Krista Scott-Dixon finished her PhD in 2002. She taught at York University and did a brief stint in public health, publishing three books along the way. She escaped academia altogether in 2008 (and never looked back).
She helped start the Healthy Food Bank charity and Spezzatino magazine, an online food magazine that really helps fight hunger. Along with her HFB and Spezzatino work, she currently serves as the Lean Eating Program Director at Precision Nutrition. She's coached three cohorts of the Lean Eating program, helping hundreds of women get and stay fit and healthy.
She's run Stumptuous, a noncommercial, no-BS website for women's weight training, since 1996.
