Questions And Answers On Nutrition Facts

John asks…

How do nutritionists find nutrition facts in food and drink?

When I look at a bag of chips or a bottle of Coke, I see the nutrition facts. Then I always wonder, how do they find this out? Anyone out there that knows the REAL way?

mikiesen answers:

There are the most common ways:
The company sends their food to the laboratory for chemical testing. The lab burns the sample then tests for the exact amount of vitamins and minerals.

Or instead of sending food to a laboratory, the company uses a database of foods that have Already been analyzed. They type in how much of each ingredient, serving size & cooking method to get the nutrition facts.

Davina asks…

How do you create a nutrition facts label?

A nutrition facts label is required on most pre-packaged food in North America. How would someone go about creating one for one of their products?

mikiesen answers:

This is actually a great question, I’ve been through this and I can tell you this; if you will produce more than 10,000 units or will have I believe 10 or more employees then you need a nutrition label and it needs to be displayed in certain areas. You can find an independent food lab in the yellow pages under laboratory. Now things may of changed so I would suggest going to the FDA website (www.fda.gov) just type in business in the search bar and you’ll find tons of info regarding policies. I would suggest if you are serious, finding out if a college near you deals with the culinary arts and if they have any cross classes in business that may help people out for class projects etc.

Jim asks…

What is the font type used on Nutrition Facts labels?

I am doing a graphic design project where I need to recreate a nutrition facts label. Anyone know the font type used in the standard nutrition facts label? I don’t care about font size. I will figure that out myself. I just want to know the font type. Thanks!

mikiesen answers:

What for what country?

In Canada the template you get from the government is done in Quark and in Helvetica (Regular & Bold) or Helvetica Condensed (Regular & Bold) depending on the size it falls under. It doesn’t necessarily have to be in that face, the rules in constructions state:

“The characters in the nutrition facts table
•Shall be displayed in a single standard sans serif font that is not decorative and in such a manner that the characters never touch each other or the rules (B.01.450(3)(a));”

In case your in the US I just found a thing on the FDA’s rules..

Tile “Nutrition Facts” can be in Franklin Gothic Heavy or Helvetica Black, then everything else is in Helvetica and Helvetica Black.

Once you get through all the loquacious government BS you can find all the rules and regulations. Everything is very specific from type sizes, rule sizes, and leading.

Here is a link for the US which would help you out if your from there

Hope that helps

Questions And Answers On Nutritional Supplements For Kids

Paul asks…

What can I sneak into my kids food that will give them extra vitamins?

My kids don’t want to eat most vegetables. I give them chewable vitamins, but was wondering if anyone knew of a good nutritional supplement that I could mix into some foods they do eat. It would have to be a smooth powder or liquid that I could mix into macaroni and cheese or pancakes, etc.
Steelegrave, making sure my kids get their vitamins IS parenting. You’re an a s s
Thanks for the updated info steelegrave. I probably should have mentioned in my original post that I am talking about a 2 yr. old and a 3 yr. old who has a disability that makes it impossible to reason with him about why he should eat his vegetables. Good day!

mikiesen answers:

Wow that is deceitful. Try parenting instead.

Ok if you mix vitamin supplements into food and then cook it, you will cook out the vitamins. Vegetables provide phtyonutrients that you can’t get from any supplement along with a small amount of vitamins. But in order to get the real amount of vitamins needed they need to come in supplement form there is not enough in our food anymore the soil is depleted, looks like you’ve got that going with the chewables, but what you’re looking for in veggies is those phytonutrients, you can’t supplement them.

Please tell me you’re not raising your children with advice from yahoo answers, 90% of the people who respond don’t have a clue. Like cooking supplements in food, it doesn’t work.

Rachel asks…

Can a 6 year old have social anxiety with food?

Hoping someone can help. I am very concerned about my 6 year old DD. Since about age 2, she’s always seemed anxious around food and eating at the table and in front of people. Theres a long history of eating issues here that contributed ..DD was born premature at 30 weeks and 3 pounds, had early oral motor issues and eating delays, tight frenulum that was clipped, enlarged tonsils and adenoids that affected eating – taken out at age 3, reflux, food allergies to dairy, recent diagnosis of allergic esophightis and major texture and sensory issues. She’s a major picky eater and has attention issues (maybe inattentive ADD). DH and I assumed her bad behavior at table was behavioral and were always on top of her for eating — mostly because she would eat very little and seemed not to be motivated by hunger. So now we have a child who is very nervous eating at the table, rarely initiates eating when she is at table, eats almost nothing when we go out to eat or at the lunch table at school. She eats best when no one is watching — in the back of the car on the way to school and in front of the tv at night (although sometimes she still needs reminders to focus on her food) Her weight is 47 pounds and she is 46 1/2 inches. She is thin and at the end of the school day she is weak and tired from not eating. I’ve tried taking the pressure off at meals, but she just sits there – twirls her hair, arranges her food and does this nervous distractive talking. Does this sounds like a type of social anxiety or anorexia? And how do I balance taking the pressure off her at the table and ensure she gets her calories? During the school week, she only consumes 700-800 calories. I’ve tried smoothies but she doesn’t like them and nutritional supplements often have dairy protein in them. Suggestions?
Thanks for the responses so far. My biggest issue is that I’m having trouble not asking her to eat – when I give her the opportunity and nothing happens. In order for me to pull back, I need to be comfortable with sending her to school with no breakfast and watching her lose weight – which is agonizing. Every morning, I prepare a healthy meal, let her make choices, try to make it fun and she simply stares at her food or plays with it. Since preschool, she has never eaten lunch at school — maybe a few bites and her thermos of milk but not enough to get her through the day. Eating at a table with other kids has always been a challenge. And somewhere along the line she learned that if she doesn’t want to do something, she doesn’t have to. So its anxiety and control. All she typically has for breakfast (if I don’t push) is a glass of OJ. Snack she eats. Lunch at school is usually a few bites of bolgna and a few bites of veggies plus milk. She has a small snack in the afte

mikiesen answers:

Oh wow, feels like you just described my 5 year old son.
He too was born premature at 29 weeks weighing 2 pound 5oz.
He has had eating issue since day one, and last year got his to tonsils and adenoids removed and tubes put in his ears.
He has NEVER eaten fruit. The texture of it makes him vomit – it doesn’t matter if its fresh, tinned, stewed, shredded, whatever he will gag.
He is very nervous, like your girl, eating around other people. Even his siblings, me and my husband.
He weighs 40.2lb and is also 46 1/2 inches exactly. He is a very pale looking, non energetic boy. He still has naps.
I started introducing “yummy” treat food in with his meals once or twice a week.I don’t have any sort of rule “eat your sandwich and then you can have some chocolate” it’s more, he has the choice to eat what he wants.
We have a sticker reward chart, where if he eats a meal he gets a sticker, if he eats half a meal he gets a small sticker. At the end of the week, if he has 15 or more stars in total (out of 21) he gets to pick an outing he wants to do (for example, pools or the zoo etc). If he doesn’t have 15, he is upset but understands he needs to eat more.
He almost always improves the next week!
Do not punish her if she doesn’t eat, it can be very upsetting for all involved, but especially for her.
This is what my son has on an average day:
Breakfast – either coco pops, pop tarts (I know, very unhealthy but at least he’s getting some food in him!) or toast with whatever spread he likes. Or occasionally pancakes. We are lucky if he eats a slice of toast or half a bowl of coco pops.
Snack – chocolate dairy food yoghurt and a small packet of crisps (lucky to get the yogurt and one or two crisps)
Lunch – sandwich (white bread) with cheese and Vegemite inside. A kid size drink bottle of v8 veggie an fruit juice and some popcorn (we usually get him to eat half a sandwich, his juice and about 1/4 popcorn)
Snack – a biscuit or two if he feels like it.
Dinner – whatever we have for dinner. This is the worst meal of the day, he will sniff the meal and not even touch it. If we are having a treat dinner like McDonald’s, he will eat maybe two chicken nuggets and a few fries. Otherwise he will barely touch his normal meals. Maybe a bite if potato there, and a big if macaroni there but that’s it.

He very much prefers to sit by himself and eat – I don’t think this is anxiety though, just he has always had issues with food and prefers not to see everyone eating so well when he can only manage a few bites.
I’ve taken him to the doctors about this and they say he’s fine – blood tests can back fine so we just have to keep working on it.

I’ve tried and tried everything I can to get him to eat more, but I guess he’s just a very picky child and will hopefully grow out of it.
Just glad I’m not alone on this one!

Lisa asks…

How old should a child be taking dietary supplement?

i have cold sore n i bought superlysine+ for cold sores n immune system… but then it says dietary supplement n im not sure if im suppose to take it

mikiesen answers:

The best way to assure your children get plenty of vitamins and minerals is to emphasize the importance of eating a variety of healthy foods. Offer foods from the different food groups to your kids each day and prepare meals with nutrients that complement each other. That means eating fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, whole grains, nuts, legumes, milk, and cheese.

A healthy diet like that sounds great to many kids, but not to all. Children don’t always eat the way we would like them to eat, and a picky eater might not get all the vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients he or she needs. Some kids don’t eat healthy diets all the time, and a few children rarely eat anything healthy at all. Processed foods and junk foods may not contain much nutritional value, just unhealthy fats, sugar and calories.

A healthy diet is just as important for for children as it is for adults. When a child doesn’t eat enough healthy foods, his or her ability to learn may suffer. Imagine sitting in school all day when your brain and body is starving for good nutrition.

Kids who don’t get all the nutrition they need from their diets can take children’s vitamins as a good way to ensure that they get enough vitamins and minerals. Remember that taking vitamins isn’t a cure-all for an unhealthy diet, so be sure to continue offering healthy food choices to your kids. Even picky eaters will eat some healthy foods.

One common deficiency in children’s diets are the omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs are essential for proper nervous system and brain function, which is very important during those long school days. This essential fatty acid can be found in pumpkin seeds, cold oily ocean fish like tuna, canola oil and flax oil. It can also be taken as a dietary supplement if kids don’t like the strong taste of oily fish or the other foods.
Kids who snub fruits and vegetables may not be getting enough vitamin C, which is important for our immune system and for the connective tissue under our skin. Vitamin C protects us from damaging free radicals and is crucial for brain function.
The B complex vitamins have several functions, some of which are involved with carbohydrate metabolism. A child who has a high refined sugar and starch diet may deplete those important B vitamins.
Some experts believe that minerals are depleted in our soil, and therefore much of our produce may be deficient of minerals as well. For example:
Calcium and magnesium are important for healthy bones, nerves, and muscles.
Zinc is important for our immune system.
Chromium aids carbohydrate metabolism.
A children’s multi-mineral/vitamin dietary supplement, plus a omega 3 essential fatty acids make a good basic dietary supplement program for most children. Some kids with health problems may need more complex dietary supplementation, which should be determined by a doctor, nutritionist or dietitian.
Make sure you purchase high quality children’s dietary supplements for children from a nutrition store or a health food store. Children’s dietary supplements can be in the form of capsules, tablets, liquids, or chewable vitamins. There are even brands that taste like gummy bears or lollipops.

Daniel asks…

How to be a healthy vegetarian girl at age 14?

Okay, I really want to be a vegetarian. I hate eating animals. I mean I cry when I hurt one. Any ways my dad said if I can find healthy ways to substitute meat thats okay. He also said it might effect my life later, like having kids and my period. Also I want to be a lacto-ovo vegetarian. Please don’t say, this isn’t a good idea or thats stupid and stuff like that. This is my personal oppinion. Please help.

mikiesen answers:

Well, Taylor, I’m glad you’re making this choice and I’m glad your dad is supportive. Let’s address a few things to get the story straight.

1. The healthy way to “substitute” meat is just to eat a well-rounded diet. That’s it. Honestly. Meat provides a handful of nutrients that can be found in a vegetarian and even vegan diet, so there’s nothing you’ll magically miss out on by not eating meat. Meat is associated with providing these nutrients: protein, iron, and B12. There are others, but people seem to focus on these three the most. Here’s the break-down:

PROTEIN: Except for oils, protein is found in every food on the planet. Does that sound like you’ll have a protein deficiency? Of course not! On top of this, even omnivorous bodybuilders rely on eggs and dairy because of their high protein content and portability. If bodybuilders, who need extra protein, rely on vegetarian-friendly protein sources, then that should tell you that you won’t be deprived of protein! On top of this, there are also vegan bodybuilders (like myself) who don’t eat any animal products at all (if you don’t like animals being hurt, I suggest you become a vegan because the dairy and egg industries are unbelievably cruel…and those cows/chickens end up being slaughtered for meat anyway). And no, you don’t have to rely on soy and peanut butter. I typically consume neither and I’m still able to make the same muscle gains as I did as an omnivorous bodybuilder. That should tell you something!

IRON: 1oz of beef provides 3% of your daily value of iron. You know what? So do most leafy green vegetables…if not, more! On top of this, even an ounce of tiny little sesame seeds provides a whopping 27% of your daily value of iron (not to mention 23% of your daily value of calcium)! Other seeds and nuts are also great sources of iron and calcium. You may hear that non-meat iron sources are “harder” to digest. If you’re worried about that, simply eat those foods with some citrus, which increases the absorption. A good example is blending a refreshing smoothie with orange juice, then adding a handful of sesame seeds (you can get a jar of these for about $3 or less in any Asian section of a grocery store). Another option is to make a salad using spinach instead of lettuce, then using a citrus-based dressing or just squeezing a lemon over it. You get the idea.

B12: Yes, believe it or not, there are vegetarian and even vegan sources of B12. Those that tell you that you “need to supplement” with it are just ignorant. A vegetarian source of B12 is egg yolks, and vegetarian/vegan sources of B12 are nutritional yeast (tastes like cheese and you can make cheese sauces with it) and natto (a soybean dish that you can make at home).

2. A healthy diet and exercise regimen will affect your life…for the better! No matter if you eat as a vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, kosher, halaal, or raw foodist, you’ll have to eat a proper, well-rounded diet coupled with regular exercise is what you need. After all, if just keeping meat in your diet made you healthy, then people who eat fast food every day would be very healthy instead of incredibly sick and obese, right? No, this won’t affect your ability to have kids. To prove this to you, China and India are the most populated countries on the planet, and both of those countries have a high percentage of vegetarians (I don’t know China’s specifics, but I know that 44% of India is vegetarian, many of which are vegan). Clearly this hasn’t affected their ability to reproduce!
As for your period, again, don’t worry about that. Your period is affected by a few things: stress, hormone level, exercise amount, and calories. Not by the type of food. As an omnivore, my periods were very heavy, sporadic, and painful. As a vegan, my periods are still very heavy, sporadic, and painful. It didn’t change a thing.

Hope this helps, you can always email me if you have more questions.

Questions And Answers On Nutritional Information Pineapple

Cindy asks…

Healthy Recipes that are also filling?

I’ve been working all summer on improving my diet, limiting how much I eat, and working out more. Until the recent flood (in Toronto) I was running several times a week and I’ve lost a bit of weight. But my BMI is still in the High Zone so there is room for improvement.

I’m working full-time so there’s not a lot of time left for food preparation. I also take a bagged lunch with a lunchmeat-sandwich every day, so if I could find a better option I’d use that. I also eat a Fibre cereal for breakfast and supper is wildcard depending on what my parent’s cook.

I’m also using an app that tracks my Nutritional information based on foods I eat, and I’m quite concerned about my Sodium intake. Health Canada recommends 1,500 mg of salt a day and I’m usually in the 4,500 range. Another concern, I never get enough Protein in my diet.

I’m looking for healthy, tasty foods that I can incorporate or replace my staples with. Basically I need:
-Book Suggestions
-Recipes or link to recipes
-Low sodium, High protein
-I cannot eat Fish, Grapefruit, Pineapple, or Tropical fruits

What is the nutritional information for fresh fruit juice?

I am on a juicing diet, and I cant seem to find the nutritional amounts of fresh fruit juice (calories, carbs, sugars, ect.) on Google! So what are the amounts for an apple, an orange, pineapple, strawberries, carrots, celery, and grapes? Thankx 🙂

mikiesen answers:

That info is out there what you need to look up is ‘health benefits of apple juice’ or carrot juice etc…you will find some great websites like livestrong.com.

Secondly the vitamins and minerals in fresh juice is excellent for you but that’s not why we juice..We juice for enzymes…yes enzymes…Enzymes have no nutritional benefit to your body, yes you read that right. Instead these are things your body needs and they are fuel for your body to heal itself and digest and fight cancer and disease. The more you understand about juicing the better. I can never go back to store bought juice because its just sugar water that has no enzymes and barely any vitamins anyway. Enzymes die when they are heated and all store juice is heated. Pasteurized.

James D’Adamo

The dynamics of weight loss are related to the changes your body makes when you follow your genetically tailored diet. There are two factors.
1) First, as your body makes the dramatic shift of eliminating foods that are poorly digested or toxic, the first thing it does is try flush out the toxins that are already there.
Those toxins are mainly deposited in the fat tissue, so the process of eliminating toxins also means eliminating fat.
2) The second factor is the effects that specific foods have on the bodily systems that control weight. Depending on your blood type, the lectin activity of certain foods may do the following:
__ Interfere with the digestive process.
__ Slow down the rate of food metabolism, so you don’t efficiently burn calories
for energy.
__ Compromise the production of insulin.
__ Upset the hormonal balance, causing water retention (oedema), thyroid
disorders and other problems.

Our blood contains aeons of genetic memory–bits and pieces of specific programming, passed on from our ancestors in codes we are still attempting to comprehend. One such code rests within our blood type. Perhaps it is the most important code we can decipher in our attempt to unravel the mysteries of blood and its vital role in
our existence.

__ When you use the individualized characteristics of your blood type as a guide for eating and living you will be healthier, you will easily reach your ideal weight and you will slow the process of ageing.

__ Your blood type is a more reliable measure of your identity than race, culture or geography. It is a genetic blueprint for who you are, a guide to how you can live most fully.

Nancy asks…

Do the nutrition facts on the label of a can of fruit include the juice it is packed in?

I’m trying to keep track of my calorie intake for dietary purposes. When I read the can of pineapple chunks that I just ate to get an idea about how many calories it had, it said it has 70 calories per serving. Does that amount include the juice that it is packed in, or am I eating an unknown amount of extra calories if I also drink the juice in the can along with eating the fruit?

mikiesen answers:

Calorie counts and nutritional information on packages are determined for the entire contents of the can. Fruit packed in juice has a higher calorie content than that packed in water, for this reason. So you can eat the fruit and drink the juice based on the information listed on the side. If you want to figure your intact most accurately, you would need to pour off the liquid and measure it out in servings according to the number listed on the can, and then combine that with the fruit, also divided into the correct number of servings. Both juice and fruit are accounted for, because the sugar in the juice would alter the caloric and carbohydrate content of the fruit.

Actually, supplements, like gymnema sylvestre, cinnamon, fenugreek, and banaba leaf, are cheap. Especially when compared to more medication.

Helena asks…

Best Nutrition & Supplements Online stores that offer free international shipping?

I’m looking for the Best Nutrition & Supplements Online stores that offer free international shipping? I know of bodybuilding.com (no free shipping). I’m mainly after a cheaper way of getting quest bars in Europe.

mikiesen answers:

You’re interested in buying junk in the worst of all ways.

All US federal health agencies warn against using supplements without the recommendation of a health care professional because supplements are not approved by the FDA, are virtually unregulated, do not have the protections afforded foods and drugs, are not recommended by the US National Institute of Health, do not require any testing, are often contaminated, may not even be what the label says, usually contain cheap ingredients, are often over priced scams, have been known to be dangerous, and can have numerous adverse or unwanted side effects.

Don’t use bodybuilding.com. It’s a scam-site for the purposes of selling supplements and is full of bad information. They recently paid a $7 million fine for selling illegal drugs. Check out this list of over 60 dangerous supplement products sold with bogus advertising claims which scam-site bodybuilding.com was forced to recall and take off the market here –> http://www.usrecallnews.com/2009/11/bodybuilding-com-supplements-recalled-may-contain-steroids.html and here –> http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/CriminalInvestigations/ucm305494.htm . More here –> http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm188957.htm?nav=rss and still more here –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE0qAd-8d2Y&feature=plcp and here –> http://www.druginjuriesfirm.com/Blog/2012/May/Bodybuilding-com-Pays-7-million-Fine-for-Food-an.aspx . Their information is bad because they don’t screen it so they have a ton of information to attract the suckers.

Read my answer about supplements here –> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AmA35VDViBrL0y9rSkKcLknty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20111001134224AANB0OV

And, there is no such thing as a credible international store for supplements. Supplmennt makers of the type you’re interested in are not major international manufacturers. They’re small companies selling junk to suckers. You can’t trust their products no matter where you buy them.

Good luck and good health!!

Questions And Answers On Nutrition Articles For High School Students

John asks…

Are Mcgill and Concordia the only english-instructed universities in Montreal?

Because i am planning to study there with my IB diploma, any suggestions? I am generally interested in psychology, but not sure if it will be boring, another choice for me will be food science or nutrition, does it require high chemistry mark for food science? And will good grades in ib psychology help me getting in mcgill?

mikiesen answers:

Hello!

Yes, Concordia and McGill are the only English-language universities in the city of Montreal, with Bishop’s university (in Sherbrooke) the third and final English-language university in the province of Quebec.

I work at Concordia and graduated from there recently as well, so I have to say that it’s a great school. The Psychology program is actually one of our most popular programs at the university, both for the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science.

Psychology is not a boring program in the slightest. Concordia’s BSc is very research-oriented, which is amazing to have at the undergraduate level. There are all sorts of great research projects coming out of Concordia, both on the level of students and professors. If you take a look through the Now Concordia news website (you can find it here http://www.concordia.ca/now/), you can find all sorts of great articles on what’s going on.

University life is really what you make of it, so as long as you’re committed to having fun you know you will. Psych students have all sorts of great activities they get involved with on- and off-campus too, so make sure to take a look at the student associations.

If you complete your full IB diploma you might be considered for additional standing. We don’t put more weight on your IB grades, so an IB student with a 90% average will not be given preference over a non-IB student of the same average, but we offer you the chance to get university credits taken off. (I think this might work the same for McGill, but don’t quote me on that) This means you’ll spend less time in school and will be out earlier!

If you have any questions about Concordia and/or programs/admissions you can drop me a line at facebook.com/CUFutureStudents where I’m a Page Admin.

Hope that helps! 🙂

Davina asks…

What is a good herbal supplement to help relive stress and anxiety?

Im looking for something that you can get at a drugstore or vitamin store. Preferrably not some miracle herb that is sold only on the internet.

mikiesen answers:

Hello… I’m a High school student in Venezuela and i’m very interested in the nutrition career. I know a lot about it and i really want to answer your question. If you’re a little stressed out in this days i really recomend you to drink natural tea… ”Tile”, ”Camomile”or a ”no cafeine tea” could be great for that, ”Mcormick” or ”Lipton” teas are delicious!. Excercise is not a ”natural” or ”herbal” supplement but you could try it!… While excercising your body liberates ”toxics”… Endorphines or in spanish:”endorfinas” wich are… A big part of your stress!. Alimentation, or your ”daily diet” is also a part of the cause of your stress… Try not to hurry when you’re eating, just serve your food and seat! (don’t stand up while eting or don’t eat standed up), try to have good portions in each food and don’t try to take everything or prove everything before eating you’re plate!.

It’s simple, have a balanced diet:

Breakfast (make it simple: wheat toasts, butter, a ”cafe latte” or orange juice and fruit).
Lunch (combine! Protein is essential or grains if vegetarian: Chicken, fish or steak, and a good salad… Like ceasar?, fruit and a good tea for your metabolism).
Dinner (it could include wheat carbohidrates!: Chiken and salad, or just a chicken or ”cappresse” -tomato and mozzarella cheese- sandwich.)

It’s just an example!, just don’t eat the same thing everyday, that’s not balanced at all!. Try to exercise three times a week!… Walk, run, tae-bo or pilates ar great! Or do some yoga!, excercising a little is essential, 35 minutes could be… A little and very productive!. Drink a cup of hot tea, lemon and ”splenda” after lunch and at night before you go to bed, it will bring good results. Aight! I hope it works for you as it works for me! Good luck!…

This article could help you:

” Build your physical reserves.
Exercise for cardiovascular fitness three to four times a week (moderate, prolonged rhythmic exercise is best, such as walking, swimming, cycling, or jogging).
Eat well-balanced, nutritious meals.
Maintain your ideal weight.
Avoid nicotine, excessive caffeine, and other stimulants.
Mix leisure with work. Take breaks and get away when you can.
Get enough sleep. Be as consistent with your sleep schedule as possible.”

David asks…

What could I do with a wildlife conservation with zoo biology degree?

I think I would really enjoy this degree but I am worried about the career prospects afterwards. Zoo keeper is not an option. I would enjoy it, and I know it’s not all about the money but being happy, but I worked out the wages and found out I wouldn’t even be able to afford to rent a simple, small house! The wage is not enough for me to survive nevermind live.
Any ideas?
I am in the UK so only relevant answers please.
