Nutrition 2: Are we what we eat?

University of Victoria Retirees Association -


We are pleased to offer a second series on nutrition again ably led by Greg Mulligan from the School of Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education. He takes a hands-on approach to helping us eat well and sensibly based on the most recent research and science. In this series he will explore several concepts related to food and human health. From the basics of understanding metabolism and calories, to looking at some of the complex nutrient relationships that contribute to your health. He will discuss the intricate behaviours that drive people to adopt a variety of popular diets and look at some of the strategies to successfully navigate your food journey.
