A motivational speaker and brawn model, Ryan has been educating audiences about body image and binge eating disorder since his own diagnosis in 2015. Passionate about raising awareness of binge eating and body image issues as an Ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, he has shared his story with the Today Show, Huffington Post, and Teen Vogue, among other outlets. An LGBTQ+ man living in a larger body, Ryan also speaks to teens about masculinity, identity, and body confidence. He is currently working on a book about his and other men's experiences learning to eat mindfully and love themselves just as they are.

An entrepreneur, philanthropist, and activist, Jacob has been an active advocate for body positivity, mental and physical wellness, and the power of an individual’s resolve to overcome and utilize their adversities. Since his diagnosis in 2016 while serving in the United States Navy, Jacob has worked tireless to give back to give back to his community. After an honorable discharge, Jacob started an all-natural food company, CYP Foods, with the intent of having community and wellness at the forefront of his business model. Since day one, Jacob has had his company partnered with Feeding San Diego as well as the National Eating Disorders Association because he fervently believes that nourishing the mind and bodies of those you care about is the highest form of giving back, and to his community both locally and national, Jacob holds the deepest reverence of compassion. He has vowed to keep caring for the community he regards as close to him as his own family and won’t stop until he personally sees the stigma and trend of body image and mindfulness reversed. You can find more about Jacob at his company website, cypfoods.com, or his Instagram @jt_stanford.
