Does this one surprise you? It shouldn’t. The study of food and how it affects the body is an interesting choice for many felons who have found themselves wondering how they can keep their health optimal under the stressful conditions of incarceration.
Many felons are, in fact, nutritional experts just from spending a lot of time around weight lifters! So for those who want to hone their skills in the science of nutrition, a degree is the logical next step.
There are many nutritional career options which correspond to medical fields, and not all felons are able to work in said fields, as we mentioned before…but a qualified nutritionist isn’t confined to only the medical arena.
You may work with private clients or companies, helping them plan menus to ensure healthy outcomes. A nutritionist will work closely with individuals to explain and monitor dietary habits, provide educational services, and aid them in their understanding of how organic versus genetically modified foods work on the human body.
There’s an odd trend occurring in modern America. People are living longer, yet we’re plagued with historically high numbers of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Now more than ever, nutritionists are greatly needed and the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts this demand will continue to increase as the years go by.
