My name is Nick Padula and I have been a practicing Dietitian for eight years in the state of California. I studied at Long Beach State University where I received my bachelor’s degree in 2012, and also received my Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics with a concentration in Sports Nutrition from Texas Tech University in 2022. I started my career in the hospital and skilled nursing setting as a clinical dietitian and director of foodservice. In a career transition into sports nutrition, I have worked with the University of Southern California football and basketball teams while starting a sports nutrition private practice.
At LBC Nutrition, I have had the pleasure to work with a wide array of clients: triathletes, professional boxers, endurance runners, professional soccer players, high school athletes, collegiate athletes, and recreational athletes. We also partner with a physical therapy group and help athletes during rehabilitation during injury.
I live in Long Beach, CA with my wife Lily (who is also a Dietitian), son Santino, and dog Miley. I am a sports fanatic, golfer, and runner.
