This course teaches the fundamentals of sports nutrition.I believe that all RDs would benefit from having this information, especially those involved in outpatient counseling. Personal trainers, nutrition store retailers, magazine articles and the internet are rife with misinformation and we need to be the example of sound, evidence-based nutrition advice.
