Hello my friends!
I am a Registered Dietitian (not nutritionist, which could mean someone picked up a book, read it and then called himself a nutritionist). I graduated from C.W. Post College with a Bachelors Degree in Nutrition. I decided to torture myself with an additional two more years of college and obtained a Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology.
After an unforgettable one year (unpaid) internship, I took my four hour exam and poof! R.D. has followed my last name for the past twenty-five years. Eight years ago, I became certified with ACE as a personal trainer.
I want the world to learn that they can stop dieting, lose weight and enjoy their food if they would just learn to watch their portions and eat nutritious (delicious) whole foods. If exercise made it into their lives as often as they watched TV, they’d feel healthier, less tired, have fewer diseases and find incredible strength within themselves.
I plan to teach you, one lesson at a time, how you can slowly change your behaviors and lifestyles and spend the rest of your years enjoying your lives. Nutrition & exercise is the sauce and the cheese on your pizza, but there are so many other toppings that can be added to bring you a full happy life.
In addition to Nutrition and Exercise advice, I plan to share stories of motivation, humor and inspiration to help you realize there’s so much more that you are capable of if you just turn off that negative brain inside you and replace it with positive vibes.
ENJOY THE RIDE!
