Ok, let me introduce myself a little. I got into the weight lifting scene like many people; trying to increase my football performance. I scoured the interenet for ways to become bigger stronger and faster, which led me to John Berardi’s website. I read every article on there within a week and eventually found my way to T-Nation. I hardly ever post, but I’ve plunged through the huge depths of articles on my path to increase athletic performance. I’ve went from a flimsy 145 pound freshmen to standing at a solid 190 at the moment (while my damn height has stayed at exactly 5’8"), which I mostly attribute to John Berardi’s nutrtional expertise along with the other trainer’s routines I’ve followed. Well, now high school is almost over and the college admissions are rolling in. I need to make a few choices for the next part in my life.
I’ve been going back and foreward with thinking about pursuing a career in the field of athletics/nutrition. Becoming a nutritionist/dietician is somthing that really interests me, but it’s a hard decision to make because I excel in many different academic subjects. I’m a little unsure of what it takes to become a nutritionist, so I’d like to be able to talk to someone in that field. If I was to persue this career, I’d eventually like to have my own private practice. I believe there is only one school I’m accpeted to that offers a B.S. in nutrition science. Is it possible/better to get a B.S. in biology or biochemistry and then persue graduate studies in nutrition? It would seem to me that a B.S. in nutrion science would be way too limited if I should change my mind about my career path.
Well, I’ll stop my rambling and cross my fingers for someone to shoot me some much needed advice. Thanks a bunch.
