Ryan Fuhrman was the typical all-American dude. Raised to believe he needed meat and potatoes to survive, his claim to fame on his 18th birthday was to eat a 49 oz steak in ONE sitting.
At 6’2″ and 145 lbs. soaking wet, Ryan was determined to put muscle on his thin frame.
In spite of eating what he believed to be a healthy diet (most of the time) his level of exhaustion prevented him from living the life he knew he could.
He was misinformed about what to eat and how to eat. Frustrated with the amount of medication he needed to reduce his cholesterol; he knew he needed a change.
The more he learned about exercise and nutrition, the more he realized how much he still didn’t know.
Thus began his journey into nutrition. He took a close look at what he ate in order to educate himself on how to properly fuel his body.
It took some thorough investigating and retraining of his food values. It wasn’t until he switched to a plant based diet that he immediately felt better. Within one week, he noticed positive benefits.
Since that time he has reshaped his diet and now coaches others who want to eat plant based.
On October 13th, 2014 he was certified as a Plant Based Nutritionist through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. This is the leading authority on Plant Based Nutrition in association with Cornell University.
He is also a certified Personal Trainer through ACTION.
