Publisher's Summary

Nutrition is essential to living a healthy, happy, and successful life. Yet a world of misconceptions and promises of easy results too often stands in our way - and can even be harmful to our overall health.

The key is to cut through the noise and find the medically backed, statistically proven information about healthy eating and living.

A dietitian and award-winning lecturer, Professor Anding gives you a wealth of invaluable tips you can easily apply to your own eating habits. You'll learn how to calculate your own dietary needs, how to create your own nutrition and exercise plans, how to recognize when a product or service is really a health fraud, and more.

Crafted with the needs of individual people in mind, this course is both a fascinating learning experience and the perfect investment in your personal health - one that will educate you, motivate you, and reward you for the rest of your life.

    Story
    "Big Pharma is all over the first hour of this book"
    What would have made Nutrition Made Clear better?

    I've only been able to stomach about 2 hours of this book. The Author spends the first hour ripping all things holistic and natural while promoting how wonderful our government, medicines and doctors are at providing us with the only true source of good health and information. To be fair there is a lot of crap out there, but not all consumers are idiots like this Author portrays.


    Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

    Maybe, I still plan on listening to the rest of this book in hopes of some unbiased material to learn from.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Professor Roberta H. Anding?

    I'm pretty sure the author is bought off by big pharma, so not a chance in hell.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    To be fair, I have only listened to the first two hours. I'm sure there are good things in the book later on. With 15 plus hours of material, it better get better.


    Any additional comments?

    People aren't all idiots and natural health does have a strong place in our society when performed correctly.

    "Nutrition Made Clear"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Dietition's view point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nutrition Made Clear?

    It was made clear that Buyer Be Ware. Definitely look at the nutrition labels of products, be aware of how many servings in a container, and how many colories/fat per serving.


    What aspect of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance would you have changed?

    The performance of Professor Roberta H. Anding was exceptional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was interesting to learn that vitamines and supplements are not regulated by FDA and some could be harmful to your health, and that they may have more of an ingredient (or less) than what they advertise or have on the nutrition label.


    Any additional comments?

    Every chapter begins with a classical music score. That made it hard to move around the book to get to a specific topic unless you remember which track contains which topic. I knocked Performance down a couple of stars because of that. There was a time when I wanted to review to a previous topic and I didn't remember where it was. So, it took listening through the music in the beginning of each track before getting to what the title is.

    Story
    "Many Errors in Thought Process"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A lot of misconstrued information that has been updated quite a while back. Not sure if it will help anyone.


    Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

    Yes - I have already heard some other very well presented and informative courses.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nutrition Made Clear?

    Can't remember there are so many that after listening for an hour or two, I just gave up and decided this was not for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a holistic and integrative practitioner board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Found this to be full of outdated information and not as relevant as I had hoped for.

    "Excellent Nutrition book to listen to"
    Would you listen to Nutrition Made Clear again? Why?

    Yes, I have listened to this book multiple times and will again. She made nutrition so very easy to understand and only wish she created more courses on tape or books of reference.


    What does Professor Roberta H. Anding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am able to listen to this course over and over again while walking.

    "Well done, Dr. Anding!"
    What did you love best about Nutrition Made Clear?

    Timeless information-- you can tell that she understands every bit of what she's saying. I really did feel like I was back in college in a lecture.


    Would you recommend Nutrition Made Clear to your friends? Why or why not?

    Definitely-- I used it in conjunction with other books borrowed from the library for a concise understanding of nutrition/health. There was a lot of information that made perfect sense once heard, but that I had no idea about.


    Which character – as performed by Professor Roberta H. Anding – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't laugh or cry, but along with other information/books I reviewed, it caused me to make a positive life change and understand HOW TO TO IT and WHY IT WAS IMPORTANT.

    Sensible explanations that are easy to understand. Professor Anding has a very good narrating voice, is easy to understand and listen too. I learned something new at each lecture.


    What other book might you compare Nutrition Made Clear to and why?

    None come to mind


    Which character – as performed by Professor Roberta H. Anding – was your favorite?

    Not applicable


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What food does for you.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be valuable to have some written material to go with this but not essential.

    This is a great overview of basic foundations in nutrition. The lecturer presents a wide range of sensible information that sparks further interest in the topic. She shares her knowledge with passion and clarity, resulting in a lecture that is both easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to.

    It's not a story book


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No scenes, either


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    It's great information that every living human needs. It's about longevity, good health and getting smart about what's important.

    "Needs guidebook referred to"

    Prof Anding makes frequent references to the "guidebook which came with your course". This is apparently more than simply a list of the lectures (which, in itself, would have been very useful) but actually includes some worksheets to help you figure out, for example, how many calories you need to maintain your weight.

    I also agree with the other reviewer who mentionned that he found the classical music introducing each chapter very irritating and unnecessary particularly since it made it take longer to get to the chapter title. Of course, if we had the guidebook for the lecture series, that would not have mattered - as much.

    I did write Audible Tech Support and was told the Tech Support person would look for an audible version of the guidebook ... not exactly what is required, here. I looked on the Great Courses website for supplemental materials but it was not available there, either.

    C'mon Audible/Amazon ... fix this.
