Steve Smith, RD CSSD LD is the team Nutritionist for the Houston Texans. Steve is a former Division I collegiate soccer player and formally trained chef. Throughout his time as an elite athlete sports dietitian he has had the pleasure of working in the NFL, NBA, Elite training facility, and the US Army Special Forces. When he’s not busy with work or in the midst of an NFL season, Steve enjoys spending time with his wife and his 14-month-old daughter. Having a hectic schedule and a young daughter he rarely gets enough sleep, but strives to maintain consistency throughout the season. Thanks to the accumulation of sleep debt throughout the years of working in athletics he can sleep anywhere virtually on command, but prefers a cozy memory foam mattress at home where if he is woken up, it’s to a smiling baby girl and wife.
