I see myself first and foremost as a geek. Within three years, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s in Mathematics as well as in Physics. I continued on to earn a Masters in Physics, then became a Ph.D. candidate in Physics at the University of Florida in only a year. I was formerly a software engineer, where I occasionally wasted time working on abstruse mathematical problems. DangerouslyHardcore.com is where I collects my thoughts on training techniques and nutritional advice; rants about stupidity in the world of health, diet and fitness.
The Carb Nite® Solution, was my first endeavor into health writing where I researched several aspects of human performance and physique transformation (including fat loss and muscle building) by heading straight to the source: the peer reviewed research journals. The Carb Nite® Solution alone is the result of eight years of tireless research, the reading of over 20,000 research articles, culminating in the synthesis of information spanning the last 100 years. I don't rely on magazine articles, popular opinion, or gym-rat wisdom. If there’s no evidence in the research literature, then the assumption is that the information is crap.
As a physicist, however, I must also understand that we never move forward without exploring the real world. Empirical evidence is invaluable when made by trained observers, those who’ve been in the field and exploring the outcome of differing experimental protocols. This applies to the lab as well as the gym. Ian King, Charles Poliquin, Christian Thibaudeau and many others represent a gold standard in this field, often discovering and applying methods that science eventually validates. Taking guidance from respected authorities and my own fifteen years of experience working with myself and others, I combine the best of laboratory research with tried-and-true real-world knowledge to guide myself and those who seek my advice.
