Sound Nutrition versus Fad Diets Sound nutritional practices are based on science. Scientists draw conclusions based on empirical evidence. This is information that has been verified through repeated observations or direct experimentation. The use of a fad diet can get in the way of good nutrition and healthful living. These diets are usually not very sustainable and tend to be short-lived. They are often based on weak or badly interpreted science. Research shows that a healthful human diet is not based on any single nutrient or food group. Here are some recommendations for healthful eating: Eat a variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits, whole-grain products, lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, and low-fat dairy products. Drink plenty of water and limit salt, sugar, saturated fat, and trans fat in your diet. Health Products Advertisers understand that many people are looking for new and better ways to stay healthy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
