Session #1 – The Science Link Nutritional System

The Science Link Nutritional System uses 7 key steps in the determination of an optimal nutrition program. These steps include:

I. Evaluating Lifestyle, Exercise & Nutrition Habits
II. Determining How Much To Eat
III. Determining What To Eat
IV. Determining When To Eat
V. Generating The Full Nutritional Plan
VI. Monitoring Progress Via Outcome-Based Bi-Weekly Schedule
VII. Determining Supplementation Needs

In this session, for the first time ever, John Berardi exposes the Science Link Nutritional System in its entirety, teaching you everything from the basic strategies he uses with all clients to the special problem-solving strategies necessary when individual differences challenge progress. Using the step-by-step system developed by JB and his team, you?ll learn what years of experience have taught - how to get astounding results while others struggle.

Session #2 – Body Composition, Health and Hormones

The basic Science Link System typically produces rapid and efficient body composition success in about 80-85% of all Science Link clients. However 15-20% have special needs that require more detailed programming, blood analysis, and special physiological intervention. Sure, most physiological processes are similar between individuals. But there are SNPs and other biological phenomenon that require special attention. Ever heard of SNPs? If not, come learn how single nucleotide polymorphisms can impact nutritional needs. Also in this session, find out how the Science Link Team helps balance the body’s endocrine axis by helping regulate cortisol, insulin, thyroid, testosterone, and estrogen function.

Session #3 – Digestive Health

Knowing what to put into your mouth is important. However, ensuring what you’re eating contributes to your goals is imperative. You can’t benefit from what you don’t absorb. In this session, learn the consequences of poor digestion, absorption, and food intolerance from malabsorption to compromised immunity. While many weight lifters have come to accept “gastrointestinal stress” as a part of their high protein diets, we consider this discomfort intolerable (forgive the pun). Come learn how to optimize your gastrointestinal health.

Session #4 – Research Update ? Post-Exercise Nutrition

Fresh out of school, JB has got some new post-workout data to share with you. Using original data collected at the UWO Exercise Nutrition Lab, JB will teach you how targeted post-exercise nutrition improves subsequent athletic performance, glycogen status, the anabolic hormone ratio, and several other important variables. Furthermore, learn how substrate metabolism is altered in a unique way when combining carbohydrates and protein in your post-workout drinks.
