    I think my project is all semester long too. We also have quizzes, exams, and participation/attendance. And to top it off, I think my Professor, a RD, is a fanatic about her profession (which is good for her since she has followed her passion). So, like the rest of you I will know more then I wish regarding nutrition. On a positive note, I will be more in tuned with the health of others so when I start nursing school (hopefully this January) I will at least be thinking like a student nurse.

    We have a big dietary project. we have to track what we eat on three different days and then do a whole bunch of different analysis on it to find out where our energy is coming from and how we spend it. Or why we are putting on/taking off pounds..(no more blissful ignronance about broken cookies having no calories... ) We also have to track our activities. Its a big semester long project.

    I'm in Nutrition this semester also. My class is doing that very same project! Pretty neat. I wonder is that like a standard project for this class or something?

    I'm in nuturiton this semester too. Not too bad so far, the readings are pretty interesting;so much has changed since I first started learning this stuff back in grade school. It's an online course with the identical projects as mentioned above.

    Nope. This is the first of many part-time semesters to come.

    I am finished with all of my pre-requisites and co-requisite courses and I am now knocking out the few pre-reqs I need for the RN-BSN program while I await acceptance (hopefully this semester) into the ADN program.

    Good for you. That is probably what I will do also. That will make it a little easier to stick in there for the long haul once I finish my RN. Good luck

    Good luck to you too. :wink2:

    Hey, I started my class... I have two chapters to complete by the end of this week. Plus homework and an essay. Honestly, I am actually enjoying myself. I cannot wait to start the project in a few weeks.

    Question, is meat considered a complex carb? I know it is considered an animal starch (glycogen) but this is washed away with preparing the meat for sale, so what would meat be considered? Complex, simple, a combination or the two neither? :uhoh21:

    I havent heard that. The last I knew, meat is a protein.

    Thanks, I was just confused as to why glycogen (found in animal muscle tissue) is listed under polysaccharides. After checking some numbers and the Appendix, I figured it out.

    Now I feel silly.

    Dont feel silly. Food is complicated. :wink2: I guess it has to be to work in our complicated bodies.

    I am taking nutrition right now. I am enjoying it a lot. My class has been in session since August and it will be over at the end of October. I have learned a ton of information. It for sure has changed my eating habits. We had to track our eating habits for 3 days and then we have to write a 10 page paper about it answering various questions the instructor has for us. It is so eye opening!
