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?
