You Are What You Eat- Part Two w/ Nutritionist Andrew Wade

by Faster Than Normal

The first interview with our guest today was so informative, we had to bring him back! If you haven’t listened to “Nutrition Wellness and ADHD w/ Fitness + Dietary Expert Andrew Wade” maybe try to start there. Either way this is a great one! We left off with “don’t eat cookies alone”… Today is a continuance of that interview. He expounds on that sentiment and we talk more about how important nutrition is in our hectic, everyday ADHD lives. Enjoy!

A little bit more about our guest today- He is a Registered Dietitian, and owner of Case Specific Nutrition (CSN), a Dietitian Group Practice with 4 locations in Pittsburgh, PA and the surrounding area. CSN has various contracts servicing fitness centers, corporate wellness initiatives, health and rehabilitation sites, and family medical offices. Andrew completed his Master’s in Wellness & Human Performance at the University of Pittsburgh in the Fall of 2015 and is currently credentialed as a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). In addition to his practice, Andrew is the creator of the accountability mobile app “Rate My Day”, the co-founder of the online habits course The Optilife Academy, the author of the book “Marathon Ready Runner’s Nutrition Guide: a quick reference tool”, and the owner of the Case Specific Wellness Fitness Center.
