Ryan has wide range of cooking styles, flavors and techniques. Someone once said that you cannot trust a skinny chef, however about 6 years ago Ryan found out he was pre diabetic, had high cholesterol and blood pressure and if he didn't change his lifestyle soon he could have a heart attack at an early age. This is the point from where he started to do research on what was healthy and what was not and taking a hard look at what was going on in the food world nutrition. Sticking to the paleo diet and choosing healthier choices Ryan’s health has turned for the better and with great results he decided to help others change their focus. In the process of making his personal dietary changes Ryan got certified as a Crossfit coach, which made him even more passionate in helping people achieve their best physical self.
