Nutrition is another hotbed of controversy, where people with not enough research, evidence, or experience in the field are recommending diets with little validity and even less effectiveness.  There is far too much misinformation being spread, making it difficult to know what to believe when looking to develop nutritional strategies for your athletes and clients.

Finally, get clarity on what nutritional & metabolic concepts you NEED TO KNOW when designing nutritional programs.  Nutrition for strength or endurance?  Eating for mass gains or looking to improve body composition?  Want to know the inner secrets on performance enhancers? (this section alone is worth the tuition!) . Learn clinical applications of the gut-brain connection and why ignoring your client’s nervous system function could be the missing link in their progress.

Get ready, because Dr. Nelson is not holding anything back!
