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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Great Learning Tool"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    "A perfect size piece of the nutrition pie"

    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!

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

    Dietition's view point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nutrition Made Clear?

    It was made clear that Buyer Be Ware. Definitely look at the nutrition labels of products, be aware of how many servings in a container, and how many colories/fat per serving.


    What aspect of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance would you have changed?

    The performance of Professor Roberta H. Anding was exceptional.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was interesting to learn that vitamines and supplements are not regulated by FDA and some could be harmful to your health, and that they may have more of an ingredient (or less) than what they advertise or have on the nutrition label.


    Any additional comments?

    Every chapter begins with a classical music score. That made it hard to move around the book to get to a specific topic unless you remember which track contains which topic. I knocked Performance down a couple of stars because of that. There was a time when I wanted to review to a previous topic and I didn't remember where it was. So, it took listening through the music in the beginning of each track before getting to what the title is.

    Story
    "Big Pharma is all over the first hour of this book"
    What would have made Nutrition Made Clear better?

    I've only been able to stomach about 2 hours of this book. The Author spends the first hour ripping all things holistic and natural while promoting how wonderful our government, medicines and doctors are at providing us with the only true source of good health and information. To be fair there is a lot of crap out there, but not all consumers are idiots like this Author portrays.


    Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

    Maybe, I still plan on listening to the rest of this book in hopes of some unbiased material to learn from.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Professor Roberta H. Anding?

    I'm pretty sure the author is bought off by big pharma, so not a chance in hell.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    To be fair, I have only listened to the first two hours. I'm sure there are good things in the book later on. With 15 plus hours of material, it better get better.


    Any additional comments?

    People aren't all idiots and natural health does have a strong place in our society when performed correctly.

    Story
    "S.A.D Focused"

    The author spent time bashing Vegans. She endorsed the Standard American Diet and pushed animal consumption troughout the book. She dismissed plant based alternatives for most things to push supplements. There were few places that she endorsed fruits and vegetables but they were burried. I was hoping for a well rounded course and this did not deliver that.

    "I'd rather be killed"

    Boring to death. Do NOT even think of buying this book or listen to any book read by her ( no idea of her name). She's not engaging whatsoever, it makes you feel like she reading to finish and not to get you into the topic. While listening to the first two chapters, I kept telling myself " it will be over soon", I meant the irritating and annoying materials/ way of reading. I don't wanna be judgemental, but going over some of the later chapters didn't change my mind. Now, when I think of the wasted hour on the two chapters, which by the way I'm not getting back, I consider killing myself.

    "good for US"

    I enjoyed it! But the author only did non-metrics, and overall was too normative about the wives being the cooks.

    on the positive side, it was informative and full of scientific findings.

    "Quite good and comprehensive"

    A quite good and comprehensive 'mainstream' introduction to nutrition, based on solid scientific evidence as available at the time. The format is the usual Great Courses format, i e separate lectures with an introductory snippet of Bach music, and audience applause at the end - not distracting at all, but feels quite natural. The lecturer is heard perfectly clearly throughout, and delivers the text in an engaging style.

    Clear. Comprehensive. Credible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good practical advice for every day healthy living. Not bound to some fluffy vegan lifestyle or something like that.

    "Good information - rather too American"

    This provides a very thorough grounding on general nutrition. I liked the narrator, very clear and obviously knows what she is talking about. But it is aimed at an American audience and all the references are to American websites, research etc. Still interesting, but I would prefer an English version.

    "Simple good messages."

    Good balanced health advice with some evidence quoted to back them. Good understanding of the human body. No real dramatic or particularly interesting messages here. Quite a lot of repetition as you get to the later chapters.

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

    Changed My Life


    Which character – as performed by Professor Roberta H. Anding – was your favourite?

    Herself


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook seems well balanced and a pleasure to listen to. A lady with rich experience guides you through the myths of diet, and takes a scientific approach which, of course, is always open to review. Well worth it, and something on which I could make positive steps in my life.

    I particularly like the integration of exercise and nutrition in the thinking- an holistic approach built on reductionist building blocks. Scientific in places, but Roberta guides you through.

    A tonic.

    "Very informative, too much for the layperson?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Some friends, yes.


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

    n/a


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Could you see Nutrition Made Clear being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure some people would find this book fascinating, personally the book had simply far too much detail on vitamins and minerals in particular. I wanted to learn about building a healthy diet not the minutia of how many iu of every vitamin and mineral.

    Would you listen to Nutrition Made Clear again? Why?

    Have listened twice as there is a lot of information to process.


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

    No nonsense delivery, facual with enough science to keep me interested. A really comprehensive introduction to nutrition.


    Any additional comments?

    Irritating that the accompanying 'work-book' referred to in the lectures is not available, It's pretty impossible to remember all the information and would be good to have reference material
