How to find the right nutrition plan for you
"A nutrition plan created just for you!"
YOURishment was founded in 2016 by Monica Pirez Garcia. I am a Registered Dietitian that enjoys helping others through nutrition.
While working as a Structural Engineer for more than 20 years in Miami, I opened a personal training studio with my partner and quickly fell in love with fitness and all things related to nutrition. I took the leap and went back to college to earn my Master's in Nutrition and Dietetics in 2010. During this time, my sister was diagnosed with cancer (she is now cancer free!). This furthered my interest in nutrition and it's impact on health and disease.
After moving to New York City and having my second daughter, I felt extreme fatigue and was having difficulty losing the 40 lbs I had gained during my pregnancy. I decided to test my dna and my micronutrients and discovered the causes. My Vitamin K deficiency and excessive intake of carbohydrates (according to my dna, I should choose more fats over carbs), was contributing to the lousy way I was looking and feeling. Making minor changes helped turn things around and I am feeling and looking better then ever.
Seeing what an impact these changes had in my life was the inspiration to start my own company that would offer everyone the same testing that helped me discover my own issues. YOURishment was created to help you find your own way of eating and exercising that is based exclusively on your dna and body chemistry. No more generic advice on what people should be eating - now we can design the perfect plan just for you!
