Meet Our Team
A native of Post, Texas, I became interested in health and nutrition at an early age. In December of 2004, I completed my life-long goal of obtaining a Ph.D. in Nutrition.I graduated cum laude from Dallas’ Southern Methodist University in 1995 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. While I was a student at SMU, I worked in the telecommunications industry, and after graduation, was hired by Andersen Consulting as a computer network consultant. Two and a half years later, I made a career change, followed my passion for health and enrolled at Texas Woman’s University, in Denton, Texas, to pursue my doctorate in nutrition.By January of 1998, I had taken my first step in my new career and started classes in a nationally accredited Top 10 nutrition graduate school program at TWU. By February, I obtained my instructor’s certification in personal fitness training, and am currently certified by the American Council on Exercise. I am also a Certified Sports Nutritionist by the International Society of Sports Nutrition, as well as a member of the IDEA Health and Fitness Association and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, where I am an active member of several dietetic practice groups: Nutrition Entrepreneurs, Sports, Cardiovascular & Wellness Nutritionists, Weight Management and the National Organization of Men in Nutrition. I am also an active participant in the Academy eMentoring Program and mentor nutrition professionals new to the profession.
While taking classes at TWU, I worked full time as a personal fitness trainer and nutrition counselor, and launched my current private practice, eatrightfitness®, specializing in weight loss, wellness, and sports performance nutrition. I served as president of the Nutrition and Food Science Graduate Club for two years at TWU and in December 2004, I graduated summa cum laude and obtained my Ph.D. in Nutrition. My doctoral research focused on conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and its effects on visceral body fat in overweight, resistance-trained men – my research and findings were published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (jissn.com/content/3/2/28). I was a four-time recipient of the Doris McCarter Brownell Endowed Scholarship from Texas Woman’s University for excellence in the field of nutrition, and was recognized by D Magazine as one of Dallas’ best personal fitness trainers two years in a row.
I really discovered my passion for teaching others while serving as an Adjunct Faculty for over four years within the Dallas County Community College District. Here I taught undergraduate nutrition courses to pre-med, nursing, and other health-related majors, while mentoring many students looking to make a career in the nutrition and fitness professions. I also helped develop their Personal Trainer Certification program and took an active role in sponsoring students in this program.
I have been in practice for over 18 years and currently reside in Spring, TX, with my wife and twin sons.
A Big Thank You for all your help and support. Because of all your expertise & wise judgement, I’m definitely getting to / in a better place physically. Of course this helps me heal and become stronger emotionally and psychologically as well. I’m feeling sooooo much better!! Someone complimented me yesterday on my progress and also remarked on how there’s “ life” in my eyes again. Wow! That touched me deeply and I just wanted to pass along all my sincere appreciation -Anonymus
I wanted to work specifically with someone with a Ph.D. who understood energy demands and nutritional requirements of a category 1 cyclist, trying 20+ hours a week. Over the next four months, I lost 15 pounds and developed eating habits needed to maintain a healthier weight. I absolutely could not have achieved my goals without his help! -Mike, Texas
At 39, I decided to try for a second child. I contacted Dr. Adams because I knew my diet needed major changes. He started me on a eating program that really made me feel amazing. After three months, I was pregnant. I owe a large part of this success to the changes Dr. Adams made in my diet and exercise programs. -Lisa, New York
Thank you for helping me understand what I need both nutritionally and physically to accomplish my goals. After working with you, I’ve completed two full marathons, three half marathons, and numerous other distance races. I now feel confident in how to properly care for my body while continuing to challenge myself. -Logan, New York
