What is nutrition? Roughly defined, nutrition represents the foundation upon which human health is built. It is fundamentally impossible to build and maintain a high standard of health, without the key nutrients the human body needs. Which of course is determined by the dietary choices we make in our daily lives. By studying what the body needs, when it needs it and in what kinds of quantities, you begin to develop a blueprint for better human health. Which in turn puts you in prime position to help and support not only yourself, but others too. The professional diet and nutrition sector has never been more relevant. Thanks to online study, it’s also never been more accessible.
This introductory tutorial has been designed for anyone with an interest in human health in relation to nutrition. Study a broad definition of nutrition, along with each of the key nutrients the human body needs and daily energy requirements. Explore the basics of the whole food nutrition, the body’s basal metabolic rate and the contribution nutrition plays to ongoing health and wellbeing..
