About the Author:

Robert S. Tyzbir Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences at the University of Vermont, who began teaching courses such as Obesity, Weight Control, & Fitness, Sports Nutrition, Advanced Nutrition, and Nutritional Biochemistry in 1973. His enthusiastic, stimulating teaching style-coupled with his belief that research and creative, quality teaching go hand in hand-has earned him the 1988 Joseph E. Carrigan Award for excellence in undergraduate teaching, the 1990 UVM Alumni Association's George V. Kidder Outstanding Faculty Award, the 2004 U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Agriculture Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award, and the 2007 Kroepsch-Maurice Excellence in Teaching Award in the category of Full Professor. Dr. Tyzbir is known internationally for his research on diet-induced, hormone-mediated alterations in intermediary metabolism and, more recently, he has begun to investigate the link between people's attitudes about eating and exercise and their body size, shape, and composition.
