Nutrition is the selection of foods and preparation of foods, and their ingestion to be assimilated by the body. By practicing a healthy diet, many of the known health issues can be avoided.
Health and Nutrition Practitioners are health professionals who specialize in human nutrition, meal planning, economics, and preparation. They are trained to provide safe, evidence-based dietary advice and management to individuals (in health and disease), as well as to institutions. Clinical nutritionists are health professionals who focus more specifically on the role of nutrition in chronic disease, including possible prevention or remediation by addressing nutritional deficiencies before resorting to drugs. Government regulation of the use of this professional title is less universal than for "dietitian."
We offer two courses in this subject and for those wishing to learn more about Vegan and Vegetarian and plant based diets we now offer an alternative course to the health and nutrition and with more and more people now turning away from meat products as new health facts come to light we recommend if wishing to offer a complete objective study into health then both courses offering differing views can be studies.
Recommended Multivitamins everyone would benefit from
Multivitamins Multivitamins are the foundation to a healthy, more vibrant you. They add a healthy balance to your life, ensuring you’re getting the right nutrients while keeping your body clear of toxins from food and the environment.
Essential Supplement Omega 3 Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation (which is the root of chronic illness) and may help lower the risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Try and ensure you purchase a good brand as some cheaper brands can contain mercury.
Vitamin D Your skin makes Vitamin D when it’s exposed to the sun, and it plays a major role throughout your body, supporting your immune system, brain, bones, heart, and much more. Vitamin D is found naturally in a small number of foods, including oily fish, red meat, liver and egg yolks. It's also found in fortified foods like breakfast cereals and fat spreads. However, it's difficult for us to get the recommended amount of vitamin D from food alone so a supplement is recommended.

And those bugs are major players in virtually every part and function of your body — physically, mentally, and emotionally.
In fact, your gut provides nutrients for your cells, prevents harmful bacteria and viruses from taking over, and helps program your immune system. The “gut bugs” also drive your:

TIPS FOR CLIENTS: Your clients will be looking to you for advise. Below are some healthy tips ideas to pass on to your clients.
1. Try adding more foods into your diet, not taking them out Your clients may tend to be more concerned about which foods or food groups to remove as many are perceived as 'bad.' However, the focus should be on incorporating more of the foods often missing from the clients general diet, ensuring they are enjoying fiber-rich fruits, healthy vegetables.
2. Out of Sight "Out of sight, out of mind works for junk food too. Remove tempting treats from view and by not keeping them in view you’ll probably forget you even have them! Try keeping beneficial foods in the front of your fridge so they are the first thing you see when opening up your fridge. It looks better too when its full of fruits, veggies, protein, and healthy snacks
3.Sugar Avoid - cut back remove from diet if possible
4. So what if I have gained Weight? Your clients may be trying to reach an unrealistic body weight. As we age we can often expect to weigh more than we did in our 20s and 30s. It is totally normal and studies show that it is beneficial for supporting bone strength and may even help you live longer. If your client is struggling to lose those last eight pounds they will become easily frustrated and may be tempted then to go on a very low calorie diet required to achieve which in turn will then lead to poor nutrition and cause upset to their metabolism. Get them to expect and accept that our bodies change as we age and that's fine
5. Alcoholic drinks don't count as hydration "If they must drink wine or coffee they will need to hydrate more. Suggest one six-ounce glass of water for every glass of wine or coffee they drink.
6. Eating protein in the mornings helps to prevent sugar cravings in the evening "Increasing protein intake early in the day can help reduce sugar cravings in the late afternoon.
7. Relax and Sit down to eat When a person sits down whilst eating, he or she is more likely to be conscious and is better able to pay attention to the whole process. Eating whilst stressed and in a hurry can actually prevent weight loss so if they are struggling with their last few pounds then ensure they are not eating under stress.
