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.

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!
A lot of misconstrued information that has been updated quite a while back. Not sure if it will help anyone.
Yes - I have already heard some other very well presented and informative courses.
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.
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.
I recommend this to anyone I know that has an interest, but lacks a grounded understanding of nutrition.
This course really altered the direction of my life--- it was an eye-opening experience. Mrs. Anding is so well-balanced in her views and understanding of nutrition. I'll never go back to treating my body so horribly again. This course made me aware of my health and what I was putting into my body. As someone who has always looked for shortcuts in dieting, and "weird tricks" to beat the system, I've completely reversed course and am so excited about all the wonderful nutrition I've introduced to my life. I'm excited about a constant 1-2 lb/week weight loss. Before I went through this course, I would have given up the first week that I didn't lose at least 5 lbs. I've also stopped depending on supplements for my vitamin/mineral needs and started looking for real food sources to meet these needs.
Thank you Audible and the Great Courses for offering this. It contains so much information and is perfectly balanced. I really hope more of these health-based courses are made available to us.
As a health conscious person I have done a fair amount of personal research about good nutrition but am always frustrated by not knowing whether the sources I am reading are reliable or subject to industry/political/personal bias. This course was an excellent way to synthesize the patchy areas of my knowledge about nutrition and give me a reliable, useful overview of nutrition science. The professor was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to listen to, if not riveting. I would recommend this course to others interested in their overall health.
It is a strugle to live amongst others who are not concerned in any way with healthy lifestyle. It is agonizing to see the population committing slow suicide. Take this book, absorb it and apply the lessons. In good conscience you will be able to say I did what was right for my self and my children won't suffer illnesses because of me.
This got me from Arizona to Nebraska and almost all the way back. Sad when it ended halfway through Utah. Started it over. I loved listening to the reader. I learned a lot of things and highly recommend this to the average "nutritionist". I'm going to call myself that from now on!
