We are constantly being bombarded by the media with hints and tips for sensible eating habits and the need for eating healthy foods, yet the information can often seem contradictory. So how do we make sense of it all? With health-related problems and obesity on the increase, there has never been a greater need for clarity on the subject of healthy eating.

No matter what exercise-based course or qualification you have or thinking of getting, the PFS Nutrition ® FITNESS NUTRITION ADVISER course can come as an indispensable complement. It aims to clarify the fundamental aspects of how everything really works with diets. We even have them compared for you.
