Mauro G. Di Pasquale, B.Sc., M.D., M.R.O., M.F.S.

Over the past four decades Iíve become known throughout the world for my knowledge and abilities in all aspects of Sports Medicine, and considered widely as a world expert in the use of ergogenic aids, and the enhancement of body composition, strength and athletic performance through the use of specific diets and nutritional supplements.

I hold an honors degree in biological science, majoring in molecular biochemistry and genetics (1968), and a medical degree (1971) - both from the University of Toronto. I am certified as a Medical Review Officer (MRO) by the Medical Review Officer Certification Council (MROCC), and as a Master of Fitness Sciences (MFS) by the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA). I am also a member of the American College of Sports Medicine.

I was an assistant professor at the University of Toronto for ten years (1988 to 1998) lecturing and researching on athletic performance, nutrition, nutritional supplements, and drug use in sports.

I was a world-class athlete for over twenty years, winning the world championships in Powerlifting in 1976, and the World Games in the sport of Powerlifting in 1981. I was Canadian champion eight times, Pan American champion twice, and North American champion twice. I was the first Canadian Powerlifter to become a World Champion and first Canadian Powerlifter to total 10 times bodyweight in any weight class and I'm the only Canadian to ever total ten times bodyweight in two weight classes.

Over the last four decades I have had extensive exposure to athletic injuries and disabilities, and ergogenic and nutritional supplement use by athletes. As well, I operated a Sports Medicine, Nutrition and Bariatric clinic for over three decades.

I have been chairman/member of several national and international powerlifting, bodybuilding and Olympic weight lifting sports federation medical committees. Over this period of time I have acted as a consultant, medical advisor, drug testing officer and technical expert on the pharmacology and pathophysiology of sports, nutritional supplement use and drug testing.

I was the Medical Director to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) (now called World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)) and World Bodybuilding Federation (WBF) and the acting MRO for the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR).

At present I am the President of the fledgling United World Powerlifting Federation (www.UWPF.com) and the Pan American (North, Central and South America, Bermuda, the Bahamas and the Caribbean Islands) Powerlifting Federation (www.PanAmPL.com).

I have written several books, many of which have been translated into various languages, dealing with diet, nutritional supplements and the use of ergogenic aids by athletes. Earlier books included Drug Use and Detection in Amateur Sports, Beyond Anabolic Steroids, and Anabolic Steroid Side Effects, Fact, Fiction and Treatment.

In the past three decades plus, I have been on several Editorial Boards for various fitness and strength magazines. I was the Editor-in-Chief of a peer reviewed, quarterly international newsletter titled Drugs in Sports, published by Decker. This newsletter was published in English, Spanish and Italian. I was also Editor-in-Chief of a bimonthly newsletter titled the Anabolic Research Review. Both newsletters contained information on drug testing and the use of drugs and nutritional supplements by athletes.

In 1995 I wrote two books. One of these books, the Bodybuilding Supplement Review is a review of nutritional supplements and the other, the Anabolic Diet, described an earlier version of my new Metabolic Diet. This diet was aimed at bodybuilders and strength athletes. Both books were written to provide information to athletes on how to increase muscle mass and strength and decrease body fat, and to offer an alternative to drug use.

In 1997 I wrote Amino Acids and Proteins for the Athlete - The Anabolic Edge published by CRC Press, it was released in October 1997. I have also written and am in the process of writing chapters for several books on nutrition, sports medicine, substance abuse, fitness and weight training. At present I'm working on several other books including a comprehensive nutritional supplement manual.

In the past thirty-five years I have written a few thousand articles on training, diet, nutritional supplements, and drug use in sports for many magazines and association journals. I've written for and had regular monthly columns in all the popular bodybuilding and fitness journals including Muscle and Fitness, Flex, Men's Fitness, Shape, Muscle Media, Muscle Mag International, IronMan, Powerlifting USA and many smaller publications.

From 1996 to 1999 I was involved in writing, research and product development for Experimental and Applied Sciences (EAS) and Muscle Media, and was a member of the EAS Scientific Advisory Panel.

I've contributed chapters on ergogenic aids, diet and nutritional supplements to dozens of fitness, weight and sports medicine books as well as books on anabolic steroids and substance abuse. For example I contributed the chapter on Anabolic Steroids in The Handbook of Substance Abuse, 1998 and edited by Tarter et al. The latest chapters on nutrition appears in Energy-Yielding Macronutrients and Energy Metabolism in Sports Nutrition and in Nutritional Applications in Exercise and Sport, both edited by Judy A. Driskell and Ira Wolinsky and published in 2000 and 2001 respectively by CRC Press.

My latest collaborative effort, written along with Tudor Bompa and Lorenzo Cornacchia, is the second edition of Serious Strength Training released by Human Kinetics in late 2002.

In the past three decades I have been on several Editorial Boards for various fitness and strength magazines and was the Editor-in-Chief of a two quarterly international newsletter on sports nutrition and ergogenic aids.

I hold seminars and lecture all over the world on diet, nutritional supplements and training. In the past I have lectured and held seminars in dozens of cities in North America, and all over the world. I also formulate engineered, cutting edge, scientifically validated nutritional supplements for various companies that are sold under their specific labels.

Most recently I formulated a new group of nutritional supplements meant to combat nighttime post absorptive catabolism and enhance the anabolic and recuperative effects of sleep. Iím now working on developing specific nutriceuticals along with some prominent researchers from the US and several other countries. Those in the US include doctors at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.

I act as an international consultant and expert witness for amateur and professional athletes and sports bodies, private corporations and companies, and government agencies on all aspects of training, nutrition and supplementation and on legal matters relating to nutritional supplements, and the use and abuse, and drug testing of anabolic steroids, growth hormone and other ergogenic drugs.

I formulated a complete nutritional supplement line, which includes over 25 cutting edge products designed to work with the Metabolic Diet and to maximize body composition, athletic performance and the beneficial effects of exercise. These formulations were done using the latest scientific and medical information, along with the knowledge and expertise Iíve accumulated in the last four decades. Iíve tried to use the best ingredients available regardless of costs to form products that are superior to any on the market today. These supplements, plus my book, The Metabolic Diet along with related books and ebooks (www.MetabolicDiet.com), form the nutritional backbone of some of my new international ventures.

My MD+ line of nutritional supplements are available in many parts of the world, including North America, Japan and Italy, and are featured on my two major web sites, www.MetabolicDiet.com and www.CoachSOS.com. The goal of these sites is to provide specific and detailed training, diet and nutritional supplement schedules for all athletes and for anyone who just want to lose some weight and/or body fat.

The new ďSolutionĒ series of books and ebooks center around the use of the Metabolic Diet and nutritional supplements for various sports and for fat loss in both men and women. For example the Anabolic Solution for Bodybuilders, written for both recreational and competitive bodybuilders, is a cutting edge, training specific, diet and nutritional supplement guide geared to maximize muscle mass and minimize body fat.

All of the books in the Anabolic Solution series, by optimizing training, diet and nutritional supplement use, are meant to offer the athlete a drug free viable alternative to the dangerous use of ergogenic drugs such as anabolic steroids, growth hormone, IGF-I, clenbuterol, thyroid, insulin, and countless others.

My new Radical Diet Plan is meant for anyone wanting to initially quickly lose weight and body fat, and then continue losing using the Metabolic Diet and my line of nutritional supplements for effective long-term weight loss and weight management.
