David Plourdé, Ph.D.

In his early years, Dr. David Plourdé-Nutrition Scientist and Exercise Physiologist was a three-time state champion competitive power lifter (coached by World Champion & Author, Bill Seno) and set numerous state records. He had a passion for nutrition science, exercise physiology and human performance.

But he also had a strong desire to help people. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work with a minor in Coaching from the University of Wisconsin -Whitewater because his initial intention was to become a professional counselor.

In his junior year of college he had a vision that his two passions (science and helping others) would collapse into one; a career in interdisciplinary science-based weight-loss.

He went on to get a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) with a concentration in Sciences and a specialization in Human Nutrition and Exercise Physiology from Union Institute & University.

His research background examined the effect of hidden carbohydrates on human adipose tissue metabolism and the percentage of body fat weight-loss in obese human subjects.

Dr. Plourdé has directed the Institute for more than 25 years and has become a world leader in interdisciplinary science-based weight-loss. He's personally helped thousands of people successfully lose body fat through his science-based weight-loss method.
