I am glad to hear that it does take time. I had it in my head that everyone finishes the chapters in a week or two. Thank you for letting me know where you're at.
Suzanne says to finish the chapters first. Then email her and tell her when all your chapters are complete and she will then start her study plan, which will take 6 weeks. I PM'd her about that last week because I was confused too!
Does anyone find it "impossible" to remember ALL the foods listed under every vitamin and labs (Na, K, Cl.....)?
I just took a break from studying!I'm also doing suzanne's plan and I am hoping to finish the book in 2 weeks. I'm doing 5 chapters per day.
If I score 75% or higher, I just go over the rationales of all the questions whether I got it right or wrong and I read all the pyramid points in the chapter. If I score lower than 75%, I go back and read the chapter, then go over the rationales of all the questions.
I did 90% on the nutrition part so I didn't have to read the chapter
BUT! I agree that it's impossible to memorize all the food listed so I try to "generalize" some food so it's easier to remember like food that are rich in colors (banana,squash,carrots,cantaloupe,etc) are rich in K, food that are processed,canned or seafood are rich in Na, Dairy food is usually rich in Ca. Those are the easiest to remember. For chloride, I had to memorize at least 3 food.
There are also diets that you just have to memorize the food in it
Such as food high in thiamine, gluten-containing food, and low-purine diet. These categories..we just have to memorize it
Goodluck in your studying! We still have a long way to go in finishing the first part but we can do this!
