There are many schools of thought on the most nutritious way to eat.
To try and clear up some of the misconceptions, one of the world’s leading registered dieticians will be speaking at Youngstown State University.
Nancy Clark will be teaching people how to eat better during a speech on Monday, April 8 at the university.
Dr. Nicole Mullins, a professor of exercise science at YSU, was instrumental in bringing Clark to speak.
“This is a real big deal,” Mullins said. “Nancy Clark, she is a world-renowned nutritionist. She works with some very famous athletes. She’s worked with the Celtics, the Bruins, the Red Sox, Olympians, NCAA athletes, and then she works with people who just need help in eating better, and feeling better and being healthier.”
Mullins said Clark teaches people how to eat well in a sustainable way. She doesn’t follow fad diets and focuses on what to eat, not what you shouldn’t eat.
“I feel in today’s world everybody’s trying to say, ‘Avoid this, avoid that,’ and so she has a very positive outlook, and she helps others have a positive outlook about what we should be eating to feel good, and feel well, and enjoy food, because it is yummy, and it should not only help us but be enjoyable,'” Mullins said.
The event is free and open to the public.
It will be at 5 p.m. in the Chestnut Room of Kilcawley Center on the university’s campus.
Special sessions are also available for kinesiology, sports science, dietetics majors as well as student-athletes at YSU.
This event was rescheduled from an earlier date in January.
