If Audible supplied the companion guide that is intended to accompany this recording.
She is an excellent and clear lecturer who knows how to vocally emphasize important take-home points.
Don't believe Audible when it states: "Disclaimer: Please note that this recording may include references to supplemental texts or print references that are not essential to the program and not supplied with your purchase." The companion guide IS ESSENTIAL to truly put to practice what is suggested. You only get half the product by buying this recording from Audible. I was very excited when Audible made "The Great Courses" available. "Nutrition Made Clear" was the first and last of this series I will buy unless companion texts are made available. Audible must have made some cheap deal with the publisher when it promised not to supply the companion text. I have purchased other lecture-based audible recordings from Audible in which the companion texts were made available as PDFs. Why not "The Great Courses" series? 4.5 stars for the book; -3.5 stars for Audible and its peddling half of a product and charging for a whole product.
I actually used this course to help me study for my nutrition exam. The Lecturer uses practical examples to explain the complexity of the human body and what we need to know about fuelling and restoring it correctly.Very easy to listen to and follow.Highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in knowing the basics of nutrition and how our bodies work.
I have NO time to read so Audible is perfect! I listen while commuting and even at the gym. My interests vary from month to month.
I loved this book. She was easy to listen too. Explained well without too much detail or being confusing. I am just a normal person not anyone working in the industry who needed this course. I wanted to understand this subject better and now I definitely do!
Yes, it's something that we could all learn from - here is a PDF I found online - I hope it helps.
the author does a good job

Informative, engaging, adequate.
I knew a about much of this before, but she presents it in a way that makes the information feel more useful. She does a particularly good job of explaining the reasons you should be cautious about which supplements you take. I have a friend who is a pharmacist who has yelled at me for taking various random supplements before, but he's never explained why this is a problem as clearly as she does here. I also like that addresses the needs of people with special diets such as vegetarians.
The description points out that this comes without the supplemental material, and it's true that most of the stuff she refers to can be found very easily online. Still, there were times when I felt like I would have been enjoyed this a bit better if I had access to the guide. That said, this is much more affordable than the full version you'd buy from Great Courses, and I think this is a great introduction to nutrition.
The amount of detail and info that was put out
As a personal trainer I am always looking for more detailed
Info to pass on... Nothing worse then getting bad info and then giving it
Always been interested in this matter... This info just increases my level of interest
The details of each subject matter was presented by the step. Although it might be scientific but it all makes sense.
Nothing wrong there .....
Please Please produce another ..... Pretty please.
Yes. In order to understand all of the available information.k
She does an excellent job presenting nutrition information. It is cogent, logical.
Yes, but I would never purchase one with anything but a credit, they aren't worth full price since the accompanying materials for the courses are never provided.
This wasn't a story and this isn't a good review system at all, I am not given the freedom to review.
No I haven't, but I found her easy enough to listen to compared to other lecturers.
It's a good resource for anybody looking to round at their knowledge about proper nutrition.
Only receives a 2 of 5 stars from me due to heavy reliance on materials which haven't been provided with the course.
I love the information in these lectures but there is a guide book that keeps being referred to that I can't seem to find anywhere. So having something that seems to come with this 85$ product would be nice.
