Isaac Pohlman (@isaacpohlman) is a dietitian originally from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and currently residing in the Chicagoland area. Isaac majored in human physiology at Alma College and attended grad school at the University of Michigan where he studied nutritional sciences. He was inspired to pursue nutrition after developing a series of health issues, including hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, and type 1 diabetes, during his high school and early college days.
