Course Overview

How many times are you asked nutrition questions and are not sure of the answer? While you don’t specialize in nutrition, clients think you should have answers to their nutrition questions. This course will provide you with a foundation in nutrition science and how it applies to keeping people healthy. It explains basic principles and terminology, and applies those concepts to real-life situations: dietary guidelines, heart health, weight and body composition, and bone health and osteoporosis. This course enables fitness, health and foodservice professionals to feel confident in their ability to transmit reliable general nutrition information to their clients, and to present special diets to clients by understanding the concepts behind them.
