    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it not only teaches you about the health of the everyday person, but if forces you to focus on your own. We are forced to analyze what we eat, and you may be surprised that you are not as healthy as you think.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course would be what we learned about our own personal health, that many people are not aware of, and how many of the things that we consume are not FDA regulated.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest flashcards for when it is time to learn about the different vitamins and what they do. When writing papers or discussions, pick a topic that truly interests you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Nutrition is a science it itself! This course breaks every aspect of nutrition down so that you understand how the body works and how the nutrients in food contribute. Many of us do not know how our digestive system works and the information provided can give you more insight about how your body utilizes food and energy.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about how some food fuels the body and how others harm it. I learned about the chronic diseases that result from bad diet. Another highlight was learning about the "white gold" or sugar, how it affects our body, and the immense amount of it that exist in the foods we consume. I watched a documentary called "Fed Up" which focused on big food and the obesity epidemic. It brought awareness to both of these issues.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is best to be prepared before class so that you can follow along with the lecture. This will make it easier to see what you do not understand. Read the chapter before class. There is anatomy and physiology involved so it will be helpful to review this beforehand. During class, actively listen and participate. The exams are much like the anatomy and physiology exams. You will have to know the structure of the digestive tract for example and know what happens in each part. You will have to understand concepts that involve how nutrients are absorbed and where they are absorbed. Memorizing might not get you the best results for testing. It is best to understand how these mechanisms work. You will have to study before and after the course. It seems like a lot but this is required in order to effectively learn and prosper.
