STANFORD CONTINUING STUDIES BERRY-ELIGIBLE COURSESThis Fall, select Continuing Studies courses will be Berry-eligible for employees participating in Stanford’s BeWell program.
**In order to receive a Berry, students must take the course for Credit or a Letter grade.** Students will be asked to choose the credit option during the registration process. The Continuing Studies program will report student attendance to the BeWell office at the conclusion of the quarter. And, as always, all Continuing Studies courses are STAP-fund eligible.
Fall courses that are Berry-eligible include:
Course: Sports Nutrition (SCI 46)
Instructor: Clyde Wilson, Research Associate, Biochemistry, UC San Francisco
Schedule: 9 weeks, Wednesdays, 6:30 - 9:00 pm, Sep 26 - Dec 5
Format: On-campus course
Properly coordinating your nutrition with exercise can dramatically improve your exercise benefits, including weight loss, health, and performance. In this course, we will examine how nutrition for performance addresses delaying fatigue, driving adaptation, and speeding recovery. Delaying fatigue requires hydration and fuel supply, and proper recovery demands a broad spectrum of nutrients. Adaptation (the body’s ability to improve through changes in gene expression) is also influenced by nutrition. For example, staying hydrated and keeping alcohol intake low can naturally increase testosterone and growth hormone production by 25 percent or more.
This course will review the science of sports nutrition and will guide you in applying this information to your own personal sports nutrition program. The important foundations of your program are separated into what you are consuming during and right after exercise (calories, fluids, electrolytes) and throughout the rest of your day (meals, snacks, hydration). By covering both theory and application, the course will be equally relevant to those interested in the science and those wanting to improve their exercise results.
