The Diet and Nutritional Advisor Diploma Course opens by imparting the principles of diet and nutrition. Youll learn what nutrition is, the types of nutrition and the importance of good nutrition. We also look at the food groups and how to balance them.
From this introduction, we dive straight in, as we learn about macronutrients what they are, the different types, and how to incorporate them in your diet. Its then onto micronutrients, which are separated into two types macrominerals and microminerals. Youll learn about the various types and benefits of each, and how to add them to your diet.
We all know we need vitamins in our diet, but do you know which you need and why? We take an exploratory view – discovering the various vitamins that we need in our diet, their benefits, the recommended daily allowance of each, the foods we can eat to meet these recommendations, and the common ailments that can occur as a result of vitamin deficiency.
Of course, we are all different, we all have different nutritional needs – one size does not fit all. The Diet and Nutritional Advisor Diploma Course considers the nutritional requirements of those trying to lose weight, athletes and bodybuilders, pregnant women, infants and children, and the elderly.
Its not just body type that needs to be considered when assessing our nutrition requirements. Our diet plays a big part in our overall health – a change in what we consume can aid in the treatment of diseases and conditions. We look at the specifics of how dietary changes can help those with candida, Crohns Disease, autoimmune diseases, ADHD and diabetes.
We live in a world of varying diet choices and restrictions. In the Diet and Nutritional Advisor Diploma Course, we explore vegetarian, vegan, ketogenic, Mediterranean, South Beach, and alkaline diets dissecting their benefits, disadvantages, variations, and what to eat and avoid when following each of them.
We take a look at probiotics and herbal and antifungal supplements. We consider the various types of each and how and why they may be used. We also look at superfoods nutrient-rich foods that are packed with benefits. Youll learn what they are, why you should include them in your diet, and the different types of superfoods: herbs, fruits, nuts, vegetables and others.
Another consideration when it comes to diet creation and food preparation is allergies and food intolerances. We take an in-depth look, giving you a deep understanding of food allergies, intolerances, and the causes of food poisoning.
Food labels to some, they provide valuable information on the foods they consume. To others, they are undecipherable, while some may sit somewhere in-between. The Diet and Nutritional Advisor Diploma Course levels the playing field, providing awareness of the functions and legal requirements of food labels, explaining common food labelling terms, and passing on the knowledge of how to read food labels.
The course concludes with guidance on how to work with clients in a diet and nutrition setting and how to craft meal plans that will help clients attain their goals whilst considering their personal and dietary requirements.
