Reflections on Nutrition Throughout the length of this course I have learned a lot of things that I feel will potentially save my life. The very first assignment we did was the eye opener for me. I have always been a healthy person. I exercise and monitor what I eat regularly. The healthy eating plan paper I wrote made me take a better look at my food intake.

It revealed to me the things I needed to change. Even though the changes were not very drastic, it did improve my health. My stamina and energy levels have increased.

    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.
