I took this course simply as an elective and decided to add a Nutritional Sciences major to my degree because I loved this course so much. I think that it is a class that is super useful and applicable in your everyday life. If you are looking for an interesting elective that you have to spend a little time studying outside of class and attend lectures, then this is it.
This class breaks down the basics of nutrition. If you are a nutritional sciences, food science, or dietetics majors TAKE GOOD NOTES. I promise you that you WILL be referring back to them in the future for SEVERAL of your courses.
I love Dr. Mobley and have continued to take several courses taught by him. He loves to crack a dad joke here and there. He is also known to sometimes give extra credit on random days for attending class because attendance is not mandatory, but he really appreciates when students come to class. He also does "5 Minute Rewinds" every lecture of the most important material from the previous lecture, these are crucial to study for the exam. He also records exam reviews and gives out study guides. WATCH THE REVIEW AND DO THE STUDY GUIDES. He really only wants to see students succeed, I see no reason why anyone would get less than a B or B+ in this course.
Go to class. Dr. Mobley loves to write and draw all over his powerpoint slides. My favorite note taking method for his class is to download the powerpoints as PDFs and write on them as he goes through lecture. When I took this course, I wrote my notes on Word Documents, but if I could go back in time, I would have done them this way as I was not able to draw the pictures that he wrote on the board.

The class itself is not difficult and I enjoyed her lectures. Despite being online there is a set time you have to go to the zoom meetings and attendance is mandatory (there is a grade). The exams, however, are very difficult if you do not read the textbook cover to cover as the questions are ultra-specific. She gives extra credit though so it isn't majorly difficult to get an A
The basics of nutrition, its very interesting to delve into.

The class wasn’t hard. The only thing is you actually need to read the textbook in order to do well on her exams. I read the textbook and made a quizlet of stuff to remember while reading. I got A’s on all my exams. It does get a bit time consuming. There aren’t a lot of assignments tho, so that’s nice.
It’s nutrition. I did learn a few important things about nutrition from the class.
She’s really nice but isn’t the greatest lecturer. Her lectures alone aren’t good enough to do good on her exams.
Reading the textbook is better test prep than watching the lectures. Make sure to at least read her study guides.
