Dr. Ro

Rovenia M. Brock, PhD, or "Dr. Ro," is an award-winning health journalist and television personality known for her easy-to-apply diet, fitness and health tips for women and families. A leading nutrition coach for over two decades, she was recently named by More magazine as one of America's top five nutritionists. She holds a PhD in nutritional sciences from Howard University and is author of Dr. Ro's Ten Secrets to Livin' Healthy, praised as a top-ten diet book by USA Today. Having survived the loss of her mother at age 9 to stomach cancer, she has researched and written extensively about how to break bad health habits, from eating high-calorie comfort foods and resisting exercise to giving up on health goals and taking on the negativity of saboteurs. Dr. Ro says it takes only three weeks to form a new habit, an important note to women striving to replace bad habits with new healthy behaviors.
