HHE5156 Comparative Dietary Approaches

Course Description

Approaches to nutrition in the U.S. are so varied and so often conflicting; most everyone is confused and overwhelmed about what to eat. We analyze the most current, popular, classic, and cutting edge dietary approaches to provide a basis to resolve the confusion. The approaches are based on the following: metabolic health and hormone balance; insulin sensitivity, blood typing and other biochemical characteristics; carbohydrate, protein, and fat proportions; food features; and food combining. We discuss which approaches might be best for overweight, Syndrome X, fatigue, mood, digestive and elimination problems, cravings and addictions, skin conditions, disease prevention and other areas of student interest.
