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.

    "needs some updating"
    Any additional comments?

    Clinical nutrition is a moving target -- this course is a good for the fundamentals of understanding nutritional concepts but some of the current research is lacking -- also I was particularly amazed at her lack of understanding of a vegetarian and vegan diet considering the ADA position on it. I was glad to here the focus on whole foods.

    "High-level overview on obesity and vitamins"

    Large part is dedicated to vitamins and minerals but the takeaway points are a little obscure. Very large part is on obesity, diabetes, etc. This lecture series seems better for those with poor nutrition and lifestyle trying to understand and ease into good nutrition. If you're looking for a deep scientific review of nutrition, thats not here. Many different studies are mentioned, but almost all seem inconclusive.

    "Great Course - PDF GUIDE BOOK IS INCLUDED"
    Any additional comments?

    Learned a lot from this course and found it helpful. I would recommend it if you're interested in the science surrounding nutrition.

    For those who complained about the course not offering the PDF guide book... it's there. Go to the Audible website and login, then go to "Library" click "My Books". Expand the Nutrition Made Clear section, using the small arrow on the left hand side of the book cover image. You will find the PDF Guide and any other supplemental materials.

    "Passes along a complex level of information that is easy to understand"

    Ms. Anding did a great job of communication science, myths, and the benefits of nutrition and how it impacts our health, mind, and day to day living.
    Science has moved along way down the road in this area. Time for an updated version.

    "Can't get past the pompous attitude"
    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Roberta H. Anding?

    No she is a horrible lecturer so self important and pompous.


    What was most disappointing about The Great Courses’s story?

    The lecturer kept talking about how she works with these NFL players and how she helped them. I don't care the class is about Nutrition not about how you have a high profile job.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Professor Roberta H. Anding?

    Dr. Oz


    What character would you cut from Nutrition Made Clear?

    Roberta H. Anding


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Great Courses, but this one is so disappointing. I was really looking forward to learning more about nutrition, but she is so snooty and self-important. I couldn't listen to one more minute of it!!!

    "Informative yet annoying."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Again, keep in mind, and again, keep in mind, an again, keep in mind, low and behold, this lady lecturer needs a speech coach ! Low and behold her lazy diction just might drive you out of your mind. Despite this her lectures are rather informative and easy to comprehend. She comes across as somewhat open minded while her knowledge remains quite mainstream. I did find her support of artificial sweeteners and statin drugs unappetizing and out of date.

    "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.

    "Well done"
    What did you love best about Nutrition Made Clear?

    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.

    "I wish I had heard this years ago"

    I loved the way that Roberta referred to science but made it easy to understand and practical. What she talks about can be implemented in to daily life easily. The supplement and diet industry would hate it if we all followed the sensible advice in this series. I have lost 7lbs in 4 weeks without any real effort and feel the healthiest I have ever been.

    "some annoying habits"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would hesitate to recommend it in the audio version because not because of the content but because the way the lecture is given


    What didn’t you like about Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance?

    Every lecturer will have some habits in the way they speak and that is quite natural. Unfortunately, noone in the recording team let Professor Anding know that she uses 'and so again'''yet again' 'and again' as well as 'so keep in mind' 100s if not 1000s of times...I was determined not to get disturbed by it, but after a while it really got annoying ...sorry
