I recently completed the Nutrition, Health, and Lifestyle: It was an extremely insightful experience to see what a traditional Nutritionist learns and eventually coaches or advocates to their clients.
All information in this article is for educational purposes only.
It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition. Although I did learn a few useful things that I will outline below, for the most part I was shocked and disappointed to see the mis-truths and lack of unbiased information being presented to the students.
Well, we all know that industry sponsors many universities through expensive grants, so could we really expect these teaching institutions to maintain an impartial perspective?
I actually feel bad for anyone who spends the money on a 4-year Nutrition Degree, because they may enter their study with high hopes of helping others, but how can they really help guide others through nutrition and diet when they are being taught lies?
What I Learned As I mentioned above, there were a few things that I learned from this course, or at least that I felt were truthful and relevant. Obviously this is important, and was factual in the course.
Additionally, it was pointed out that vegan and vegetarian diets also improve plasma lipid concentrations and have been shown to reverse atherosclerosis progression. Certainly important factors to consider, and should be addressed for meat-eaters too!
Clearly these facts cannot be denied! The other parts of the course are where I found myself wincing and shaking my head in utter dismay. Anyone who is working with nutrition and food allergies, autism, ADHD and infertility all of which have completed skyrocketed in the last decade worldwide knows that something has seriously gone wrong.
If you are unsure in any way, please watch these documentaries on GMO foods and health: I also highly recommend the book The Unhealthy Truth: An excellent read for anyone looking to learn more on the subject of GMO foods and health!

No mention of the antibiotics and hormones in conventional milk, the added sugar in breakfast cereals or the chemical colorings in sports drinks. In my professional experience, more people are being affected by all types of food additives more than ever before, because food additives are being used in food more than ever before!
Flavor enhancers MSG, ribonucleotidenitrates, sulfites, aspartame and other artificial sweeteners and chemical colorings are creating an absolute health epidemic! To gloss over this issue and to not acknowledge the danger of food additives in relation to nutrition and health is both irresponsible and just plain idiotic.
Sadly, the food industry has a lot of money to hide the truth. Other foods which are categorized as GRAS are salt, pepper, vinegar and baking powder. How is it possible that MSG is considered as safe as vinegar? The worst part of all is that this is what Nutritionists are learning in school.
Will they be able to identify an MSG intolerance in their client? You cannot advise people on food and not take into account the potential effect of chemical food additives! People may eat this mess and think they are having a heart attack!
Vegans can simply use extra-virgin olive oil, an organic almond butter or tahini sesame seed paste. People on a raw food vegan diet will not need any spread to put on bread, and they can use fresh lime or lime for salad dressing and add tahini to a raw cracker.If you are shy or withdrawn and feel uncomfortable communicating to a large audience, taking a course can help in the following ways: Gain basic writing skills: With these courses, you can improve your writing and develop your skills in writing informational, persuasive communications.
