Topics covered will include sodium balance (12 body salts), food combining, overeating and digestion, blood sugar, glycogen stores the relationship between protein and fat, and burning fat.
Fitness theory is discussed in great detail. The terminology of fitness is explained, and a thorough review is given to all five elements of fitness. The creation of your personal fitness plan, body sculpting, and various myths are evaluated. Finally, NAP will teach you how to prep for competitions, and even offer a session on personal problem-solving.
