My Mission

“All grown-ups were once children, but only a few of them remember it.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

As a scientist and educator, my mission is to awaken the childlike wonder in people, empowering them to optimize their health by challenging conventional wisdom and their own beliefs.

I firmly believe that skepticism paired with experimentation transforms scientific findings into practical wisdom and actionable steps. Building trust is crucial in opening minds to new ideas. Guided by this principle, I derive immense joy from helping people embrace fresh perspectives and recognize their blind spots by providing access to reliable information and simplifying complexities.

My Vision: From Confusion to Personalization

I am resolute in revolutionizing nutrition from a state of confusion to a realm of personalized control. In a world rife with conflicting health news, deciphering what genuinely constitutes “healthy” can be overwhelming. This uncertainty erodes trust in nutrition science and stifles motivation to improve well-being. Rather than promoting a one-size-fits-all approach, I champion a crucial question: which diet optimally serves each individual? To answer this question we need to move from nutritional tribalism to nutritional biochemistry. Food profoundly impacts people based on their unique characteristics, such as genes, epigenetics, age, sex, and lifestyle factors like activity level, stress, and sleep.

Embracing Diversity in Nutrition

I advocate for a harmonious and inclusive approach to nutrition, where love for food triumphs over conflict. Nutrition is a diverse toolkit, offering a myriad of options for each individual. By fostering inclusive conversations and embracing everyone’s unique needs, we can advance the science and practice of nutrition for the betterment of all.
