My Travel Story

I am going to be going to Florence, Italy to study nutrition. I have always been interested in nutrition since I was in middle school. I did a lot of research about how to lose weight in a healthy way. I looked mostly at diet rather than exercise, since my research stated that diet is the main contributor of losing weight.
These classes will be very different than what I know now to be healthy. The Italians idea of health will be completely different than what we think in America. Italy is said to be one of the healthiest countries! People in America are not really educated about healthy habits. I will be able to take this with me as a dietitian in the future and use it as a way for my clients to be healthy in a different way than what we know. I would really be interested in learning how a country that is so popular for pasta and pizza, can be one of the healthiest.
