I decided I needed a new project to keep me out of trouble outside of work, so today I purchased a Groupon for an Online Nutritional Therapist Certification Course from the Health Sciences Academy. It pairs my struggling desire to lead a healthy lifestyle with online deals, it was a match made in heaven. Armed with a coupon code for an additional 20% off the deal plus 6% cashback through Ebates, I saved 94% off the enrollment cost. Being fully aware I am on a strict budget, I came to the conclusion that it was worth the money to educate myself on nutrient deficiencies and learn to build nutritional programs that can better my quality of life. I’ve been tracking my own nutritional intake without any formal training and lots of Googling, MyFitnessPal, and common sense guessing for years. I still have no idea what I am doing.
If this program can give me any sort of guidance and applicable information to better my vegetarian lifestyle without becoming an insane health nut (I want to be a sane health nut) and possibly help others on their journey towards wellness, than it will be worth every penny. If not, I shall pen a strongly worded letter to the Academy.
I plan to update this blog with my experiences throughout the course. I hope you will follow my progress with positive support, constructive feedback, and questions!
