I’m known as The Transformational Nutritionist™. I help women ditch their unhealthy, bloated, tired bodies and going-through-the-motions lives. In exchange, they get a kick-ass, turn cartwheels in the street, vibrant body coupled with a life that radiates authenticity, happiness, and purpose without deprivation or compromise. I encourage you to celebrate YOU (the real you) with reckless abandon – daily.
I do more than tell you what to eat. The thing that really lights me up is helping you repair your relationship with food and empowering you with the ability to discover your authentic self and live your life’s purpose.
You see its part science and part trusting your feminine instincts. It’s about knowing what works for YOUR body and YOUR life. It’s about slinging the door to your future wide open and finally, FINALLY stepping into your greatness.
I believe that changing your body empowers you to change your life. You know, decide to live on your terms, go for your dreams, stop holding back and play full out. Changing your life will inspire and influence those around you – including the next generation – and THAT is how we will change the world. One mother, sister, wife and child at a time.
Be the example for those around you. Know you’re part of something bigger.
Oh… lots of things. Just like lots of things make YOU special.
When it comes to changing bodies and transforming lives, I have a ton of education, fancy schmancy training, and well over 15 years of hands-on, digging in the trenches experience.
However, what really makes me special is that I have x-ray vision. I can see through the self-doubting, self-loathing, disparaged you to the You 2.0 that lives a kick-ass, take names kind of life empowered by your own choices.
If you could see the you that I see, you would be in awe of yourself.
You see, “healthy” isn’t just a term for your body. Your body is just one part. Being truly “healthy” is living every day of your life passionately, lovingly, mindful, open, energized, and alive and enjoying every tiny detail of the process. It’s living authentically, connecting with your body so deeply that you know without a question what it needs at any given moment.
It’s discovering the life of your dreams, and then hopping on that pony and riding with your skirt flying in the wind (or up over your head, if you so desire).
Money-wise, I was born into a whole lot of nothing. But, I was rich beyond my wildest dreams when it came to authentic living and healthy eating. My family grew their own food (out of necessity, not because they were interested in living “healthy”) and trips to the supermarket were only to pick up the basics like flour and corn meal.
But there was more than that… You see, where I grew up, you were who you were and you didn’t apologize for it. You didn’t have to have a college degree on the wall or a successful business to be “somebody”. No one really had anything so we were all on equal playing ground. You were just you.
Now, I didn’t have this awareness at the time. I was five. I loved candy (in the rare instance that we actually got it), cherished Christmas, and played outside from sunrise ‘til sunset. I was carefree and life was simple. Honest. Good.
There were fast food joints to be found, teenage phases to go through, a better (read: more complex) life to make for myself. So I did.
I headed to college, tried the corporate route and found out that just wasn’t my thing. A windowless office and 60 hour work weeks? No, thanks. Time to move on.
I headed to Hollywood, was a model, did some television hosting, hung out with movie stars, rock stars, and tried hard to be just like everyone else. Different is… well, different. Not good – or so I thought.
I gained over 25 pounds, had cystic acne, eczema, and cellulite in places I didn’t know you could get cellulite.
My hair was breaking and falling out. I battled eating disorders. I was always exhausted – physically and mentally, depressed, and even suicidal at times.
I tried every diet known to man, saw doctors, nutritionists, trainers, healers, and each one of them seemed to have a piece of the puzzle but no one could put them together.
I threw myself into studying, researching, experimenting. I tested theories, thoughts, and beliefs.What I found wasn’t just a way to lose weight, clear my skin, get rid of that pesky cellulite, and heal my mind.
I also found something I realized I had been looking for all of my adult life…
I was finally free from obsessing over food all day and night, worrying about everything I put in my mouth, and counting every calorie. I no longer cared about what anyone thought. I didn’t want to be like everyone else.
I finally discovered that it was time to be ME. Little ‘ol, not-always-perfect-but-trying-really-darn-hard-and-thats-ok ME!
I was now living life on my own terms – healthy, happy, real, and free.
To celebrate what I had learned and to show others how great food and healthy living could be, I created the only program that specializes in helping women get rid of Weight Loss Resistance Disorder™ (the disorder I discovered while going through my own struggle) so they can slim down, boost energy, and repair their body from the inside out by combining science-based techniques with holistic modalities. I called it “Break Through Weight Loss Resistance Disorder®”. To date, this program has helped thousands reclaim their health and their lives.
I also worked with my handsome hubby, Andrew, to create the world’s first USDA certified organic cleansing company – called SoCal Cleanse® – where we focus on not just creating a renewed body but a nourished lifestyle without starving, juicing, fasting, or deprivation.
SoCal Cleanse has become an award-winning company with customers all over the globe and numerous celebrity fans.
In October 2010, I gave birth to my most perfect creation, my daughter, Rain. She is my greatest teacher.
The end of 2011 resulted in me finally publishing a book I had been working on for years – the best-selling PINK Method®. PINK Method is a weight loss program designed specifically for women and I’m thrilled to say it’s changed hundreds of thousands of lives!
My latest book, The Hungry Hottie Cookbook was launched in December 2012 and I couldn’t be more excited! It features 110 quick and delicious, fat-burning, soul-sizzling recipes to radically transform your body, ignite your spirit and give your divine self some good old-fashioned lovin’.
I’m also fortunate to be called upon as a health and wellness expert by the media regularly. I’m eternally grateful that they give me an outlet for sharing my message of hope, freedom, and wellness all over the world!
I’ve been very lucky (thanks Universe – you wild and crazy son of a gun) to be able to help hundreds of thousands of people transform their lives. And now, what I’m really digging, is teaching other people to do it too!
I’m on a mission to change the way we think about health and wellness AND the way we live so I’ve designed a holistic nutrition and life coaching system called Transformational Nutrition™. It’s based on over 15 years of testing, research, and coaching women to become their healthiest, most empowered selves. It focuses on capitalizing on the connection between the four levels of health, wellness, and feminine being and is revolutionizing the wellness industry.
Housed at The Institute of Transformational Nutrition, the Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach™ program accepted its first round of students in 2011 and we are looking forward to rolling it out to the masses in early 2013. (Email us at email@example.com if you’re interested in the details – it’s filling up fast!)
So… that’s about it. That’s who I am, where I came from, and what I’m up to these days. I’m always changing, creating, and challenging myself so this is far from my whole story. There’s many more amazing twists and turns to come (and miles to go before I sleep).

“Cynthia’s programs and private sessions go way beyond helping you lose the unwanted fat; her programs really help you reflect on who you are, where you want to be in life, and where food and your dreams/goals fit into your everyday life. She helped me find the strength inside of me to make healthier choices in life and most of all to really go after my dreams.”
