In this episode we are fortunate to have on the show Andrew Wade MS, RDN, LDN of Case Specific Nutrition located right here in Pittsburgh. Andrew is Pittsburgh’s formal diet and nutrition authority contributing his work via his multiple blog sites and also the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Get to know Andrew more by clicking here.

 

Today, The Knowbodies talk about how Andrew’s consulting and services company “Case Specific Nutrition” came to be and discuss some of the unique aspects of diet counseling that Andrew has developed from personal experience and over the years with his clients. Andrew breaks down the nuances of diet management when it comes to the mindset of the dieting individual, what makes nutritional planning effective, and some of the tools that he has developed to help clients stay on course despite hectic schedules and lifestyles.

 

We tackle some of the toughest questions when it comes to diet management like: How accurate are the daily calorie allowances that are advertised on common foods? How does the athlete’s diet differ from the everyday Joe? And what strategies can a work-a-holic use to help them be more regimented in their meal planning once the time crunch of the workweek starts?

 

Give us a listen and you may be surprised by some of the things you learn. The world of nutrition is constantly evolving and ever-present in the media so stay informed with our personal interview with the one dietitian that you need to get to know.

In this episode Joe and the Knowbodies discuss:

  • The development and back story of Fitbux and why Joe ventured into helping PT students
  • What makes the PT so unique when dealing with student loans?
  • What is “human capital” and why is it so important when determining the best repayment strategies
  • What technology is being used to develop the best service for students planning for their future
  • What are the important numbers and loan information you will need to get your strategy progress in motion
  • A special case study with real numbers in a true scenario for a recent PT grad
  • The step by step process of reaching a decision based on what is important to your specific needs
  • How to target which loans to repay first
  • Establishing federal versus private repayment plans
  • Income driven repayment versus extended loans
  • When to switch from one repayment option to another or how to refinance your current strategy, especially during life events such as weddings, children, moving etc.
  • What impact will student loan repayment have on starting a business
  • Is there an ideal method to plan for retirement or savings when facing significant student loan debt
  • How to be less stressed and in more control of your debt by implementing a Fitbux strategy

 

The content Joe shares is truly information that the knowbodies support and hope to share with all that could benefit from it. Student debt is not a crippling monster, it is something that takes strategy and planning and with the right advice and guidance it can be managed.
