My name is Amy Layne and I am a Holistic Nutritionist based in Vancouver, BC Canada. My partner is Dr. David Duizer and together we founded DAMYHealth.com
in 2009. Since that time I have been coaching women all over the world through my signature online natural weight loss program The Bikini Body Program.
At our blog on DAMYHealth.com we have been featuring my secretly healthy vegan, vegetarian and gluten free recipes since we started our company and they have been a huge success. To date they have generated over 15.5 million views and many have hundreds of thousands of pins on Pinterest. This all began after I transformed my own life, became completely vegan and lost 30lbs. I wanted to share my whole-food, all-natural ingredient recipes with the world and my online community began to grow.
My specialty became healthy dupes of famous desserts, treats and guilty pleasure recipes. I am a firm believer that you can be healthy, lose weight and lead a fit lifestyle while enjoying decadent treats. This is how I became The Healthy Rebel.
In 2012 we began getting requests for a recipe app from our global community. We had no developing experience but really wanted to provide this as we firmly believe that mobile is in higher demand than ever. Like everything in business we wanted to design and develop the app ourselves so in November of 2014 we decided it was time.
That is when we started to put together our iOS and Android App - The Healthy Rebel - 300+ Secretly healthy, delicious, whole-food recipes. We launched in mid-May 2015 and within 2 hours it had jumped to number 1 on the Canadian Food & Drink iTunes Charts (ahead of Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Martha Stewart) and number 3 on the Google Play Lifestyle Charts.
We were so proud and excited to have had such a successful launch and are now ready to share The Healthy Rebel app with the world!
