Ep 63: Ending Diet Dogmas and Cultivating Nutrition for All featuring Wade Lightheart


In this episode Alec is joined by Wade Lightheart, co-founder and president/director of BioOptimizers, to discuss Wade’s latest book that he co-authored with his business partner and friend Matt Galant, the Ultimate Nutrition Bible. This book is the book to end all diet dogma and diet wars. As you’ll hear in this episode, Wade and Matt are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to diet and nutrition, but they both recognize both the dogma that is present, and the nuance that is required to ensure wellness in the age of diet gurus and diet wars— and that is what helped them birth a book like no other on diet and nutrition.

Wade Lightheart is a Certified Sports Nutritionist Advisor and president/director of education and co-founder of BIOptimizers. As a plant-based and drug-free athlete for more than two decades, Wade is a three-time National Natural Bodybuilding Champion who competed in both the IFBB Mr. Universe and the INBA Natural Olympia by the age of 31. At the age of 50, Wade came out of retirement to win the Open Men’s and Grand Master’s Categories at the INBA Ironman International, then competed at The PNBA Natural Olympia. Six months later, Wade successfully ran his first marathon in four hours.
