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.

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.

    "Very informative"
    What did you love best about Nutrition Made Clear?

    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.


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

    No.

    "A must Read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes in deed, this book answers so many questions regarding the food we eat and it's travels through our digestive system.


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

    I don't have any comparative books because this is the best I have listen/read, period.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the chapters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Clearly explains what the body with your food"
    What did you love best about Nutrition Made Clear?

    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.

    "Encore"

    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.

    "Not Like My First Nutrition Course"

    Over 40 years ago I took a Nutrition course as part of the required curriculum for my nursing degree. I remember next to nothing from it and not just because it was so long ago. It was boring. I am now teaching nursing and a general consensus among faculty is that a nutrition course is no longer needed. Valid or not, this one is not to miss! This course is full of current research, relevant information for making choices, and presented in an excellent manner. It is long but worth every minute. A huge disappointment is that the Guidebook referred to frequently is not available. That would be so nice for reviewing.

    "Crystal Clear"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As someone whose job success is dependent on my physical performance, this series gave me essential information that I was missing regarding how to feed myself for optimal performance. Professor Anding is a great speaker and backs up her claims with evidence as well as interesting stories and examples that she has seen in her own practice. I recommend this series to anyone who cares about their body - from seasoned athletes to individuals who lead a more sedentary lifestyle. She emphasizes a realistic, whole food approach and incorporates the importance of exercise in order to lead a truly healthy life.

    "The Workbook should be Downloadable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed some of the book, but some was very biased. I think the workbook is essential in making sense of some of this information. Could it not be available as a pdf? If not, then i think I will go to Great Courses to purchase the CD/workbook instead.

    "Excellent science-based look at nutrition"

    This series of lectures provided a broad overview from a science-based perspective. It was great to hear myths debunked, hear the nuanced ideas that are clearly coming from a point of "getting it correct" rather than a goal to "buy into my diet strategy", and frankly cover the span of nutrition information from food groups, nutrients, and supplements to diets, common health issues, and exercise.

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

    Informative, Unbiased, Fascinating


    What about Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance did you like?

    She was lively, interesting, and sounded very natural.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful. I will listen to this series multiple times.
