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.

If Audible supplied the companion guide that is intended to accompany this recording.
She is an excellent and clear lecturer who knows how to vocally emphasize important take-home points.
Don't believe Audible when it states: "Disclaimer: Please note that this recording may include references to supplemental texts or print references that are not essential to the program and not supplied with your purchase." The companion guide IS ESSENTIAL to truly put to practice what is suggested. You only get half the product by buying this recording from Audible. I was very excited when Audible made "The Great Courses" available. "Nutrition Made Clear" was the first and last of this series I will buy unless companion texts are made available. Audible must have made some cheap deal with the publisher when it promised not to supply the companion text. I have purchased other lecture-based audible recordings from Audible in which the companion texts were made available as PDFs. Why not "The Great Courses" series? 4.5 stars for the book; -3.5 stars for Audible and its peddling half of a product and charging for a whole product.
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!
Yes, but I would never purchase one with anything but a credit, they aren't worth full price since the accompanying materials for the courses are never provided.
This wasn't a story and this isn't a good review system at all, I am not given the freedom to review.
No I haven't, but I found her easy enough to listen to compared to other lecturers.
It's a good resource for anybody looking to round at their knowledge about proper nutrition.
Only receives a 2 of 5 stars from me due to heavy reliance on materials which haven't been provided with the course.
I love the information in these lectures but there is a guide book that keeps being referred to that I can't seem to find anywhere. So having something that seems to come with this 85$ product would be nice.
The book was very detailed and informative but not boring. The author is not just "pushing" supplements or a special diet, the purpose is to provide the information for the listener to make his own decisions.
Yes in deed, this book answers so many questions regarding the food we eat and it's travels through our digestive system.
I don't have any comparative books because this is the best I have listen/read, period.
All the chapters.
I started looking at how I ate as a child and compared it to how I eat now and I can say I have lost some of those habits instilled in me from my parents, you know chew (100 times) your food slowly, sit at the table with no TV present, fruit/veggies at every meal, only water on the table (no sugar drinks) and the big one small plates. The fast food crave was not around even when we would buy a burger we had to wait for our individual order to be cooked nothing was ready for you under a heat lamp.
I would recommend this book to be in your top 10...to be revisited and discussed yearly. I would like to purchased the guide that comes along with the book...disadvantage when purchased as an audible.
Dr Anding does an excellent job of breaking the humongous and complicated topic of Nutrition down into easily understood chunks that are just the right amount in length. Her explinations of how the body processes and makes use of the food we eat makes it real clear that it's more about how Nutrient Dense a food is and NOT simply a matter of amount of calories. She also helps in explaining portion size and how the perfect plate should look vs what we see in restaurants and what's marketed to us everyday.
Learn everything you need to know to get a better understanding of Nutrition as a whole. There are a lots of simple and complicated topics that are covered and Professor Anding does an amazing job of covering all those topics.
I will be listening to this one again. Some things are not in accord with recent breakthroughs but that's to be expected and it's good to hear a professional dietitian's viewpoint. After all, if we only wanted to hear our own prejudiced ideas, we need only listen to ourselves. Lots of valuable information here and it's worth keeping an open mind while listening.
