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. These 36 in-depth lectures explore the fundamentals of good nutrition and offer a practical guide for applying these fundamentals to your lifestyle. The power of nutrition lies not just in grasping the concepts behind it, but also in applying those concepts to daily living. This means learning where to find authoritative nutrition information, mastering the science behind nutrients and the body, recognizing what your personal daily requirements of each nutrient should be, building a distinct exercise regimen, and more.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    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.

    "A perfect size piece of the nutrition pie"

    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!

    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.

    "Don't bother if you're Paleo"

    If you subscribe to an ancestral way of eating then this is definitely not for you. Save your credit.

    "And again, narration matters"

    Lots of good information about nutrition and practical advice on how to implement changes for sustainable improvements.

    The lecturer is a bit repetitive with a few key phrases, such as 'and again' among others. If you can tune that part out then it's decent.

    "S.A.D Focused"

    The author spent time bashing Vegans. She endorsed the Standard American Diet and pushed animal consumption troughout the book. She dismissed plant based alternatives for most things to push supplements. There were few places that she endorsed fruits and vegetables but they were burried. I was hoping for a well rounded course and this did not deliver that.
