Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Well Put Together"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, engaging, adequate.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I knew a about much of this before, but she presents it in a way that makes the information feel more useful. She does a particularly good job of explaining the reasons you should be cautious about which supplements you take. I have a friend who is a pharmacist who has yelled at me for taking various random supplements before, but he's never explained why this is a problem as clearly as she does here. I also like that addresses the needs of people with special diets such as vegetarians.


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

    Not particularly.


    Any additional comments?

    The description points out that this comes without the supplemental material, and it's true that most of the stuff she refers to can be found very easily online. Still, there were times when I felt like I would have been enjoyed this a bit better if I had access to the guide. That said, this is much more affordable than the full version you'd buy from Great Courses, and I think this is a great introduction to nutrition.

    "Lovin it"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The amount of detail and info that was put out
    As a personal trainer I am always looking for more detailed
    Info to pass on... Nothing worse then getting bad info and then giving it


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Always been interested in this matter... This info just increases my level of interest


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The details of each subject matter was presented by the step. Although it might be scientific but it all makes sense.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing wrong there .....


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Please Please produce another ..... Pretty please.

    "Missing Materials"
    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Roberta H. Anding?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This wasn't a story and this isn't a good review system at all, I am not given the freedom to review.


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

    No I haven't, but I found her easy enough to listen to compared to other lecturers.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It's a good resource for anybody looking to round at their knowledge about proper nutrition.


    Any additional comments?

    Only receives a 2 of 5 stars from me due to heavy reliance on materials which haven't been provided with the course.

    "Guide book?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "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.
