Nutrition and Diet
The Cuesta Student Health Services and Nutrition Department have teamed up to offer a free program to students: NEAT (Nutrition Education Action Team). Students can come to the Health Center and meet with a peer educator to learn about nutrition, discuss their personalized diet analysis, and set positive lifestyle and nutritional goals such as nutrition for athletics, fitness, weight changes, or just to get a few ideas for SMART goal changes after discussing their diet analysis.
All of our Nutrition peer educators have completed the full weekend Cal Poly Bacchus peer education training certification, the Cuesta College Mental Health Training, 3 Nutrition courses, an Independent Study course with me, and an international nutrition conference. They use the Esha Research Nutrition Calc Diet Analysis Software, which is more detailed and meaningful than current free Apps.
Each session is 30 minutes, confidential, fun, and free for enrolled Cuesta students!
PBNC Cuesta has a Plant Based Nutrition Club, check out their Facebook for more information!
