I start by telling you that I'm fine. I am in a period of my life when I feel very energetic, healthy and happy, when only beautiful things happen and the people around me make me feel as if I could move mountains.
I still can't say that I fell in love with sports, but I certainly fell in love with its effects on my health and my figure. Iulian Dinu he shows me at every workout what it means to really know how to dose physical effort for maximum results, even when the traffic makes me delay 30 minutes.
And if the fact that I got to do regular sports and make it a priority still pleasantly surprises me and increases my self-esteem, the fact that I also take a Nutrition Technician course makes me feel extremely brave and strong.
I told you some time ago I signed up for a course accredited by a Nutritionist Technician at Fitness Education School. Even though I chose to do this to learn to eat right and not necessarily to practice, this does not mean that I did not have to choose the most recommended and complete course on the market for this field.
The fact that the course trainer is a metabolic disease specialist with more than 10 years of experience - was one of the main reasons why I am confident that I will have a solid food education.
But the truth is, I didn't expect it to be that solid. The first two courses were about the digestive system, and believe me they weren't superficial courses at all. Even if Dr. Daniela Stegaru, the course trainer, explained everything with a lot of patience and as much as possible to people who have not done six years of medicine, she took care to provide us with complete information on how each component of this system works. The study at home is necessary and obligatory, and in the course manual (which is quite thick) that I received at the beginning, the information is very well structured.
Know that I have not been discouraged, even if it is not easy. I liked the second course more. I learned about macronutrients and finally I learned to read food labels better. Reading food labels has become one of my favorite activities now, and I'm as shocked as it can be by some liars. In my opinion, we should all know how to read labels properly so that companies no longer take advantage of people in good faith.
I go to the Nutritionist Technician course one weekend a month from 09:00 to 13:00. Sometimes we stay a little longer because the doctor is nice and answers all our questions. And all the myths. Myths like that you should not drink water before or during a meal because it dilutes gastric juices. Nothing is more false, because hydrochloric acid cannot be diluted with water.
I learned and finally realized that diet is just something we start with for a healthy lifestyle. And I also understood that the question "is food x good? ” it is not a correct question, but that we must always mention why. For example, it is correct to ask if food x is good for people who want to lose weight and have a certain intolerance. Because pizza may not be good for weight loss, but it can give an athlete exactly what he needs at a given time. That's what a nutritionist thinks. And so I began to think.
In addition, this course helps me focus more on nutrition, not food. It helps me look at food as a fuel for my body and teaches me to provide the most nutritious foods that will help my body function at its maximum capacity and make it healthier.
I'm glad I took this step. My classmates come from different fields and at each meeting, each of them brings a new set of equally different questions and perspectives so that I always learn something new.
I also wanted to let you know that on December 12, 2015 begins a new series at the course accredited by the Nutritionist Technician, and those who register by November 30 benefit from a discount of 200 lei. More details about the course can be found HERE.
