and so knowledgeable. She is passionate about what she does and she truly cares about her clients and wants them to succeed in their journey. She is always ready to answer questions and concerns her clients may have. Thank you Filomena!” – March 2021

Elsa Iafrate

“I don’t use the word “life-altering” often with respect to Health Professionals but in this case how Filomena was able to reshape my life since we began working together in April of 2019 was nothing short of evolutionary. Filomena took me on as a client in total “life-distress” and immediately took control of the process with a firm and professional hand, stayed compassionately invested and communicated openly throughout our time together (which ended in July 2020), and absolutely shocked me with how rigorous dedication to an overall wellness plan could not only meet but exceed my expectations. I went from being an obese late-40’s male riddled with health and psychological issues to a physically fit and mentally strong 50-year old male with the same body type that I enjoyed in my mid-30’s.” – Nov 2020

Paolo LaMonica

“Filomena is the most wonderful and most patient dietitian. She genuinely cares about you being your best and healthiest self. I’m making meals I wouldn’t think to make for myself normally, and I feel like I’m on the right track because of everything she’s instilling. She really makes you think outside the box, and she’s full of so much knowledge! Its not about dieting, it’s about an entire lifestyle change. With her help I’m going to be able to be my best self not just for me, but for my daughter too. She’s truly amazing, and I’m so beyond appreciative.” – Oct 2020

Monica R.

“For someone who has never been to a dietitian, we found a gem of a person in Filomena. She is absolutely brilliant in what she does, helps to understand your meals better, and gives a positive push towards your own health. Her detailed meal plans are easy to follow and our sessions kept us on track. Thanks for helping us reach our health goals. Cheers!”  – May 2020

Manpreet Oberoi

“I have been seeing Filomena since July of 2017. I returned this past April, in the right mind set, I have had great success. Filomena did not judge me, get upset, or put me down. She just listened. Filomena did not put me on a diet, because diets don’t work. She has been teaching me strategies for a healthy life style. Filomena has helped me understand my relationship with food. As a result, when I am saying NO to something, I am saying yes to ME. Filomena is supportive, compassionate and flexible. She not only encourages a healthy lifestyle, however, also models one. I am more active and more. So far I am down 25 pounds. Thank you Fimomena for providing a supportive, non judgmental environment for Clients.” – March 2020

Carm Tucci

“I highly recommend Inner Health Nutrition. Filomena has been very supportive in my healthy living journey. She was instrumental in helping me finally achieve my goal after decades of yoyo diets. The one on one sessions were crucial. Filomena is always available to answer any questions or offer words of encouragement. Thank you Filomena for helping me get healthier!” – March 2020
