Students will learn the components of energy balance (intake andexpenditure), the role of macronutrients and micronutrients, the use of nutritionlabeling information related to energy balance, and how to apply all of thisinformation to maintain a healthy body weight. Students will also calculate andanalyze their personal energy intakes and expenditures over a three day period andcreate a personal action plan.
