WHAT IS THE FLEXDIET CERTIFICATION?
Nutrition for performance and body composition changes distilled down into bite-sized actionable steps. This is the FlexDiet.
Flexible Dieting + Metabolic Flexibility = Flex Diet.
Designed by Dr. Mike, the FlexDiet is everything Dr. Mike has learned about the nutrition delivered in a densely packed 8-week online course. How does it work, glad you asked?
Each week there will be a set of extensive curriculum sent to you, including:
SOME OF WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
WHAT THIS CERFICATION HAS TO OFFER

AN ONLINE COURSE
This course is 100% online meaning you can go through it at your own pace. Dr. Mike will host office hours during the course to answer any questions, or expand on any lesson.
All of the curricilum is taught though onine videos that can be easily watched on-the go. That said, there's a lot of info packed into each lecture, so you're going to want to take notes.
8 WEEK PROGRAM
Each week will contain two lessons: a 'Theory' and an 'Application' module. Modules are taught in order of improtnce and ease of implementation, giving you the most valuable and actionable info on day one..
It is taught in a way that you will be able to immediately have all of the necessary tools to start working with clients of your own upon completion.
“I was able to get a sneak preview of the material earlier this year when Dr Mike came out to my gym. The information and action steps Dr Mike provided on the Flex Diet has been amazing. I learned so much and I'm excited to start teaching the FlexDiet to all our clients.”
Sean Emery - Old City CrossFit
A PROGRAM FOR ALL BACKGROUNDS
You don't need a HUGE background in Exercise Science to succeed in this course. That said, having some basic exposure to nutrition and the health and wellness field would be a solid plus. While the instruction certainly isn't PhD Level, if you're brand new to the nutrition world, this course might be a little tough to keep up with.

This Dr. Mike has spent his entire professional career studying Metabolic Flexibility and teaching people how to implement it effectively. With this program you'll be getting 100% of Dr. Mike's understanding of nutrition and 100% of Dr. Mike's best practices when it comes to application. The FlexDiet Certification Course is like having Dr. Mike teach you the most relevent aspects of his exercise science PhD program that you can start putting into practice right away.
WHAT ELSE YOU'LL LEARN
A WORD FROM YOUR TEACHER
“I love the nutrition. I love teaching my FlexDiet method to passionate people who are looking to implement right away. I want to share my love and passion with the world. That’s what this course is about. This course will teach nutrition best practices to any motivated person.”
Q: Mike, how much time I need to invest so I can plan for that?
A: Each module has 3 videos and there are 8 modules in total plus some expert interviews too. My goal is to prune out material so that it is reasonable and if people want to go deep down the rabbit holes they can listen to the expert interviews. If you block out 1 hour Mon, Wed, Friday each week, you can complete the entire course in 8 weeks.
Here is the breakdown per module:
I. Big Picture Video: Each module I add more to the 30,000 foot view of how metabolic flexiblity and flexible dieting work so you can understand the theory. Run time: 1 hour
II. Intervention Theory: Each module has an intervention that you as the coach help the client with over the course of 8 interventions (one per module). In this video I break down the exact things that you need to know for the background / theory. Run time: 1 hour
III. 5 Action Steps: This module breaks down the intervention into 5 action steps that you can use with your clients. I walk you through how to decide which action step is best in the process. This takes the theory and makes it immediately actionable. Run time: 20 min
IV: Expert Interviews: I interview the actual experts in the field working with clients directly and in the lab doing the cutting edge research. These includes subject matter experts like Dan Pardi, Dr Stu Phillips, Dr Eric Helms, Dr. Peter Fitschen, Dr Jose Antonio, Jeff Chilton, Dr Kenneth Jay, Hunter Waldman, and more. Each were there is about 1 interview of 1 hour in length.
Total length of all material including the optional expert interviews clocks in at 30 hours of material.
Q: Is this program limited access or forever?
A: You will have access to the course for 1 year. You will also get all the future updates as the research changes and I find better way to do things with that 1 year.
Q: Will there be meetings I need to block off specific times and days?
A: No meeting right now as it will be all offline. That will allow you to work through the material when it fits their schedule.
Q: What is the start date?
A: The moment you sign up! I have everything laid out in a new online learning environment.
Q: Will the price be different next time you offer it?
A: Yes, it will be higher for sure. I wanted to make it a complete “no brainer” for you to hop on now.
Q: Are their quizes to be completed? If so, are they required?
A: To be certified you must take and pass each quiz at the end of each module. Once you pass all 8 modules you are certified. If you want to take the course only for the information and not be certified, you do not need to pass the quizes.

I’ve known Dr. Mike T Nelson for 10+ years. He was an uber nerd then and still is today. I feel fortunate to call him a friend. We’ve had too many excellent nutrition, supplement and exercise conversations to count - most of which have taken place over mammoth protein meals (and ‘no’ neither of us have suffered any exploding kidneys from insane protein intakes despite the fact this myth still exists!).
Anyhow, Mike T Nelson is rolling out a metabolic flexibility nutrition course. Like all his work, it’s solid stuff . . . And you’ll learn in this course that when it comes to performance, it’s not about burning fats really well, it’s not about burning carbs really well; RATHER it’s about teaching the body to burn fats AND carbs really well. If you’re not familiar with how to accomplish this, check out this course!
NOTE - I have no financial incentive in encouraging people to register for this course. Rather, my incentive is to share excellent learning opportunities (such as this) in order to help others improve their health and performance!

Any nutrition geeks out there want to know how to get the most out of your metabolism? This course is a science-based approach to how our metabolism works and ultimately every 'diet' out there is made obsolete by following what Mike T Nelson has put together.
Not all or nothing, not low fat high carb or high carb low fat.... just healthy metabolism = healthy. The course was full of great info and clear actions.

Dr. Mike T Nelson is THE BEST resource for everything you'd want to know about metabolic flexibility. He just opened registration to become certified in the FletDiet which is open for the next week or so.
This course is perfect for individuals, influencers, coaches and gym owners who need practical education on nutrition but can't commit to becoming nutritionists. I went through the program just because and recommend it to anyone in the fitness industry who feels the need to improve their knowledge in this area.
-- Jessica Webster
Very good stuff, I’ll be recommending this in our courses. Clear, concise, practical stuff and not too sciency. I’ve already picked up a lot of good cues I’ll be using with my clients.
