Both the novice and the rookie fitness instructor/personal trainer will walk away with a better understanding of what happens to our food once it is digested and absorbed as nutrients. We will debunk the myths of eating late at night, exercising on an empty stomach, ketoacidosis and the fat-burning zone. Within the scope of practice, what can a fitness professional tell their clients and where does the liability fall? What publicly available documents can be legally used and how do we use them? We will explore the popular topics of vitamin D, creatine supplements, gall bladder removal, gastric bypass surgery and food deprivation diets.
