"It's been agony, but I couldn't have done it any other way." - Quentin Crisp
Informative, engaging, adequate.
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.
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.
Como el titulo lo indica, Nutrition Made Clear es un audio book que explica detalladamente factores y opinions hacerca de nutricion.
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
Always been interested in this matter... This info just increases my level of interest
The details of each subject matter was presented by the step. Although it might be scientific but it all makes sense.
Nothing wrong there .....
Please Please produce another ..... Pretty please.
Yes. In order to understand all of the available information.k
She does an excellent job presenting nutrition information. It is cogent, logical.
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.
This wasn't a story and this isn't a good review system at all, I am not given the freedom to review.
No I haven't, but I found her easy enough to listen to compared to other lecturers.
It's a good resource for anybody looking to round at their knowledge about proper nutrition.
Only receives a 2 of 5 stars from me due to heavy reliance on materials which haven't been provided with the course.
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.
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.
Yes in deed, this book answers so many questions regarding the food we eat and it's travels through our digestive system.
I don't have any comparative books because this is the best I have listen/read, period.
All the chapters.
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.
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.
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.
Learn everything you need to know to get a better understanding of Nutrition as a whole. There are a lots of simple and complicated topics that are covered and Professor Anding does an amazing job of covering all those topics.
