Introduction to plant based nutrition
How is your nutrition right now? What foods do you mainly eat? We will introduce the benefits of a plant based diet and why they are becoming so popular in recent times. This lesson provides you with the information on what type of plant based diets there are, and which one will suit you for your own personal goals in life.
So now you know the benefits of a plant based diet, where exactly do you start when building one for your personal needs? What are the essential nutrients? In this lesson complex, scientific information will be translated in easy to understand terms. We will look at our first group of essential nutrients, macronutrients, and how we make sure we get the recommended amounts from a vegetarian/vegan diet.
What about Vitamins and Minerals? These are essential for health, and unsurprisingly plant based foods are packed with them. Learn the importance of the micros, where to get them, and what happens if you do not include micronutrients in your daily diet.
Which diet suits you?

Amazing courses! Great people! Love the learning environment! Highly recommended and affordable! Anyone can learn at their own pace. I now have 23 different diplomas from Shaw and counting, lol.
At first I wasn't sure how I would get on with web learning etc but have found it very easy to navigate, access and look through.
Thank you to my lecturer Laura your amazing and very helpful thank u for making our lesson fun and interesting really glad and would love to communicate and help each other
Such a variety of courses available with wonderful interaction during webinars. I love he Sports Nutrition course I am currently taking, so much that I have signed up for several more courses.
Sorry for the long review but felt it was important. I want to review the FABULOUS course through the Shaw Academy on Diet & Weight Loss Management.
The nutrition course has been great so far. If you are just learning about health, they start off with very basic information so this is a great place to start.
I love the nutrition course by Laura. Her personality is lovely.
Thank you for a fantastic online platform! I've so far done the personal nutrition and is currently working through the advance nutrition course. I've also signed up for the child nutrition and the diet and weight loss course.
I have only had 3 lesson so far in the diet and weight management program and I'm already able to advise people on healthy eating habits and plans and explain to them what happens in the body when certain foods are eaten. I am also very happy with the interactive approach Stacy takes in teaching the course, it makes it very interesting and something to look forward to even though I have to sit up and listen to it at night after a very busy day because of my time zone.
I recently started the "Diet & Weight Management" course and have not enjoyed learning about something new, as much as I am this one, in the longest time. I get more excited with every lesson and cannot wait to have the correct knowledge to help me improve my life style.
