Not even a year has gone by since I started this blog. What started with a general fascination with very large people – and how they let themselves get that way while ignoring many warning signs for poor health and obstacles to easier living – has grown into a strong interest in learning about health and nutrition. I’ve discovered that writing about this topic has managed to pique my interest in all things health and fitness related so much that I’m considering a career change.
In order to really put my enthusiasm for health to the test, I’m going back to school!
Yup, I’ve already started taking classes, and I’m finding them extremely interesting.
1. Human Nutrition
– Identifying the many nutrients and learning how they are absorbed, digested, stored, excreted, as well as how they interact.
-All of the major body systems (cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, immune, etc..) will be explored along with how the body uses nutrients to make these systems run.
-Recent research is presented alongside a background of basic nutritional concepts.
-Methods of how nutrition can be emphasized to promote health and well being will be discussed with a special interest in the role it plays in the current health delivery system.
2. Personal Health
– Discussing the principles, problems, and possible solutions for healthy living in today’s environment.
– Topics include addiction, stress, weight issues, fitness, disease, (among others) and the body’s psychological and physiological actions and reactions.
Basically I’m only doing this to shut those people up that think I don’t know what I’m talking about.
Whether I end up becoming a Registered Dietitian, or a Certified Nutrition Specialist, or a Health Consultant (I made that one up), or something else entirely, really it will just be adding a hard earned suffix to the name that is me, which already spells genious. 😉
When I come accross anything interesting that I feel I need to share… I’ll tag it “Lernt in Skool”.
I promise you this: I will never become a puppet for the drug industry, and likely not for any food pyramid put out by the government either.
