Introducing: Applied Nutrition
the second part to PLT4M’s Nutrition Series.
We’re helping students utilize the knowledge they learned through the Intro to Nutrition program, to understand the multitude of factors contributing to weight and overall health and wellness. See below for program details!
We live in a world where body weight and size take center stage in many discussions, including health and performance. But these conversations often gloss over the actual research behind weight change. Additionally, they avoid the real-life implications of weight and health.
In our first introductory series, we worked through fundamental and foundational elements of nutrition. Now it is time we tackle weight and all the intricacies of the subject. This program's goal is to get real about weight and help reorient students so that they can understand the multitude of factors that contribute to overall health and wellness. After breaking it all down, we can talk about some of the factors that surround more specific concepts like eating disorders, emotional eating, and more.
