NUTRITION BASICS

Nutrition is not an easy topic, especially when you get into the science of the body - whether a two or four-legged one. On this page, we wanted to provide some links to videos and graphics around the Web that we’ve found very helpful when teaching more about nutrition and how our bodies actually work.

An extremely helpful collection of training videos on a variety of topics comes from Crash Course, a popular YouTube channel dedicated to “creating smarter people”. Although the main speaker in these videos talks quickly and you're going to see a very short ad at the beginning of each video, these are some of the most thorough and enjoyable videos available on nutrition and anatomy-related topics. We hope you’ll take the time to watch and learn!

If you’d like to get a bit more scientific, there’s another very helpful resource by Armando Hasudungan who provides a range of biology and medicine videos and diagrams on everything from the digestive system to menopause. Here are a few examples of helpful first videos you might want to check out.
