Nutrition and Fitness Science

The scientific bases of nutrition and fitness sciences are human biochemistry and physiology. A fundamental understanding of metabolism and how nutrients are used to create energy and maintain homeostasis is imperative for looking at fitness through a scientific lens. Join us as we dive into evidence-based fitness, explore the scientific merit of fad diets, debate low-bar vs high-bar squatting, debunk the most popular “broscience” and much, much more.

A “slow” metabolism can make fat loss confusing and more difficult than it should be. Luckily, the pace of your metabolism isn’t permanent.

The Ketogenic diet has gained a lot of traction lately as a miracle weight loss diet, but did you know that this diet is a clinical regimen with strong scientific ties?

There are thousands of fat loss products out there, but do any actually work? Let’s find out.

Metabolic adaptation is one of the most puzzling phenomenons in health, but only if you don’t know what it is.

Nutrition labels are important, and even more so if you have this rare metabolic disorder. Let’s take a closer look.

From pre-workouts to protein powders, most people believe that an overabundance of supplementation and a healthy lifestyle go in hand. Let’s explore the time and place for supplements and their overall importance to health and fitness.

Historically, people with Life Science PhDs have been limited to careers in academia or industry. An interview with Sal, Adam, and Justin from the Mind Pump podcast shed some light on careers for Life Science PhDs in the ever-evolving health and fitness industry.
