What is "Nutriquity"?
Nutrition (the act or process of nourishing) + Ubiquity (the state of being everywhere) = Nutriquity
Welcome to Nutriquity! My name is Michael Glab and I am a RD located in Oak Park,
Illinois. My nutrition philosophy is that healthy eating should be:
Nutrition profoundly affected my life before I ever thought of becoming a RD. Throughout my youth and into to my early 20's I struggled with being overweight, dieting and the weight gain/weight loss roller coaster. I was always involved in sports or physically active, but I was unable to shed the extra body fat. I began experimenting with my diet and learned that my body was highly sensitive to the food I put into it. Added sugars, processed and fried foods are not my friends. A well rounded diet of real, nourishing foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish, eggs and dairy became (and are) daily fixtures in my diet. Consistent meal timing and food preparation keep me on track and the weight is off for good. The best part is that my current diet fuels my active lifestyle that includes running, swimming, biking and weightlifting.
These personal experiences instilled in me a passion for nutrition that led me to make it a career. Towards the end of 2012, I decided to transition from a corporate career to a career in nutrition. After taking the required science courses at Triton College I was accepted to the Master's Program in Human Nutrition at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). During my 1200+ hours internship my dual focus was sports and clinical nutrition. I worked with collegiate athletes providing one-on-one nutrition counseling and group nutrition education for 2.5 years at UIC. I have Master's level training in sports nutrition and nutrition counseling. I interned at two acute care hospitals in Chicago, which provided me the foundation in clinical nutrition that led to 2.5 years of clinical nutrition experience at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park.
Now I am in private practice full-time living out my dream to help others improve their health naturally. I stay up to date on current nutrition trends to help you cut through all the BS on the web and in the news. My goal is to help clients improve their health naturally and achieve lifelong results through the power of nutrition.
