Updates Made to OER

The following updates have been made since the first edition of this OER:




Update Made

8/5/22 7 – Body Weight and Health All pages This unit was fully revised to incorporate more of the complexity and nuance of this topic, including additional information about social determinants of health, weight stigma, eating disorders, the “obesity paradox,” and non-diet approaches to health and weight. The revisions to this unit are substantive enough that updates were also made to the guided notes, study questions, and exam questions associated with this unit.
8/5/22 Unit 10 – Nutrition and Physical Activity Essential Elements and Benefits of Physical Fitness This page was updated to better align with the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, highlighting four main elements of physical fitness (cardiorespiratory fitness, musculoskeletal fitness, flexibility, and balance).
