HW 200 - Nutrition for Life

2.00 credits.
The goal of this course is for students to develop a better understanding of nutrition and how to create healthy choices based on their specific dietary needs.  Students will learn about food energy sources (carbs, proteins and fats), macronutrients, micronutrients, and developing a meal plan/grocery list.  Specific diets will be introduced (gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian, vegan, etc.), as well as pro and con discussions of popular and fad diets.  Students will learn how nutrition can affect their health by learning about several comorbidities and how proper nutrition has been proven to prevent and/or decrease complications.    Students who have taken the BIO 200 Nutrition course are prohibited from taking HW 200.  In addition, this course does not fulfill requirements in the natural or physical sciences.
