Course Description: This course is an integration of nutrition, biochemistry, and physiology. Students will be provided with knowledge of how macronutrients, i.e., carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins are used for energy, as well as related physiological regulation. This course also includes nutrition aspects of macronutrients for health promotion and disease prevention. Prerequisites: NUTR 203 and BICH 410 Course Objectives: Upon successful completion of the course, students should have a comprehensive understanding of how metabolism of 1) carbohydrates 2) lipids and 3) proteins and amino acids is regulated at the integrative level. Students should also know typical macronutrients that are considered for health promotion and disease prevention. Learning Outcomes: Students should know and be able to communicate verbally and in writing that 1) dietary recommendations for intake of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins are to meet the energy requirement of the body; 2) essential nutrients that generate health benefits; 3) nutrients have to be digested,absorbed, and metabolized for energy generation; 4) metabolic pathways are coordinately regulated under a given nutritional condition ; and 5) key enzymes that are involved in energy metabolism are appropriately regulated under physiological conditions Evaluation: Exams – (100 points each) 3 * 100 =300 points Research Project and oral presentation 100 points Quizzes – 6 (1 quiz will be dropped, 10 points each) 50 points Bonus (as needed) (up to 10 points) Total 450 points Final grade: A 405 – 450 points B 360 – 404 points C 315 – 359 points D 270 – 314 points F < 269 points Academic integrity statement: An Aggie does not lie, cheat, or steal or tolerate those who do.
