Hey, I’m Nate.

This is my blog where I write about stuff I’m learning or things I’m thinking about.

I’m an author, marketing and ideas guy for Precision Nutrition, and a recovering fitness junkie. Here’s what that all means.

Author

I’ve written three books.

Built for Show was released by Avery/Penguin publishing in 2008 when I was 23. You can still get it on Amazon and (probably) in the bargain-bin of most bookstores.

I self-published The Hero Handbook in 2011.

And I wrote Bigger, Smaller, Bigger in 2012.

I co-authored Experiments in Intermittent Fasting with Dr. John Berardi and Dr. Krista Scott Dixon in 2012, and helped Tim Ferriss with research for his books, The 4-Hour Body and the The 4-Hour Chef.

I’ve also written for a bunch of magazines, most of them fitness-related and have been quoted in The LA Times and Men’s Health.

Marketing and Ideas Guy for Precision Nutrition

Most of what I do every day is “behind-the-scenes” stuff like content creation, product development, and marketing strategy.

In other words, I help create the products/services you see on Precision Nutrition and help write the words on our website and in our articles and emails.

Recovering Fitness Junkie

I used to work out 5x per week, balance my ratios of protein, carbs, and fats, and considered myself a connoisseur of nutritional supplements.

Now I exercise a couple times per week and care more about sharing good food with the people I love. I also try to get a good night’s sleep, drink water, meditate, and leave my phone at home most days.

(For more on what I mean by being a recovering fitness junkie, read this post.)

This is when we surprised one of our clients at Precision Nutrition with a whole day of fun stuff and $10,000. That’s me on the far right.
