Who is Negar?

After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in nutrition science at Tehran, Science & Research University, I became interested in doing research in nutrition, and therefore fulfilled this goal of mine by pursuing a master’s degree in nutrition science at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences and currently obtaining a PhD (Doctorate) degree in Human Nutrition at McGill University.

In my research areas of interest, I have focused on the effects of different nutrition supplements from having antioxidant properties and alleviating diabetes to managing weight loss, bone health and sport nutrition. This made me acquaint with the nutritional requirements during different stages of infancy, childhood and adulthood both from a clinical and laboratory perspective.

Considering the role of physical exercise in weight lose, cardiovascular health, muscle and joint flexibility, overcoming stress and sleeping better, my attention was drawn to the effect of nutrition in sport therefore in one of my projects, I focused on nutritional supplements recommended for sport nutrition. This made me familiar with nutritional requirements during both aerobic (walking, jogging, bicycling, swimming, racquetball, and aerobic dance) and anaerobic (weight lifting) sports and the metabolism of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate and fat) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) from training to competition.
