Top Fuel for Top Performance (TFTP) is not a replacement for detailed, individualized counselling from a dietitian as would be needed for any individual requiring a specialized diet due to health issues (e.g. food allergies, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, etc.). Similarly, counselling from a dietitian may be beneficial for those individuals who restrict food selection for special diets (e.g. vegetarian or vegan). 

HRMS Code is provided upon course completion.
