Nutrition Psychology: Food Choice and Eating Habits – Distance Education Course presented by CADENCE HEALTH

This is the course everyone’s talking about and can’t get enough of! ‘Nothing else like it anywhere!’ Why is it that some foods have more appeal to us than others? Why are some foods harder to say ‘no’ to? And why is it so hard to change our eating habits? The course delves into the science and the psychology behind our eating habits to help make sense of why some habits die hard, and just how they came about in the first place. Understanding why we eat what we eat is essential knowledge to anyone who works in the area of health and nutrition. Also ideal for those working in the nutrition, fitness or weight-loss industries. Creating eating plans for others will be most effectively done if you hold a thorough understanding of food psychology. Why not Get Started Now. This subject is an elective in the Certificate of Nutrition & Health Coaching program... why not change lives!
