Top 50 Most Inspirational Healthy Tweeps 2012

Once again Mamavation has had the honor to put out the Top 50 Most Influential Healthy Tweeps. This list is different than before. This year all decisions were handled in a panel with Mamavation Leadership members and Diets In Review. Thank you to everyone who nominated their favorites. We split the list in 5 parts: Fitness, Food, Weight Loss, Inspiration & Activism. And then at the bottom we have some honorable mentions to check out as well. The order is random, so assume each person on the list is equally influential.

Congratulations to the 2012 Top 50 Most Influential Healthy Tweeps!
