This is the personal blog of Peter Attia. In other words, the views, opinions, and musings of this blog do not necessarily represent those of my employer, Nutrition Science Initiative (NuSI).

I am a paid employee of NuSI, a California-based 501(c)(3) which funds independent researchers who investigate the relationships between diet and the metabolic diseases associated with obesity, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.  Experiments and scientists are funded by NuSI. I am not personally involved in the actual investigations.  For more information about NuSI and NuSI-funded research, please visit NuSI’s website, www.nusi.org.

I receive speaking honorariums from organizations including hospitals and health-related businesses when I am asked to speak on metabolic related topics, athletic performance, and my personal experience.

I received, in 2012, a one-time consulting fee from the diagnostic company LipoScience to be part of an advisory team that was evaluating future risk markers for cardiovascular disease.

Independent of my work at NuSI, I work as a health coach, one-on-one, with a few private clients for compensation, and I work as a physician with a small number of patients.

My brother, a full-time attorney in Canada, does part-time business development for a sports nutrition/supplement company, BioSteel.  I receive no compensation from this company, nor do I provide any consulting services to them. I am not professionally involved with them, though I do use their products.

My relationship with Generation UCAN, which sells sports nutrition/supplements, is similar. I use the company’s products and occasionally discuss or mention them in my posts, but I am not professionally involved with them, and receive no compensation from them.

I may, from time to time, make comments on this blog regarding other products I use to supplement my diet. I receive no compensation from such companies, nor do I provide any consulting services to them.

Furthermore, I receive no “kick-backs” from any products sold, of any variety, including any books I recommend to readers.
