Question USMLE Nutrition

Does anyone know what I should review for nutrition? I hear that there is a focus on nutrition on the exam however I'm not sure what resources to utilize to do well on this topic.

Help Nutrition where to study from?

Hello,
friends have told me that they get couple of nutrition questions concerning calorie intake, add and substract calories from a vignette they give you and similar stuff, even though they are not that much i think that they can be easy points, any good resource anyone?

In my exam I had questions that really concerned food, and FA or Uworld never mentioned those. Like there will be actual food items listed as answers and question would be present as patient has this and that labs abnormalities and what food he needs to avoid or increase intake and I had like 5 of those, the calories calculation is actually very easy, just remember how many calories in fat, protein and carbs.
I cannot tell you the specifics of the questions but it kinda they want you to know what different food contain I guess.

Thanks for replying, ill be covering that stuff, the calories thing there a tiny part on biochem KLN lol, but enough to cover those calories formulas.

the part on the food you mention i guess is how much about nutrition you know overall i dont know where to cover that.
thanks again
