Tom Ring

““Depending on what they are, our habits will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.” -Sean Covey

Background

Several years ago, Tom realized that the combination of good nutrition and regular exercise was the most powerful prescription for promoting lifelong health and wellness. Many health conditions typically managed with medications can often be more effectively addressed through better food choices and moderate increases in daily physical activity. He found this fact inspiring and something well worth sharing with anyone who would listen.

  • Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics)
  • BS in Dietetics & Nutritional Science (University of Vermont)
