Course Description:	 lecture, 3 credits, P: Chem C341 and HPER
N231 or consent of instructor.  Functions of nutrients in human
metabolism; evaluation and fulfillment of nutritional needs; current
literature.  Emphasis on the energy nutrients: protein, carbohydrate
and fat
Course Objectives:	
	1.	Students will be able to define and interpret the
processes of digestion, absorption, transport and excretion of
protein, carbohydrate and fat.
	2.	Students will be able to explain the
interrelationships of protein, carbohydrate and fat in supplying
energy and essential dietary substances to the body.
	3.	Students will be able to interpret the regulation of
metabolism.
	4.	Students will be able to describe the basis for the
nutrient requirements.
	5.	Students will be able to describe the utilization of
protein, carbohydrate, and fat, in fed, fasting, and starvation
conditions.
	6.	Students will understand the relationships of fat,
carbohydrate, and protein calories in relationship to development or
exacerbation of chronic disease.
