The difference between a first and a second place is in the details.
At CAPONUTRITION, we work with the most competitive athletes in the planet to improve their performance through evidence-based sports nutrition.

Food is more than just calories and macronutrients. It is one of the highest socio-cultural moments in our lives. Because of the hectic work schedule and other obligations, we forget about it, and we end up eating because we must, not because we love it.
A dish tells us a story, and we are committed to emphasize it, promoting a healthy relationship with performance nutrition.
At CAPONUTRITION, we only work with athletes, from professionals to amateur and recreational. We firmly believe that sport is an essential piece of a puzzle called well-being. Wether you train for a Sunday ride in Malibu with your friends or for the UFC belt, you are an athlete. Carbohydrates are crucial to fuel performance and recovery is as important as training.
Pasta with pesto, when used in the right context, never made anyone gaining weight. Ask Marvin Vettori, who is currently ranked #2 in the UFC middleweight division and holds a record for most significant strikes and most takedowns at 185 lb!
Our goal is helping a selected number of athletes who want to optimize their body composition, recovery, and overall performance though evidence-based coaching.
I have known Dr. Capodaglio for three years, and we have been constantly in touch to discuss traditional Italian recipes that I have been using working as a private chef. Every time we talk about food, I am amazed by how he can explain the scientific aspect of a dish, breaking it down ingredient by ingredient.
His strong formal education background meets his passion for food and tradition, making him a unique interpreter of Italian performance nutrition in the US.
If you want to learn about the Italian culinary heritage and its compatibility with a healthy lifestyle, CAPONUTRITION will not disappoint your expectations!
As a business owner, my days are jampacked full of meetings. However, I am also a competitive athlete and before working with CAPONUTRITION, I often ran out of energy and was exhausted when I arrived at training or so tired that I could not concentrate in my conference calls. Dr Capodaglio has been a miracle worker in smoothening out my energy levels so I can peak for the right activity. Especially leading up to competitions, I no longer worry about weight or food because I know the protocols will have variety (not bland!) and give me the energy to win. Since working with Dr Capodaglio, I have medaled at international major at the Adult level, often beating full-time competitors almost 20 years younger than me.
I work between Los Angeles and NYC. Running a tailoring brand on the country's two coasts is a highly demanding job, and I need to be in top shape all year round regardless of red-eye flights and multiple meetings. Working with CAPONUTRITION helped me understand how my body works. However, the main benefit of our journey was learning the principles determining balanced and sustainable eating. Being born in Italy, it is essential to keep my Mediterranean roots, Dr Capodaglio does not ostracize carbohydrates; he teaches when is their proper timing and pairing. CAPONUTRITION has a unique vision, and I strongly recommend it to those who visited Italy and came back missing the tasty food they enjoyed in Rome, Florence, and Venice.
