IDEA Fitness Journal editor in chief Sandy Todd Webster will moderate this stimulating discussion to explore the opinions of elite nutrition coach and exercise physiologist John Berardi, PhD; certified nutrition coach and "whole food" cooking coach Teri Gentes; veteran personal trainer and women’s weight loss specialist Nicki Anderson; and Steve Hertzler, PhD, RD, senior research scientist for research and education in global performance nutrition for Abbott Nutrition.
