Catherine (Cat) Ebeling is an RN with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, with a background in physical therapy and over twelve years in the fitness business.
After learning that she had several food allergies at the age of 20, as well as celiac disease-a serious autoimmune disease of the GI tract in which the body attacks the digestive system, she set out to look for solutions. Undiagnosed celiac disease can lead to severe malnutrition, osteoporosis, anemia and many other serious diseases, including cancer.
Not willing to sit around waiting for her health to deteriorate, she studied every nutrition and diet book available in search of the answers to her health problems.
Cat has had more than thirty years of intense study in diet, nutrition, disease and natural alternatives to drugs. As a part of the medical community, it was clear that there was a lot of ignorance among doctors and her peers regarding nutrition and health, so she often became a resource for both doctors, other nurses, and patients for their dietary concerns.
Through the study of diet and health, as well as her work as a fitness professional, she has learned tried and true ways to lose weight, look great, feel young and have tons of energy.
This "simple, smart, nutritional" approach has created real results for many people.
In addition, she has helped many people overcome their health issues and avoid harmful medications and the resulting negative side effects.
Catherine graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Nursing ('05) from St. Louis University, a prestigious medical and scientific university. She also has a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Ball State University in Indiana. She is certified as a Personal Trainer by the American Council on Exercise.
As a mother of 20, 19 and 17 year old children, she had to fight to lose weight after having children, and now is back to the size she was in high school and every bit as fit. Cat has been an athlete since she was a child, participating in track as a sprinter and hurdler, and also gymnastics and cheerleading. Throughout her active adulthood, she has pursued many activities including running, weight lifting, aerobics, water skiing, and snow skiing. She now races mountain, cyclocross and road bikes against women half her age, and often wins.
Cat attributes her success in athletics as well as her youthful, healthy outlook on life to a healthy diet and exercise.
