Hey There! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Ryan McGrath. I am a Nutrition and Lifestyle Counselor specializing in Weight Loss & Cleansing and a board certified member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I work with women who are fed up with dieting and are ready to make real changes in order to receive real results by teaching them how to achieve a cleansing lifestyle.
I received my training through the the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the State University of New York Purchase (SUNY) where I obtained my certification in integrative nutrition and became a certified holistic health coach. I have also studied the importance of raw foods and am a certified Detox Chef through the Rose Culinary Institute developed by Clinical Nutritionist and Detox Expert, Natalia Rose. I am also a Living on Live Foods Chef and Instructor through Alissa Cohen .
If you are anything like me, you want to know the dirt. The details of how I arrived here and why I coach.
I jumped on the dieting roller coaster at 18 years old when I went away to college and gained 25 pounds. The yo-yo dieting began and the fat talk started, as did my obsession with the scale. I went through phases of weight loss shakes, calorie restriction, tiny microwaveable meals and laxatives. This continued throughout college and followed me into Corporate America where it seemed to get so much harder. Longer hours at my desk meant less time to exercise and plan meals. The stress at work didn’t help either. I would go through cycles of weight loss and weight gain and continued to beat myself up over the size of my clothes or the number on my scale. Food would sometimes be my best friend or my worst enemy. I shopped emotionally, ate emotionally and drank emotionally. Yes, I had martinis at lunch, too!
Through trial and error and support (I hired a Health Coach!), I was able to find what foods worked for me and what didn’t. No more crashing at 3pm and fueling with coffee, no more “last suppers”, no more counting points and calories and no more diets! I became great friends with my plate and my body and now I want to help you do the same!
