NUTR 270 - Sports and Exercise Nutrition


This course will use principles from human physiology to explore the inter-relationship between exercise, energy use, nutrition, and health. We will address basic nutritional principles as a jumping-off point for examining the impact and differences that sport and movement demands exert on the performer’s nutritional needs. Students will consider the socio-cultural environment and behavioral correlates of sport and exercise nutrition from a group and an individual perspective. Students will also gain practical experience in applying these concepts with an eye to making better nutritional choices for themselves and being an advocate for knowledge and availability of good food. Prerequisites: BIOL 120 , BIOL 122 , or ZOOL 101  or equivalent; HHK 114  or NUTR 100 2  ; or consent. Fall, Spring
