It covered all the major controversies about the basics, e.g., debunking the "set point" theory (that we're all doomed by our genes to whatever our current weight is), the benefits (or lack thereof) of supplements (like creatine), the evidence for and against carb loading, the amount of hydration needed for a spectrum of exercise intensity, the benefits of interval training and how to get it right.
Based on solid science, and very clearly presentedUnlike many other experts who expound on nutrition andFitness, the author didn't have an ax to grind,or anything to sell.
N/A. But the speaker held my attention by using both stories and scientific data in a good mix. Not too dry but not too fluffy either
Not necessarily--but it's interesting and brief enough so you can.
People who want quick fixes (like supplements or diets that trick your metabolism by eating a narrow range of food) will find this course disappointing. The only shortcut that's scientifically valid is interval training (not a primrose path shortcut unfortunately!) . But those who like to complain that they're doomed to be obese because of their inheritance won't like it either. ...But those like me who are tired of the above will like it.
Very very good, but it ended too soon. Seems as if it could be a nice corollary series to the Outlander series. Left some enticing plot threads hanging .
Would like to know what happens to all four protagonists after last scene.
Otherwise , the period atmosphere and detail, the development of characters' personalities, and the performance by DP, were of the quality I've come to expect from Diana G and Davina P.
This last installment in the Safehold series is a cut above the rest in richness of every component: character development, scope , plot twists , descriptions of scenery, etc. I like the expansion of the female character roles too. And the best of all the narrators to date is back too! The plot is not only richer, but woven more tightly. I can't wait for book 7!
Wonderfully embroidered romance
Lord of Scoundrels of course. Same author, same period atmosphere, with meticulous attention to the details of the culture of the time, same tensions--between classes, and between the sexes. And showing how passion can transcend these differences. With help from plucky, talented, and beautiful heroine, bringing errant aristocrat to heel, using his weak spot for love. The plot also reminds me of Austen's Pride and Prejudice
They will reap what they sew !
Plot very artfully builds to its climax
