Robyn says she has struggled with food. Diet pills, starving herself (though that never lasted very long) and bingeing for most of her life. She says, she was constantly comparing herself (and her thighs) to others. You see, Robyn had hips and thighs and a rather generous tush at 13 years of age.
She wanted the slender boyish frame the models had and the girls that could wear anything. And then came along the no-fat craze which completely changed the way she ate . She says, she thinks she is still working to reverse some of that insane calorie damage she did to herself back then and she is trying to bring herself back to a state of balance. So how did this rollercoaster all end for Robyn? She attended the world’s leading nutrition school, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and finally learned how to get off of the rollercoaster for good. She learned how to re-eat, specifically what the right foods were for her unique body.
She ended the cycle of “good and bad phases” and has never looked back. IIN, based in New York City, is a one-of-a-kind nutrition school that integrates many dietary theories, combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies like Ayurveda and macrobiotics with modern concepts like the USDA pyramid, the glycemic index, The Zone and raw foods. Robyn is a certified health coach and member of AADP, The American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She holds a B.A. from Syracuse University. Some of her many teachers include: Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil, AnneMarie Colbin, Joel Fuhrman, Barry Sears (The Zone), Neal Barnard, Arthur Agatston (South Beach Diet), Sally Fallon, Mark Hyman, Andrea Beaman, David Katz, John Douillard, Walter Willet, Marion Nestle, Harville Hendrix.
