    "Very informative and comprehensive"

    The course was fabulous and the author narrating it gave it so much authenticity.

    I also found the guidebook online. So I will have that for reference. I hope they don't read this and go on a campaign to make it disappear.

    "Best course so far"

    I have listened to four or five other courses in the Great Courses series and have experienced varying degrees of satisfaction. This course, however, is easily the best yet.

    The lecturer is engaging and I rarely found myself "checking out" while listening. She is incredibly well-qualified and I loved the way she organized each lecture.

    I honestly will likely listen to this series again in the future. There is so much to take in and she does not skimp on detail.

    "Great Information"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    The information in this book changed my eating styles, exercise and overall outlook of food, nutrition and overall health. Some sections get a little technical, however I listened anyway to get what little nuggets I could pick up on.

    Story
    "Choppy"
    What did you love best about Nutrition Made Clear?

    A lot of valuable and useful information by a very qualified individual.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It's a lecture so there is not much of a climax.


    Did Professor Roberta H. Anding do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not really. Her delivery was very choppy. She tended to stutter too much. It became somewhat annoying. She also tends to use the word "Americans" excessively. I would imagine there are people other than Americans who are interested in nutrition.


    Any additional comments?

    The professor if very knowledgeable and qualified in this field. The tone of her voice was OK. However, the delivery was not to my liking.

    Story
    "Great! This needs to be taught in high school."
    Where does Nutrition Made Clear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top half, I feel it was very informative but understandably not entertaining. It was truly a lecture by an educated prof.


    What other book might you compare Nutrition Made Clear to and why?

    Any of the great courses lectures, this is not really a book.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I felt I could only do one or two lessons at a time and then come back to it later.

    Story
    "So much great information!!!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Roberta helped me get motivated to get started on strength training. And so far, combing that with limiting my portion sizes - in the past month, I've had the most success I've had in ages... so...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Half your plate should be vegetables, 1/4 lean protein, and 1/4 carbohydrate. 2 days of strength training and 5 days of 1/2 hour of moderate exercise - GET ON IT.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to hold off on reviewing this until I finished, but all along the way I was recommending it to folks.

    I learned so much from this - from just the interesting mechanics of how oatmeal lowers cholesterol to confirming what I was doing right and what I was doing wrong.

    I really appreciated Roberta's open mind to different diet preferences (pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan) and the format of the lectures personal story, information, data, studies, conclusions, FAQs - though sometimes the anecdote at the start got a little... meh. I see the value of it, but could happily skip them.

    For other Audible members complaining that the lecture notes often referred to were not included - for the most part, you can do without them, but occasionally she does say 'you'll find this or that data in the notes' a quick google pulls them up in PDF form.

    I have to admit - at the end, I got a little sad during her farewell, after 18+ hours with the lady, you start to feel like she's a friend.
