NASM Nutrition Series: Navigating Diets

Add to Cart

CEUs: 0

There are literally thousands of diets out there. Some are based on science, but others are mostly hype. That’s why it’s so important for us to be well-informed with the latest facts regarding diets and how they impact our health and quality of life.

This course explores many different diets and it reveals their various levels of safety and effectiveness. It was created by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), which for over 30 years has built its reputation on evidence-based recommendations that adhere to rigorous scientific standards. More than 20 experts in nutrition, psychology and behavior change were consulted to provide the most reliable guidance for people of varying ages, ethnicities, backgrounds, food preferences, and goals.

After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Critique the evidence (or lack thereof) behind different diets
  • Use evidence-based strategies to debate new and emerging trends
  • Discuss valid concerns with a one-size-fits-all approach to dieting

The content in this course was developed for NASM’s Certified Nutrition Coach (CNC) program. If you’re interested in learning more about nutrition, check out our online nutrition courses.
