Modere recently welcomed exercise and nutrition sciences expert Dr. Todd Miller to its Scientific Advisory Board.
Dr. Miller is an associate professor in the Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at George Washington University (GWU) in Washington D.C., where his research has led him to develop conditioning and nutritional interventions that prevent and manage obesity by focusing on healthy body composition rather than weight alone.
“Muscle is the engine that burns calories, so for best results when working towards a lean, sculpted body, we want to focus specifically on preserving, or even increasing muscle mass while simultaneously losing fat,” explained Dr. Miller. “The end result is not just a lighter body weight but improved body composition, a healthy proportion of muscle, fast metabolism and a greater chance to achieve long-term, successful weight management. Modere approaches weight management with the same mentality, so I am excited to be aligned with them as part of their Scientific Advisory Board.”
Dr. Miller developed GWU’s master’s degree program in strength and conditioning and is director of the Weight Management and Human Performance Lab at GWU’s Virginia Science and Technology Center in Ashburn, Virginia. He holds degrees in Exercise Physiology from Penn State and Texas A&M and has won George Washington University’s Excellence in Teaching Award five times.
“Targeting optimal body composition for successful weight management is a key element of the healthy, clean lifestyle that Modere advocates,” said Asma Ishaq, CEO of Modere. “Dr. Miller’s extensive knowledge in that area will be valuable as we continue to develop cutting-edge products to support our consumers in their quest for better health.”
