This online course is designed as an introduction to the concepts related to energy utilization in nutritional science, and the application of these concepts to our daily lives. Students will learn the components of energy balance (intake and expenditure), the role of macronutrients and micronutrients, the use of nutrition labeling information related to energy balance, and how to apply all of this information to maintain a healthy body weight. Students will also calculate and analyze their personal energy intakes and expenditures over a three day period and create a personal action plan.
