This course is a level 3 ITEC Diploma in Diet and Nutrition for Complementary Therapists

Areas that are covered :
The digestive system,
Functions of water in the diet

A total of 25 questions to be answered in 30 minutes

I would strongly advise this course, it will make you think twice about what you put in your mouth, you will become much more healthly and will be able to offer nutritional advice.

RE: Diet & Nutrition Questions Answered

Hi there,

Ok,

Natural substances are things like paprika, tumeric which are natural not man made,

Synthetic compunds are eg. man made so vanilla essence made from vanilla pods.

Artifical compounds are low calorie sweetners.

Additives prevent spoilage, keep food safer found mainly in processed foods.

Antioxidants: protect food from deterioration caused by exposure to air

Colourings: used to restore the colour lost in processing make it look more attractive

Flavour enhancers: chemicals that minic natural flavours

Emulsifiers: help mix ingredients together eg. oil and water

Stabilizers: prevent separating eg. oil and water.

E numbers: system is used to indicate tried and tested additives that have been approved. E stands for Europe and and number is the chemical name shortened down.

Hope that helps,
Rj

RE: Diet & Nutrition Questions Answered

Hi there,

Im sorry I dont have any examples at hand yetbut will do a sample during the summer which might help others doing this subject so watch out for it!

The case studies should include:

Consultation
Medical history
Lifestyle/ stress levels/ current diet
Client profile ie lactose intolerant
Feed back before and after new improved diet
Home care advice
Overall conclusion

The consultation form should be the ITEC diet and nutrition one - if you dont have it you can download it from their wed site, or some people us their own. Either is acceptable as along as it has medical history, lifesyle, stress levels and current diet.

Client profile - I think is on the ITEC consultation card - it should be clear and concise, alot of people tend to write about the condition ie Irritable Bowel Syndrome and food to avoid, defficencies ie:

IBS is sometimes known as spastic colon, symptoms would include abdominal pain which is related to bowel function, with either constipation or diarrhoea present, and perhaps nausea, wind, bloated stomach, and urgent need to empty the bowels. Dairy and wheat intolerance are two foods which are strongly associated with IBS. Others are coffee, potaotes, corn, onion, beef, oats, cheese. A low yeast diet will help. Avoid high intakes of tea, coffee, cola and alcohol. A prebiotic supplement may help restore normal bowel function. Aloe vera, slippery elm and evening primrose are used successfully in some cases. pepermint and ginger help nausea. Basic long term diet should be healthy with regular relaxed meals eaten slowly and thoroughly chewed. A high fibre diet will help constipation but raw bran should be avoided. Soluble fibre found in fruits and pulses may help. A intake of 1.75-2.25 litres or 3/4 pints fluid should be taken on a daily basis.

Feedback should include things like, found a difference in new diet, stomach cramps eased, found the pepermint eased nausea, ect -

Home care advice- Drink plenty of waterthrough out the day, dont go shopping when your hungry, eat fruit and veg as recommeded on food pyramid, Avoid foods that trigger an attack.80% of the time stay. Keep a record of symptomsexperienced a food eaten at time ect......

Overall concusion - this can be at the end of each case study or at the end of finished product......... draw all information together. Should include should reasoning why you gave them what you gave them ie.... I gave them a high fibre diet as it have been proven in preventing constipation and keeps the bowel healthy.

Full diet plan - 2 weeks - look on websites and through your nutrition book, come up with suitable meals, for lunch dinners, breakfast fluids. Some people do them on a cart formation on the computer andchange and re-arrange them- its not possible to have 14 different breakfast cerals at home!

Hope that this helps you and that you see it before you have to hand them in !

Best of luck,

Rj

RE: Diet & Nutrition Questions Answered

Hi kleopatra,

Are you doing Itec exams or Cibtac? There is a book out you might already have which is straight to the point and Itec papers are based on it - at least I think from past experience.

I would try toget you hands on your module descriptor ( tutors have them- your entitled to them also) and have a look through it- it should be broken down into each system of the body and whats required.

  • I would alsohave a look at the breakdown of the paper- some systems on the day of the exam will have 5 questions based on it others will only have 3 or even 2 . Ie endocrine system and reproductive system. This will then help you to study - focusing on the larger systems.

  • I would always advise my students to try and understand anatomy rather than just trying to learn it - I know this sounds hard but if you can think about the AP logically it then starts to make more sence.

  • I also focus on key words- these would be words that are new to you in a system that might appear on the paper- I'd always finish a system with a new words page - this would have the new words followed bytheir basic meaning ie: Fallopian tubes - female sytem, fertilization occurs. This way when you come to study you have a basic reminder if your stuck.

  • If you tutor notes are long winded - rewrite them into your own words, focus again on key words keep them short and sweet and in bullet point.

  • Print off all Ap sample papers from healthy pages - questions do re-appear from year to year, put reproductive system notes with reproductive sample questions -

  • I would also advise my students to watch Ap for beginners - was on channel 4 - can be found onn bodies website I think.

  • Put posters up around your room where you cant avoid - on areas where your stuck!
  • make flash cards carry them with you, read them on your way to college ie if get the bus ect
  • Have a look on the net, do Ap word searches, crosswords, puzzles, anything to keep it fresh in my mind.


Always look over notes before class and every 3 days afterwards, it helps keep them up there!
otherwise as you move onto the next system you will just forget the last one.

Hope these tips are of some help, they could be used for any subject really...................

Sorry for the delay

Hi there,

Ok,

Natural substances are things like paprika, tumeric which are natural not man made,

Synthetic compunds are eg. man made so vanilla essence made from vanilla pods.

Artifical compounds are low calorie sweetners.

Additives prevent spoilage, keep food safer found mainly in processed foods.

Antioxidants: protect food from deterioration caused by exposure to air

Colourings: used to restore the colour lost in processing make it look more attractive

Flavour enhancers: chemicals that minic natural flavours

Emulsifiers: help mix ingredients together eg. oil and water

Stabilizers: prevent separating eg. oil and water.

E numbers: system is used to indicate tried and tested additives that have been approved. E stands for Europe and and number is the chemical name shortened down.

Does that help answer your question ?

Hi Tanta,

I'm sure your deadline has been and gone at this point - sorry to hear about your computer crashing and losing your work it always seems to happen at the worst time - some computer shops will transfer all your data on to an external hardrive and your can access all files then, running it from another Pc.

Hope you didnt pack it in
