Is nutrition as a major as difficult as everyone makes it out to be?

No, it is not a difficult major-it just has a lot of science courses that you need to take such as microbiology, biochemistry, biology and chemistry, before you start taking upper level nutrition courses. It is not a difficult major if you are interested in the classes you are taking, and also if you put in enough effort and study time (as with any other major). Some people may say Nutrition is too complicated to understand, but if you are really interested in the body, you WILL want to understand the mechanisms behind food and this interest to learn will make the major a lot easier for you to complete. Most nutrition courses teach concepts that are very applicable to everyday life. It is easy to see how concepts that are taught relate to the proper functioning of the body.
