Hi! I'm Ryan. Before I started Paleo, I'd always considered myself a relatively healthy and active person, but I didn't feel happy with my relationship with food and exercise. I looked thin and healthy, but had a belly I couldn't rid of and lacked energy, especially after meals. At first, I turned toward exercise to solve my problems, which took up a ton of time. Combine that with working long hours, and I was constantly burned out.
In 2013 I spoke with a co-worker about my struggles, and she introduced me to Paleo via a blog called "Mark's Daily Apple." I was unsure about it at first, but the more I read, the more things started to make sense. I started small. I began to cut out carbs like cereal in the morning or pasta for dinner. I found out that I didn't have to feel heavy, bloated, or lethargic after eating. I could feel good!
The better I felt, the more I read. Soon I was eating 80-90% Paleo and exercising the Paleo way, which means that workouts could be fun! No more hours in the gym!
Eventually, Paleo began to be a way of life. In addition to changing my diet and exercise routines, I started incorporating yoga, setting a screen curfew, and reducing stress with meditation apps. I was feeling better than ever, seeing results, and finally spending less time exercising and thinking about food!
Naturally, people started to ask me about my Paleo habits. I realized that I wanted to help others feel as good as I did. In January 2017 I committed to becoming a Primal Health Coach™ to further my education and dedicate myself to helping others. To kick things off, I did a 21 Day Transformation Challenge to see if I could prove the results of my approach. I was incredibly encouraged to see the additional benefits I was able to obtain in just three weeks.
I love the opportunity to help people change their lives and experience the same happiness and fulfillment that I have with this program. If you're ready to start the journey towards a better quality of life in every way, let's talk!
