Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is great for someone who wants an introductory course on how to eat well, a general study of how bodily functions work, what foods are important to each organ, what foods are healthy and which foods are not healthy, and to gain knowledge about dieting and supplements and are they necessary for everyday life. The context throughout the course are straightforward and with a lot of detail, so there are several subject matters that are covered.
The highlights of this course was some of the assignments I've done that had to do with keeping records of my fat, protein, and carbohydrate intake. It was like keeping a food journal, and I got to learn how to convert some of the grams and milligrams within the foods I consumed. I learned a lot of statistics and how well or poor I ate during an average of 3 days.

Advice for students:
Students have to develop the patience to read about 3 to 4 chapters at a time so they can have a better understanding of the assignments and quizzes they would need to do after. Background knowledge isn't necessary to take the course, but it would be helpful during the discussion forums. The course requires minimal research since mostly everything is in the textbook needed for the course.
