Diets and Body Health

Meeting timeCRNSession
Mondays 4:45PM-5:35PM 45601Full Term

Some people maintain a healthy life style and an ideal body shape, whereas others struggle to loss several pounds or keep a healthy body. The fact that two thirds of the current population is overweight and obese has become a concern of public health. The nutritional, genetic, dietary, cultural, environmental, metabolic, and behavioral factors all have been thought individually or together to contribute to the obesity epidemic. In this one credit hour course, you will learn conceptual mechanisms that link these factors to your health. You will listen to lectures, watch movies, and discuss your own opinions with your classmates and the instructor about the origin, prevention, and treatment of this nutrition/dietary and public health problem
