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.
None come to mind
What food does for you.
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.
Since I can't get the coursebook she refers to in each lecture, I plan to go back and listen to all the lectures and make my own notes.
It's not a story book
No scenes, either
It's great information that every living human needs. It's about longevity, good health and getting smart about what's important.
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!
In particular, the author spends a bunch of time talking about how diabetes is the biggest risk factor for heart disease, and then says to reduce fat intake to avoid heart disease. If the risk factor is diabetes, then the most likely culprit is sugar, not fat. Recent science and doctors are now suggesting that fat does not cause heart disease and that sugar does.
