Alex’s journey into nutrition began in his first career as a preschool teacher. His students’ extreme food allergies and specific diets showed him the dramatic role that food plays in behavior, energy, and mood. Seeing how powerful food was day-in day-out lead him to question his own eating habits.
By changing his nutrition, Alex lost thirty pounds and his lifelong digestive issue were resolved. His passion has led him to a career helping others achieve their nutritional goals. He returned to school and became a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and founded Evolve Nutritional Therapy in 2012.
Alex writes for Barbell Shrugged, Onnit Academy, and runs the blog Eat to Evolve. Alex enjoys training Muay Thai, stand-up comedy, reading, lifting weights, and a strong cup of coffee.
