My course goals for Advanced Nutrition are:
-Identify the guidelines underlying a healthy diet and be able to make appropriations for individuals with food challenges.
-Identify the three (3) major human energy systems and the various nutrients needed to sustain them.
-Differentiate between the digestion, absorption, distribution and metabolic functioning of the macronutrients and how those nutrients contribute to optimal health and physical performance.
I plan to incorporate creative and thought-provoking assignments into the lecture component of the course in order to bring all aspects of the three goals together to create a larger picture of how an individual’s food choices ultimately affect their body systems and their ability to function in a healthy and fit manner.
