Are you ready to geek out and get scientific on all the fundamentals of nutrition, health and weight management?

‘The Fundamentals of Nutrition, Health & Weight Management’ is a book that accompanies our Foundation Academy course (Certified by the AfN and REPS). It’s designed to teach you ‘the basics’ like you’ve never learned them before by going into great depth on all the core areas of nutrition, including calories, macronutrients, micronutrients, sleep, supplements, habit change, food environment and more.

This book is for the person looking to geek out and take their nutrition knowledge to a more advanced level. Each heavily-referenced chapter gives you an evidence-based overview on topics that most have heard about, but which are rarely fully explained in this much detail. After reading this book you’ll have a far greater understanding of how food interacts with your body and how we interact with it, enabling you to manage your own nutrition or that of someone else with far more confidence.
