About Us

Welcome! Thanks for visiting Weightology. I'm James Krieger and I'm here to help educate you on the scientifically best ways to help you build muscle and lose fat.

What makes me qualified to do this? I've got a Master's degree in Nutrition from the University of Florida and a second Master's degree in Exercise Science from Washington State University.  I'm also a published scientist, author, and speaker in the field of exercise and nutrition.  I've published research in prestigious scientific journals, including the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and the Journal of Applied Physiology.  I've collaborated with notable scientists in the field like Dr. Brad Schoenfeld. I'm the former science editor for Pure Power Magazine, and the former editor for Journal of Pure Power, both publications that delivered scientific, but lay-friendly, information on training and nutrition to athletes and coaches.  I've given over 100 lectures on fitness-related topics to physicians, dietitians, and other professionals, and have been a speaker at major events such as the AFPT Conference and NSCA Personal Training Conference. I've been involved in the health, nutrition, and fitness field for over 20 years, and have written over 500 articles.

Oh, and I'm not some guy in a lab coat with no real world experience. I'm the former research director for a corporate weight management program that treated over 400 people per year, with an average weight loss of 40 pounds in 3 months. My former clients include the founder of Sylvan Learning Centers and The Little Gym, the vice president of Costco, and a former vice president of MSN. I've coached lots of people to transform their bodies, including helping a natural bodybuilder get his IFBB Pro card. I've also competed in physique shows myself.
