The importance of nutrition was evident early in Chris’s life when he was diagnosed with hypoglycemia at the age of ten. He learned the advantage of eating multiple small meals which contained a balance of complex carbohydrates and protein and resulted in stabilizing his blood sugar. Working in an acute care setting at a Connecticut hospital has served to underscore the critical importance of nutrition in achieving and maintaining good health.
Combining good nutrition with physical training contributed to his success by earning his professional status as a Motocross competitor in 2004 and more recently achieving his IFBB pro card as a body builder at the NPC Nationals in November 2013. Chris loves to educate others on the power of nutrition and derives great satisfaction helping them to achieve their goals. He is dedicated to sharing his love of nutrition with others in the hope that this knowledge will serve others as well as it has served him.
