Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.
I love to get to know everyone who is becoming part of Live Well With Ruthie, so here are a few bits to get to know me.
I’m Ruth Hetherington, a Clinical Nutritionist based in Dublin, Ireland. I grew up in a small town called Drogheda in Louth and moved to Dublin with my Meath husband 6 years ago to follow my career in the nutrition industry.
I became OBSESSED with health and nutrition about 10 years ago and started studying Clinical Nutrition in the UK in my late 20s after I decided my original college course wasn’t for me. Sorry to my parents for that!!
I love fixing people and it all started with my Granny. We were thick as thieves and she was my absolute best friend in the world. I was always afraid she would get sick so I was constantly on her back about what she should be eating, what supplements she should be taking. Basically annoying the life out of the poor woman!! I loved trying to help her and so my journey to nutrition began and I decided to start studying it. My gran sadly passed away suddenly almost 7 years ago, but my passion continued to grow.
While I was studying, I started working for a Neutraceutical company that specialised in weight loss products. This really opened my eyes to the nutrition and weight loss industry and gave me a wealth of knowledge and experience.
In 2015, I created my own weight loss product that went on to win 5 awards and I developed a range of supplements.
I’ve now moved on to nutrition, lifestyle and weight loss coaching because I genuinely want to help people live better lives through good nutrition and by implementing what I’ve learned over the last number of years.
For me, it’s not just about a number on the scales. It’s about a healthy mindset, a healthy and informed approach to weight loss and an overall healthy body. Not just one that looks good in a bikini. Living well starts with the inside, all the way from your mind. And that’s what I’m here to do. I’m here to help you Live Well With Ruthie.
