Maryann Walsh, MFN, RD, CDE
Maryann Walsh is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Diabetes Educator who owns her own nutrition consulting firm based in Palm Beach, Florida.
Originally born and raised in the tiny state of Rhode Island, Maryann grew up in a household of “serial dieters”, which led her to become increasingly intrigued by the mystique around weight loss and weight management that eluded not only members of her family such as her brother and her father, but so many people she met as well. Maryann became infatuated with learning everything she could about nutrition, diet and behavior change and how she could simplify it
not only for herself and her brother and father who struggled with their weight but for others as well.
Maryann went on to complete dual bachelors degrees in Biological Sciences and Nutrition and Dietetics as well as a Masters Degree in Food and Nutrition and is currently working towards her Doctorate in Psychology. Maryann has lent her expertise to numerous online and print publications including Huffington Post, Shape and Men’s Journal as well as to news network affiliate appearances on NBC, CBS and ABC.
As a subject matter expert in nutrition and weight management, Maryann has worked with brands such as SlimFast, Glanbia Nutritionals, Sprouts Farmers Market, Vitamin Shoppe and
Breyers Ice Cream among others where she provided representation in publications, copywriting, product and program development as well as social media content creation.
Maryann’s approach to nutrition and weight loss is that it is not one-size fits all: we are all unique, we all live unique lives and all have unique sets of circumstances and resources. Maryann’s goal is to always simplify the numerous approaches to nutrition and/or weight loss in order to make it a lifelong lifestyle change versus something overly complicated and impossible to stick to!
Maryann’s never ending quest to simplify health and wellness shows in her recipe creations: simple meals often with beauty-boosting ingredients such as salmon, pomegranate, nuts, berries and leafy greens.
In her almost 10 years as a Registered Dietitian, Maryann has helped thousands lose weight and create a better relationship with food such as the new mom of twins in Rhode Island who was able to lose 70 lbs and has been keeping it off for 4 years now as well as the recently retired nurse in Boca Raton who wanted to feel great in a swimsuit on the beach with her grandkids and who lost 40 lbs off of her petite frame and has never felt better!
Aside from nutrition, Maryann loves all things beauty, is a motivational book junkie and is an avid supporter of domestic violence advocacy organizations.
