Description

Diet and the impact of diet on metabolism are something that is generally ignored in the education of health and medical professionals.  The lesson that you are about to undertake is the audio recording and presentation that directly comes from a college lecture that I give to my nursing and allied health students in their human anatomy and physiology course.  The purpose of the lecture is to provide the information so that when you are asked to provide an opinion or suggestion for how one's diet will impact metabolism and body composition you can do so from an informed position.  In this effort, every attempt is made throughout the lecture to provide the information from a scientific perspective and not the dogmatic perspective that we tend to get into heated arguments about.

The lesson here is broken into distinct talks that cover smaller portions of each major topic presented in a 90-minute lecture to nursing and allied health students.  The first portion of the lesson deals with the issues of Calories and introduces the idea of Caloric balance and Basal Metabolic Rate.  The next portion goes through the various macronutrients and recommendations for carbohydrates, lipids and amino acids (proteins) based on energetic and metabolic necessities and utilization.  Finally, we will examine some of the historical perspectives of diets and then what we need to know to help ourselves and others determine what, when, and how much we should be eating.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for any one who has an interest in human physiology or a desire to increase their understanding of how diet impacts their metabolism
  • Pre-medical, Allied-health or Nursing students should want to take this course
  • People interested in metabolism and body compostion should want to take this course

Diet and the impact of diet on metabolism are something that is generally ignored in the education of health and medical professionals.  The lesson that you are about to undertake is a copy of the lecture that I give to my nursing and allied health students in their human anatomy and physiology course.  The purpose of the lecture is to provide the information so that when you are asked to provide an opinion or suggestion for how one's diet will impact metabolism and body composition you can do so from an informed position.  In this effort, every attempt is made throughout the lecture to provide the information from a scientific perspective and not the dogmatic perspective that we tend to get into heated arguments about.

The lecture is broken into three distinct talks, each approximately 30 minutes.  The first deals with the issues of Calories and introduces the idea of Caloric balance and Basal Metabolic Rate.  The second deals with macronutrients and recommendations for carbohydrates, lipids and amino acids (proteins) based on energetic and metabolic necessities and utilization.  The third goes through the general recommendations for diet and the historical perspectives of diets along with how we know what we should be eating.

Physiologist, Health and Science Educator

With a background in physiology, sports medicine and health care, and education that is coupled with my many publications on the science of exercise and physiology related to obesity and health issues of obesity, I routinely find myself working with people and students to the point where they are able to have a better understanding of the general principles of health and fitness.  

In the classroom and lecture halls, I use a presentation style that makes every effort to pass information to students based on how they can make a practical application of the information in their chosen career paths. While my writing and presentations outside of the classroom, either at conferences or to general population, is done with an effort to convey the science of what we know (not what we think we know or what we hope were true) so that they can understand why health professionals would have them follow the recommendations that are given to them to do.

In these various endeavors, I have worked closely with each person to expand their understanding of the implications of exercise and fitness as it relates underlying scientific principle of physiology for their health or for medical professions to educate those in their care.

In the classroom and lab, I work with many students and members of our college community to understand that not all exercise methods are equal to each other,
and the concepts of how to establish exercise programs based on the science of exercise physiology. Additionally, understand that not everything that makes the popular press and news headlines are accurate (or even correct sometimes).
