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.

This is the kind of nutritional science I've been trying to access for years. It's detailed, science based and exhaustive, and, in this format, affordable. Wish there was more reference material available but I kind of understand why it's not provided; after all, you want that, you should get the full course at The Great Courses. Good Job Prof. Anding.
This is a course that is a must read (lesson). Help to live better, a clue to possibly some medical problems that doctors miss. And most of all could mean $$$$ savings and wasted time buying vitamins, supplements, and wasted time exercises get ineffectively.
I found this book to be highly informative and professional. There was so much information that I found directly applicable to my own diet. I was surprised at how many incorrect things I had been doing. This book will be used as as reference and reread several times.
pretty good but...
one class doesn't have all of the answers
The professor says that you can only get vitamin b-12 from animal products but I have found through some research that it is also in nutritional yeast. Also there is a good amount of calcium in black strap molasses.
This audiobook ranks very high among the nonfiction audiobooks I've listened to.
The nutrition secret
Lots of valuable information, it's not intended to be a one time listen or a listen from cover to cover in one sitting. But you will find your patience well rewarded with usable information provided in an entertaining & easy to understand manner.
I recommend this to anyone I know that has an interest, but lacks a grounded understanding of nutrition.
This course really altered the direction of my life--- it was an eye-opening experience. Mrs. Anding is so well-balanced in her views and understanding of nutrition. I'll never go back to treating my body so horribly again. This course made me aware of my health and what I was putting into my body. As someone who has always looked for shortcuts in dieting, and "weird tricks" to beat the system, I've completely reversed course and am so excited about all the wonderful nutrition I've introduced to my life. I'm excited about a constant 1-2 lb/week weight loss. Before I went through this course, I would have given up the first week that I didn't lose at least 5 lbs. I've also stopped depending on supplements for my vitamin/mineral needs and started looking for real food sources to meet these needs.
Thank you Audible and the Great Courses for offering this. It contains so much information and is perfectly balanced. I really hope more of these health-based courses are made available to us.
As a health conscious person I have done a fair amount of personal research about good nutrition but am always frustrated by not knowing whether the sources I am reading are reliable or subject to industry/political/personal bias. This course was an excellent way to synthesize the patchy areas of my knowledge about nutrition and give me a reliable, useful overview of nutrition science. The professor was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to listen to, if not riveting. I would recommend this course to others interested in their overall health.
It is a strugle to live amongst others who are not concerned in any way with healthy lifestyle. It is agonizing to see the population committing slow suicide. Take this book, absorb it and apply the lessons. In good conscience you will be able to say I did what was right for my self and my children won't suffer illnesses because of me.
