Nutrition 101

Nutrition 101 is a mandatory course for all diplomas introducing you to the basics of nutrition and digestion; vitamins, minerals, and diets; and your choices as a consumer.  As is true of all our courses, you will gain a new sense of responsibility for your own health.  In this case, this will result in a greater understanding of how and why what you eat affects your health. Since ancient times, much of what we will teach you has been known.  As Hippocrates said, “Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can heal the patient with food.”  In addition, you will feel confident upon completion of this course to counsel friends and family on their best food choices for optimum health.

In order to ensure full competence in this area, we will share critical information to raise your competence by understanding just what are nutrition and nutrients?  How do protein, carbohydrates, and fats work within our body? Just what are the facts about water, the second most important substance required by the human body (air being the first)?

We define food in terms of what to eat; how the stages of life relate to nutrition; and the significance of structured diets. You will also be introduced to what we call the “politics of food.”

Since the beginning of history, food and politics have been intertwined. The earliest of history’s leaders were well aware that the person who controlled the food, controlled the people.  It is in this context (for that matter, it is the context of all our courses), that knowledge is power, and we will take you and your newfound knowledge forward for the betterment of the world.
