Short Bio

Dr. Paul J. Arciero (“Dr. Paul”), FACSM, FTOS, FISSN, is a leading international keynote speaker and author, and is a Fellow of both the American College of Sports Medicine and The Obesity Society and serves as a scientific advisory board member to the nutrition, fitness, health, and wellness industries. Dr. Paul was recently appointed to the International Protein Board, a 15 member board of the leading protein scientists in the world. He is a leading expert in nutrition and fitness lifestyle interventions to optimize health and physical performance.

He has published more than 58 peer-reviewed research studies on performance nutrition and exercise training in the world’s most respected science journals, including: Obesity Journal, Frontiers in Physiology, American Journal of Preventive Medicine, American Journal of Physiology, Metabolism: Clinical & Experimental, Nutrients, Journal of Applied Physiology, European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and International Journal of Sports Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism. His research has been extensively funded by the leading government agencies, philanthropic organizations and nutrition companies. Most impressive, several of Dr. Paul’s publications have attained the coveted “classic” status, being referenced by other scientists at least 100 times in peer-reviewed science/medical journals. One of Dr. Paul’s most important scientific discoveries was the observation that consuming the right type, amount and timing of protein with and without exercise training, reduces total body and abdominal fat to a greater extent than three “traditional” higher carbohydrate meals per day.

This work was published in the Obesity Journal in 2013 and Journal of Applied Physiology in 2014 and led to the terms “Protein Pacing®” and the “PRISE® Protocol”, as well as numerous additional peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Paul’s work is extensively cited in medical publications such as, the American Heart Association (American Heart Association & Dr. Paul; You’re_the_cure_Dr. Paul ), Duke Medicine Health News, Science Daily, and Villanova COPE as well as mainstream popular media, including: The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, Prevention, Good Housekeeping, WebMD, O Magazine, TIME, Huffington Post, Daily Mail, SELF, Glamour, Shape, Health, Women’s Health, Women’s World, Muscle and Fitness, Men’s Fitness, and Men’s Health.
