It was a crash course in nutrition basics, much appreciated, and a little overwhelming in terms of the amount of information to retain.
Week three is almost in the books and did not disappoint. As hoped for, the Functional Health track went more in depth this week and has me excited for what’s to come. So much so that I’m going to make it the sole focus of this week’s entry.
The highlight of the week for me was participating in my first 90-minute mentor coach session. It was kind of an intro session, facilitated by Shelley-Anne McKay, but gave a good sense of what this element of the curriculum will entail.
The highlight of the week was a 90-minute Zoom webinar with Chris Kresser, key faculty, and administrators. Betsy Salkind, the lead mentor coach, was there, as well as Tracey Long, the lead teacher assistant. Chris gave a 5-minute welcoming speech and then the other staff and faculty took turns introducing themselves.
As stated in my previous journal entry, I’ve found Chris Kresser’s From Busy to Balanced Program to be one of the most useful aspects of the ADAPT pre-course. In today’s post I will share how I’ve been using it.
I signed up for the ADAPT program on April 2nd, a week after the enrollment period opened, which has allowed me to spend plenty of time with the pre-course material. I’ve found it valuable in multiple ways. In today’s journal entry, I’ll do a quick unpacking for you.
