If we don't like what we see in the mirror, we tend to think, "Wow, I really need to lose some weight!" But the truth is you might not need to lose weight. What you really need to do is lose fat and gain muscle. That change will make you look better, feel better, and perform better--whether your bathroom scale tells you any weight is lost in the process or not. If you truly change your body composition, you'll see and feel the results you've been looking for! New diet and fitness plans come at us daily in the popular press, but this course is different. Changing Body Composition through Diet and Exercise presents the latest scientific research in the field of performance nutrition. From the macro to the molecular, this solid, science-based information will help you understand your own body better than you ever have. Professor Ormsbee, a renowned nutrition and exercise expert, provides a complete and comprehensive look at human bioenergetics and performance nutrition. Each of the 24 lectures, while supporting the overarching structure of the course, is self-contained with easily accessible material. So whether you prefer the "A-Z" big-picture view or you want to start by delving deeper into a specific area of interest, Changing Body Composition through Diet and Exercise will meet your needs--and help you meet your goals. Based on his own laboratory results and those of his colleagues, Professor Ormsbee presents diet and exercise recommendations in incremental steps that men and women of all ages and fitness levels can follow. Each lecture ends with one specific, easy-to-implement suggestion for your consideration. No gimmicks, no quick fixes, just real science. Professor Ormsbee concludes with some real-world advice for developing your individualized nutrition and exercise program and for sticking with it. The lessons presented in this course can change your life by helping you to feel better, perform better, and be healthier now and into your older years.
