Learn Your Way to Weight Loss

All you need is 3-6 hours of spare time a week, for four weeks commencing 17th August 2015, to join the University of Aberdeen's online Nutrition and Wellbeing course which promises to teach the scientific basics and debunk myths.

Course co-leader, Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi, says “We hope anyone who completes the University of Aberdeen’s Nutrition and Wellbeing course will be able to make more informed choices about their own diet and wellbeing. You’ll gain the skills to evaluate nutrition information from varied sources, and apply that knowledge.”

The course covers four main areas:

  • The makings of a ‘healthy diet’: What are the principal constituents of food? Which components of your diet can promote wellbeing and reduce the risk of diseases?
  • Why do we eat what we eat? What are the ‘drivers’ that influence our food choices? How do we make sense of available nutrition information?
  • Food and disease: Can you really eat your way to health?
  • Nutrition fads, myths and the plain truth: Is there such a thing as a ‘miracle’ diet? Do ‘superfoods’ exist? Or are our genes to be blamed for our current nutritional habits?

Largely video based, the Nutrition and Wellbeing course aims to teach the skills to evaluate nutrition information from varied sources, and apply that knowledge to make informed choices about your own lifestyle, diet and wellbeing.

No prior knowledge or qualifications are required to join the course. You can get full details here.
