Translate Nutrition Knowledge into Client Benefits
Surrounded by endless fad diets and quick fixes, clients look to their trainers and coaches to separate fact from fiction and provide practical nutrition information.
In this course, you will explore the science of nutrition, evidence-based relationships between nutrition and long-term health, and how to guide clients toward healthful food choices, while remaining in your scope of practice.
Learn about the chemical structure and function of macronutrients (carbs, protein, and fat) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants), as well as the fundamentals of nutrient digestion, absorption, and metabolism, in an easy-to-understand yet comprehensive way.
Developed by Rachele Pojednic, PhD, EdM, NBC-HWC, CSCS, and Emily Johnson, MS, RD, this course also reviews and assesses the claims, challenges, and risks associated with today’s trending diets—invaluable knowledge when coaching clients. Plus, you’ll gain an understanding of how and where to access evidence-based nutritional resources.
Upon completion, you will be able to:
- Recognize the basic chemical structure and bodily use of macro- and micronutrients
- Identify the fundamentals of nutrient digestion, absorption, and metabolism
- Utilize tools such as the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, FDA Nutrition Facts Labels, and evidence-based nutrition programs
