This module provides education on various popular diets, including keto, fasting, and shake diets. We will outline the premise of each diet and how they have shaped our attitudes and beliefs about food over the years. It emphasises the importance of a balanced and sustainable approach to eating, highlighting the risks of fad diets and the benefits of being empowered to make choice, rather than blindly following food rules. The module aims to provide learners with the knowledge and tools needed to make informed decisions about their dietary habits and promote long-term health and wellness.
Module Learning Outcomes
- That popular fad diets like keto, paleo, and fasting don’t embody the full meaning of healthy eating and often lead us to poor relationships with food and our body.
- That health is the result of daily habits and behaviours repeated long term, not short sharp bursts of cleanses or detoxes
- That health is a journey not a destination, so embrace small daily behaviours for good health and ditch the ‘overhaul’ mindset.
