Vitruvian Man Logo

The Vitruvian Man is a sketch done by Leonardo Da Vinci which represents the “perfect proportions.” The circle and square surround the man providing touch-points for the arms and legs as they move.

Why we chose it?

It’s an art and a science: Leonardo’s new twist – to place the circle and square on top of each other – combine science and art. This is similar to our approach.

Many body types can fit. We like that a body with little fat and a body with lots of fat can both fit into the circle and square.

Let’s try to stop focusing on being right, stop talking so much, and start listening more. Let’s focus on helping people be real with their food choices instead of making them feel “bad” for not eating “right.” Let’s use our expertise to give people evidence-based information instead of our opinions.
